    Is it possible to find your service provider from the number?

    We need to block a phone stolen by an ex employee but it's pay as you go and we can't remember which provider it's with.
     
  2. You can you will need to go into a phone shop and ask very nicely to do it for you. As there computers are the lords to be when it comes to phones and they might be able to tell you the IMS number as well if you dont know it. Your phone number is for the sim card and the IMS number is for the phone its the IMS number you will need to kill the phone and the phone number to kill the sim card.



    Good luck

    If you give me the first 6 digits I will let you know the service provider.

    Surely if it is stolen and you know who has stolen it you should be reporting this to the police, no?

    How do you do that though, in these days of portable numbers?

    The original service provider will know which provider the number has been "ported" to.

    If the number has never been ported to another provider then yes you can and a shop should know that say 07970 is Orange.
