How to Block your Stolen Mobile Phone

Standard

To block your mobile phone call at 021-5682222, 6583334 to CPLC (Citizen Police
Liaison Committee) or to 15, you can also call directly to PTA at the following
number 0800-25625. 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. You can also fax your complaint to CPLC at 021-5683336 or can
send an email to PTA at imei@pta.gov. pk or visit the site which is http://www.cplc.org. pk

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.

Kind regards,

  5. @ samuel & Hema

    I am in pakistan so I can only inform about procedure in pakistan. but as you people are in nigeria and India respectively, and if mobile operators / telecom governing authorites give this faciliy (as in pakistan PTA gives) only then i think you will be able to block your mobile. so its better to talk your service provider for further assistance. I am sorry but right now i cann’t help you more than this

    Regards,
