i know many ov us think stolen mobiles can be unlocked but m pretty sure not.
My father's mobile got stolen. Since it was a Samsung, i had the tracker thing on with my number as well as my brother's fed in it. for those who do not know, when a sim is changed, the mobile automatically sends an sms with the IMEI number from the new sim. this way you get both the sender's number as well your phone's number to tell the police. anyhow, i called the guy up and he refused to accept. my brother called too and the guy claimed to have bought it. a few days later, he rang by bro up begging to get the phone unlocked claiming to have found it somewhere on the ground. the obstinate guy never returned it but at least we got convinced complaining works.
if every victim ov cellphone robbing does the same, perhaps this menace would end one day.
