First off make sure you suspended it and it's been marked by koodo and put on a "blacklist" so no one can activate it with any phone company here in Canada. Then report it to kijiji as well.And maybe even to the police.

If you still have your IMEI number punch it in here to see if it's on the "list". This is where everyone should check before buying any phone off kijiji. Otherwise they will pay for an expensive "paper weight". :-)

Call the police if you have the imei code that can prove its your device. Also report your phone as stolen if you have the imei # so it can not be used by anyone other than as a wifi only device. How exactly do you know it's your device exactly?

First and foremost, Thanks for the quick reply. The following day my phone was stolen, I then went to koodo online and suspended it. It has been a week or so that my phone got stolen. Ive been checking out kijiji as much as I can. Earlier today a new one ad showed up. Im not 100% sure its mine, the case had a certain mark I have left, and on his ad a picture say the "try again in a few seconds". Also, the provider is koodo. Lastly, thanks for the link @chris. I didnt know about the IMEI part. Much Thanks!

Tell the seller you are interested in the phone and ask for the IMEI number. Then you will know if it's yours or not. Koodo can match it up with your account.
