    (Sorry if this is long.)
    On Friday I found out another student had my stolen phone, with the same white and black case and all. He used it during class and the teacher got it from him. She instantly recognized it as my phone. I used my Lookout account, which had my stolen phone's imei. I searched for the Imei number on "his" phone and it showed the same exact number on my account.
    The kid said he bought it from a friend, and kept saying it is his.

    It was given to the police, and the police said i needed proof and will return with the phone on monday. Will just the imei help? The teacher took pictures of them matching but I'm not sure she showed it.
    My uncle gave me the account number too, and even had a picture of me using the phone that showed the same phone case.

    The phone case even had the same yellow stain that was left after i had tape on it.

    Again, sorry if this is long, but I really need help if the information I have would work. I'm not giving up on it if I found out the kid in my same class has it right there.

    All my stuff on it was replaced with his stuff. So I really hope the police can look at what it had before it was all reset.
    I mean come on, they're police. They can still view messages from criminals that has been deleted.

    The imei is a good start...but I am not sure if it is solid enough. If it were me...I would go to my carrier, tell them what happened, and ask if they have paper copy of your serial number.

    The IMEI is wordly unique - IOW, there's mot another phone in the world with that IMEI. The carrier can give you a printout of your phone's IMEI, and that's legal proof that the phone's yours. (The IMEI is the "serial number" of a cellphone.)

    Definitely the serial number and proof of your account.

    Thank you I'll visit here more!
    Oh and sadly the thief wiped all of my apps and pictures off my phone...I had the pictures backed up to my sd card, which he luckily didn't bother taking out.
    I don't think I backed up some of them though.
    Even though, at least I got it back!
