How to check if your phone is valid.

The market has been flooded with illegal phones. Replicas of expensive smartphones of various well-known brands are also available. Ordinary people are the victims of fraud. Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has taken initiative to identify and stop the sale of illegal phones.

BTRC has recently requested the media to verify the validity of the handset by verifying the IMEI before buying the phone. The full form of IMEI is the International Mobile Equipment Identity.

Every mobile has 15 digit IMEI number. Which is programmed in when making a mobile handset. There is a separate IMEI number for each phone. This number carries the identity of the mobile handset.

Customers wishing to purchase the phone can know the 15 digit IMEI number by dialing * # 06 # from the respective mobile phone.

A return SMS will let the user know if the handset was imported legally.BTRC has already created a database for International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) numbers of legally imported mobile sets since January 2018.
