    there are some softwares which can be used to track it. But the same has to be installed in your nokia. If not, no way.
    If you have your IMEI, then lodge a complaint. Call Airtel and block your SIM.

    You can do what my friend did--

    Register FIR in police station. FIR should clearly indicate your phone's IMEI no. and bill.

    Give the copy of FIR to major service providers like Idea, Airtel, BSNL, Reliance etc. and ask them to provide phone no. of the person using the stolen phone.(They can tell who's using by IMEI no.)

    Once you got the phone no. of sim which is currently in your stolen phone, then you know what you have to do further.

    Good Luck :smile:

    My room-mate did not get his mobiel back.


    AND, most important, while lodging an FIR always insist it being a "THEFT", most of the chance is that police would pressurize you for lodging a "MISSING" report.
    In that case, they may not even look for ur case.

    Yes my friend got his mobile back worth rs. 12000 after two months.

    Only difficult bit is registering an FIR if you don't have any source in police.

    My friend got no. from service provider and contacted the culprit, threatened him and settles the matter out of court.

    If you do not want these procedure don't do it but do register FIR or missing report cause your mobile may be used by terrorist or kidnappers.

    Go to nearest airtel dealer.

    Take necessary documents (when you applied for sim) and FIR.

    Ask them to provide you another sim with same phone no. and ask them to block the stolen sim. They will charge Rs.75

    Also ask them to keep track of your IMEI no.

    And don't forgot to tell other service providers also to track your IMEI no.

    Good luck

    AFAIK, Haravala means lost or missing. Chori would be theft!

    Haravla means lost, not theft. Even so, doubt anything can be done now. Keep Airtel CC informed of IMEI no. and tell them to DC your sim card.

    AFAIK, the IMEI no. tracking is theoretically possible, but rarely done.

    Good luck though.
