Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) recently joined hands with TGP (The Generics Pharmacy) to strengthen its push for SIM registration in Davao City.
Joining TGP’s recent Kaibigan sa Kalusugan Medical Caravan at the Matina Crossing and Matina Aplaya Gymnasium, Smart set up SIM registration booths to provide assistance to Smart and TNT customers in the area.
“Our commitment to bring our SIM registration efforts closer to our customers remains strong. We are grateful for partners like TGP for enabling us to us deploy SIM registration booths during their own events. This kind of partnership allows us to reach our customers and assist them in registering their Smart and TNT SIMs, especially senior citizens, persons with disabilities, and those using non-data phones,” said Alex O. Caeg, Senior Vice President and Head of Consumer Sales Group at PLDT and Smart.
“We are glad to be of help to our partner Smart in their initiative to assist Filipinos in SIM registration nationwide. We understand that SIM registration can help our customers keep their connectivity active, allowing them to access the necessary platforms for their health and well-being. This TGP Medical Caravan which reached hundreds and hundreds of patients and customers is a good platform to reach out to our kababayans,” said Joanne Dawn S. Arceo, General Manager at TGP.
Smart has rolled out thousands of assisted SIM registration booths across the country, extending priority assistance to senior citizens and persons with disabilities, in collaboration with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), LGUs, malls, schools, and other community partners.
New and existing Smart Prepaid and TNT subscribers may also visit PLDT and Smart stores, or access Smart’s SIM registration portal through https://simreg.smart.com.ph/. Postpaid users, meanwhile, are considered registered using existing account details provided consistent with the SIM Registration Act.
All SIM users are required to register their SIMs by July 25, 2023, according to Republic Act No. 11934 or the Subscriber Identity Module Registration Act.
