The Ukrainian State Center of Radio Frequencies reported that the generalized data base having mobile phones’ ІМЕІ codes was fully operational. Users of mobile phones, who switched on their devices prior to Sept. 1, 2009, may check up their phones in this list.
The procedure includes sending SMS-message with the code to the short number 307, or visiting the site of the Ukrainian State Center of Radio Frequencies.
At present the “white list” comprises 79 147 956 ІМЕІ codes. In future only legally imported mobile phones will be added to the list.
So, today while buying a phone be sure to check its code in the Ukrchastot database. Subsequently smuggled phones will be disabled.
