Unregistered SIM cards to be blocked for 48 hours plus other sanctions

Read Time:1 Minute, 8 Second

Users of SIM cards in Ghana who have not updated their registration information will begin to face sanctions as of Monday, September 5, 2022.

The National Communications Authority’s document states that one of the initial disciplinary actions will involve rerouting outgoing calls so that special messages can be broadcast.

Additionally, some numbers will be restricted from receiving special messages for 48 hours.

These actions must not involve SMS service banning by September in order to provide delinquent subscribers the chance to start registration if they so want.

The full blocking of SIM cards will only begin after September 30.

“Subscribers who fully register their SIM Cards within the period they have been blocked will only be unblocked by the MNOs after the 48 hours to avoid the MNOs tampering with their systems intermittently,” the document noted.
