From seniors to not-so-techie, subscribers register their SIMs through Smart, cooperatives in Mindanao

Mobile services provider Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart), with its value brand TNTph, has teamed up with partner cooperatives in Mindanao to assist more subscribers with SIM card registration.  

Golden Friendship Eco-friendly Transport Cooperative (GOFETCO), Agdao Multi-Purpose Cooperative, Sta. Ana Multipurpose Cooperative (SAMULCO), and Metro Gensan Transport Cooperative were among the coops that joined the telco’s nationwide SIM registration campaign.

“Smart has made SIM registration convenient and easily accessible, assisting senior citizens and subscribers who are using phones without mobile data. They have also guided our members who have questions about SIM registration,” said Eric Castillon, Marketing Head of SAMULCO. 


Cooperative member Roselyn Erag shared, “My SIM is now more secure, thanks to Smart. We are grateful that they are assisting us here in SAMULCO.”


“We at Smart are doing the best we can to help everyone comply with the SIM Registration Law and ensure that no one gets left behind in our fight against SIM-, Internet-, and Electronic-enabled crimes. We are maximizing our partnership with the cooperatives to provide on-ground SIM Registration assistance to our subscribers in need,” said Grace Ruperto, Assistant Vice President, and Center Head for Customer Development Strategies and Support at Smart.


Smart’s SIM card registration drive is part of the company’s broader goal to protect more subscribers from SIM-, internet-, and electronic communication-aided crimes. SIM owners have until April 26, 2023, to register their SIMs before these will be deactivated.  


Subscribers are advised to register their SIMS to keep these active and to help fight against scammers and predators online. New and existing Smart Prepaid and TNT subscribers may also visit PLDT and Smart stores and access Smart’s SIM registration portal through, while postpaid customers can simply text YES to 5858 to confirm their registration.
