A subscriber tuple in the DAP contains differ- ent elements and most of them can be changed by the DAP operator using a Change command. The IMEI element can not be changed using the Change command. The only way to do so is by deleting the entire tuple in the DAP and re-entering the same elements associated with this IMEI only with a new IMEI. When doing so, the operator can reuse the IMSI associated with the deleted IMEI tuple. Ifthe IMSI is reused, it is possible that two radios will contain the same IMSI.
