Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

Does Tracfone maintain a log of calls made? I could track my stolen phone from that.

Had a young girl fake a car problem and ask to use my home phone. She said her dad or whoever she called wouldn't pick up the phone, probably because the called ID showed a strange number. So, she asked if I had a cell phone. That's when I let her try that. I never left her alone in the kitchen, but she said she had to go back to her car and get something. I didn't notice, but she took my cell phone with her(stolen of course).

Call; Customer Care Center at 1-800-867-7183, and report it stolen.
Does your land line phone show the number she dialed? Hope this helps, best regards to you.

Testimonial: "I tend to believe she was using stall tactics, by not completely dialing any phone number. She was buying time until she got a different response from me, later on she said: "I think I know what's wrong with my car...it's out of gas. Could you help me by giving me $5, which I refused. I just called the Tracfone # and removed my account."

    I never did get a chance to speak with a rep., I just responded to the auto transmission for removing my account. The automation said it would be removed within 7-10 days. That's not very helpful either, for she gets to use it all the time.

    So sorry that happened to you, and that you couldn't talk with anyone! Did you file a police report? And would you be able to describe her vehicle, or wasn't it close by?

    Yes, I filed a report with a Sheriff deputy, who came to my house later in the day. He took my description of her and all the tactics she used. I guess I didn't get suspicious enough about her until after she'd lifted the cell phone. She had tears in her eyes, when she asked me for money. I, now, believe the couple of trips she took back to her car, were to consult with her accomplice. I never saw the car, because she didn't want me to be able to. She said it was a red Mitsubishi, but not close enough to view. She planned it that way, I believe. The deputy did tell me that there had been incidents like this around the area.

    A signed, sworn statement, attesting under penalty of perjury that you are the owner/customer for the subject telephone number and that you request copies of your call detail records. The statement must include your name, full street address, telephone number for which you seek call detail records and Serial Number (ESN or IMEI) of the phone. A clear, legible copy of the back of the phone showing the Serial Number. This documentation must be sent via mail or fax to: TracFone Wireless, Inc. Subpoena Compliance Attn: Executive Resolution Dept. P.O. Box 160340 Hialeah, FL 33016 Fax number: 1-866-809-7134 Upon receipt of your request, we will call you to confirm that you have requested your records and that you are the account holder in possession of the subject phone. It is hard to copy & paste some info, but hope this helps!

Car stolen last night. any way for the car to be tracked???


I read an article about how to find a stolen car there: https://reolink.com/what-to-do-when-car-is-stolen/
Besides filing a report to police, using GPS tracking system to track down your stolen vehicle, there are 5 ways you can have a try:

Way 1. Use Security Camera Systems to Find Your Stolen Car

With the increasing of security awareness, more and more people install security camera systems to prevent home break-ins. Hope you are one of them, because security camera systems are one of the best ways to find your stolen car and vehicle.

One of the most welcomed features of security camera systems is 24/7 continuous recording. If you park your car near your home, your security camera systems will record everything happening to your car. Check all of your home security cameras, especially the one in your garage. Nothing can escape security camera systems' "detective eyes". With the car thief's clear image, and his general escape route, the likelihood of finding your stolen car will significantly increase.

Moreover, you can ask for permission to check your community's security camera systems. If your car is stolen in your community, security camera systems will record the trace of your stolen car. A stolen Chevrolet Silverado car owner got his car back by checking a primary school's security camera systems. All in all, don't forget this effective way when your car is stolen.

Way 2. Call Every Cab Company When Your Car Is Stolen

Whatever the situation is, calling all the cab companies in the area where your car is stolen is definitely a good option to find your stolen car. Taxi drivers seriously outnumber police, thus increasing chances of finding your car. Besides, you should give enough reward, such as $100, to the taxi driver who finds your stolen car. Reward is an incentive to encourage more people to join your stolen vehicle search team, which increases the possibility of recovering your stolen car.

Way 3. Check the City's Transportation Website for Parking Violation

When your car was stolen, the car thief would park your car somewhere and then abandoned it. The car was ticketed and put into the parking violation database, which is available online apparently. You can check if your stolen vehicle is in this database and then go to the area where the violation takes place. After that, contact the police immediately, they will search your car and then release it to you if they find it.

