+ - Brazil blocks foreign mobile phones->

Submitted by fabrica64
fabrica64 (791212) writes "Brazilian government starts today blocking mobile phones not sold in Brazil, i.e. not having paid sales taxes here.
The blocking is based on IMEI and if you come to Brazil for the world cup in june and think of buying a Brazilian SIM card to call locally at lower rates then it won't work because your mobile's IMEI will be blacklisted as not sold in Brazil.
This is not a joke, its true!"
