Hi everyone.

 

First time here, hope I chose the correct board.

 

I've lost my phone - first time for that too.

 

I've no access to another mobile or landline (payphone was eating money like crazy)

 

Called it, answered by a female, said she knew me, started discussing arrangements to pick it up, bad connection or she went silent.

Hung up, called again, no answer.

Got my nephew to call & text numerous times, kept ringing, no reply to either, then the phone was switched off.

I have important stuff relating to a legal case and it's vital I try to get the phone back.

GPS switched off, no tracker but are O2 still able to locate my phone?

If not, how do I report it to O2 to get the phone blocked?

 

Thanks everyone for any help : )

Edit: If your GPS is switched off your phone can't be tracked.

Hi Jonsie

 

Thanks for the help but I don't have access to any phone. I was hoping to just simply chat  with or e-mail Customer Service so they can block the phone.

 

Thanks : )

@ScoobyDoo64 

You can report it through live chat although they are closed now.

A link will appear on the contact page when they re available in the morning http://www.o2.co.uk/contactus

Make sure it is reported one way within 24 hours.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