Way 4. Check for Your Stolen Car's Parts Being Sold Online When Your Car Is Stolen

If your car has been parted out, finding who is selling those parts could lead you to recover your wheeled baby. You can use automated checking system, such as Craigslist checker, to track down your stolen vehicle. If you can identify parts from your stolen car, make sure that you contact the police before arranging any meeting with the seller. Car thieves are dangerous guys. Accompanied by the police, you can get your stolen car back more safely and smoothly.

Way 5. Find Your Car with VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)

A vehicle identification number (VIN) is a unique code used by vehicle industry to identify individual motor vehicles, towed vehicles, motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, etc. A car can be tracked through a vehicle identification number.
VIN not only helps you check if your car is stolen, but also plays an important role on recovering your stolen car. First, go toAutoCheck, and purchase vehicle history report. The cost of the report will be between $30 and $40.
Enter your vehicle identification number and credit card details on the vehicle history report search screen, and you will see a chronological history of the places where your car was registered, titled and serviced. The last known registration or service should be the most recent location of your stolen vehicle. Thus you can narrow down the search range when your car is stolen, and get your car back fast.

Is your phone an actual Tracfone Branded phone or is it Straight Talk or Net10 ? It has to be Tracfone for the Android Service. You can't use Straight Talk or Net10 branded phones. The *22890 is the standard programming number. Make sure that you have good reception when you are shutting off and restarting phone. It will need at least a couple bars of reception (the more the better) for it to program. Otherwise make a claim ticket online for a faulty phone. If they can not fix it over the phone, it should be covered by the Tracfone warranty and they should replace it. They have always replaced my phones with no problem at all. Just call them. I have had Tracfone for many years and have never had a problem getting assistance from them.

Tracfone customer service


Hi Liz
I believe the phone number is assigned to your Sim chip.
Your Mobile Network Service Provider can reassign your Phone # to the new Sim Card. Not sure what country your in.
Pity you didn't have an iPhone with "Find My Phone" activated.
You could have (or the police) tracked the signal to the thief and caught the culprit or you could wipe the data off the iPhone and lock it,...so that when next used it could not be unlocked without a password.
Cheers

Track the location of a lost cell using the IMEI number


1. Call up the "Customer Care" helpline of your airtime provider and ask them to deactivate the SIM.
2. Call up the police. Submit them the IMEI number of your phone (which you should have noted before the theft).


From what I understand, the IMEI number is broadcast to the network every time a call is made, along with the user's account information on the sim card.So let's say the person who stole the phone just takes out your sim and puts in their's, and keeps using the phone. Your Carrier should be able to track it by their account info.
A unique code encrypted in each mobile, known as the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number, is now being used to trace a mobile anywhere in the country. Even if the SIM card (network) is changed, it can be traced.
Whenever a phone logs onto a particular network to make or receive calls, its IMEI number is emitted and this gets registered. In case of stolen phones, the service provider can pass on the information to the police. and they can trace the user through the SIM card. It is possible to even track down gangs running cellphone-stealing rackets.

Register with a website like Track IMEI, Mobile Phones Tracker or Theft Record. You simply have to visit the website and submit your handset's IMEI number. If the company's dealers ever come across a IMEI-number.html#" target=_blank className="iAs" itxtdid="26528975">cell phone with your IMEI number, they will trace it and contact you.

Hint:
check out Theft Aware - this is a tool that can help you recover your lost or stolen mobile phone. It is completely invisible on your phone and the owner can remotely control his mobile phone and perform a variety of actions that remain invisible to thieves.

I just bought a tmobile phone off this girl,an i tried to put in the code an now it reads your sim has been security locked please contact customer care for a puk number code sim6 i dont have tmobile...


I would get my money back because only T-Mobile will be able to give the info that you need and my guess is that the phone WAS stolen by the girl you got it from. If it was not stolen, and the account was under the name of the girl you got it from you should have HER call. You will be able to find out if it was stolen right then and there. You can also just contact T-Mobile and ask them. Just tell them you bought from ebay and see what they say, no harm done. This happens all the time with cell phones.
