    Dude IMEI number can only be used to block the phone so that the thief cannot use the phone anymore.Its not easy to track the cell phone and even if you are able to track down the phone its very unlikely the cops are going to help you get it back.Anyway in india the service providers dont have that option either so its of no use if you have the IMEI number….
