Honduras implements blocking system for stolen mobile phones

Friday 21 March 2014 | 22:07 CET | News
The president of the National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel) of Honduras, Ricardo Cardona, said it will start blocking stolen mobile phones, reports Proceso. Stolen devices will be put on a blacklist, so that they cannot be activated anywhere in the world.  According to Cardona, the blacklist system foresees that stolen phones are completely blocked, i.e. cannot be used in Honduras, or anywhere in the world.  In order to install this system, an agreement will be signed with mobile operators. GSMA will provide the technology to install the system in the country.
