MII Takes Measures For Unification Of Wireless Codes

China's Ministry of Information Industry reports it has taken three measures to ensure smooth operation after the unification of the wireless service provider codes went into effect on December 1, 2007.

MII is initiating a telephone number for consumers to make complaints; supervising communications operators, terminal operators and service providers; and asking related enterprises to launch a special area on their corporate websites to further detail their programs and how they plan to comply.

As required by MII, a new short message service access code prefixed with 106 was initiated on December 1 to which all the short message service codes of the four major telecom operators of China Mobile, China Unicom, China Telecom and China Netcom were connected. MII says that unifying of the code will help strengthen the management on service providers, which previously often caused problems for consumers by sending mobile spam and not deactivating paid services when consumers asked to end those services.
