Mobile Users to Visit Customer Centres for Data Correction

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has advised the mobile phone subscribers to visit Customer Service Centers (CSC) of concerned mobile operator to get their SIM data corrected if there is any discrepancy in their antecedents.

PTA has requested subscribers’ cooperation in streamlining of SIMs data to achieve target of 100% corrected data. In this regard, PTA has also directed cellular mobile operators to take all possible measures for the verifications of post and prepaid mobile connections of their subscribers within specified time period through “SIM information System 668”.

PTA introduced “SIM Information System 668” for the verification and correction of mobile SIMs data. Through this service subscriber can send his CNIC to 668 through SMS and in return he would receive detail of total SIMs against his CNIC alongwith name of the mobile company.

In case there is any discrepancy, the user would visit CSC alongwith original CNIC to get the data corrected. The SIMs not corrected would be blocked after May 17, 2011. This is part of PTA efforts to block all illegal SIMs and clean the data of mobile users.

PTA has launched this service to facilitate mobile users and to get their data corrected. Without the cooperation of mobile subscribers the benefits of this service can not be achieved at desired level.

PTA during last three years has launched number of campaigns through print and electronic media for the awareness of mobile users on this issue and it is still engaged in such activities.  During the 3rd phase of this campaign, mobile subscribers have shown great interest in having their SIM data corrected through 668 and operators are getting encouraging response.

  • Munaeem

    Telenor is only company that has placed a good system. They give you a formed signed and sealed by their staff. Ufone lies. Mobilink makes promise to delete.

  • shariq

    I really don’t understand what do they mean by,”The SIMs not corrected would be blocked after May 17, 2011.”

    What does sim not corrected means ?

    criteria for sims to be blocked is not clear at all :s

  • Zain

    please guys let me know one thing that I am under-18 which means no NIC card so my two personal numbers (telenor and Warid) are registered on my mother’s CNIC and my mothers own SIM card is registered on her CNIC so by 17 may will my sim card be blocked as Once I read –> One sim per one cnic so if I am under-18 what could I do ? Kindly respond immediately,

    • SIM blocking saga :)

      Better ask His highness Mr. Rehman Malik!!

    • Omer

      One SIM per CNIC, isn’t happening.

      • Omer

        At least not now, thankfully.

    all of you who have more than the known number of sims registered under their name should get it corrected.
    Cellular Companies registered all unregistered sims on other peoples cnic (remember when pta blocked a numerous number of unregistered sims a few years back)
    Companies did so, because such numerous blocking of sims decreased their revenue…
    My point…there may be sims registered with your name but not in your knowledge, so try to get them corrected.

  • jazz packages boht ache hain

  • I think PTA is doing good work to stop the crime rate as well as to give reliable service to customer.

  • hameed

    i think it is not 100% possible

  • Salman78

    Exactly what is the interest / benefit of a common person in all this hassle? Say what motivation are they giving to common man to act for their data accuracy?

    Say after correction / deletion of illegal Sims on one’s name, next day one sim is issued on that cnic by any mobile service provider, and is used for illegal purpose, law enforcing agency will contact the cnic holder and he will say on this date I asked the phone company to close all numbers except of the ones used by him, what will happen then?

    Obviously one is not going to check on 668 every now and then and after this activity what is guarantee that more incorrect data Sims will not be issued?

    There must be a logic else this is waste of time of people and none of them are giving any interesting reward except for threat that illegal use will make us answerable …
