Lost or stolen device
If your device has been lost or stolen, we're available 24 hours a day to help. We can block your device, and send you a new sim with your existing number. If your device has been stolen, you need to let us and the police know within 24 hours. If it's been lost, just let us know within 24 hours. We'll then cap your liability for calls and data to £100, in case there is any unauthorised use of your device.

Making a claim
If you're making an insurance claim, we'll transfer you directly to O2 Insure, who will process your claim. You'll also need at least one of the following:
- A crime reference number from the police.
- A loss reference number from the police or a relevant authority (e.g. Transport for London).
- The name of the police station where you reported your phone lost/stolen, and the name and badge number of the officer you spoke to.
Once you have this info, you can get in touch straight away using Live Chat, or on the numbers above.
