Most of us are more or less aware of what is an IMEI number
Each mobile phone has a different IMEI number and no two IMEI numbers match. This also helps the manufacturers keep a track of the handsets produced.
To know your handsets IMEI number, simply enter *#06# (applicable only to selective brands and models) on your mobile phone and it will show the IMEI number. The alternative to find out your IMEI number is it's usually sited beneath the battery or stored on the cell phone itself in the 'phone info or about phone' option.
You must be wondering why a great deal importance is given to this IMEI number?
Well as mentioned above it not only identifies your mobile phone but also helps you track/trace the device or block it.
With just this set of 15-digits, you can find out info about the manufacturer, handset model type, date, SIM provider and more. You can also verify if the gadget is genuine and not a forged or a stolen piece.
This very same IMEI number facilitates in tracking or blocking your mobile phone when it is lost/stolen. All you have to do is inform your service provider and request them to track/block the cell phone. Whenever the stolen cell phone is turned on, the IMEI number is verified for in the network's EIR (Equipment Identity Register) database. By using the GPS (Global Positioning System), the operator can track your mobile phone. And if requested by you, permanently deactivate the phone.
The operator disables the cell phone on all mobile networks. It's just becomes a worthless device and won't function even when a new SIM card is inserted. Basically this disables phone and it can not be used to make phone calls or send SMS etc.
Normally the service provider does offer these services just on request, but in case they don't you can file an FIR of your lost/stolen mobile. Provide this copy to the service provider and the phone will be traced without any delay.
Please check the IMEI number before buying any mobile phones. The Govt. has banned mobiles without IMEI numbers and issued very strict regulations in this matter.
So now in case you lost your mobile phone or its stolen, immediately contact your service provider and request them to track/block the device using the IMEI number.
