    Got burgled this morning - While in the bath, for crissake.. (Then, this is
    Southeast London..) and they took my T610 and little else. I immediately
    phoned up (T-Mobile) and had it blacklisted, barred etc. I had no insurance,
    so this is a major bummer.

    The thing I'd like to know, is just how effective IS the blacklisting? I
    read that they can be used abroad - which with a little organization isn't
    going to be hard for them to sell overseas - and the IMEI number changed
    quite easily. Now, I know I'm never going to see it again, but it'd be nice
    to think that the handset is now useless.. Is it? How good is the T610 at
    staying unusable?

    Thanks for any info

    Neil

    Maybe they saw it through the window and decided it would be easy to just
    get the phone?! You're lucky as I've known of burglaries where they have
    trashed everything they couldn't take.

    Don't know about the T610 but it's easy to change the IMEI of certain nokias
    such as 3210, 3310, 3330...

    It's true about the selling overseas thing. The UK networks just pulled
    together over it so hopefully someday it will be worldwide.

    May be worth spending a few minutes checking your house insurance if
    applicable, as many include items such as mobiles. Its often forgotten that
    just because you don't have additional insurance from an operator that it
    may be covered by a policy you already have.

    Just a thought.

    On a t610 it will be 100% effective, as long as the phone remains in the
    UK.

    I don't that the system of all UK networks blocking stolen phones is insular
    at all. I am fully aware that it would be easy to export these phones but
    does not make the idea pointless. The next step is clearly to persuade other
    governments of the benefits of the scheme and extend it.

    You could certainly think my idea of ineffectiveness is wrong, John,
    but the insularity still stands.

    Someone will probably just change the IMEI, making it work again!

    Sorry to make you realise that Neil!

    All i'm seeing at the auctions is a newly developed market for our Asian friends
    who no doubt will be simply exporting them for use outside the CEIR.

    I don't see how legitimate new phone dealers in Asia and Africa will soon be
    able
    to compete against imported "used" European CEIR region phones ?
