INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The government asked mobile phone operators starting Tuesday (31/10/2017) to enact new rules for prepaid cell phone card registration requiring all old customers to re-register.

The government's steps are contained in MoCI Regulation no. 14 Year 2017 stating that all prepaid cell phone card customers are required to re-register.

If prepaid cell phone card holders do not re-register, outgoing or outgoing incoming calls as well as outgoing and incoming SMS outbound messages will be blocked.

Blocking outgoing call service and outgoing SMS outbound messages are executed since the re-registration notice is carried out by telecommunication service provider, no later than 30 calendar days.

The blocking of incoming call service and incoming SMS service will be made if not re-register no later than 15 calendar days since application of outgoing call service block and outgoing SMS short message.

Meanwhile, internet data service blocking will be performed if not re-register no later than 15 calendar days since the incoming call service blocking and incoming SMS service.

Despite being blocked, the prepaid mobile phone card can still use carrier service. But it is only for registration purposes only.

In addition, the MoCI Regulation also requires every single Resident Identity Number (NIK), the subscriber may register at least 3 cellular phone numbers, either prepaid or postpaid by any operator.

This rule and re-registration of these prepaid cards will come into effect as of today 31 October 2017 and the re-registration period will expire on February 28, 2018. (Abraham Sihombing)
