CTIA Calls for Mobile Device Theft Prevention Database

CTIA has issued a Request For Proposal (RFP) to create and operate the Mobile Device Information Portal based on the Mobile Device Theft Prevention (MDTP) Working Group's recommendations to the FCC's Technological Advisory Council (TAC).

Using multiple source databases, the Mobile Device Information Portal will provide timely, succinct responses so that consumers and commercial resellers know if a mobile device is reported lost or stolen before they purchase it. In addition, law enforcement will be able to check, and hopefully return, found mobile devices to their authorized users.

By creating a central portal of reported lost and stolen mobile devices, it will help limit the black market resale of these used mobile devices in the United States.

CTIA will oversee the creation and implementation of the Mobile Device Information Portal.

The RFP is available at:
