  • Precaution When Buying a Phone in Indonesia

    From , 09 July 2019

    Because it is estimated that around 20% of the phones sold in Indonesia are illegal , the Indonesian government is thinking to issue a Regulation on 17 August 2019 to block the use of such phones in Indonesia by checking the IMEI / International Mobile Equipment Identity code , a 14 to 16 digits code which usually identify each phone (there is no more details about the Regulation) .

    From Wikipedia , IMEI is sometimes used to block the use of stolen phone by the cell phone service providers in some countries .

    So be aware about it when the Regulation comes .
