  • Step 1. Visit http://www.smart.com.ph/simreg    
  • Step 2. Input your information and upload a valid ID

Smart’s SIM registration portal uses optical character recognition (OCR), the technology required by the law to efficiently gather and protect subscribers’ personal information throughout the process. 

Smart is also making its SIM Registration accessible to subscribers through these alternative channels:   

  • Smart Stores nationwide 
  • Smart Hotlines (call *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) 

On the other hand, in compliance with the law, Smart is making SIM Registration more convenient for postpaid subscribers, who simply need to confirm the personal information and IDs they submitted for their postpaid plan application. To do this confirmation, subscribers just need to text YES to 5858. They shall then receive a confirmation message from Smart upon successful SIM Registration. 

Meanwhile, to register the SIM inserted in their WiFi device, Smart Bro subscribers need to refer to  www.smart.com.ph/viewbroadbandsms for instructions on viewing their required One-Time Password (OTP). 

Alongside their support for SIM registration, PLDT and Smart’s long-standing consumer protection initiatives include blocking SIMs that send ‘smishing’ messages and Uniform Resource Locators (URL) or links that lead to illegal activities to help safeguard the public against emerging cyberthreats, vulnerabilities, and other online criminal activities.
