Ive moved to another place so I forgoted there its a long time ago :(
please help me to find my phone its very important for me
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

I am trying to do that however an IMEI number is ***** to locate the physical phone with you phone number its of no use. anyone using your phone must not be using the same number correct he/she must have thrown the sim out and must be using a new number on your phone set. All you have to do is try to get a copy of the bill from the shop you purchased and they will not deny providing you a duplicate invoice for the phone purchase once you have the IMEI number you can yourself track your phone from the link i gave. I hope i am able to make you understand the logic behind how we can track your actual phone.

That's the only way to find it?
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

That is the only way to find it the other way is if you would have already installed and registered with antitheft with google then also you can find it.using another phone.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
how can I do that?
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

That too must have been installed from the google app store on the lost phone google android manager app.

Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

you can report the lost with your local police and they will also ask you for the invoice and the imei number.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
how else I can find this IMEI?i bought the phone from carphones
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

you can go to the shop you got the phone from and ask for a duplicate bill and they will not deny it might take some time but they can give you the bill tell them that you need the bill for a police report registration.

If your phone was registered with the google app then you can find it otherwise you will have to lodge a police report for the lost phone police can track the IMEI from the phone service provider and they can get the result in 2 days and you will know who is using the phone the person will be caught too.
