    Hello everyone, I've just joined.

    I recently had my BB Torch stolen. Is there anywhere (website etc) in the UK where I can register it as stolen.
    I have already reported it as stolen to the police and to Vodafone.

    I have the IMEI and PIN numbers

    What about mentioning it on places such as facebook and twitter.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks
    John

    not sure how it works in the UK, but i always assumed once it was reported to your carrier, it was entered into a database and blacklisted across all UK carriers. a quick google search and i found this...

    IMEI - About Mobile Phone IMEI Numbers - International Mobile Equipment Identity - imei.org.uk

    ^ totally correct, inform your network provider and request an IMEI bar. if its contract then they should have your IMEI on system, if not then you may need to provide proof of purchase

    Should have used BB Protect. You could have used the webapp to locate your phone then......

    Thanks for the replies.

    "inform your network provider"
    Have done this.

    Should have used BB Protect
    Have got a new phone, and have installed BB protect.

    Was just wondering if posting the IMEI and PIN numbers on Facebook etc, would make it more difficult ( if at all ) for the thieving little gits.
