Hi,

There is an IMEI number that would help to track the phone. It is usually on the battery or on the box given to you at the time of purchase. Few of the dealers also note down the IMEI number on the receipt of purchase.

If you do not have that information, it is not possible for you to track it. ( of course,in legal or criminal cases cellphone company could track it - It is only limited to government or FBI ).

People do download software's that would make cellphone disable or even ring you on an alternate number ( most compatible with Nokia cellphones ).I have no idea if you might have downloaded one of those software's.

The only thing you could do is to file a lost complaint regarding the cellphone.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    Good question.

    Your cellphone could ONLY be tracked by FBI or investigating agencies or service provider or government authorized agencies.

    There are 2 ways to track :-

    1. Your cellphone number.As long as your cellphone is ON, it could be tracked. ( GSM or CDMA )

    2. IMEI number. ( There are few Chinese sets which do not have any IMEI numbers. These phones are mostly banned ).

    THERE IS NO WAY AN INDIVIDUAL WOULD TRACK YOU.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have purchased nokia c201 in feb 2011 now i lost my mobile i want to know imei number


If your mobile phone is lost or stolen you can inform your cell phone provider with your IMEI number. Your cell phone provider can then put the serial number on a shared database. This list stops this particular phone from registering on any network and will be useless for anyone even if the mobile phone's SIM card is changed.
Your best bet is to ring your cell phone and hope the person who answers your cell phone will return your phone to you. If your cell phone is GPS enabled then it is possible to track, but you need to contact your cell phone service provider. Otherwise I suggest you contact your cell phone provider ASAP.

My mob has lost and tell me how i block my mob...............LG ks360


If you want you can recover your mobile. You might be having the box in which the mobile came. It will have IMEI no written on it. You can give that no to your service provider. You contact your service provider and get your no disabled and also give them your lost mobiles IMEI no. They will come to know the address of the person when he puts his sim card in your phone. You can track the person down and recover your cell phone.

Can I track my stolen cell phone with its EMEI number and the new user


Make sure you contact your network provider who will be able to track/recover any stolen cell/mobile Plus be able to block it to prevent it being used while its being tracked.
Only network provider can do this and/or willing to do this, There are some private websites who offer the same service but only your network provider or phone manufacture will be able to block it and track it in real-time.

I lost my nokia mobile phone. I have that phone imei number. Please Can you give Assist to block that imei number.


IMEI(International Mobile Equipment Identification). Now if you have lost your mobile handset or your phone has been stolen, you can contact your network provider to block your IMEI number. They might ask you to get a Police FIR copy first, do as they say and finally ask them to block your IMEI number. Mobile network.
providers use a shared hosting service for blocking IMEI numbers, which means if you have asked network ‘Airtel’ to block your mobile handset, it automatically gets blocked by network ‘VodaFone’, ‘Reliance’, ‘Idea Cellular’ and so on.
Now when that thief will switch on your mobile handset, no service providers will allow it to build any connection with them. It does not matter if he changes the mobile SIM card, since SIM card requests for the service with IMEI number and a blocked IMEI number handset will be ignored and the mobile will become an useless toy.

If you know someone from any mobile network, you can also ask him to find out the mobile number that’s being used that IMEI number. In that way you will get the mobile number that thief is using on your handset icon_wink.gif Take help of mobile number tracker to track any mobile in India.
You can find more information about your mobile handset by entering your mobile IMEI no. Go to IMEI Number Analysis and know more about your handset model, manufacturing date and some internal informations for free.

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!!

Hello,

For tracking for mobile, you first need to activate your mobile while purchasing mobile from shop. then you may get this mobile. and for block mobile you have to do some legal formalities, and also would talk to customer care number. If you are interested in buying new phone than i would refer to you Mobile Phones shop.
