Prepaid phone user registration begins

PENANG: The registration of prepaid cellphone users in the country has begun.

The exercise started here on Oct 1 and 2, with the registration of new prepaid account holders under a three-month pilot programme.

The programme kicked off with a two-day roadshow in Plaza Gurney here, hosted by the country’s three cellular service providers – Maxis Communications Bhd, Celcom (M) Bhd, and DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd.

A similar event will be held at the Mahkota Parade in Malacca on Oct 8 and 9.

Existing prepaid users in every state are encouraged to register now, although actual nationwide registrations will only begin in January, next year.

To register, go to any authorised service centre, agent or dealer with your phone and identity card – or some other official document of identification – and fill up a form.

The Government is making it compulsory for users to register in order to prevent abuse of prepaid cellphone accounts.
