The Paraguayan House of Representatives recently approved a bill that would force mobile phone operators to block all phones reported as stolen, lost or stolen. To do this, an international system that allows identification of all mobile devices must be used, called IMEI. However, there is no information displayed by the location. I guess the thief must have used the mobile cell phone jammer and GPS jammer to shield the signal.
In the project that has been sent to the implementing agency, it can be determined that the operator is responsible for the blockade, but the premise is that the line owner has a complaint corresponding to any method in advance. It is determined that even if the owner has provided the IMEI number of the mobile phone, even if the mobile phone has been purchased from another company, the company must also lock the device. Usually our mobile phone has the use of important information, we can use a mobile cell phone jammer to protect it when not in use.
The main purpose of this legislation is to prevent the daily increase in cell phone thefts in Paraguay, many of which ultimately lead to death. When blocking, an additional consideration should also be considered, namely that the owner must submit a police report to formally prove that the device was stolen or lost.
How do you check the IMEI of your phone?
New phones usually have the IMEI number printed on the device box, although you can also find it under the battery on the back of the phone. IMEI consists of 15 numbers, which can identify the device internationally.
If you lose the packing box, the purchased second-hand phone does not have the packing box or the IMEI label has been removed, you can use the system option to verify. For devices using Android operating system (Samsung, Huawei, Motorola, LG, Alcatel, etc.), please check *#06# and IMEI will be displayed on the screen immediately. In the iPhone device, you should go to "Settings", "General" and "Information", where you can find the serial number, IMEI/MEID and ICCID of the device.
