Call your mobile phone number and try to negotiate a deal with the thief. Or, call your service provider and have them shut that ESN or SIM Card off!
As for detecting it, your Provider will be able to tell you geographically where the phone is being or has been used since it was stolen, if that helps.
Good Luck.

My samsung core 2 was stolen few days ago, so,how i can find my mobile by tracing imei no?


Presume your only resource is to notify your Cell Phome service so your phone should blacklisted.
Bad news is that serious phone hackers can by-pass this blacklisting or even sell it to international gangs which "re-export" stolen and hacked devices
So your only hope is that it was stolen by some amateur thief.

Tip

DO THIS IF YOUR MOBILE PHONE IS STOLLEN


Now what to do if your mobile phone is stolen.
You call your service provider and give them a specific number to deactivate your stolen mobile phone. This system applies to both prepay and postpaid packages.

Every mobile in this world has a unique code called as International mobile equipment identity 'IMEI Number'. This is a unique serial number of every mobile phone. If you provide this serial number to your network operator, they will deactivate your stolen mobile phone. No one can use your mobile phone even if the person who has stolen your mobile, insert new Sim in the mobile. This mobile will be useless for all networks or service providers. All mobile network operators will deactivate or disable the phone by reference to this unique IMEI number of the mobile phone.

How to get this IMEI number?
This number can normally be found under the battery of mobile phone ,looking something like 567800987345687. You can also get this number from the phone software, by entering following useful code. Simply write down on your mobile phone the following code.* # 0 6 #

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen after pressing send button, or in some phones it comes automatically just by writing * # 0 6 #. So whenever you buy a mobile phone, get this code from the battery or simply write above code on your phone and get IMEI number.

After this, record this 15 digit IMEI number and your phone number on your personal note book, place this book at a safe place and that's it. Now suppose if you lost your phone, make a call to your service provider and give them your phone number and this particular key,i.e IMEI number. They will deactivate your stolen mobile phone.
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 do this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones

NOTE
Don't use your mobile in crowded areas or where you might feel unsafe.
So remember this simple code * # 0 6 #.

Will i be able to track my mobile phone even it is off beacause i dont know if it has been stolen or just missing in the house


Hello there,

No you will not be able to track the phone once it is switched off. It is only when it is on the satellite will be able to locate the phones location.

First check within the house thoroughly before you try to track it, as long as it is switched on, it will be able to be detected because if it is stolen, it will be for the purpose of using it.

Thank you for using fixya

My mobile 2600 classic is stolen so how can i get my mobile


I think it is very hard nowadays to recover stolen or lost phones, but one thing you can do is block your phone so that the person who stole it cannot use the phone. All you have to do is call the phone provider. They will get some basic info and the IMEI number of your lost mobile set. They will register IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of your cell phone and will request all the mobile operators to block this IMEI on their networks.

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 his/her network 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.

Stolen mobile to be blocked


Your only option here is to call your service provider and have them place a lost/stolen feature on it so it cannot be used by whomever took it. Tracing the phone is not possible. Unless you get the phone back your messages and any other information stored on the phone is lost. I suggest calling you provider immediatley as any charges before you report it stolen will be your responsibility (Unless you live in California).

My mobile is stolen


You Can Call It And See If Someone Picks Up And Hope They Wanna Give It Back. They Wont Track It Sorry. Or Hope You Have The Insurance Cause If You Do They Will Replace It If Its Lost Or Stolen.
