Nowadays, mobile devices are with us virtually non-stop. For this reason often are exposed to loss or theft. Given the nature and the quantity of data stored in them losing your smartphone or tablet can be for the owner of an irreparable loss. There are, of course, the method of securing valuable for us documents or photos, such as backing up or storing data in the cloud.
It is always some consolation, however, these methods do not allow for the recovery of their property or their guard against shoppers buying stolen equipment.
What do you do when you lose your phone?
You should think about this situation before it happens. On the market there are many anti-theft application that can help us regain smartphone.
Installing one of the popular antivirus gives obvious benefits therefore it is worth doing. Most popular of them, such as: Avast Mobile, Kaspersky Mobile Security, AVG Anti-Virus, Norton Mobile Security or F-Secure – Anti-Theft versions are paid and free (with a limited set of functions). Applications are available for all popular mobile platforms.
Most of them, in addition to anti-virus protection has additional features that allow you to remote data deletion, blocking access to unauthorized persons, send information about someone tried to use a foreign SIM card, or to locate device on a map. Some of them also allow you to take pictures that can help you to find your smartphone.
Apple has prepared one of the more interesting and more complex solutions for its customers. The service Find My iPhone helps find and protect your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac in case of loss or theft.
The equivalent of Find My iPhone for users of smartphones running Android is released by Google application Android Device Manager. As with the previously discussed it helps in finding the lost equipment and helps to secure them together with the data recorded therein. The application allows you to:
- Finding Android devices associated with your Google Account
- Reset the PIN screen lock your device

After the last update to Android Device Manager is also available as a guest login, so that each user can temporarily log on to any device with an installed app to find your smartphone.
In case your mobile phone is stolen and you hope to get it back , here are few facts:
What happens when you complain ?
In a situation where not previously installed this type of software, the phone is not responding and all ideas for his recovery failed you should report the theft. We can do this at the nearest police station. Next you should block the IMEI of the device. In order to do (with a certificate issued by the police) contact our operator. After such notification IMEI is placed on the Black List (Phone Black List). Since that time the phone will be useless for the new “owner”. The devices from the Black List will not log on to any network operator of country in which it has been blocked. Such notification may also contribute to the recovery of lost property.
A complain will be registered but will not be taken under FIR , in fact it will be recorded as a GD(General Diary )
Difference between a GD and a FIR
A First Information Report (FIR) is a written document prepared by police organizations in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Japan when they receive information about the commission of a cognizable offence. It is generally a complaint lodged with the police by the victim of a cognizable offense or by someone on his on her behalf, but anyone can make such a report either orally or in writing to the police.
An FIR is an important document because it sets the process of criminal justice in motion. It is only after the FIR is registered in the police station that the police take up investigation of the case. Anyone who knows about the commission of a cognizable offence, including police officers, can file an FIR.
General Diary is an important document in Indian Police station, which is used to record every major incident (e.g. theft, murder, traffic accidents) happening within the jurisdiction of the police station on a daily basis. The General Diary is likely to be maintained by a veteran Head Constable (equivalent to a Sergeant) known as G.D Charge Head Constable.
What happens if a phone is lost in India ?
You will be convinced or forced to write a complain in general diary and not FIR . The word mobile phone “is lost” will be used and never “is stolen” is used.
A FIR in India is like a bug to Police Department and they have to solve it so they generally avoid writing it.They in-fact avoid writing FIR for major criminal cases like even murder. An example is famous Sunanda Pushkar case where police is yet to file an FIR after such a long time.
You would be told that your sim is put in surveillance list and you will get a call once it is traced but that would never happen.
How adding an IMEI in surveillance helps in tracing it ?
Whenever another sim is inserted in the handset , a notification is observed and it location can be tracked .Once you get the cell phone , you can get it from the court after a general procedure/protocol.
Technically , thieves are better now and they are even competent enough ti change the imei number as well after flashing the device.
Once the imei changes , you can’t trace the mobile phone.
So you can just prey and hope @@@
