China Mobile, the world’s largest operator by volume of subscribers is also the only operator in China that doesn’t offer iPhones or iPads for sale. The primary reason why China Mobile doesn’t offer Apple products is due to the company’s homegrown TD-SCDMA technology for 3G, which is an exclusive standard for the operator, for which most companies produce custom radios in their phones. But this might change soon, with Reuters reporting that Apple’s CEO Tim Cook is in talks with China Mobile’s Chairman Xi Guohua, for a possible cooperation between the two giants.
China Mobile, the world’s largest telecom carrier with over 660 million subscribers, has agreed to launch the Nokia Lumia 920 on its network. Nokia revealed that its flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone will be available on the Chinese operator. The phone will support the TD-SCDMA infrastructure used in China.

The DOT of Department of Telecom has asked all Operators to ban handsets without a legitimate IMEI number on January 6th.
This directive comes as a fight against terror as these handsets are being used by terrorists as they do not have an IMEI number in them.There are as many as 25 million unbranded handsets imported from China and Korea that are believed to be on the knife’s edge.
They have asked operators to block mobiles with fake IMEI numbers like all zeroes .
The Indian Government has postponed the previous deadline for Operators from 6th January 2009 to March 31 2009.
So be careful when purchasing these Chinese or other imported handsets ..
Nokia has thrown out an innovative ad campaign in the Mumbai Mirror Newspaper. It is against piracy and the highly ridiculed China Mobile or Korean sets as we call them dearly in the south.The ad is nice and gives a crisp idea that these fake mobiles don’t have IMEI number and hence they help terrorism in a very easy way as calls made using them cannot be traced.
View the pictures and see how true and nice the campaign is.
