We often get emails and message from users telling ” I have lost my mobile phone today what can I do ? ”
The sad truth is that you can’t do much after you have lost the phone.
You can block the phone number and phone with your Operator like Airtel or Vodafone by providing your IMEI number which is a unique serial number for each mobile phone.
It must be present in your bill if you purchased the phone from a shop
But thieves swap SIM cards the moment they steal the phone .. So your number wont be active anymore.
You can make use of mobile theft tracker like the bpl tracker
or more advanced applications which are available today ..
Only the Cops must tell us if its possible to trace a stolen phone using just the IMEI number
Its your responsibility to handle your phone safely when in public places ..
Are you a victim ? please share your experience ..
