What about the carrier you use in India, do they have EIR (Equpiment ID Registration) on the network?

i called them.. they said they can't do anything

Can't or Won't? The bottom line is if someone puts in a SIM card and uses the phone on the same network, they (the carrier) would see it when it registered. IMSI/IMEI/Ki is transmitted when a GSM phone initially registers on a network. The IMEI is what would tell them its your phone. In some countries a police report is required before a carrier would take any action. Not sure if its the same in India...
