The National Communications Agency (Enacom) announced a few days ago that it is working to eradicate the sale of cell phone

The National Communications Agency (Enacom) announced a few days ago that it is working to eradicate the sale of cell phone
equipment that has been smuggled into the country.

Its owner, Miguel de Godoy, said that “the bulk of the problem” are these cases of illegal entry and not the equipment that
Argentines buy outside the country. “We are working, the main problem is smuggling, and there we have a task that started with
the campaigns for people to register the IMEI”, the number that identifies each team.
He indicated that they received the concern of the brands, but clarified that “we are working on a project that exceeds that of
white lists, which did not work successfully in all countries,” he said in a conversation with Télam.

According to the brands consulted by Telam, 30% of the phones that are activated in Argentina were not sold in the country.

Sources of the sector indicated that of the 2.5 million equipment not sold in Argentina, about 2,000 correspond to Argentines
who bought equipment abroad.

It is the ID of a smartphone. It is the acronym of International Mobile Equipment Identity and is the unique identifier code of
a team. It has 15 digits and is a requirement for warranty, theft or repair. The numeric code is assigned to the equipment by
the manufacturer and the telephone operator has no relationship with the IMEI. That number is the one registered by the
government to know if someone’s phone paid taxes when entering the country or if it was entered irregularly. From

It is important to have the IMEI number identified. For that there are several options to find it. The number appears on the
product box and also on the internal label of the device under the battery. But if it is a sealed equipment and the box is not
at hand, you have to dial on the telephone keypad * # 06 # and the screen will show the IMEI number of the smartphone.

A little more than a month before the arrival of 2018, the dissemination of a rule that would block smartphones purchased
abroad could impact the consumption decisions of Argentines abroad.
