Sample letter to police to report lost or stolen mobile phone
I recently registered a police complaint regarding a lost/stolen iPhone. You can download a sample letter I used to register the police complaint, reporting the lost phone.
My wife recently lost her iPhone at a public gathering place. We suspect it was lost from her pocket while getting up from a chair or it was stolen by someone from her pocket or bag. After blocking outgoing calls from the mobile number, we filed a complaint to the police. We weren't expecting the police would trace the phone but did it as a formality to avoid any hassles to us in case the phone was abused by the person who stole or got it.
