A quality control procedure will be put in place for all mobile phone imports from next year, Anusha Palpita, Director General of the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission told Daily Mirror online.

He added that there was no quality control for import of mobile phones at the moment and that cheap low quality and unreliable phones were being sold in the island.  An EMI number is available in original, quality regulated phones and most of the phones in the market do not posses this identification, Director Palpita said.

    madness... it's not only about price.. it's about radiation -> Cancer

    Minister Monday, 04 October 2010 09:17 AM

    What people cry for today is the quality in governance and not of mobile phones.

    Concerned Monday, 04 October 2010 09:20 AM

    When a mobile phone is lacking quality only the buyer suffers, but when the quality of the governance is lacking, the entire nation suffers.

    Thilini Monday, 04 October 2010 09:36 AM

    A good excuse for the retail sellers to jack up their prices.

    Please ensure quality service from the providers first.

    Bird Eye Monday, 04 October 2010 10:35 AM

    There are no proper filters on these cheap low quality phones. The harmful radiating Microwave escapes and damage the health.
