Still haven’t registered your SIM yet? Now would be a really good time to do so.
What happens if you don’t register your SIM before April 26, 2023? Well, you can kiss your SIM, OTPs, and SIM-related transactions goodbye.
The PLDT wireless subsidiary Smart Communications, Inc. recently increased and intensified its call for Smart Users to register their SIM. Smart warns that those who fail to register their SIM will result in SIM deactivation or ‘SIM dead’.
Avoid SIM-dead hassles and Register Today
Still not convinced to register your SIM? Let these SIM-dead hassles persuade you.
SIM dead or if one’s SIM gets deactivated, they will no longer receive outgoing and incoming calls, no sending and receiving messages, no internet access, and loss of load balances.
That’s not all; with SIM dead, users won’t be able to receive one-time passwords for their banking apps or mobile wallets. This means that users will lose access to their e-wallets and online savings accounts.
But wait, there’s more. With SIM dead, users will no longer have access to any apps linked to their mobile numbers, such as social media apps, messaging apps, and even delivery apps. In addition, if you use your phone number to recover forgotten passwords, with SIM Dead, you won’t be able to recover it using the mobile number linked to your account.
According to Francis E. Flores, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business -– Individual at Smart, “Our smartphone has become an extension of ourselves, and failing to register our SIM will cut us off from the many technological conveniences that enable us to love more today.”
Flores encourages everyone to register their Smart and TNT SIMs before April 26, 2023.
