Unlike the Electronic Serial Number or MEID of CDMA and other wireless networks, the IMEI is only used to identify the device, and has no permanent or semi-permanent relation to the subscriber. Instead, the subscriber is identified by transmission of an IMSI number, which is stored on a SIM card which can (in theory) be transferred to any handset. However, many network and security features are enabled by knowing the current device being used by a subscriber.


The IMEI is of use for the central blacklist as a method of identifying a stolen handset, the only issue I can see would be a clone IMEI on a stolen handset, but unaware of how that would actually affect you with totally different MEID?

Happy to be told more.
Any cloned phone will be traceable as your phone.
If used for criminal purposes then you run the risk of accusations of involement.
With the world as it is I cannot believe that anyone would leave themselves wide open to such a possibilty.

thats the exact point though, the IMEI is a handset register, not a personal ID to it..

At the very least, some twunt could just make a note of your IMEI and then call any operator and say it's been stolen. Your phone then gets blacklisted and is rendered unusable.

Me: Hi.. my phones been stolen.

T-Mob - Whats your name

Me: I dont know.. but I have my IMEI can you block it?

T-Mob: You what??


I might test this theory and call the operorators up and see what you can do with the IMEI and being a 'twunt'

That's correct, but, still leaves an element of trace. Definately too risky for me.

Just wanted to provided the opportunity for singing applications as I've been doing a lot of reading about this. I understand that many people would be having difficulty creating an account with symbian signed. Therefore, if you would like me to sign any applications for you just send me a message along with your IMEI number and applicatio you'd like to get signed. I'll be able to do loads of these tomorrow and in the evening.

Thanks everyone!!

Err didn't korg_n95 read ANY of this thread before posting?

Hi guys,

I've signed up for symbiansigned, but I can't seem to find the downloads needed to intialise the files for 'sign me'.

Where do I need to look?

Ta.

Tail between my legs

Hi guys

I apologise unreserveably for my disgraceful email earlier on and I'm humbled by the polite response.

I was in a frustrated mood because of something else and didn't read the full instructions (like all consultants I have a tendency to think if I can't do it on my own the first time, there is a faulty with the tool and clearly on this occasion ... the fault was all mine).

I had downloaded the Symbian DevCert tool and run it manually generating the certificate, key and key file. I did this before Symbian put the service on hold but when I used signsis I used the wrong key (well ... it used it's own).

When I used the correct key and keyfile it all worked beautifully ... and rotateme is great.

So ... once again ... very sorry ...


Paul.

Honestly, in regards to the danger of presenting your IMEI on the forum: i think there is more harm to be done with presenting your email address in a form that is easily picked up by spammers or anyone here who just merely wants to have fun with it.

Any chance anyone can put me in the direction of downloading the files from SymbianSigned?

I still can't find them on site.

Ta.
