Re: How do i track my stolen phone using the IMEI number?

You cannot, sorry.

The police or law enforcement might be able to do so, if they are willing.

 

But there's no way for you to, using the IMEI.

 

If you have previously installed an application like BlackBerry Protect or SmrtGuard, you could track it via the internet as long as the SIM card were still in it and the battery was good.

How do i track it via the internet? I had Protect installed. The battery was good but obviously the sim card was removed after it was stolen.

Jrj, Jo one hear can speak for what your police or local law enforcement may or may not be willing to do. You will need to ask the those questions yourself, directly. Good luck.
