How can I blacklist my cellphone?

Blacklist your stolen cellphone

  • Inform your network provider of your loss:
    • Cell C: 140 from Cell C numbers or 084-140 from other cellphone networks.
    • MTN: 173 (pre-paid) or 808 (contract) from MTN numbers or 083-1-173 from a landline or other cellphone networks.
    • Vodacom: 111 from a Vodacom number or 082-111 from a landline.
       
  • You will then receive a reference number to prove that your cellphone has been blacklisted.
     
  • Report the loss of your cellphone also to your nearest police station by providing the reference number of your black-listed cellphone. The police will then register a case.
     
  • A national police coordinator will receive monthly reports of the number of cellphones that have been robbed and stolen all over the country. He/she will then compile a national database of cellphones that had been black-listed in that month.
