We keep a surprising amount of information on our mobile phones these days. If your phone gets lost or stolen, it can be devastatingly inconvenient to your daily life.
You should preview the security options at your disposal when you first acquire your boost mobile and when you replace it. The most common security measures include 'Find my iPhone' for iPhone users and 'Android Device Manager' for Android devices.
The first step if your Boost mobile phone is lost or stolen is to try and locate with the two features mentioned above. For Android phones that are linked to a Google account, finding out the phone's last known location is done by going to 'Android Device Manager.' You can then take the information to the authorities so they can track the thief or decide to confront him/her yourself.
You can even make the phone ring depending on the Android version you are using and granted the phone is on. You can also 'Enable Lock and Erase' on your Boost mobile so no one gets your personal information.
If you find your phone, you should change the details including the PIN. If you don't find it and decide to get a replacement, the next step is to order a new SIM card from Boost. Boost will send you a blank SIM card within 2 to 5 days and the stolen SIM card can be disabled so it is not misused in your stead.
Replacing the lost SIM card serves two purposes. The first is to disable the stolen SIM card so that no one else can use it. The second is that it enables you to transfer your account details so you can use the same number and the remaining airtime therein.
To order a new SIM card, you have to contact Boost directly. When you reach Boost customer support, it is advised that you request call barring of your stolen SIM to block fraudsters. However, you will need to activate it once the new SIM card arrives.
