پاکستان ٹیلی کمیونیکیشن اتھارٹی کے اعلان کے مطابق وہ تمام موبائل فون جو پاکستانی نیٹ ورکس  پر 15 جنوری سے پہلے استعمال میں ہونگے ان کو بلاک نہیں کیا جاۓ گا۔

All mobile devices which are already activated on cellular mobile networks within Pakistan by January 15, 2019 shall remain operational without service disruption.

The decision has been made in accordance with the directives issued by the federal government related to the extension in deadline for registration of mobile devices under Pakistan Telecommunication Authority’s Device Identification Registration Blocking System (DIRBS).

      You have to register new mobile phone at mobile phone office and pay tax if you want to leave it in Pakistan. If you want to take it back and your stay in Pakistan is not more than 60 days then you can use it without registration.
