I don't see what the problem is with having to register your phone? How many phones do people go through every year? People have to register to drive cars on the roads - because roads are a public infrastructure. Cell phone use is the same thing because you're connecting to cell-towers to make calls - and those towers are protected by the government.

Cell towers are owned, operated and maintained by privite companies.  The only thing the goverment does is regulate what the companies can or can't do in accordance to laws.

Exactly why I don't own or even want a cell phone.  Even if I did, I wouldn't register. Governments can kiss my hairy arse.

i wouldnt like having to register just to use a throwaway phone, but almost 5500 people died in 2008 in the mexican drug war.  i think thats a good enough reason to shut off some cell phones.

In Canada I've had to register every cell phone I've had, regardless if on a contract or a pay-as-you-go.

  Don't recall seeing disposible handsets either? 

Anyone seen a cell phone in Canada that is not registered with a person's name ?

Are you implying our phones are registered with the government? I assure you mine is not, so you're wrong.

If you're not doing anything wrong, you shouldn't have a problem with this.

Isn't that the RIAA/MPAA's byline?

It really doesn't matter.  The question is do Mexican citizens want this?  If not, the Mexican government has failed their people on this account.

It's commendable that the Mexican government realizes and admits that they have a problem.  It's really nice that they'd like to do something about it.

But this is going about it in such a terribly WRONG way.

I highly doubt that this will produce any results beyond pissing off the citizens.

that's same thing governments say when they revoke the rights of the accused
