I had my phone stolen from my house last monday.
I called the police and I have a case number.
I know I wont get my phone back, and its not insured, so its a total loss.
I want to make sure the person who stole it cant profit from it, so I want the IMEI numbers blocked.
So far, Optus wont help (they say its not registered with them). Iinet wont help as they are not the actual carriers. Other services appear to just be search services that wont actually block the phone, just make a list of numbers available from anyone to search.
How do I get the numbers blocked?
Numbers are IMEI1 866654035415881, IMEI2 866654035415899
Phone is a Xiaomi MI6 6/64. Its just under a year old.
Its got to be able to be done. I want that damn phone Bricked! (or at least not usable as a phone).
The sim was cancelled the next day. they turned off the phone as they left my property.
Help. How do i cancel or block the imei numbers when I dont have an account directly with Optus?
Thanks in advanced.
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
It's a relatively straight forward process for an Optus agent to block an IMEI however as you mentioned, the phone(s) need to be activated/registered with Optus.
How did you first get these phones? Through iiNet? It should be via the service provider you had the phones with. For example if a Dodo, Amaysim, Extetel, etc. customer has their phone lost/stolen, those providers assist with blocking the IMEI.
I'm with ya, I would want the same.
The answer is by finding someone at IInet who knows the stolen phone process.
It's even explained on their website. Assuming you have account access, refer them to that page or speak to the manager if you're still getting nowhere.
An IMEI block is normally for all networks within Australia.
