Losing a mobile phone is not a rare thing for anyone in this world. You must have heard that your friend or anyone else forget your phone in a hotel, car, garden, park. and when he or she is going to pick up a phone, there is no mobile phone there. Now what to do if your mobile phone is stolen.
In many countries such as the United Kingdom, there is a database of mobile phones, which can prevent the use of lost or stolen mobile phones in any mobile network, so these stolen phones have no value to anyone. This system works exactly like a stolen credit card, every time you lose your credit card, you simply make a phone call to your bank required to deactivate your credit card. Similar is the case with mobile phones: call your service provider and give them a specific number to deactivate your stolen mobile phone. This system applies to prepaid and postpaid packages.
Every mobile device in this world has a unique code called International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI Number). This is a unique serial number of each mobile phone. If you provide this serial number to your network operator, they will deactivate your stolen mobile phone. No one can use their mobile phone, even if the person who has stolen it, inserts a new sim into the mobile. This mobile will be useless for all networks or service providers. All mobile network operators will deactivate or disable the phone with reference to this unique IMEI number of the mobile phone.
Now the question is how to get this
IMEI number. This number can usually be found under the battery of the mobile phone. You can also get this number from the phone software, by entering the following useful code. Simply write the following code on your mobile phone. * # 0 6 #
A 15-digit code will appear on the screen after pressing the send button, or on some phones, it appears automatically by simply typing * # 0 6 #. Then, every time you buy a mobile phone, get this code from the battery or simply write the previous code on your phone and get an IMEI number.
After this, record this 15-digit IMEI number and your phone number on your laptop, place this book in a safe and ready place. Now suppose that if you lost your phone, call your service provider and give them your phone number and this particular password, that is, the IMEI number. They will deactivate your stolen mobile phone. He probably won't get his phone back, but at least he knows that whoever stole it can't use it / sell it either. If everyone does this, it would make no sense to steal mobile phones
Remember that your mobile phone is very valuable to you. You may have very important data stored in it. So take care of your mobile phones. Do not use your mobile phone in busy areas or where you may feel insecure. The government is trying to encourage mobile phone companies to offer more options to improve the security of mobile phones.
So remember this simple code * # 0 6 #. Tell all your friends and colleagues to obtain the IMEI number with the help of this code. If all of us simply follow this advice to make the mobile safe, believe me, nobody will try to steal your mobile phone.
