What is "illegal" in it? As I know in many countries (except the UK) it
is really legal.
But I think that the law such exists in the UK break the main human
rights (such as privacy), am I wrong?
P.S. I ask that question because it is interesting to me to creat a
system which will possible to change IMEI "on-the-fly" when I incert in
my phone another SIM-card, for protecting privacy and against
governmental spying after citizens.
