The Tip of the Week is- Mobile Phone Safety. The following practical measures can help in preventing and reducing mobile phone theft. Register your mobile phone with your service provider. Enable the PIN security feature and keep your phone locked at all times. When out and about keep your phone out of public view, be streetwise and always be aware of your surroundings. Never leave your mobile behind in an unattended vehicle. If your phone is lost or stolen, contact your service provider immediately to suspend your service and prevent unauthorised calls being made and billed to you.
