Nokia is one of the largest cell phone companies in the world. The company offers different kinds of mobile phones with different features. Each Nokia mobile phone has its own unique serial number. It is important to know your Nokia cell phone's serial number so that, in case your phone is lost or stolen, you can report it to your phone service provider and give the serial number so they can be able to block your phone, making it totally not usable.
