[AI] mobile phone stolen.

I vaguely know how exactly this 15 digit thing works, but these days, where 
passwords are being hacked, locking codes are being blown up (as if solving 
an easier math problem), I wouldn't be surprised to know if any thief has 
discovered a means of unlocking the IMEI number. One can't be so sure as to 
say, "so and so person is no longer using my cell, because I have disabled 
it.". What do you feel about insuring our expensive cellphones. Are they 
really cost-effective?. Thank you Vikas, for telling us how your cellphone 
was stolen.

Regards
Syed Imran
