PTA Launches A System To Permanently Block Snatched/ Smuggled Mobile Phones


Sumera Saeed | December 5, 2017 | category: Mobile Phones

PTA Launches A System To Permanently Block Snatched/ Smuggled Mobile Phones. There is a good news for them whose mobile phones have been snatched or stolen. Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has taken a step forward and launched a new system called Device Identification, Registration and Blocking System (DIRBS) in order to permanently block the snatched and smuggled mobile phones in the country.

The Device Identification, Registration and Blocking System (DIRBS) by PTA will essentially remove any illegal, snatched and smuggled mobile phones and devices in Pakistan.

PTA has declared the Device Identification, Registration and Blocking System (DIRBS) back in September and guaranteed that this system will permanently block the import and trade of non-compliant mobile phones in the country.

How Device Identification, Registration and Blocking System Works?

PTA said that the Device Identification, Registration and Blocking System (DIRBS)  is capable of detecting the non-compliant mobile phones’ IMEI numbers of the handset will be used, while other mobile identifying tools will also be applied. Once non-compliant mobile phones are found and detected by cellular operators, they will be black-listed and won’t work with any mobile network in Pakistan. These snatched and smuggled mobile phones will be blocked after detection permanently.

How to check mobile phone IMEI Number?

IMEI number comes with all mobile phone allocated by GSMA across the world. It’s in fact an identity number of your mobile phone. I am using a Samsung device and its IMEI number is printed at the back where phone battery placed. The IMEI number also presents on the box of the device.

You can also check and confirm the IMEI number of your mobile phone by checking it on box and mobile phones.

You can also check the IMEI number of your mobile phones by dialing the *#06# on the mobile phones.

Now You Can Get Back Snatched or Stolen Mobile Phones

Before the launch of Device Identification, Registration and Blocking System, PTA will offer a Device Verification System (DVS) for the public that will be available through the DIRBS website/mobile app or through SMS to check the validity of the mobile phone.

The Device Identification, Registration and Blocking System (DIRBS) by PTA is a good initiative and will be very useful for the public which is facing lots of problems owing to the unavailability of an competent system to thwart criminal activities involving mobile phones.

One of the renowned smartphone selling brands in Pakistan, QMobile is selling the phones without IMEI numbers, reported 92 News. According to a report QMobile is importing sub-standard mobile phones from China and selling in Pakistan without International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) numbers.

QMobile that spends massively on its advertisement is fooling the customers with sub standard smartphones and the missing IMEI number increases risks of anonymous use them.

An IMEI number for the phone is extremely essential in order to trace or block any smartphone. It’s a unique number attached to all smartphones and its absence as in the case of QMobile develops security dangers.

However the company has not yet responded to these allegations.

Experiencing True Online Shopping in Pakistan

Experiencing True Online Shopping in Pakistan


Ozair Akhtar | December 26, 2016 | category: News

A decade ago, online shopping in Pakistan was almost non-existent. It was something only found on international shopping platforms. The growth in the e-commerce industry has changed shopping trends in Pakistan. As people’s interest grew towards online shopping, new stores kept popping up. Where there was little or no sign of online stores in Pakistan offering only limited number of products and delivery was only available in major parts of the country, the current scenario is completely opposite.

The Face of Online Shopping in Pakistan

Easy shopping opened doors to various markets. E-commerce presented an opportunity to these markets and a chance for many entrepreneurs to set up virtual stores. After a few online stores surfaced, the business of e-commerce became more of a trend. Everything from Dell laptops to Samsung mobile phones, clothes, delivery services to online food service, everything is now available online. The local online stores are now maturing into go-to places for people to get what they want in just a few clicks. Gone are the days when going to an actual mall or store seemed like a tedious task. Now one can shop at the comfort of one’s home with just a few clicks.

Online Shopping in Pakistan with Payment on Delivery as Option

Online stores where people often perform online shopping in Pakistan are now mature enough to offer sales and amazing discounts that are hard to miss. It’s almost impossible to disagree that online sales are way better than the ones we find on conventional retail stores and malls. As more online stores are opening, the competition is getting intense. Everyone is striving to offer the best deal to the customers.

All the products are economically priced that you can’t help but end up buying the products. These discounts and deals are beneficial for everyone who seek to buy stuff from mobiles, laptops, clothes, makeup, electronics, home appliances and much more.

