    Not sure if this has been posted in here before, it was in this
    mornings newspaper:

    Helpful phone tip.

    If you punch in STAR HASH ZERO SIX HASH ( that's *#06# ) into your
    mobile phone, up will come the phones serial number.

    Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. Should your phone get
    stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code.

    They will then be able to block your handset, so even if the thief
    changes the Sim card, the phone will be useless.

    The telcos dont need you to tell them that
    like that, they can see that in their records.

    Plenty of monkeys wouldn't have a clue. Many would be capable of finding out
    but wouldn't bother.

    Another way to find the serial number is to remove the battery and look on
    the label that you find.

    Try telling the telco that you have had your handset
    stolen and find them quite happy to blacklist it
    without you providing any serial number.

    Corse it does have to be a handset
    you have used on their system recently.
