  • File a complaint against the missing scene in the nearest police station in your residential area. (You cannot do it online).
  • Copy of the FIR lodged and the IMEI number has to be submitted to your network service provider.
  • After authenticating your identity, your device will be blocked by sending it to register of “Blacklisted”.
  • Once this process is done, the phone stops working; even if the SIM card is been changed.

After the complaint is lodged, there are many processes that happen to track the lost mobile phone via IMEI number.
