Check IMEI code: Did you buy a smartphone abroad? What you should do to ensure that your phone is NOT blocked | ANSWERS

If you are one of the users who bought a smartphone abroad, it is important to know what to do so that your cell phone is not blocked as part of the initiative of OSIPTEL to fight against smuggling and crime. In the following note we will tell you what you should know about this question that more than one person asks themselves, among other information related to the subject.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO SO THAT THE SMARTPHONE YOU BOUGHT ABROAD DOES NOT GET BLOCKED

To prevent the smartphone you bought abroad from being blocked by Osiptel, you must follow some important steps. First, make sure you register your local telephone line with an authorized operator in Peru. This involves going to the operator with your National Identity Document (DNI) and the smartphone documents that confirm its legality, such as the box where the device’s IMEI code appears. Verify that this code matches the one displayed on your smartphone to avoid future problems.

It is advisable to purchase the smartphone from official stores abroad or importing companies registered in Peru with their respective RUC. This ensures that the device comes from legitimate sources and is properly registered. If you have brought the cell phone in the last few months or years, do not worry, as it will not be automatically blocked; the count for the white list begins on April 22, 2024.

In case your device is not registered in the aforementioned “white list,” Osiptel will proceed to block it approximately four to six months after the registration begins. If the cell phone has never been registered with a local operator, Osiptel will issue an alert instead of blocking it immediately, giving you time to regularize the situation with the company that sold you the device and avoid possible sanctions or legal problems.

THE STEPS TO FOLLOW TO KNOW YOUR IMEI CODE AND CHECK IF IT APPEARS CLONED OR DUPLICATED ACCORDING TO OSIPTEL

Since modern times, almost at the end of the 20th century, the appearance of the so-called Smartphone has represented a significant contribution to public telecommunications services, but at the same time generated that these types of cell phones are the main target of crime, this being the reason why Osiptel initiates disincentive campaigns and offers the necessary tools to identify the IMEI that identifies them.

Through the promulgation of laws, the body attached to the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (PCM) seeks to mitigate the impact of a robbery and its consequences after the alteration of precisely the code composed of 15 digits.

The IMEI is nothing more than a series of numbers that identifies your cell phone anywhere in the world, and according to Osiptel You can find out or obtain it by taking into account the following information:

– Locate it on the back of the phone, exactly in the tray where the SIM card is inserted or under the battery.

– If you do not have your cell phone on hand, obtain it from the equipment box and/or from the purchase documents.

– Get it by dialing *#06#

Regarding both, remember that the 15-digit code must match because otherwise we would be facing a case of fraud or probable cloning or alteration of the series that you can also certify by Check Your IMEI.

According to information shared by Osiptel, consult online “If the IMEI code that identifies your phone is registered as stolen, lost, as well as due to fraud, duplicated or cloned, invalid or if it has been unlocked after being recovered”, just by entering the link above and entering the corresponding number of numbers.

Regarding the detection and blocking of cloned IMEIs, the government entity reports that to date and after the start of the third stage of operation of the National Registry of Mobile Terminal Equipment for Security (Renteseg), more than 1,000 people have been identified 600 mil altered codes and “copied to other computers to commit fraud, extortion and scams”.
