Unlike the Electronic Serial Number or MEID of CDMA and other wireless networks, the IMEI is only used to identify the device, and has no permanent or semi-permanent relation to the subscriber. Instead, the subscriber is identified by transmission of an IMSI number, which is stored on a SIM card which can (in theory) be transferred to any handset. However, many network and security features are enabled by knowing the current device being used by a subscriber.

If a mobile phone is stolen, the owner can call his or her network provider and instruct them to "ban" the phone using its IMEI number. This renders the phone useless, regardless of whether the phone's SIM is changed.

I have forgotten my 2go password


Hi,

- To unlock (if forgot or lost lock code) you can unlock it using a master code. - To get the master code i need the IMEI code of your mobile phone. - With the help of
this IMEI code we can get the master code of your mobile and unlock the mobile and reset it with a new password.
- The IMEI number can usually be found on the sticker underneath the battery or by
typing *#06# into the phone keypad.

Hope this helps, please rate and leave a comment if the solution was helpful, thanks!

My phone was stolen yesterday. i want to blocked it now.its SAMSUNG CHAMP COLOR: DEEP BLACK, SAMSUNG GT-C3303K, SERIAL NUMBER: 8806071000039, IMEI NUMBER: 353373040799797


1 call your carrier (give this info to them)........to track, block it or shut it down.... this will also help you with the billing (you will not get bill from the time you lost it).......you can also change the message, letting close ones know you are okay you just do not have the cell anymore...

2 get a police report that it was stolen (your carrier is nice, but they can get down right nasty too)

My nokia mobile 6300 is lost.IMEI:351973031743449


Hi! If your phone is lost, kindly report it to the local police or call your phone service provider and tell them to block your number so that the person who had your phone won't be able to have an access to important things on your phone. I'm sorry that you've lost your phone. Thank you for using fixya! Hope I had helped you with your problem.

Hello, my phone got stolen 2 weeks ago. It was a sony ericcson w350i. The IMEI number: 35586502-317908-5 please help me trace it


I agree with bunnydawg here fully. I don't foresee you ever getting your phone back. But you can at the least stop the thief from making toll calls and burning though your minute plan. You probably have a chance at arguing with your carrier about the minutes used since the phone was stolen. Other than that, you're pretty much out of luck :(

Imei number blocked


Hi,
There Is a way To Unlock Your IMEI Code.
You have To Pay for This service, as It Is A new Security Feature On Mobile Phones And Other Devices.
The IMEI Code, Is A security Feature to attempt to stop Lost And Stolen Mobile Phones. To Enable the Unlocking Of Any IMEI Phone. You Pay To Have The Phone Hooked Up to A Telephone Line Service ( mobile Phone Shops Do This ) Costs £15-£20 Usually. The phone Has To Be Authorised, to be unlocked By 1:) your Service/Network Provider. 2:0 Security Checked To Ensure The Phone Is Not reported As Stolen Or Lost. It Can Be Done, But If It,s Nicked Forget It.
If it,s Your Own, And You,ve locked it in error.
Take it To A good Mobile Shop, And get It Unlocked.
This Also de-Brands the Phone ( gets rid of some Logos on Screen )
