New software for Chinese and Korean mobiles
Apr 15, 2009 09:45 AM

It is a known fact that the Department of Telecom had issued notice to service providers to stop services to cell phones that do not have IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. Though the ban was to be implemented from March 31, there was an extension till April 15, heeding to the request of the service providers.

Now it seems there is some good news for people who hold Korean mobiles. The Cellular Operators

Korean mobile
Association of India (COAI) has contrived software for cell phones, which can help in identifying the mobile stations even without an IMEI number. Though this software may help overcome the ban, it is up to the Department of Telecom to approve this software.

The ban was imposed based on intelligence reports that terrorists use these cell phones that do not have an IMEI number thereby making it difficult to trace their location and identity.

A senior official stated that considering the fact that there are millions of customers who use such cell phones an alternative may be suggested instead of a ban.
