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!!

Call your service provider. THey will have this information. That phone can also use a sim card. So if someone else put a sim card into the phone, they can use it with another service provider,

SOURCE: Is it possible to track a stolen GPS with the serial number?

Garmin has a large hard drive with all the points of interest inside the device.
All the device does is read the GPS coordinates that are broadcasted by the GPS satellites and processes data based on what it receives. It doesn't need to send any information to a central server.
If GPS was able to communicate two ways, there wouldn't be a need to purchase map upgrades for new roads, points of interest, etc...
I just got my Garmin stolen within the past 23 hours, and as much as I wish there was a way, there isn't...

To day morning some body stolen my n8 mobile in that mobile i have important contacts and sms is it possible to get? and is it possible to change the IMEI number by the thiefs


The thieves cannot change the IMEI number, however you can block the phone. Call up your service provider, and report that your phone has been stolen, also tell them your IMEI number (this is written on the packaging of the phone, i.e. the box that came with it on a sticker). Also register a case with the police, they should be able to track whenever someone uses your phone via the IMEI number, and possibly help you to retrieve it.

Do you know your mobile’s IMEI number? Just press * # 0 6 # in your mobile hand set, IMEI number will be displayed in your mobile hand set.
Keep the IMEI number safely at other place. This IMEI number is unique number for each mobile hand set. In case your mobile hand set will get stolen, you can track or unlock your mobile hand set through IMEI number.

If your mobile hand set got stolen, you need to do following things.
1. Submit FIR for your mobile loss, give details of hand set model, color, IMEI number etc.
2. Ask your service provider to track the mobile phone, your mobile phone will be tracked only if the thief are using your mobile hand set with any sim card. If the thief is keeping your mobile switched off, your service provider can not track the mobile hand set location. You should not expect muck cooperation from service provider or police to locate your phone.
3. If you are unable to find your mobile number, insure that at least your mobile handset is locked. The thief can not use (misuse) your mobile with any sim card. You should ask mobile service provider to lock your mobile through IMEI number.

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.

Loss of cell phone


It is possible to track stolen phones by the SIM and also by the IMEI number but wether or not your carrier will do so is another story.

Best advice is to cancel the SIM ASAP to avoid charges

As far as I know IMEI numbers are like registration numbers, they dont actually trace. I know with modems etc that have IMEI numbers they cant be traced. At telstra IMEI numbers were only like a registration number, my suggestion is to cancel the phone. only a suggestion though....
