    Yeah ... we are probably at that point. <GRIN>
    (this was quite a while ago and I was with the horrific
    BellSouth/Cingular at the time.)

    Whoever it was that stole my phone actually used it to make *and
    receive* a bunch of phone calls. Thanks to the wonders of CallerID
    this person wouldn't answer phone calls from myself.

    Even with all of this information the police and Bellsouth simply
    didn't care. :-(

    *67 then 1 + number brings up "Restricted" when you call a cell phone.
    --or--
    *67 + number

    It depends on your market whether you need to dial a 1 first.

    This happened to my wife (her purse and cell was stolen and used) and I had
    a list of numbers that they called and the police said they would look into
    it. I doubt they did. I ended up calling the numbers myself and talking to
    whoever answered. It ended up being the parents of kids the thief was
    calling and they said they would get the name of who called from their kid
    but it turned up to be a dead end.



    One thought, have a friend 3-way your cell. Or maybe you could call the
    numbers they called and see if you find a responsive person that will
    three-way a call for you (from a number the thief would recognize). Probably
    too late now since you probably shut it off. I wish we could just get the
    GPS info remotely from the phone.
