Re: Should also reduce fraud..
Actually it is open to everyone, before you buy the phone get the IMEI and call the provider you wish to activate it with. Do you not check the carfax when you buy a car first?

A large portion of people don't even check ESNs on CDMA phones. Most people don't check IMEI phones on phones they buy.
In the ideal world, people would. In our world.. people don't know the difference between an HTC and an S3 half the time.
