 Cell phone safety tips.
1. Always conceal your phone and only use it in a safe place.
2. Do not leave your phone on the seat next to you or on the
dashboard of your car whilst driving or when you are
stationary.
3. Do not leave your phone on a counter or desk whilst paying
or doing other business.
4. Never leave your phone unattended in your office.
5. If you have to leave your phone in a bag or somewhere
unattended, lock your keypad and then put on silent to avoid
it attracting attention when it rings.
6. Avoid being tricked by someone wanting to borrow your
phone to make a call, unless you know them well.
7. Avoid people trying to sell you a phone on the street or in
public places.
8. If your phone is lost or stolen, report it immediately to your
network operator, the South African Police and your insurer.
9. Request that your SIM card be blocked and your phone
blacklisted. Get a blacklisting reference number as
you will need this for your insurance claim and police report.

Refer to the network operator - information provided on
