    Here in india since 2014, to get a simcard, the point of sale has to do a KYC verification (know your client). You need 2 valid ids with address proof. For a foreign citizen like me, i had to submit my phil passport, indian visa, globe billing statement to show my address proof in manila and my marriage certificate. I have to update this every 2 years

    the problem is only 180days to implement all and ask all sim to register? their so called secure database can handle all the input?
    looks like a super computer on Google to do the job for them,
    lets see after 180 days, how they deactivate all the sims that are unregistered,

    also the super sim collectors that has hundreds of vanity number sims, how many days for them to register their sims? hehe

    I am curious how this will work. As a tourist your SIM will only be valid for 30 days.
    I have a Smart SIM for about 10 years now with the same number. So I will not be able to register it? I have a PH Passport as Dual Citizenship but no PH Home Address as I am not living in PH permanently.
    I hope there will be a way to retain my number. I also have it in use for my fully verified Gcash.

    I think registration is a good thing but I think it will end the same as like in Thailand. Many little stores are selling pre registered SIM Card which are registered to someone already.

    postpaid numbers are registered already I think so nothing needs to be done on the subscriber's part, right?

    I'm expecting our telcos to ask us to sign a waiver that our info will be shared outside the company.

    I already see chaos. site crashes, server crashing, personal data leakage everywhere, now they even have your address and other info instead of name only, GCash database leaked, wonder how they can secure our info,
    how about those still using bar phone with text and call only? they want them to waste time lining up in their stores?
    may be they can do it in a day? month? year? extended forever?
    new sim is deactivated and need activation after registration to telco? how can they activate their sim with an deactivated sim? and wait for telco to activate it? when? after they are gone? hehe... lol

    As a postpaid subscriber, I already gave all my pertinent information to the telco provider. I hope they don't bother me with this anymore.

    curious about this as well and I will contact the provider as well. they have our information right from the get-go, so i'm guessing we won't have to personally do this anymore because our SIM cards are already registered because we have post-paid accounts
