Mobile Serial Number? (0 Comments) (link)
 Thursday, 25-January-2001  20:37:29 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Liam sent this in. It seems to work as described on my phone, but I've no real way to verify it. Might be worth a try, tho..

Just in case you lose your mobile or it gets flogged. Did u know this? a little 'get your own back' if you have your mobile stolen. May be of interest to those Mobile Users among you.

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone:

* # 0 6 #

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe.

Should your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset 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 did this, there would be no point in stealing mobile phones.


Hmm..
