DICT Spokesperson and Undersecretary Anna Mae Yu Lamentillo said that Secretary Ivan John Uy hopes that more will register their SIMs already and avoid last-minute registration.


“We want to remind the public to register early because all unregistered SIMs will be deactivated once the registration period ends on April 26, 2023. We are also working on the rollout of SIM registration for geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas (GIDAs) so that we can finish all registration within the said period,” said Lamentillo.

As of January 11, SIM Registration has been completed for 10.47% of the 169 million subscribers nationwide, with 17,698,340 registered.

Smart Communications Inc. reported a total of 8,367,752 SIMs registered, which is 12.31% of Smart’s 67,995,734 subscribers. Globe Telecom Inc. recorded 7,764,786 SIMs registered — 8.84% of its 87,873,936 subscribers. Meanwhile, DITO Telecommunity Corp. reported a total of 1,565,802 SIMs registered, which is 11.95% of its 13,108,103 subscribers.

Globe Telecom Inc. also reported that its operations for SIM registration have yielded 99.7% success rate, with 7,764,786 cumulative successful registrations as of 11 January 2023. Globe, along with the rest of the country’s PTEs, are continuously addressing user-related and system concerns to secure a seamless and convenient registration experience for the end-users.

The SIM Card Registration Law became effective last December 27.
