Actually, not all of those Chinese made phones are of bad quality.
A neighbour of mine, having worked in China for many years, showed me his collection of Chinese phones. One that he showed me is really the best quality phone I have ever seen. It is not a smartphone though but an extremely classy, elegant phone with superb materials. He told me that it is a limited edition phone.
So, hardware wise, they know how to make good quality phones if you're willing to pay for it. Also, don't forget all iPhones are made in China.

Just to clarify:
1) In India all sim cards whether on billing or pay as you go require ID proof before they are activated. You cannot pick them up off the shelf and use them.
2) IMEI numbers can be used to trace the phones location whenever it is used. That is why phones without IMEI are now banned in India.
3) Terrorism is rampant in our side of the world. Maybe in the US or Europe you may not see it on a daily basis. However here we have to be constantly alert.
4) No system is foolproof, however at least the govt has to try and close as many security holes as possible.

I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.

Even if it could be done it stops people just buying phones and using them - keep an eye out in your local small adds for 'Terrorist group seeks experienced IMEI changer, no salary but rewards in heaven'He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
