Re: getting imei

1. Call your service provider immediately and block the SIM card if you want to discontinue any use of the device to keep any additional charges being made it.


2. Do you have a loss protection program installed on it, like SmrtGuard or RobLock? With those type applications, you can track the device by GPS. Otherwise, you cannot do so, with only a PIN or IMEI.
