How to Disable a STOLEN Mobile Phone?

4 Jan

 

Mobile Phones can be disable using the Phone’s serial key by the service providers so you need to know your phone’s serial key so that if your phone got STOLEN you can pass this code to your provider and ask them to disable it.

To find out  your Mobile Phone’s Serial number, dial  on your phone:
*#06#
A 15 digit code will appear on the screen.

This Number is unique to your Handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. Should your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code.They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.

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 mobile phones.
