  1. IMEI number is used in the case of mobile theft. Telecom operators have a database with the IMEIs number. When a mobile is lost, that handset IMEI number is marked invalid and mobile operators will restrict the use of any SIM card. Although, a smart thief can install an unmark IMEI number on the stolen handset and can reuse it again which is illegal. So, if your phone is lost or stolen, you can provide your IMEI number to your mobile network provider and ask them to disable the phone.
