TIPS, on how to protect your cellphone

_IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity and is the 15 digit number unique to your phone, it can be found by looking beneath the battery or by keying in *#06# on most phones.

_If you are in the UK, the Home Office and Police advise you to also visit ImMobilise. This is free to join service allowing you to register your equipment against your contact details. If recovered, the police are able to access this information and the effect of "If phone stolen IMEI number will be reported" is normally enough for it to be dropped off to the local police station.

_Mobile phones are valuable, both to you and potential thieves, so take care when using them in public. Avoid having them on display, or talking on them in busy areas where they can be easily snatched.

_If you own a Nokia Series 60 phone (ex E61, 6620, etc) or some others you may enable a remote lock command. This permits you to send a text(sms) message to your phone to lock the phone remotely. If your phone does not support this, products like Theft Aware help you to do that anyways.

_At least on some Sprint phones (and maybe other carriers), if the default lock code is not 1234, it could be the last 4 digits of your cell phone number. For example, if your cellphone number is (123) 456-7890, the default lock code could be 7890.

_If you have a MobileMe account and an iPhone, you can use the Find my iPhone feature (same for iPad, even though this article isn't about them)

_If by chance your phone is lost/stolen, the company may not be helpful in returning it or your number because they think you may be the thief, you have a chance of getting them to believe you were the owner by reciting a detailed history of the phone...telling them how many hours were usually on the phone, how many times the phone was replaced, how you paid for your service, etc. You must prove you are the real owner as you know its history.
