Mobile Phones


Statistics published in January by the Home Office revealed that more that 17,000 under 16s had their mobile phones or MP3 players stolen in 2007 - an average of 50 a day.

The quarterly crime figures obtained under the Freedom of Information Act from 43 of the UK's 52 police forces show that in the three years to 2007, there were 52,348 reports of phones and MP3 players being stolen from children aged 15 or under.


 Things to remember...
  • Locate your IMEI number, your phone's unique identifying number, which can be found on the box the phone came in or behind the phone's battery. You can also obtain this by typing *#06#.
  • Make a note of your IMEI number and this can then be used to prohibit use of your phone if it is lost or stolen.
  • Register your mobile phone on the IMEI database at
  • Use the PIN code, if it has one, so that only you access your phone.
  • Property mark your phone with your postcode and house number to assist police in identifying stolen phones.
  • Save details in your phone of a family member of friend who can be contacted in an emergency. Add 'ICE' (In Case of Emergency) before their name so that the emergency services know immediately who to contact.
  • Immediately inform police if your phone is stolen and inform your network provider if it is stolen or lost.
  • Most mobile phones will allow you to call 999 even if you have no credit left or if the battery appears to be flat.

Things to avoid ...

  • Attracting attention to you phone when using it. Keep your mobile safe and out of sight!
  • Walking and talking (or texting). Always be aware of your surroundings and the people around you.
  • Using phones when near train, tube and bus stations. There are more robbers frequenting these areas.
  • Leaving your phone unattended. It only takes a split second for someone to pick a mobile up.
  • Walking alone in isolated and dark areas. Put your phone on silent or vibrate so your ring tone doesn't draw attraction to you.
  • Lending your phone to someone you don't know or don't trust. Many mobile phones are sought after items.
  • Giving your number to a stranger. Always inform your parents, a teacher or someone you trust if someone is pressuring you for this.
  • Using Bluetooth on your phone when you are not using it. Avoid unwanted access to your mobile phone by switching the facility off when it is not needed.
