chrisbaby: Apparently not I apologise if I have offended 2 dredges
newbellies: Quick update.
Yes, I can confirm 2D now lets you call up to get the phone blocked from their network, but only if you are a customer. Unlike my previous attempts, I was successful today in doing so over the phone.
Vodafone also lets you call up to get the phone blocked, but you may require some extra pleading to convince them to do it if you are not a customer. They initially said they'd block it no problem, and confirmed it again a couple days later that it was still blocked. Then a week later, they said they had no record of the block! But apparently the block had been in place the entire time.
Of interest. If you have a EID block on Vodafone, but not on 2D, 2D stolen phones can roam on Vodafone networks without any problems.
Telecom lets you call up to get the phone blocked from their network, but only if you are a customer. I tried on a couple occasions to convince them to block a phone that didn't have Telecom SIM without any luck.
Until Telecom and 2D allow blocks from other carriers, it's pointless though. Thieves just have to change to one of the other carriers. In the meantime, you should be very suspicious of 'Only works on 2D' or 'Only works on Telecom' phones on trade me.
