O2 block phone

12
Found 29th Sep 2011
My friends lost his iphone on a cheesy night out ( Tuesday ) and he reported it lost/stolen so they blocked it and cancelled the sim card and sent him a replacement simcard ( which hes waiting for )

He is glad that he put a lockcode on the phone so no one can access his data easily but there are ways to bypass that. He hates the thought of some cheap skate using his phone so the question is do o2 block the phone straight away or does it take time?

I know that. I mean how long does it take to block the phone. He had it jailbroken so I think it could be accessed more easier now, The data that is.

what you on about " the data" the data is whats on the phone

the only thing reporting a phone stolen does is stop it being used as anything that would go on to your bill

phone calls , internet and such

Vodafone state it will take up to 24 hours for them to do it. I guess it depends on the network..

So it is! Good spot.
Calls and data bar is instant. Handset depending on what time you call in can take up to 24hours but does not prevent you accessing the phone data or using the phone outside of the uk.

I know the person who took the phone can access all the data and use the phone in a forgien country where the imei number is not blacklisted in the database...

I just wanted to know how long does it take to perform a full blockage on a phone and make it blacklisted!! Thanks
