It was decided at Christmas that IT_Guy and clan would all get mobile phones as we thought the kids could be trusted with them and they're pretty cheap. I got pay as you go phones and was in two minds as to whether I should register them online or avoid the hassle and deluge of junk emails and not bother, as it was easy to top them up online I decided to bite the bullet, it has proved rather fortunate that I did. When my daughter left her phone in the local shop and upon enquiring it had not been handed in my wife, despite our previous experiences with plod, decided to report it stolen and was soon in possession of yet another crime number and the usual 'not much we can do' attitude. I called TMobile to get the phone blocked and suddenly remembered that all calls made since it was nicked would be listed on the website as the phone was registered. Bingo! almost all the credit was used up and I had a list of numbers both landline and mobile! Wifey excitedly calls plod with the news and is told that firstly they will let her know if they need the numbers and secondly not to call the numbers as it would be classed as harrasment. Showing the usual deference and respect for the local plod we ignored their warnings and repeatedly called all the numbers asking who called them from a stolen phone, we also text all the numbers offering a reward for the name of the thief. We received a text from one of the numbers this morning informing us that the phone had now been handed in at the local shop, daughter now has her phone back - result! So if you have a pay as you go mobile make sure to register it, there's hours of fun to be had if you loose it! Oh, how much should I charge the plod for doing their job for them?
