#kamisukareview – To prevent the circulation of illegal cellphones now the public can check the HP IMEI on the Ministry of Industry website for 2020, how?
Three Indonesian ministries, namely the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kominfo) and the Ministry of Industry (Kemenperina) and the Ministry of Trade (Ministry of Trade) have worked together to implement new regulations related to blocking illegal cellphones circulating in the Indonesian homeland market today.
If your cellphone has two sim slots, there will be two IMEI numbers that appear and are included in the cellphone sales package box, before the cell phone is sold in Indonesia, all of these IMEI numbers have been registered at the Ministry of Industry.
For information, IMEI or International Mobile Equipment Identity is a unique identity number issued by the GSM Association for each sim card slot released by a cellphone manufacturer.
Currently the Ministry of Industry is waiting for all MSISDN (mobile subscriber integrated services digital network number) data from all cellular operators in the country to further check the illegal cell phone circulating in consumers when users activate their SIM card numbers.
How to Check HP IMEI at the Ministry of Industry 2020
So that the Ministry of Industry has pocketed all IMEI numbers from these official cellphones and put them in the database. To facilitate the management of the IMEI number, our government also has an identification system to check illegal cellphones, the system is called Device Identification, Registration, and Blocking System or DIRBS.
Like IMEI, MSISDN is an identification number given by each operator on the SIM card that is circulated to the market.
How it works more or less is as follows; when a cellphone is connected to the network operator, the operator will install the application on their system and check the IMEI number of the device used, then the system will scan the IMEI number and compare it with the DIRBS system in the Ministry of Industry, if the IMEI number does not appear then it means the cellphone it is illegal and the network connection will be disconnected.
Well, this new regulation will actually be enforced starting on August 17, while we are still waiting for the rule to be enacted, all people can actually check the IMEI number on their mobile phones through the Ministry of Industry.
Check HP IMEI at the Ministry of Industry:
1 First check the IMEI number on your cellphone, by pressing * # 06 # and IMEI number will immediately appear on your mobile screen. Another way to check the IMEI number is usually in the section Settings – About Phone. Or there is in the cell phone sales box.
2. Open an internet browser then access to the address https://www.kemenperin.go.id/imei
3. Enter your IMEI code earlier in the column provided
4. Then the information will come from the legality of mobile phones through the IMEI entered earlier.
If the checked cellphone is registered, information will appear related to the brand and type of cellphone along with the company that is distributing the cellphone to Indonesia.
If the results do not appear, there are two possibilities that occur, the first may be the IMEI number from the cell phone has not entered the Ministry of Industry database, second possibility, it may be that the cell phone is illegally entered or often referred to as black market aka BM.
That's the way to check the cell phone IMEI on the Ministry of Industry's website that you can do before the government officially applies the regulations above,
