Passage by the Upper House of Senate Bill 2395, or the SIM (subscriber identification module) Card Registration Act, ‘’is a huge step to deter the commission of crimes in the country,’’ Senator Ronald ‘’Bato’’ dela Rosa on Friday September 17 said.In his co-sponsorship speech, Dela Rosa said the mandatory registration of SIM cards would deter the commission of online frauds or crimes.

“With the proposed measure…SIM card registration shall now be mandatory as a prerequisite for the sale thereof, including all existing SIM card subscribers with active services who shall likewise be required to register with their respective Public Telecommunications Entity,” he pointed out.

The former Chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP) noted that cellphones are now being used by scammers and terrorist elements in their illegal activities.SIM cards are installed in cellphones to electronically transmit and receive communications through various forms, styles, and settings.

He recalled that last year, at least 10 riders delivered P20,000 worth of food items to a subdivision resident in Las Piñas City who claimed to have not placed any order through a food delivery App.“Sadly, when these instances happen, there is no way we could identify the perpetrator and, thus, our delivery riders are left with no choice but to bear the burden of losing their hard-earned money,” Dela Rosa said.

The senator from Mindanao said that cellphones are also being used in bombing activities of suspected terrorists, like the incident on January 27, 2019 where security footage showed one of the bombers was holding the mobile phone believed to have been used to trigger the blast that targeted 2 churches in MIndanao.

He also recalled that on September 4, 2016, a mobile phone was used to detonate an improvised bomb in Davao City, and on January 26, 2011, 5 people were killed in a bus in Manila when a mortar was exploded through the use of a cellphone.Dela Rosa, chairman of the Senate Public Order and Dangerous Drugs committee, lamented that by using unregistered SIM cards, criminal elements can conveniently hide their identities because “once the prepaid SIM card is disposed, there is no way for us to identify the perpetrator.”

“It (SB 2395) is a huge step to deter the commission of crimes in the country,As the famous saying goes, ‘Prevention is better than cure’,” Read more: Manila Bulletin News »

Matatapos na lahat ng troll farms when sim is registered. Sige pag binili sa bangketa o tiangge ang sim saan nila i submit ng tindera ang record? Pag isipan nyo muna bago magsalita, im not against for sim registration Okay yan Totally agree Brilliant move Senator De La Rosa, Saudi Arabia has this Law... Sim card number is being used for our Iquama ( residency reference ) it's a very tracer of each individual, even in Facebook or any apps Good to adapt here in Philippines 🇵🇭

Not too late. I presented my passport in France when I got my SIM card. I don't like Bato but this bill I like ..pwede..para iwas na sa scammers Napag iwanan na ang pilipinas. sa ibang bansa naka register na ang mga sim nila sa ating hanggang ngayon pinag dedebatehan pa. Pag ang pilipino nag work abroad matic ang sim naka register sa gobyerno

I agree! 2014 pa ganyan na sa UAE.. need passport to buy sim card. yes!

Just another anti-crime bill. It will never work. Build that in sa national id hindi sana kalat na ganito. _ From 10 before to hundreds of laws today and still chaos.. death penalty for corrupt officials that's the solution Excited Ka na Ba SA ICC ? Ayaw ng mga kriminal, terorista, komunista at dilawan yan for sure 🤣🤣🤣

sa Japan, ganyan din po, walang pre-paid, unless turista ka, pero nakaregister pa rin number Noon pa ako pabor sa SIM registration. Please be done. Sana maisabatas para hindi na magamit ang sim card sa paggawa ng kalokohan. Dapat attached yan sa national identification The interesting question is: What makes mandatory PREPAID SIM registration objectionable, but POSTPAID SIM registration acceptable? thread

Maganda yan, tapos…dito sa Qatar kahit sa pdalahan lng mobile number lng need poyde na basta nkaregister kna sa pdalahan with that mobile number… This is good. Finally, for the sake of national security, peace and oder. drama Dapat lang po Dapat talaga matagal na to eh. Dapat lang sa ibang bansa naka register lahat ng sim card at may limit lang kung hangang ilang sim lang pwede mo bilihin

This bill when passed into law will benefit the delivery riders who often fall victim to scammers. Without having a national ID it's a waste of time and effort. Focus on priorities 😜😂😁😆🤣😄👹🤬 Big brother in the guise of security?

Hirit na voter registration extension tumitindi paPatuloy na hinihimok ang Commission on Elections (Comelec) na i-extend ang deadline ng voter registration.

Philippines should push thru the implementation of the National ID system first. Then this proposal, person should register his SIM under his National ID. There should also be rules that limit the number of SIM a person could register under his name. KSA's implementing that. there's already a proposed bill before from previous admin.. tsk tsk

Agree SA US aga yan po lalo Na da Australia! Pabor ako dito sapagkat tinatamad akong palitan iyong sim na nakasanayan ko ng bagong number dahil hassle na para sa akin yun. lazymeowww dapat lang talaga nakaregister ang sim card sa owner para di magamit sa scam mga NPA at NPA supporters talagang tutol dito.

Yes, this will deter scammers. I agree with this proposal. With the prevalence of mobile related crime, such a proposal would probably be of great help in law enforcement. Still, I'd like to see the contents of the proposed bill. so tapos ano ang point dito? para makapasok na naman ang telecommunication business ng china anti crime pero protektor ng sindikato at kriminal!
