Disabling a Stolen Mobile Phone

Do you know how to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone:

*#06# (Without any spaces)

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset which is your cell phone identification number. Write it down and keep it in a safe place.

Should your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so that even if the thief changes the SIM card your phone will be totally useless.

You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones. Please share this useful link with others...
