Sri Lanka to ban use of unregistered mobile phones

Jan 18, Colombo: Sri Lanka Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (TRC) has decided to ban the imported mobile phones that are not registered with the TRC.

TRC says modern equipment will be used to identify the unregistered mobile phones and remove them from use.

TRC Director General Anusha Palpita has said that all imported mobile phones should be registered and they are required to meet certain safety regulations.

The TRC will block the signals to the unregistered phones, he said.

TRC has taken steps to maintain a Central Equipment Identity Register and all the phones failing to register will be disabled by blocking the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) numbers.

However, the users of unregistered mobile phones at present will be granted a grace period to get them registered, a spokesman of the TRC said.

Is this your suggestion or has TRC thought about this yet.

Hmm.. this can bring additional revenue to Sri Lanka. All visitors Must rent or buy a registered phone in Sri Lanka.No phone bought outside SL will be registered. Else join queue for 2 hours at Air port to get your phone registered. Haha ( this is joke for those who take these things seriously)

Lot of things are easy peesy if they do it methodically and efficiently , But will they.

Submission online is easy. But it needs to get activated only after arriving in Sri Lanka.

With 1 million foriegners and so many others who reside outside, TFC need to think about who does and when it gets activated. Probably a new system will be needed to auto a link arrival ( passport scan ) with TRC .

So, we won't be able to use our mobile phones once we landed in the airport. We have to wait till TRC approve our registration. This is ridiculous.

I'm 99% sure that TRC will introduce a much relax methodology for all foreigners & sri lankan migrants who visit Sri Lanka. Hope no rule applies for at least 1st 6 weeks.

Overall this is absolutely crazy idea. I never been to a country has this kind of a rule ( or at least something come close to this) Shocked

I guess TRC can easily track people with this new registration.

When the big time smugglers, thugs. Drug traffickers and others who have the blessings of the brutal regime are using Secret Mobile telephone numbers sanctioned by the MoD for their clandestine operation, and then I am sure the TRC does not have to look far and request the list from MoD. Shocked
What standards we are talking about? Embarassed
When did Sri Lanka become Sweden? Very Happy

Good morning people Smile

This was news years ago. What happened then? Phone shops got them registered and the boxes carried the labels saying "Approved by TRC"

Anyway, even if you're getting a phone through ebay or gets sent through courier it must be registered (apart from tax). Not a huge amount.

Well in other thoughts, someone should get a cut out of the mobiles used in SL ne...
Now do we have to register a phone if we buy it on a short trip to Singapore or Malaysia too?

The way how our administrators are thinking will lead to the following in future,
the new born baby will be fitted (implanted) with a chip to track his/her movements and what they are talking even thinking (who knows?)

Comparing other countries, thinking personal difficulties and arguing of TRC foolish policies does not come to my mind. Why they doing it.. to track you.. to reduce phone usage in SL. Baseless arguments. For those things they have thousand of other methods to do. Why then?.
TRC objective is to ban very low quality phones been smuggled in to country. Otherwise our citizens health in great danger. This exercise must be done without any delay.
