Step-by-Step Instructions for Registering Your Smart and TNT SIM Online
"""The SIM Registration Law has come into effect. The new law requires all mobile subscribers to register their SIM cards with their respective telecommunications provider (such as Smart) and to provide their personal information during the process, lauded by many as the ultimate solution to the age-old issue of text scams, spam, and the like. ,'_com-box-3','ezslot_3',183,'0','0'_('div-gpt-ad-_com-box-3-0');
Your telco's services can be accessed through your Subscriber Identity Module (SIM). You will be able to, among other things, make calls, send text messages, access the Internet, purchase airtime credits, and activate the SIM by inserting it into your mobile device.
A SIM card can basically be purchased by anyone for a small fee. Neither registration forms nor identification cards need to be presented at the time of purchase. That is about to change thanks to the SIM Registration Law, which mandates that all Filipinos register their new or existing SIM cards or face having their SIMs permanently disabled. ,'_com-medrectangle-3','ezslot_6',191,'0','0'_('div-gpt-ad-_com-medrectangle-3-0');
Scammers, spammers, and other shady people will have a harder time carrying out their evil deeds now that the SIM Registration Law is in effect. Since a person's SIM is linked to their identity, malicious individuals will think twice before buying SIM cards and using them for illegal activities.
