In this modern era where the use of technology is at the steepest rise, one can never bear to spend a day without any one of the gadgets in their prized possession. Laptops, I-Pads, I-pods etc. are all part of the long list of technology that has made the life of man more luxurious and easier. I haven’t missed out the mobile phone by mistake, no one can even think of ever leaving the mobile phone out of any list. Even though our parents may think it as a device that can be a downfall but for the young ones it’s much more than paradise![irp]
Some mobile provider companies, however, bring to you the easy way out and offer you to help protect your mobile phone data from meeting the eye of others. Many companies in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia offer the Mobile Block Service just by providing some valid information of your ownership to the respected handset and you’ll be good to go. There are some mobile applications for the smartphones you may have that automatically help you track your lost phone. You just have to visit your SIM card provider i.e. STC, Mobily or Zain with the following information to block your lost/stolen phone in Saudi Arabia.
IMEI Number: To avail this number you can remove the battery of your handset to uncover this number. Apart from that you can dial *#06# on your dial pad and the number will appear on the screen. The other place where you can obtain this number if you’ve already lost the cell phone is on the warranty or purchase invoice of your device.
Proof of Ownership: You must provide the proof of ownership of the handset you have lost. Simply show them your warranty card, purchase invoice or box.
Valid Sim: One must also have an active and valid SIM number on the device at least once in the past month.
Fill in Declaration Form: Fill in the above form and submit it to the counter. Your mobile phone will then be blocked as soon as possible. This will relieve you of the fact that your personal information or your mobile phone will not be misused by anyone who now has access to your phone or has your phone under his possession. Keep your information safe and consecutively keep your privacy alive.
