SIM Card Registration FAQs

How can I register as a Smart Postpaid user?

For postpaid customers, Smart will notify you and ask for your confirmation about the details and documents you provided when you subscribed as a Smart SIM user. This is information that they can automatically use to register you under the SIM Card Registration Act.

Can I register multiple SIM cards?

YES. There is no limit to the number of SIM cards registered under one name. However, you must register EACH SIM card separately through their respective registration portal links.

For instance, if you have TWO or more Smart SIM Cards, you must register each through the registration portal, repeating the process until you have registered all SIM under your name.

Meanwhile, if you have different SIM cards from other telcos, such as Globe, DITO, TM and others, you must register each SIM card under your name through the different registration portal provided by the telcos, repeating the process until you have registered all SIM under your name.
