It happened due to policy of central government that would block illegal mobile phones (Black Market, BM) based on the identification of IMEI number.
Tribunbatam.id monitoring at Batam cellphone center, Lucky Plaza Nagoya Batam, hundreds of cellphone outlets look quiet.
There were only one and two visitors who came to buy cellphone.
"Sometimes it's quiet, sometimes it's busy, selling only sells one even in a day, ”said cellphone seller at Oppo's mobile booth, Lucky Plaza, Friday (10/18/2019).
That is different from few months ago, usually they have lot of sales, he said.
Is that due to policy of blocking IMEI cellphones, this cellphone seller claimed that since the existence of that regulation information some time ago, it made people visit to cellphone center even less.
People who are generally looking for black market phones at lower prices, are no longer easy to find in Lucky Plaza.
