Hello and welcome to Just Answer!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you.

You should report the loss to your phone service provider and give them the IMEI number so they can block the phone's IMEI and SIM. Until you notify your network operator and tell them of the loss / theft you may be liable for the cost of any calls made. It will also be placed on a national database and hence blocked on other networks.

Details of the contact numbers for all networks operators are available on their websites under the contact section.

You should also register any of your phones on the folllowing website :

And mark as lost or stolen when necessary.
