Smart Communications has registered over 7 million Smart and TNT SIM cards in the first 10 days of SIM Registration.
On December 27, 2022, Smart launched its SIM Registration portal, allowing hundreds of thousands of Smart and TNT customers to conveniently register their prepaid and postpaid SIM cards as mandated by the SIM Registration Act. The measure, RA 11934, aims to curb the proliferation of text scams and other mobile phone-aided criminal activities.
Smart and TNT also set up assisted SIM Registration booths and touchpoints across the country to help facilitate SIM Registration for subscribers needing assistance. In collaboration with LGUs, partner stores, and regional and provincial distributors, Smart was the first telco to set up assisted SIM registration booths in several areas in Luzon, Iloilo, Cebu, and the Davao Region.

Alongside their support for SIM registration, PLDT and Smart’s long-standing consumer protection initiatives include blocking SIMs that send smishing messages and Uniform Resource Locators (URL) or links that lead to illegal activities, to help safeguard the public against cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and other online criminal activities.
