Sorry to hear about this, cooldhaya. Like Zinam mentioned, once lost is lost but you did a good thing calling up Airtel to block the SIM. I have lost a couple of mobiles in the local trains here [anger].

Last year when I visited Mumbai, My relatives advised to keep watch on expensive items while travelling, Even they too lost their couple of cells.
I heard a lot about the Bombay's Local trains so how could my trip end without travelling in them? It was night time, had my handycam with me and the rush was too much, Can't forget that trip. But however, I had a lot of fun in Bombay also the people are quite helpful. Will love meet you all whenever I make visit next time. [:)]

Engineering semester exams? Boy, cancelled due to rains? Is it raining so badly there?
I'm a commerce student
what is it like a flood situation or what, exams cancelled due to rain [shock]
Nothing here actually. I was wondering why they declared so. Yeah, it rained heavily, but not like declaring holiday and all. But, Chennai's condition is bad.

Oh freak!! Did not know that. I hope all you guys are ok, without any cold, cough / fever.

Cheers,

Its raining all over Tamilnadu and Chennai has been affected badly.

You are lucky!!! they have not cancelled for us here in chennai!!!
You think i'm lucky? I've to write them again this Saturday. And we've planned to go to Tirupati for the weekend as a family by train and even the tickets for Darshan is ready.

My bro has lost his mob!![cry] any suggestion and solutions?? we already contacted AIRTEL customer care and told them to block that sim.
I think we can track the lost mobile with the help of imei number. You should make a police complaint and the mobile company will help them to trace the phone. But its highly impractical, you've to bribe the cops, and our system is too slow and has lot of hassles to find it. If you know someone in police, give a try.

The cell can be traced. Does your brother have the cellphone' box & bill ?

Every cell has a IMEI no,this no appears on the service providers computers.So the guy who has stolen it or has found it will put his sim card(service provider) in it.

So you have to go to all the service providers in your area with a xerox copy of the FIR and give them you cell's IMEI no. They search it & if they find it,they give the sim card owners details to the police & the finally if you are lucky you get the cell back.

The thing is cops are very lazy & try to avoid all the running here and there.[lol]

Instead of trying all these you can better buy a new mobile!

By the way what mobile is that? A High end Phone ?

Even my sem exams going on!! finishing on 27th only!!![frustration]

And about the phone we got an FIR copy. luckily my bro has got a theft insurance for his mobile!! when we contacted UNIVERCELL( tat is the place he bought the phone) they said that they will give the FIR copy to CYBER CRIME . After further investigations if they find the mob they will give it back else we get 50-60% of the cost of the mob back!! we have to buy another phone by adding some extra money in that same shop only!!
