Sri Lanka requires mobile users to carry proof of ownership

The Sri Lankan government is introducing new security legislation that will require mobile phone users to carry a certificate of ownership and will prevent them them from using phones belonging to other people. The country's Telecommunication Regulatory Authority said users would have to carry a letter from their mobile phone provider confirming the person carrying the phone is the owner of the SIM card. In addition, customers using CDMA technology - which is sold in Sri Lanka as a home telephone service, although it can be used wirelessly - will be restricted to using their phones at their registered address.
