SIM Registration & Phone Number Portability

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: August 16, 2005

With the prevalent incidents of phone scams, it brings to mind the lobbying of certain sectors to require SIM registration for pre-paid users. A SIM, or subscriber identity module, for prepaid phone users are, up to now, completely anonymous allowing phone scams go unchecked and hard to trace because of this anonymity.

And a huge chunk of the subscriber base of these telecom companies (Globe Telecoms, Smart Communications & Sun Cellular) are using prepaid SIMs. With the registration comes similar benefits like that of…

However, despite the great success in achieving this number in such a short time (talk about a couple of months) this figure was primarily reinforced by the fact that during the trial…

Relevance: 84%      Posted on: December 29, 2007

As we close in on the end of the year, I'd like to go back and review some of the more interesting discussions and debates we had throughout the year. One of them is mobile blogging (moblogging) and its future in the Philippine cybersphere. Back in April, Jayvee, Marc and I were debating on the viability of mobile blogging in the Philippines (see: Why MoBlogging isn’t hot in the Philippines?). Different viewpoints were shared -- moblogging is expensive, there are usability problems and more. My contention then was that Filipinos aren't really that hot with personal blogging. Later on, I…
