Digicel PNG warns on unregistered SIM Cards

Digicel PNG
Unregistered SIM cards will be deactivated by the end of this month and numbers will not be retrieved after the deadline, Digicel warned yesterday.
SIM is short for subscriber identity module, which describes the small plastic card with metal strips that contains the number and personal details of the user.
“You cannot take any chances, it must be done and it needs to be done right now,” said Digicel PNG vice president Lorna McPherson.
“This is a government directive and we need to take heed of their decision. So come the end of July we will deactivate any SIM cards that are not registered,” Ms McPherson warned.
“To avoid this, it simply takes five minutes of your time to register your SIM at any Digicel outlet today,” she added.
According to Digicel, if your number is deactivated by end of this month, you won’t be able to receive or make calls, send SMS, access your social media accounts, send or receive emails and access your back account if you are on mobile banking. All of these services will disappear if your SIM is deregistered. McPherson adds; “We know the importance of having a working mobile number and we want all of our customers to stay connected. Our teams are here to help and get your SIM registered today.” A Digicel official contacted yesterday afternoon couldn’t confirm on a ‘steep fee’ to apply to register SIMs after the deadline, but said it doesn’t gurantee that deactivated numbers will be reactivated upon request.
