On Your Phone
Record your IMEI number - this is recorded behind the battery in your handset or can be brought up on screen by pressing *#06#. The number on the screen should match the number behind the battery.
Record make, model and network details and a description of the phone.
- Register the phone on the property database, www.immobilise.com (external link).
- If the phone is stolen, ring 08701 123 123 to get it blocked within the UK on all the mobile networks.
- Be careful with your use of Bluetooth - it can help offenders identify who has a phone and where it is. Only have it switched on when you really need to use the facility.
