One of our company mobiles has been lost/stolen yesterday. We have blocked the number but would really like the phone back. I see in the threads that people have said Vodafone have blocked and even located mobiles in the past. Yet when I talked to them yesterday they couldnt have been less interested, saying they do it for fraud reasons only. Hell I would be happy to pay a fee to get a phone back if thats what it takes.

You're able to have your device's IMEI blacklisted, you can find the blacklist request form here: What do I do if my phone gets lost or stolen?

You'll need to have a copy of a police report saying you've reported the phone stolen and proof of IMEI (purchase receipt or packaging which has the IMEI on it) to prove you purchased the device.

don't forget you will need the file reference number on the CAF form otherwise Vodafone won't block it.
Most times the police will call you at a later date with it once it has been processed.

It doesn't take 2 weeks for New Zealand blocks.
It takes 2 weeks for it to be circulated internationally




Hmmmm

Yep it took overnight, I know this cos the phone number on the form was used rather than the IEMI number also on the form and the working contact number, rather than the lost phone number, now shows inactive SIM :) We are sorting it. Form might need clarification.

All fixed within 7 hours of reporting they had blacklisted the wrong IEMI.

They told me it took 2 weeks to process.

I don't think it will circulate internationally either.Just vodafone nz only

Considering the form is entitled "International IMEI Block" I am sure that it is international.




Hmmmm
