SIM Card Registration TNT

Now that the SIM Card Registration Act IRR is in force, telcos must verify the identity of their customers to prevent fraudulent identification – this is important for individuals, businesses, and any end-users of telecom services.

TNT Mobile has launched an effort to encourage its subscribers to register their SIM cards before the July 25 deadline, setting up assisted SIM Registration booths across multiple regions.

How to Register

Under the SIM Registration Act, all mobile phone subscribers are required to register their SIM cards within a specified time period or risk having their cards deactivated and will only become functional again upon registration.

Register by visiting any Smart store, calling their hotline (*888 from your Smart Prepaid or TNT Mobile phone, or 02 8888 1111 from any landline), using GigaLife App, or the Smart FB Messenger.

Once there, follow the instructions to fill out a form and provide all of your personal details such as full name, address, date of birth and gender as well as upload a photograph of valid ID. After submitting the form, wait two minutes to receive an OTP which you can verify using your device before receiving confirmation message that your SIM registration was successful.

Requirements for Registration

The SIM Registration TNT Act, Republic Act 11934, was designed to combat scams and cybercrime by protecting all mobile subscribers’ personal data. Prepaid and postpaid subscribers must register their SIMs within 90 days of purchase or activation or risk losing remaining load balance or having their SIM deactivated.

As part of the registration requirements, valid forms of ID such as passports, PhilSys national ID cards and driver’s licenses with clear photographs bearing identification verification must be presented when registering SIM cards for minors. Minors can use their parent or guardian’s ID to register their SIM cards.

SignNow’s electronic signature features help protect the security of your form while you fill it out, including maintaining compliance with ESIGN, UETA and eIDAS – three leading legal frameworks covering electronic signatures – while our SOC 2 Type II and PCI DSS certifications demonstrate our dedication to keeping your data safe.


SIM registration could have serious repercussions for privacy and security in countries lacking adequate data protection laws and oversight, enabling governments to compile comprehensive profiles of citizens using public and private databases as matches.

To protect against such risks, it’s crucial to follow the registration process correctly. Failing to do so could cause your telco to deactivate your SIM card, restricting you from making calls and accessing mobile data – plus any remaining load balance will be forfeited.

To register your SIM, it is necessary to verify your identity online using a digital signature tool such as signNow. With digitally signing documents becoming increasingly commonplace as people ditch traditional office work practices, companies and individuals alike should look for solutions which offer legal validity equivalent to physical signatures such as signNow.


Registration is crucial in ensuring uninterrupted mobile services. Whether using your phone for work or social purposes, registration must take place properly to avoid deactivating your SIM card – which could have serious repercussions for both business and personal data that is essential to you. If the deadline passes without registration taking place properly, deactivation could occur and this could have serious repercussions if not properly registered by then.

As SIM registration deadline draws nearer, telecom companies have made steps to ease the process for subscribers. PLDT’s mobile brand Smart Communications launched an online registration portal which enables postpaid subscribers to review and confirm information submitted during application.

Use of an electronic signature solution like signNow makes the process even simpler, providing you with a digital certificate to attest to the authenticity of your eDocuments, something which is necessary due to legal requirements regarding their legal bindingness. In addition, signNow meets ESIGN, UETA, and eIDAS compliance standards as well.
