With SIM re-verification drive entering into its second phase, mobile phone users are hurrying to get their mobile numbers re-verified through biometric verification system.
Just to remind, any SIM that will remain un-verified after April 13th, 2015 will get blocked.
During this, when customers reach service centres, franchises or retail outlets of cellular companies, they are told that SIMs are not in their name. Hence it is always a good idea to know the owner name and CNIC of a SIM card.
