DALLAS (KMOV.com) -- AT&T has announced the completion of the second phase of its stolen phone database, which enables customers to report and block stolen wireless devices. 

AT&T is now able to share data on stolen phones with other GSM carriers, allowing a reported stolen phone to be disabled on AT&T’s network.

Customers may report a stolen phone and suspend their service online at www.att.com/stolenphone, at an AT&T store, or by contacting AT&T Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500. Within 24 hours, AT&T will block the use of a device reported as stolen.
