Re: blocking of mobile using emi number

All you can do is report it to your mobile operator. They will possibly block the IMEI number from using their network.

If you're sure the phone has been stolen and not just lost, report it to local police as well.

Unfortunately there's no such thing as a global database subscribed to by all operators blocking the use of a mobile phone on any network.

The main thing you're worried about, though, is someone running up a bill on your phone. That won't happen if you inform your operator that the phone was stolen. They will block the SIM card since that is what makes the phone "yours".

Re: blocking of mobile using imei number

Hi Venu,

This is a User-to-User forum ... so no one here can do that.. In fact even Nokia will not do that for you.. You will have to contact your Operator and see if they can help you... but you will have to make a Police Complain for that and produce a copy of that for the Operator to take any action...

Re: blocking of mobile using imei number

All you can do is to report it to the police, and then also to your network operator (carrier, service provider), and possibly also your insurance company (in case you have specific insurance, or it is covered by some general "home insurance").

 

The operator might block the IMEI, if you report it as stolen (they may require proof-of-purchase and a copy of the police report), and they might share the list of blocked IMEIs with other operator's, but there are so many phones in use (billions) and so many reported as lost/stolen, that I suspect managing such lists starts to be very impractical (i.e., not done).

Re: blocking of mobile using imei number

Hello,

 

  I lost my Nokia N8 in Bangalore, India. It was stolen in the public bus. I have the IMEI number with me and I have filed a police complaint. But when I approached the service provider(vodafone), they are telling they will not be able to block it. Can anyone help me in this regard? what should be my next step?

 

Thanks in advance.

Jackey

Re: blocking of mobile using imei number

The network operator may or may not bother to "blacklist" (block) IMEI numbers. If their policy is not to do it, I'm afraid that there is nothing that anyone here can do to change their mind.

 

Note also that blocking it on one network does not necessarily mean that another network (even in the same country) will do so (they might not be sharing any such lists).

Re: blocking of mobile using imei number

Think, they do not want to help the customers in India.. If you refer this on the Vodafone Australia site.. it says "This is part of an industry-wide initiative..."..

The people you should contact are your local Police and your network. They are the only ones who can do anything.

As previously said, the people you have to contact are your network and the police. There is nothing Nokia can do for you.
