Smart launched its SIM Registration portal on December 27, 2022, at http://www.smart.com.ph/simreg.

The platform quickly enabled hundreds of thousands of Smart and TNT customers to register their prepaid and postpaid SIMs as stipulated by the SIM Registration Act, which aims to restrict the spread of text scams and other mobile phone-assisted criminal acts.

Smart and TNT also swiftly established assisted SIM Registration booths and touchpoints across the nation to simplify SIM Registration for all subscribers who require assistance.

Smart was the first telecommunications company to establish assisted SIM registration booths in many areas of Luzon, Iloilo, Cebu, and the Davao Region in partnership with local government units, partner retailers, and regional and provincial distributors.

Smart Prepaid and TNT members can register their SIM cards and receive 3 GB of FREE data by following the procedures below:
  1. Visit http://www.smart.com.ph/simreg
  2. Enter your details and upload a valid ID
  3. Await an SMS confirmation and receive 3 GB of FREE Data

Smart's SIM registration portal employs optical character recognition (OCR), a technique mandated by law for efficiently collecting and safeguarding subscribers' personal information during the registration process.

  • Smart also makes SIM Registration accessible to subscribers via the following additional channels:
  • Smart Stores nationwide
  • Smart Hotlines (dial *888 via Smart/TNT mobile, or 8888-1111 via landline)
  • Smart Facebook Messenger Chatbot
  • Smart GigaLife App (downloadable on the App Store and Google Play Store)

In contrast, in accordance with the law, Smart is making SIM Registration more straightforward for postpaid users, who need only validate the personal information and identification documents they submitted with their application for a postpaid plan. To confirm their subscription, users need only text YES to 5858. Smart will then send them a confirmation message upon successful SIM Registration.

Smart Bro subscribers must visit www.smart.com.ph/viewbroadbandsms for instructions on how to view their One-Time Password in order to register the SIM card installed into their WiFi device (OTP).

Alongside their support for SIM registration, PLDT and Smart's longstanding consumer protection initiatives include blocking SIMs that send'smishing' messages and Uniform Resource Locators (URL) or links that lead to illegal activities to protect the public from emerging cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and other online criminal activities.
