Chinese phones are not an unheard term for anyone. We all knows that Chinese phones are getting more popular by every second day. But seems Govt. is going to impose ban on the Chinese phones. Recently, the Telecom Department decided to block all calls from Chinese phone as security agencies found that these Chinese phones do not have any IMEI or International Mobile Equipment Identity Number.
Since mobile phones without IMEI number are big security hole and also recently, the mobile phones used by terrorist had no IMEI numbers. Telecom department is working upon the issue and we may soon see the ban on calls made by Chinese phones. Telecom Dept has also asked mobile vendors to stop selling Chinese Phones.
The IMEI number is unique with every mobile and it allows to trace and identify the mobile phone.
