Disable Your Lost/Stolen Phone

Disable Your Lost/Stolen Phone
Write down and store your phone's IMEI as explained above.
If your phone ever get stolen or lost, you can call your service provider and give them your IMEI number. They will then be able to block your phone so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. 
If everybody done this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones. This is also in the fine print of most cell/mobile phone manuals. It was created for the very purpose of trying to prevent phones from being stolen.
However please note that not all service providers will comply, depending on your providers policy or country regulations.
