Odira , when I use this number(0248246464) as my emergency contact, incase my phone gets mising and my chip in the phone as at the time the phone got missing was this number( 0549913419) . when a phone gets missing or stolen the first thing the thief or the lucky finder of the phone does is to turn off the phone and remove the chip , so if the phone gets missing and the chip is changed and a message is sent to my emergency contact that my phone may be missing or stolen and I want to block the phone ,on which number do I send the SMS to ? Do I send it to the chip that has been taken out of the phone or what? Or how do I ensure the phone is locked.

    Try to remotely unlock the phone by sending #unlock# with your spouse number to the number that sent a warning to your spouse number when you removed the SIM.
