Save Your SIM, register today!

That was the message from the new Digicel PNG Vice President, Lorna McPherson, when she called on all Digicel SIM holders to register their SIM card before the end of July.

“You cannot take any chances, it must be done and it needs to be done right now.” Said Lorna.

“This is a government directive, and we need to take heed of their decision. So come the end of July we will deactivate any SIM cards that are not registered.” Lorna added.

To avoid this it will simply take five minutes of your time register your SIM at any Digicel outlet today.

Countdown has already begun!

There won't be any further extensions, and Digicel has started to test systems to deactivate un-registered SIMs.

In an interview with the Digicel PNG Senior Vice President, Lorna McPherson, customers have been reminded that failure to register their SIM cards would mean that they would be cut off from connecting to the Digicel network. 

“You won’t be able to make a call, you won’t be able to SMS, you won’t be able to go on the internet; your SIM won’t work,” said McPherson.
