  2. I Lost my Nokia 2 Android phone about three weeks ago. I need it to be tracked. Please, apart from the Police Report that i need to upload, what other requirements are involved on or after tracking successful?

  3. Hi. I want to track my phone. I tried calling the number you put up but its been off for days. I have filled the online form and uploaded the police report.

  4. Thanks a lot Admin… I lost my Android Techno Pouvoir 2 Pro on the 9-06-2019 last week Sunday at about 0430hrs and I have been hearing a lot on it that I can’t see it back is it through that I can’t see it back?, because I hear that They used to change IMEI Number is it through? pls Kindly answer my question one by one

    1. well, we can’t under estimate what they can do. Changing of iMei number if possible may not be easy and its a criminal act. but i’m sure recent phones have the recent security measure which will make it difficult for the hackers to change the imei number. Again, that person or the organisation that can change imei number won’t be the one going out in the street to steal peoples phone

  5. My phone was stolen 3days ago, plz how long do it takes to track and get my phone back, and pls how much is the fee they usually charge?
