Hello, I just got my phone stolen, I have tried locking and wiping it via google but I think they hard reset it before it had a chance to lock, the phone was the china phone UMI Iron Pro, and I had 2 sims in it, A Warehouse one, and 2degress. On the 2degress website you can track who they have been txting and calling etc, and I have see that they have called someone number, and yes I don't care if its on there, they stole my phone, they called "022[removed]" twice for a couple of seconds, and they also called 201 (Voicemail), I'm think I should blacklist the IMEI number, but if they are calling numbers I may be able to get some info from this. The warehouse dosen't have a option to view logs unfortunaly and they have used at least $3 on there, I am thinking of calling the Warehouse and asking them if they can get logs. And yes, I have filed a police report and will take the numbers to them today. The person has been texting me via my phone numbers, and asking for $150, for it back.

Definitely take him upon the $150 for it back. Just let the police meet up with him for it.

If they are offering money for it back go and see the police right away. Sounds like there's a good chance to get your phone back and get the bad guy at the same time.

I just went to police, the phone is off, so we can't get in contact with the person. The police said they would keep trying. I will update if anything new happens.

Cancel the warehouse one and keep the 2deg running for a while for further info. The number called may be a prepay with no contact info to early to know.

I think the phones gone flat, and police said that they would only give him a day, should I lock IMEI number?

Prob little chance of getting it back to be honest, so yeah, Id get it locked. Why make their lives any easier if they get a charger and try using the phone ?

I'd just blacklist the phone and then move on.

I think stolen is not quite the right word then. Found and kept is more like it.

Finding, keeping, then extorting $150 to return something = stolen.
