Deadline to register your prepaid mobile phone two days away

The deadline for registering your prepaid mobile phone in Thailand is on July 31st, just two days away. According to the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission those who do not register will face having their service suspended.

The law requiring prepaid mobile phone users to register their number has been in place for some time but until now has not been implemented. Since February 2015 those buying a new prepaid SIM card have had to provide their passport details.

Those with existing numbers can register their phones at Big C or 7-11 or their mobile phone carrier such as DTAC or AIS and provide their name, their mobile phone number and their passport or Thai ID card.

To check the status of a mobile phone just call *151# and you will get an SMS message back on the status of your phone SIM card registration. The code works no matter which carrier you are using, True, AIS or DTAC.

As well as complying with the law, registering your SIM ensures that should you lose your phone you can get a new SIM with the same number.
