Does suspending my account also blacklist my stolen phone? I want my stolen handset blacklisted, but at no point during the Koodo "suspend account" process was I asked to enter the IMEI number or if I want the handset blacklisted. I have since bought a new SIM card and am awaiting my new phone to arrive (internet order).   (Meanwhile I reactivated my account using my new SIM hoping to see what text msgs I've missed, but it appears that only delivered msgs are shown under "Usage").

According to a post from a few days ago here, your undelivered text messages are held for about 5 days, then recycled. It wouldn't hurt to send Koodo a private message on Facebook or Twitter to make sure your set is put on the blacklist. You just have to click on either of those logos at the bottom right of this page.

Thanks Bob!  Are you referring to the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube logos at bottom right?  ...for various reasons I refuse to use Facebook, and will only use Twitter if I absolutely have to (have never done it).   ...will YouTube work?  ...it seems odd to execute a personal transaction using a public social-media platform.

Share your concern 100%. (Un)fortunately, that's the new ways of the info-world.... using Facebook or Google to sign in and let the whole info-oligarchy follow you around.
