Lost & Stolen
The AMTA recommends customers contact their mobile service provider immediately when their mobile device is lost or stolen. Upon request, their mobile service provider can block the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number which renders the mobile device incapable of connecting to any mobile network in Australia. IMEI blocking has proven to be a valuable tool in reducing mobile phone theft.
Contact your mobile service provider (ie. the company you pay for your mobile service calls).

WARNING: IMEI checks only provide details of those phones reported and blocked at the time of the inquiry therefore it is not conclusive. If the owner of the phone does not report it lost or stolen, the resulting IMEI check cannot identify it as a lost or stolen handset.
