DITO has just released a Quick Guide for its subscribers relative to Republic Act No. 11934, or the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) Registration Act and NTC Memorandum Circular No. 001-12-2022. Based on its Quick Guide, new DITO subscribers can register starting December 27, 2022 via the SMS link sent after SIM card insertion. Existing subscribers on the other hand can register via the DITO APP. Registration is free of charge.

All existing DITO subscribers must register within 180 days of the law’s effectivity which will be on December 27, 2022 or a three-month period until April 2023. However, RA 11934 also allows the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) up to a maximum period of one hundred twenty (120) days. DITO SIM cards not registered during the said period will be automatically deactivated.
