GLOBE THANKS the government for granting SIM users the 90-day extension to register their SIMs. This gave our customers more time to finish their SIM registration and allowed us to ensure that we covered as many SIM users as we could through various initiatives.
Since the government announced the deadline extension in April, we have been able to deploy new modes to make SIM registration more convenient, including optimizing GCash for the registration of verified users and the rollout of more SIM registration assistance desks across the country to support customers experiencing challenges in registering their SIMs.
We believe SIM users have been given enough time– from December 27, 2022 to July 25, 2023, or a total of 211 days– to register their SIMs. As of July 15, Globe has logged over 47.14 million registered SIMs.
We encourage our customers who have yet to comply with the SIM Registration Act to use the remaining days until the July 25 deadline to register their SIMs as the law is meant to protect them from fraud and other cybercrime. Failure to register will lead to the deactivation of their SIMs, and they won’t be able to access mobile services for everyday needs.
Globe has several platforms for SIM Registration. Globe Prepaid, TM and Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi customers may use the GlobeOne app and Globe’s SIM registration microsite https://new.globe.com.ph/simreg, which are available 24/7.
Those who have fully-verified GCash accounts may also register via the GCash app. Until July 19, selected Globe subscribers will receive a notification inviting them to register their SIMs by texting “GCASH” followed by their birthday in “mmddyy” format to 8080. Upon successful registration, customers will receive an acknowledgment text message within a few days.
Globe Postpaid, Globe Business Postpaid and Globe Platinum subscribers have already been included in the SIM registration database. For company-owned Globe Business prepaid accounts, steps to register or update details have been sent to authorized company representatives.