Online Stores – The Best Place to Buy Mobile Phones

Since, there is a lot of competition now the e-commerce market has become very interesting. Mobile phone prices in Pakistan varies from one online store to another. Looking and comparing specs and features was one thing that we all used to do. Now, we don’t just buy a cell phone without comparing the price from a number of stores. Once, you are satisfied with the features, specs and price, that’s when you check out. Add in a discount deal and you get the best package which is impossible to get on an actual store. So, the perks of online shopping are endless.

Online Shopping in Pakistan with Cash on Delivery

It’s true you can’t bargain on a price of mobile phone while purchasing it online, but other benefits of online shopping like convenience, time saving and above all the sales and discounts cancel out the fact that you can’t bargain on mobile prices or let alone any other product.

Laptop Deals Online

After mobile phones, the next big thing that can be listed in the best sellers on an online store are laptops. From Dell to hp laptops, all kinds of old and new models are sold. You can always find something that suits your budget and fulfill your brand preference as well. Compare laptop prices in Pakistan, find best colors, specs, and features, it’s all about convenience and getting the best deal on laptops.

Most Common Problems Pakistanis Likely To Face on Black Friday 2016

Most Common Problems Pakistanis Likely To Face on Black Friday 2016

Most Common Problems Pakistanis Likely To Face on Black Friday 2016

During the last 50 years, Black Friday has emerged as one of the world’s biggest shopping event that churns out benefits for both the consumers and the retail sector.

Following the emergence of the internet, Walmart was the first store to introduce Black Friday Deals online. Since then, numerous other ecommerce stores around the globe have started following these trends.

With so much hype about it in the global communities, how could Pakistan be left behind? That’s why last year, Rocket Internet brought it to Pakistan through its platform Daraz.pk. As expected, this year, more than 20 other online shopping stores of Pakistan have jumped the bandwagon to provide Black Friday deals and discounts to all online shoppers.

At one end, it is impressive to see so many stores providing humongous discounts on Black Friday. On the other, there are a few blemishes and complexities created by it. This includes:

  1. Price Verification Problem:

Prices of products vary from store to store so it becomes harder to determine which store is offering the lowest price. A consumer is left with two options: either to spend a couple of hours searching the product on different online shopping stores or to buy it immediately at whatever price the store is charging. In the first case, time is wasted but money is saved. In the second case, time is saved but the money is wasted.

Price comparison websites ease this burden by providing a comprehensive list of prices for a product on a single page so the consumer can save both time and money.

One such website, Priceblaze.pk, offers price comparison for mobile phones from more than 10 online shopping stores. Not only this, the website also shows a comparison on deals & discounts as well as coupon codes for cashback from its partner stores. It is an eminent feature for Black Friday 2016 shopping in Pakistan, which is lacking in other shopping comparison websites.

  1. Ratings of Online Shopping Stores:

Understanding the ratings of online shopping stores is a complicated task. Let’s take the example of top stores such as Yayvo and Daraz. Daraz is said to have some of the finest products; however, there have been quite a few complaints about their delivery process. Yayvo, on the other hand, is totally the opposite of this.

To determine the ratings of online shopping stores, users need to visit their Facebook pages and read what other online shoppers are saying about them. They can also go to a comparison shopping website to find these.

  1. Reviews about the Quality of a Product:

What is the quality of the product shipped to you? Last year, post-black Friday, many users complained that the products they received were either of poor quality or had defects.

The representatives of online shopping stores continuously reassured that they delivered good quality products but the consumers thought otherwise. So it’s always better to ask other shoppers about it.

These users are available on Facebook groups, price comparison websites and even on the shopping store’s social page. Shoppers who have had bad experiences are eager to tell their stories. By checking the ratings, users know if the product will serve the purpose.

These are just some of the problems people face on Black Friday in Pakistan.

This year, Priceblaze.pk has tried to minimize the problems faced by shoppers looking for Black Friday Deals. It has introduced a Black Friday Bazaar where products are listed from all top online shopping stores, including Daraz, Yayvo, 24Hours and others. Instead of visiting each shop, users can directly visit the Black Friday 2016 Deals on this website to compare prices, read reviews and ratings and to shop from stores they feel have moderate prices. It doesn’t just save money but also saves your time!

There are multitudes of problems online shoppers face on a daily basis. Want to get your voice heard? Please comment below or send us a message on our Facebook page.
