Hi the only way you can block the phone itself is if you still have the box the phone came in or if you registered the phone when you brought it.

you need the phones imei number and this is printed on the box of the phone and also on the back of the phone but as you dont have the phone you will need to look for the box.

if you no longer have the box then the only slight chance you have of getting it blocked is by calling your service provider and give them the phones phone number and if it was registered then they will have the imei number if it wasnt registered then the only way it can be locked is if the sim card is still in the phone, then your service provider can send a signal out to the phone and lock it that way.

you need to call your service provider as soon as you can and let them know whats happened and see if they can block it from their end, they will at least be able to block the sim card and prevent them from getting your numbers, if you do still have the box then get the imei number off the side of the box and give the police a call and they will then be able to block the phone from their end.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

good luck and let me know how you get on

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

How do i get my simple NOKIA 1208 cell phone accept my VIRGIN PRE PAID SIMS CARD. When i inserted it in it said invalid card but the web says this phone accepts virgin do i unlock it

Your cell phone may be locked to a particular cell phone provider and in this case it needs to be unlocked to use with a different cell phone service provider. To get the security code/restriction code to unlock the cell phone from the current cell phone provider so you can use the SIM card with a different phone provider, Please click on this link and follow my instructions :- If your phone provider does not help you then these WEB sites it provides security codes for a small price.

I inserted sim, then mobile shows insert sim card why

Please check the SIM card if it is correctly inserted or if you put in the SIM card the wrong way. But if you put in the SIM card correctly, you need to check your mobile phone if it is open to the network of the SIM card. If your mobile phone is unlock for all networks available in your country there is a problem on the SIM card. Please contact the network provider.
I hope I answered your question.
Thanks a lot!

You're a bit late in taking the action. However, you can contact your network provider now, explain your situation and ask him to block the IMEI number. The network provider might want you to file a police report to ensure that the theft was authentic; so do that. Once listed, regardless of what network is being used on the stolen device, it won't work and the network provider will be able to trace the stolen cell phone.
The process can vary from city to city, however it's best to report theft to police and contact your network provider.

How to block my lost phone?

If your mobile phone is lost or stolen you can inform your network provider with yours IMEI number who 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!

N73:call not allowed

If the owner of the phone lost it or had it stolen, they can have the phone blocked, using the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. If that’s the case the phone can only be unblocked by a repair shop.
The SIM card is blocked because the person who's phone it was, doesn't want to pay for calls made by someone else. So the SIM card is never going to work again.

This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!
