Website of the Day: Wednesday 12th January 2005
Last June we introduced you to MEND UK – a site designed to help you recover or disable lost or stolen mobile phones. The pilot scheme was deemed a huge success with details of over 10 million mobiles already added to the register.
Today we went down to Scotland Yard for the official launch of immobilise.com which uses the existing MEND UK database to help further reduce mobile phone crime.
All you need do is register your mobile details with the site and if it ever gets lost or stolen, you can have it blocked across all mobile networks to render it useless. In addition if your phone is recovered by the police or by a public transport company, it greatly increases the chances of your phone being returned to you.
