SOURCE: BLOCK STOLEN MOBILE USING IMEI NO.

Hi there.
Phone your service provider, tell them its been stolen, if its being used they will send a text to that phone which will disable it from being able to be used. As for tracking it has to have GPS installed in the original software.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

SOURCE: Help Tracking Lost Cell-Phone

Contact your service provider (ie.Orange, Vodafone etc), and tell them that you have lost you phone and you have the IMEI no. and you want to track it.

It can be tracked easily.

SOURCE: Track Lost Cell-Phone

You personally cannot track your phone by IMEI. That would allow people to stalk and track other people it's an invasion of privacy.

The only thing you can do, and should do is contact the service provider and report it stolen. First they should be able to lock the phone by broadcasting a signal over the network. This will prevent the theif from using the phone.

You will have to ask about the tracking part. I'm not quiet sure how or if they can do that for you. Something I will look into so that I know myself.

Post back if you need any further assistnace. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Hi,
4.Once stolen you just have to mail this 15 digit IMEI no. to cop@vsnl.net

Your Mobile will be traced within next 24 hrs via a complex system of GPRS and internet...

You will find where your hand set is being operated even in case your number is being changed. Hope Useful

SOURCE: my samsung Galaxy phone stolen

Hi, your phone IMEI is a number which is unique to every GSM mobile phone. It is usually found printed on or underneath the phone's battery and warranty card. IMEI of any set can also be found by dialing the sequence *#06# into the phone. The IMEI number is used by the GSM network to identify valid devices and therefore can be used to stop a stolen phone from accessing the network.
For example, if a mobile phone is stolen, the owner can call Authorities (service provider) and instruct them to "block" the phone using its IMEI number. This renders the phone useless, regardless of whether the phone's SIM is changed.

My Samsung galaxy 4 was stolen on mother's day and am outrage what can I do


Micele: 1) call your provider (such as Verizon or AT&T) and have it shut off because they could call the 900 numbers and get charges to your account.
2) ask them if there is a tracking device in the phone.

How do I track my stolen Samsung galaxy S4 with its imei number


you can go to this link: http://www.trackimei.com/ and put your IMEI number in there you might be able to find out

or If you were using and Android based phone, you would have enabled "Find my mobile" in settings>device>security, GPS must also be on
If it was an Apple, there is "Find my phone" after you login to iCloud

If you didn't register to and enable some sort of Anti-Theft service or have it insured, you are at a loss.

Even with an IMEI, Police can only track the phone if they were physically looking for it and checking the number on them. This is the only way the IMEI is used... physical checking

Contact your service provider to report your phone stolen, so you don't end up getting billed if the lost phone is being used by someone. Ask for required paperwork of your phone/contract and report it to the police, who will put out an APB for it

I lost my samsung , how can i get?


you can not track your phone unless you have something special set up with it, and since you are asking, no you can not find it or track it easily, you can report it stolen to police and your service provider, so the phone can no longer be used at all. it will be blacklisted as stolen.
