Cell Phone Protection

  • Carry your phone with you whenever possible and make sure it is in a safe place whenever you leave it behind. If you are leaving your phone in your car, be sure it is hidden from view.
  • Turn off your phone when you are not using it.
  • Request a personal identification number.
  • Use the "lock" feature on your phone.
  • Report a stolen cellular telephone immediately to the cellular telephone carrier and Police.
  • Check your monthly bills carefully, and report unfamiliar calls to your cellular phone company.
  • Do not give out your electronic serial number or even your phone number to strangers, including callers who represent themselves as technicians testing your line.
  • Keep your subscriber agreement, which includes your electronic serial number, in a secure location.
