The days of fake mobile handsets are over in Bangladesh


The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has issued a warning regarding the purchase of illegal, counterfeit, cloned mobile phones.


The BTRC said in a statement that if the mobile handset with IMEI is connected to the network, it will be disconnected from the network through the National Equipment Identity Register (NIER).


"In this case, before purchasing a mobile phone handset, the IMEI accuracy of the set is verified by following the procedure below and a purchase receipt is requested from the seller.


Go to the message option of any mobile phone and enter KYD <space> 15 digit IMEI number and send it to 16002. "

You can know the IMEI of the handset by dialing * # 06 #. The notification was issued in the public interest.
