    I don't know the answer to your question, but I do not understand why anyone
    would want to do so unless they have committed a theft or have bought a
    barred phone (in which case they should be more careful in future). In the
    UK, IMEI changing is certainly illegal and *could* (although in reality
    probably wouldn't) land you in prison.

    Yep - if you're gonna change the imei, you might as well find a gun and use
    that to steal the damned phone off of somebody, I believe the carry a
    similar sentance but using the gun gives you a bit more cred in prison. :-P

    :-P

    I can quite easily cite many instances of people receiving prison sentences
    for gun-related crime. How many links can you post to legitimate news
    articles regarding people receiving similar-severity sentences for IMEI
    changing?

    Anyone weighing up the pros and cons of changing an IMEI vs owning/using an
    illegal handgun may also wish to consider the likely category of prison that
    they would end up in given the worst-case scenario - the white collar
    criminal seldom tends to receive a higher standard of accomodation from her
    majesty, not to mention a more lenient sentence from the judge.

    GYAFC all of you 'changing IMEI will land you in the nick for 5 years'
    idiots. Your motives may be honourable but your comments are childish in
    the extreme. If people are asking for info, by all means try to dissuade
    them from commiting crimes, but please grow up while you're at it as
    scaremongering is unproductive.

    rant over

    Doh! In all my ranting I mixed up my point... the white collar criminal
    most definitely >regularly< recieves a better standard of accomodation.

    Continue flaming ;-)

    What's the point matey, you obviously know *so* much more than any of us!
    ;-)

    As far as your other points, as far as they go, you are quite correct, and
    comparing IMEI tampering to gun crime is a little on the foolish side.

    As for prosecutions, as the offence is still relatively new, and this
    Country's "fast track" Criminal Justice Joke..... sorry meant System usually
    means approximately 18 months to two years to even bring a case to trial, I
    imagine it'll be some time until we see successful prosecutions where the
    maximum penalties are handed down.

    However, IMEI changing is illegal, and the potential maximum penalties have
    been quoted here quite correctly any number of times. It is only a matter
    of time until someone does receive the maximum prison time, and as for a
    fine, seeing as the maximum penalty is an unlimited amount, use your own
    imagination.

    As with any new law, I would imagine that the first few successful
    convictions will result in the heavier end of the tariffs being used, purely
    to "send a message".

    Just my 2p.
