Is It Possible To Track A Stolen Phone Number That Is Active And Going Through? by javaRookie: 4:45am On Apr 01, 2021
Hi,
My phone got stolen but the number is still going through, the thief even picked it up! Is there any way to track such a sim card?

I already involved the security agency and they billed me a whooping 15k, and up till no feedback. They just keep posting me around.

they are not posting u around.

Security agents are not allowed to track stolen fons until at least 2 months after it has been stolen or missing.

Also, 15k is very fair. usually it's at least 20k, at times 25k.

Then what is the use of involving them? What if the phone have being sold off in parts within that 2 months frame.
They didn't tell me about this part when i went there. So i will have to wait for two months before i can get the tiniest hopes that my phone will be found?
What nonsense.

The thing that keeps getting me infuriated is that the bastard who took the phone is busy using my simcard with more than 6gb sub i had in there, and even had the gots to pick up the call and start talking nonsense.

And you are saying I should forget it??

Report to your network in addition to what you did already that your phone was stolen with proof of sim ownership, they should be able to block it for you.

even if it has been sold off into one thousand parts, u can still track ur fon thru the panel.
That's what is tied to the imei.
The screen, Battery and all that do not matter.

When u track your fon to the panel, then u have caught the person.

The buyer of that part would either pay for all your claims or lead you to whoever sold it to him or her.

Yes, you can. Since you said the thief is still using your Sim and phone actively, then

Go to google and search for "Google Find my Device", then check the first website and login. Make sure you login with the Gmail account in your stolen phone. It will use your Gmail address to tell you the location of the thief, provided he hasn't formatted the phone.

It was useful when my friend's phone was stolen last year.

There are things you can do. You can lock the phone, make it ring out etc. Just go and try.

Be fast about it.

I hope it will go well.

But don't forget to update us in this thread.
