As the April 26 deadline for SIM registration draws closer, local telcos are reminding their subscribers to register their SIMs and help prevent mobile phone-aided criminal activities.

Through its ‘Mag-SIM Reg para hindi SIM Dead’ campaign, Smart reminds customers to register their SIM and warns them about the hassles the come with failing to register one’s SIM:

A deactivated or dead SIM means you can’t make or receive calls and messages, and connect to the internet. It also means forfeited load balances. 

SIM dead also means you won’t be able to access all the apps linked to your mobile number like your social media apps, messaging apps, and delivery apps, or recover a forgotten password linked to your mobile number.

To make the process more convenient and accessible to as many Filipinos as possible, Smart has spent the past few months rolling out assisted SIM Registration booths at malls nationwide, far-flung municipalities, and key remote areas.

You can also do it from the comforts of your home through the following:

  • Smart Prepaid or TNT: Visit smart.com.ph/simreg or log into the GigaLife App to register your SIM.
  • Smart Postpaid: Confirm the personal information and IDs you previously submitted for your postpaid plan application by texting YES to 5858, and wait for the confirmation message from Smart.
  • Smart Bro: Access your one-time password by following these steps

Globe Stores and EasyHubs

Meanwhile, Globe Stores and Easy Hubs across the country are ready to provide assistance to customers who may need help in registering their SIMs. 

Cleo Santos, Head of Globe Channel Marketing Group, said 147 Globe stores and 25 Easy Hubs in various locations around the country are open to mobile and broadband customers. 

This effort is on top of 24/7 registration via Globe’s SIM registration website and the GlobeOne app. Globe earlier launched National SIM Registration Week, an initiative to roll out over 500 SIM Registration Assistance Desks across the country, including remote areas and places known to have high concentration of users of basic phones. 

To facilitate the registration of more customers, especially in remote areas, Globe has participated in several rounds of on-ground SIM Registration Assistance led by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC). 

It has also partnered with local government units, groceries, and malls in putting up assisted registration booths in more than 100 sites nationwide, and held on-site assistance in major festivals.

Aside from the registration booths, Globe Prepaid and TM customers can also conveniently register via the GlobeOne app or by visiting new.globe.com.ph/simreg.

For Globe Postpaid and Platinum customers, meanwhile, completing SIM registration takes just one step. As soon as the customer receives the call to register SMS, simply text SIMREG to 8080 to confirm that details earlier submitted to Globe during the postpaid plan application are updated.
