How do the operators block it

You tell them the IMEI number thingy and they will block the pgone with the corresponding number...

Its out of order so i advise no one does it...

Here in Manila, changing of celfone's IMEI is very rampant ! Want to see more irregularities and illegalities in life? Where else to go but to Manila. Older models of Nokia and SE fones IMEI #s can be changed just for US$1.00 - US$2.00, no kidding. They can now also change IMEI's of SE " C O L O R E D " fones as well, like that of the T68i, T610, P800 and the latest P900 just for only US$11.00 - I've asked a skilled technician in a mall. Colored Nokia fones cannot be tampered that easy as for now as the technician lamented, they are still looking for that special software to have the serial number replaced.

then you must either know the new IMEI number or the phone number used on that phone... else it can't be traced.

It's amazing what you can do if you program someone elses imei number into your phone. All there only work if your phone is a contract 1. You can order pizza's, indians, Tv's and dvd players. You can even send 10000 mms and sms messages a week for free. Try it this week and check your phone bill at the end of the month. :-D

Yeah, yeah Deanlambert!

But... If has somebody stolen your phone, what do you do first...?

If something like this happens to me, I would call my provider immediately, to find my phone...

So... if you'll be so kind to explain...
