Anatel started January this year a new phase of blocking the non-homologated mobile phones in Sao Paulo stat, the largest state with active cell phone lines in the country, and another 14 states.
If you are unaware of your own phone, it is possible to know if you have any of the devices that will be blocked. See more details…
The 15 states that will have this action are:
Alagoas, Amapá, Amazonas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Minas Gerais, Paraíba, Pará, Piauí, Pernambuco, Rio Grande do Norte, São Paulo, Sergipe, Roraima….
On a first moment, the agency will only issue warnings to the people that activates a pirate phone from today on, and the message will be:
“Carrier warns: By the law 9.472 this mobile phone will not work anymore within 75 days”
The blocking of these devices will start on March 24th. Until then, notifications will be sent.
