4160383 story Mexican Government To Document Cell Phone Use 232 Posted by Soulskill on Tuesday April 14, 2009 @10:36PM from the i'm-sure-criminals-will-oblige dept. Alyssey writes "The Mexican government wants to have a database to track every cellphone number in the country (in Spanish, Google translation) and whom it belongs to. They want to tie in the CURP (Unique Registration Population Code in Spanish, like the Social Security Number in the US) with cellphone numbers. If Mexicans don't send in their number and CURP via SMS before April 10, 2010, their cellphone number will be blocked. The new law was published back in February and is going into effect now."
