Smartphones Russians want to rewrite for a fee in 2021

Smartphones Russians want to rewrite for a fee in 2021
In order to exclude illegal deliveries of smartphones to Russia and protect citizens from theft of smartphones, the authorities decided to pay for registration of all mobile phones by serial number. A new initiative will be required.

According to "Merchant", According to the revised draft law of a group of members of the Federation Council, the innovation may come into force on July 1, 2021. Owners of new phones will have to register their smartphone when purchasing a smartphone using the international mobile equipment identifier IMEI.

According to the document, the registration procedure will be established by the government. Earlier it was reported that the cost of such a procedure will not exceed 100 rubles. At the same time, devices that are already in use in Russia can be registered free of charge. Smartphones that will be purchased for government purposes will be exempt from registration.

If the device fails to register, for example, its IMEI number matches the one already in the database, the device may be blocked. Stolen cell phones will also be able to block by IMEI number.

Telecommunications operators can not yet say how much the innovation will cost. However, the majority appreciates the new law positively. According to representatives of MTS and Tele2, such registration can whitewash the smartphone market.

Meanwhile, manufacturers of gadgets are sure: the measure can be effective if the emphasis is placed on supporting the rule of law. However, the procedure should be free for citizens.
