    Help! Curve stolen....

    Advertisement



    Ok here is my situation, I was at work and someone stole my curve from the back area where i had my phone...
    what i want to know is it possible to track the location of the phone to have it recovered by using the gps or gsm of the phone? im not looking forward to spending another $350 for another phone...

    any help would be appreciated.

    Unfortunately it isn't possible to use the GPS to track it. You will need to call your carrier right away and report it as stolen so they can lock your IMEI and not allow it to be used by anyone as well as avoid any charges incurred by anyone who took it from this point on.
    Really sorry to hear this
    Hope whoever took it from your job is honest enough to come clean, at least you know it was someone at work.

    already took care of the report to the store, they killed the SIM and assigned a new SIM card to me. it wasnt someone who works with me, it was a customer... i found a few sites that seem to track it, ill see how it goes and if it works ill pass it on.. thnx tho.

    Your profile says you have a 8320 curve...if that's true, you dont have a gps chip. And I'd be wary of any "locator services" that advertise that they can track your phone by a triangulation method like on google maps, there's no way to get an accurate enough reading to find it. Sorry, but I think you're outta luck.

    yea, they said they can only sell me a replacement phone at a cheaper price...

    i do have my old pearl phone white a white screen i could probably still get replaced and just use that?

    man this blows...


    as for the sites... they don't provide enough information to be useful so im out of luck.

    I think if the IMEI is killed, then the phone is just completely useless. Unless you take it apart and sell it's parts on the street.

    there really isn't a way to kill an imei so it wont work. just changing the sim card would disable the services, but if they hae your carrier or sells it to someone who has your carrier then they device can be used again
