Tips against Mobile Theft


1. Out of sight

Try to keep your phone hidden, especially when you're not using it.

 

2. PIN number security

Always make sure your PIN number is activated. This will prevent unauthorized calls being made on your phone if it is stolen

 

3. Phone Security Code

Remember to use your phone's security lock code. This is an extra PIN number which once activated, will prevent another SIM card working in your mobile. You can make the security code easier to remember by simply adding a '0' to the beginning or end of your existing PIN number.

To set up this option you will need to change the generic security code on your mobile.

Nokia - 12345

Ericsson - 0000

Motorola - 000000

Sony - 0000

Sagem - 0000

Samsung - 00000000

Siemens - No code, just enter your choice

 

4. Top-up sensibly

Avoid topping up a pay as you go phone in public. It may tell a thief there is credit on the account, making it even more attractive to steal.

 

5. Leave it and you may lose it

Don't leave your phone unattended in a car, or put it on a shop counter.

 

6. Be alert, be safe

Avoid using your phone when you're on the street after dark. Sometimes you may feel safer talking on the phone whilst walking but it can be safer to call someone at the beginning of your journey and again when you reach your destination.

 

7. Note down your IMEI number

Your 15 digit IMEI number is marked on a sticker beneath the battery or appears on the phone screen when you key in *#06#. Make a note of this number and keep it safe.

 

8. Call Police Help Line if your phone is stolen

If your phone is lost or stolen, immediately call your Service provider to block calls from your account so that no unauthorized calls can be made and also call 15 or CPLC.

 

9. Contact the police

Report the loss or theft of your phone to the police as soon as possible.

 

10. Be smart, backup

Losing your phone can be a hassle because it can also mean losing all your numbers, try to take frequent backups of your phone / SIM Card.
