Once the message is sent, you will get the return message and be notified whether your phone IMEI is in the database or not. However, only the IMEI number of imported and produced phones in 2018 or later will be found in this database. Those who bought the phone before this date will not close.
How to Original Mobile Check by IMEI Number
Most people have bought the phone before 2018. You can check if the phone you purchased is genuine or not. If the phone purchased before 2018 is original, then your mobile will not be closed whether it is in the BTRC database or not.

Will the Phone Actually Be Closed if Brought from Abroad?
If you buy a phone from abroad, it will not get closed. According to the law, a Bangladeshi citizen can bring two new phones from abroad without tax. So if you buy a phone from overseas you can get IMEI registration on the port. As a result, your imported mobile set will be legalized. However, you must show all documents related to phone purchase for IMEI registration at the port.
There is nothing to fear after the BTRC declaration. You can easily check if your phone is valid or not. Apart from this, there is also an arrangement for registration if you bring your mobile from any foreign country.
