Pre-paid / pay as you go SIM cards are readily available in Malta. In order to obtain a monthly contract with a mobile phone provider, however, it is usually necessary to provide:
- e-Residence Card
- Credit card or bank details
- Proof of address
If your mobile phone is lost or stolen it is important to call the operator. They will be able to block the SIM card and in some cases use the IMEI code to prevent the use of the phone entirely. If the phone is recovered this process can be reversed.
If a phone has been stolen it is necessary to report it to the police, who will request information from the mobile phone operator to try and track down the stolen device.
As well as your phone number, make and model, it is worth noting the identification number (IMEI) of the phone in case it gets stolen (key *#06# into the handset).
A wide variety of security apps are available for smart phones that can aid in the tracking of the device if it is stolen.
