You either didn't read the article or at least not fully. It says criminal groups here working with those abroad.

G, I think most people think that there may be a few individuals engaging here and there in text scamming. But from what you say it's a cottage industry where you live! If so then maybe this bill will do some good. Can you expand on this?

The problem is it's a bit like sari sari stores. There's a family just down the road who started this and then a few friends get in on it. Before you know it everyone wants a bit of the good thing. Several of the lads are driving around on nice motorbikes with no visible means of support. A family the other side of us before it shut down was running the online Sabong. There's a compound on the edge of the village will dozens of motorbikes from where people had run up debts playing online Sabong.

The first salvos coming on SIM registration. The usual threat of a minimum 6 months in jail for false information!
Looks like you can do it online. But another chore for the New Year.

One would "hope "... yes "hope only " that customers who have been with companies like Globe / Smart for many many years and who have supplied the required ID in order to get the smi and phone contract would be auto enrolled/verified... but sometime hope is a vague thing. no doubt some other body will want some more personal information , to be stored ( your data is safe with us !) , and then sold on to more scammers in due course. "Sorry po we had a breach in our secure system ".

Looks like a chore nearer Easter, the Department of Information and Communications Technology said Monday that problems may occur in the first two weeks. So situation normal then badly planned, badly managed and not ready for operation.

Department of Information and Communications Technology was definitely right in their guess there would be problems with the registering of SIM cards

Saw somewhere that Globe can only register 20k Sims per day. They have 86 million SIMs. So it would take nearly 12 years to register every SIM working at full capacity if that were to be believed. Plenty of time then 😜😅

Ps. Just heard of someone trying to register with Globe that the requirements include: 3 IDs, selfies, proof of address, work permit and return tickets. Think I will wait awhile 🤣

If you are on a tourist visa then if you register the SIM it is only valid for 30 days

Sooo... what happens after the tourist extends for 6 months as an example?

Maybe a better idea would be that registration would be valid for life for all and only deregistered after 1 year of inactivity for instance.

sir, you are assuming an element of logic here. Wrong thing to do. Inmates and asylums. Remember, now its not the job of govt to ensure everyone is registered but the telco companies. Theres nothing in tihis for them to do this, only fines of they dont.
And aslo , fakes registration sites have already appeared on FB ( naturally there ! ) advising of how to complete and to pay with Gcash. Not unexpected.

Ah yes. Logic. The word doesn't appear to be in the Philippines language. Sorry....I forgot myself.
