DITO opens SIM registration to subscribers

In support of the government’s fight against online and mobile phone security threats, DITO Telecommunity reminds its subscribers and potential customers to register their Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards starting today, Dec. 27, 2022. Subscribers who successfully register their SIM cards will receive 2GB bonus data.

Following the implementing rules and regulations of Republic Act 11934 or SIM Registration Act, DITO’s convenient SIM registration process aims to give customers greater protection against SIM card-related criminal activities such as online scams, personalized text scams, smishing, fraud cases, fake news, and identity theft.

All new and existing mobile phone users are required to register their SIM cards. New DITO subscribers must register to activate their SIM cards, while existing prepaid and postpaid users will be given 180 days or six months from the effectivity of the law to register their SIM cards.

Failure to register will result in the deactivation of the SIM and possible penalties. A deactivated SIM will be given a 5-day grace period to be registered and get reactivated.

The online registration will be free of charge and will require customers to provide their personal information (Full Name, Date of Birth, Sex, Present/Official Address) and a government-issued identification card (ID). Minors shall register under their parent/legal guardian’s name along with any government-issued ID of the parent or guardian, and the consent of the minor’s parent or guardian to register the SIM. Multiple SIM cards can be registered under one name.

Businesses that will register a SIM card must submit additional requirements such as their Securities and Exchange Commission Certificate of Registration, Board Resolution designating the authorized representative and other juridical entities, and Special Power of Attorney. Meanwhile, a tourist or foreign national who will use a DITO SIM must submit a passport, proof of address in the Philippines, and a return ticket to own country showing date/time of departure from the Philippines.

New subscribers can register their SIM card via the SMS link they will receive after SIM card insertion. Existing subscribers are required to download and access the DITO App and click the registration banner.
