WHAT IS CELL PHONE CLONING?
Cell phone cloning is copying the identity of one mobile telephone to another mobile telephone.
The purpose of cell phone cloning is making fraudulent telephone calls.
The bills for the calls go to the legitimate subscriber.
The cloner is also able to make effectively anonymous calls , which attracts another group of interested users.
WHEN DID CELL CLONING START?
Cell phone cloning started with Motorola “bag” phones and reached its peak in the mid 90’s with a commonly available modification for the Motorola “brick” phones , such as the classic , the Ultra Classic, and the Model 8000.
The Cellular telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) estimates that financial losses in due to cloning fraud are between $600 million and $900 million in the United States . Some subscribers of Reliance had to suffer because their phone was cloned . Mobile Cloning is in initial stages in India so preventive steps should be taken by the network provider and the Government.

HOW IS CELL CLONING DONE?
Cloning involved modifying or replacing the EPROM in the phone with a new chip which allow you to configure an ESN (Electronic Serial number) via software.
You should also have to change the MIN (Mobile identification Number)
When you had successfully changed the ESN/MIN pair, your phone was an effective clone of the other phone.
Presently the cellular phone industry relies on common law (fraud and theft) and in house counter measures to address cellular phone fraud.
Mobile Cloning is in initial stages in India so preventive steps should be taken by the network provider and Government.
The enactment of legislation to prosecute crimes related to cellular phones is not viewed as a priority.
However . It is essential that intended mobile crime legislation be comprehensive enough to incorporate cellular phone fraud , in particular “cloning fraud” as a specific crime.
