How to check cellphone IMEI – Each cellphone has a different IMEI number. This is an international identity issued by the Global System for Mobile Association (GSMA) in the form of a 15 digit number. This serial number is needed to identify telecommunications tools or equipment connected to a cellular mobile telecommunications network.
Now what is being hotly discussed this time is that the IMEI number must be registered with the Ministry of Industry when a cellphone is to be sold on the Indonesian market. So if our cellphone’s IMEI has not been registered, it will automatically not receive cellular network services, according to reports circulating.
That’s why now we need to check whether the IMEI of the cellphone is registered in the Ministry of Industry’s database or not, if our cellphone turns out to be a BM (black market) item, it’s possible we won’t be able to enjoy the service again.

Meanwhile, Black Market cellphones that have been used now or are active (connected to a cellular network) until April 17 will have no effect. This means that it can still be used as usual. Those of you who used a cellphone before this regulation came into effect do not need to worry even if the IMEI check is not registered.
