Cell Phone Security !

Here is something worth knowing if you have a mobilephone ....

Have you ever wondered why phone companies don't seem interested in trying to prevent the theft of mobile phones? If you have ever lost, or had one stolen, and if you are on a plan, you stillhave to pay the plan approximately up to 24 months, and you have to buy another handset and enter into another contract. This is more revenue for thephone company.
There is a simple way of making lost or stolen mobilesuseless to thieves and the phone companies know aboutit, but keep it quiet.
To check your mobile phone's serial number, key in the following on your phone:
star-hash-zero-six-hash ( * # 0 6 # )
and a fifteen digit code will appear on the screen. This is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it safe. Should your mobile phone get stolen, you can phone your service providerand give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset, so evenif the thief changes the sim card, your phone will be totally useless.
You probably won't get your phone back, but at lease youknow that whoever stole it can't use / sell it either.
If everybody did this, there would be no point in stealing mobile phones.
