Earlier this week, I lost my phone. Yep, the same one I just bought a few months ago. 🙁
Which made me think, since all phones have a unique IMEI number, why isn’t there some sort of national registry where I can lodge my IMEI number (after proving that I indeed purchased that phone.)
The purpose? All service providers in the country will be required to constantly check with this registry and search their networks for the phone with that IMEI number
They could then track the user of that phone and thus return the lost/stolen phone to its rightful owner!
