    Angry Some F****r stole my iPhone can it be shut down?

    Whilst visiting my parents over Christmas some absolute w****r decided to help themselves to my 3 week old iphone 3G from my pocket. I was wondering if it is possible for apple to shut the phone down remotely if I give them the MAC address and IMEI number so the asshole that has it now has a useless brick.

    If you can I would contact the network that supports the phone and ask them if they can block the IMEI number.

    In some countries you can add your IMEI to a blacklist and it will be unusable within the country. But you have to be strong with your demand for it, usally they not going to do so.

    If you use Microsoft Exchange as your email service, you can wipe the device clean with Outlook for Web Access.
