The initiative is part of Globe Telecom’s goal to reach out to customers, especially senior citizens, PWDs, pregnant women, users of basic phones and those with no internet access to get them compliant with the SIM Registration Act before the April 26, 2023 deadline. 

 

“The National SIM Registration Week is a momentous initiative that will bring together Filipinos across the country to register their SIMs and move us closer to our goal of reducing spam and scam text messages, which is the intent of the SIM Registration Act. It’s a historic moment for Globe as we endeavor to get closer to our customers through online channels and on-site booths. We encourage our customers to be part of this activity. Together let’s keep the online space safe and secure,” said Delgado. 

 

Customers who complete SIM registration during National SIM Registration Week and those who register online are entitled to join an exclusive Globe raffle and win tickets to the highly-anticipated annual outdoor music and arts festival Wanderland and the Arctic Monkeys concert in March. The promo, open to all successful SIM registrants, is open until February 28, 2023.

 

In partnership with the Makati City local government unit, Globe Telecom is also offering Makatizens assisted registration services at the Makati City Hall open parking area from February 20 to 24, 2023. 

 

Globe Telecom is undertaking multiple initiatives to reach its customers for SIM registration. With roughly 86.7 million SIMs under its network and only three months left to register, the Globe Group has tapped its affiliates, subsidiaries, and the full support of the #OneAyalaGroup to drive registrations.

 

Since January, Globe Telecom has deployed assisted registration hubs across 90 remote areas in support of government-led SIM registration assistance. It also partnered with Puregold in holding assisted registration in 30 strategically selected branches and provided assisted registration during the Sinulog festival in Cebu and the Dinagyang festival in Iloilo.

 

Globe Telecom is committed to make SIM registration simple and convenient, and it has implemented various measures to ensure that everyone can meet the April 26 deadline. Aside from the registration booths, Globe Prepaid and TM customers can also conveniently register via the GlobeOne app or by visiting new.globe.com.ph/simreg.

 

For Globe Postpaid and Platinum customers, meanwhile, completing SIM registration takes just one step. As soon as the customer receives the call to register SMS, simply text SIMREG to 8080 to confirm that details earlier submitted to Globe during the postpaid plan application are updated. 

 

The SIM Registration Act requires the registration of all SIMs as a major measure against the proliferation of criminal activity, including smishing and other mobile phone and online scams that have spread due to the anonymity of unregistered SIMs. 

 

Globe Telecom urges all Filipino mobile users to register their SIMs and support the campaign to beat spam and scam text messages and cybercrime. For more information on the SIM registration process and how to register, visit https://www.globe.com.ph/help/sim-registration-act.html.
