What To Do If Your Mobilephone is Stolen

What To Do If Your Mobilephone is Stolen - Loosing a mobilephone is not an uncommon thing for anyone in this world. You must have heard that your friend or any other person forget his or her phone in a hotel, car, garden, park. and when he or she goes to pick up phone, mobilephone was not there where he or she left it. Now what to do if your mobilephone is stolen.

In many countries like UK, there is mobilephone database, which can prevent lost or stolen mobilephones from being used on any mobile network, thus these stolen mobilephones are worthless to anyone. This system exactly works like a stolen credit card, whenever you loose your credit card, you simply make a phone call to your requisite bank to deactivate your credit card. Similar is the case with mobilephones, you call your service provider and give them a specific number to deactivate your stolen mobilephone. This system applies to both prepay and postpaid packages.

Every mobile in this world has a unique code called as International mobile equipment identity (IMEI Number). This is a unique serial number of every mobilephone. If you provide this serial number to your network operator, they will deactivate your stolen mobilephone. No one can use your mobilephone even if the person who has stolen your mobile, insert new sim in the mobile. This mobile will be useless for all networks or service providers. All mobile network operators will deactivate or disable the phone by reference to the unique IMEI nomber of the mobilephone.

Now question is how to get this IMEI number? This number can normally be found under the battery of mobilephone (looking something like 004400/01/123456/7). You can also get this number from the phone software, by entering following usefull code. Simply write down on your mobilephone following code.* # 0 6 #

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen after pressing send button, or in some phones it comes automatically just by writing * # 0 6 #. So whenever you buy a mobilephone, get this code from the battery or simply write above code on your phone and get IMEI number.

After this record this 15 digit IMEI number and your phone number on your personal note book, place this book at a safe place and thats it. Now suppose if you lost your phone, make a call to your service provider and give them your phone number and this particular key,i.e IMEI number. They will deactivate your stolen mobilephone. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobilephones.

Remember your mobilephone is very valuable for you. You may have very important data stored in it. So take care of your mobilephones. Don't use your mobile in crowded areas or where you might feel unsafe. Govenment is trying to encourage mobilephone companies to give more options for improving mobilephone security.

So remember this simple code * # 0 6 #. Tell all your friends and colleagues to get IMEI number with the help of this code. If all of us simply follow this tip of making mobile secure, believe me no one will try to steal anyone's mobilephone.
