A member of the PSNI, an old friend, told me this week of widespread mobile tapping using the IMEI number. The numbers after the forward slash
corresponds with the times of tapping..can anyone enlighten me further? Most searches explain these additions as checksum numbers..
Is mister policeman telling porkies or has he been misinformed ?

your IMEI number should visible then look for the magic number after the forward slash
let me know what your number is after the forward slash.... why?.... I'm nosey
10 of my buddies had 0
2 of my buddies had 1
I had 5
not really a big problem for me I tend to lose phones every few months, I am sure my conversations are as interesting as watching paint dry and may
in fact have been about paint drying.
