Using IMEI Number

What is IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identification) Number ?

How IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identification) works?

Once you switch on your mobile, the SIM card will try for network and register your IMEI number to network service providers server. It will be permanently stored in server database. If you lost or stolen your phone, you can ask your service providers to block your IMEI number in that network so that you can avoid misuse of your mobile.

How to Use IMEI number to Block Mobile Network ?

To block IMEI number in mobile network, First you need to register a police case about this. The network providers need FIR copy of the same. After getting FIR copy information, the network providers will block the IMEI number from network. The network providers are using shared service to block IMEI number. If you blocked IMEI number in one network, it will be blocked all other mobile networks. 

Eg: If you blocked IMEI number in vodafone, automatically it will be blocked in Airtel,reliance,Idea and all other mobile networks. Please note that; only do this after checking with police officers because police is using same IMEI number to find  thief. Once it blocked they can’t track the stolen mobile IMEI. This blocking is basically for avoid spreading of secret content or personal data. Otherwise, if not blocked; IMEI number helps to tracks the handset and the police should be able to retrieve it.
