Friends, my sister lost her Redmi note 4 that I gifted her a month back.. She visited a bank branch, and someone stole the phone when she kept on cashier’s desk and was filling a form.. I have already filed a FIR, but want to find out if anything else can be done to recover her phone? There is lots of imp data and photos in the phone.

Since the phone is lost in bank, request the bank to check cctv footage

Luckily Mi is a inbuild battery phone so the theif cant do more than switching off
So there is an option in mi phones to track the location and the link is : https://googleweblight.com/i?u=https://xiaomi-m...

Or else you can login to your google account and there is an option for tracking it !!
So try doing these both methods it will work as its a non removeable battery phone !!

Tks friends for such quick response @jwhwbisj we already saw footage.. Police will be taking the footage from bank on Monday.. But it’s not very clear and I don’t know how easy it would be to find amongst millions of ppl

@zafarkhan4433 I didn’t enable the android tracking from settings.. But yes, she was always logged in to her google account.. Will this help in tracking?

@pjsandyy @getready I didn’t create MI account either.. So don’t think MI tracking will be possible https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_sad.gif

I hope she is using lock screen password at least
I got fedup asking my sister to use lock screen password but she always preferred to use none

If you are not using mi account, then retrieval of data is not possible if she is using lock n device is not rooted

But they can completely wipe the device and sell it off

Also, I have yet blocked the 2 sims (idea and jio) as I am guessing that by mistake if the theif starts the phone, his location will get tracked. Do u think I should block?

Even for sim block they might ask u FIR

No idea about that !! But try logging to gmail account in PC and there is an option of android device manager !! These may help you out !!
2. Block those idea and jio nos and take a new sim card of the same nos , its possible just take adhar card and get the same mobile no with new sim . https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

IMEI can be changed, but most people aren’t that sophisticated.
Try logging into android device manager through the play store/gmail account used on that phone and see if its able to connect or locate the device.
It is possible that device manager service was active by default ( mostly it isn’t) but still give it a try.
You should get both sims blocked.
Police can track the IMEI, as soon as he will try to use it with new sim card, the device can be traced.
Most people wait 6-12 months before powering on the stolen device.

You have to specifically ask for tracking , they charge you around 1500 or something i guess

Guys. Someone broke the window pane of my car and took my bag which had redmi note 4 that I had puchased just 3 days ago. Please help me to recover it. I will be really indebted for any support that I can get. I did have MI account logged in. Tried using android device manager but it says location unavailable so I tried the option of resetting the data. Please tell me if anything else can be done. https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_sad.gif
Have already lodged FIR.

This device can be looked I guess only if u have enabled settings from Android device manager which I did not unfortunately. Mi plan doesn’t cover theft.

you can see location history to track where the phone was after it was stolen, provided after stolen, the phone got internet connectivity either through wifi or wan.

1) Goto https://www.google.com/maps/ti...ne login to the gmail account which is linked to your phone select date and time to see where the phone was at what time.
2) Use android device manager to lock and change password (theif might watch you unlocking to know the password) of your phone https://www.android.com/devicem...er.

All the thief can do is use the device for spares only ( to use display or other parts for other damaged phones) reason being,

1) you have logged in to your google account in phone and locked the device, in that case even if the theif resets the device it will ask the original google account to be logged in to use.
2) Since you have made a FIR, police would have added the IMEI’s to their tracking list and broadcasted to all operators, so the moment when someone inserts SIM, they will get caught.

On the other hand If the device is rooted, it is very easy to change the IMEI but not everyone knows this option.
