I read that it is possible to totally disable a stolen iPhone using its IMEI number. Can I do it online or do I need the help of my provider T-Mobile which means a trip to the store? Thanks

Call Customer Care.  They can add it to the blacklist  making it unusable on any US and Canadian carrier.  If you happen to get the phone back, you can call in and have the blacklist removed.
