Every day, criminals steal about 50 phones in the country. This was confirmed by the Superintendency of Telecommunications (SUTEL) after a preliminary test of the system that will put a brake on the thieves.
For this reason SUTEL and mobile operators record the “ESN” of phones to help prevent reactivation of stolen phones.
This thanks to a system that blocks stolen phones to their owners, leaving them virtually useless.
If you are a victim of this, you should report immediately to the appropriate operator.
