Vodacom no traceable person, NO SIM card.

Vodacom no traceable person, no SIM card.


South Africa’s Vodacom has decided to keep all the SIM cards should be available to traceable persons only. Around one million SIM cards were de-activated by the company.  So far these SIM cards are not yet activated by the users personally. Most of them belong to a single person and some of them to particular companies. This procedure is to prevent criminals using SIM cards. SIM cards will de-register, if not had been activated by the owner within 30 days.

In Sri Lanka and India too local Governments are not allowing SIM cards  to be in operation in mobile phones If they don;t have proper Identification of the owner. Also those phones which don’t have IMEI number too can’t be used in these countries.

From Vodacom office.

Vodacom chief officer said this is to prevent criminal and fraudulent activities by criminals from contacting others without their identity. As per South Africa cell phone regulatory rules it’s illegal to buy SIM and connect to network without required documentation. It will be the proof of residence and identity document.

In addition the RICA registration is free. Although some street vendors are charging to R5 – R10 to RICA the customers unregistered SIM cards.

In Sri Lanka people have to produce NIC to obtain Sim Card to use in use there. Also the client  must use a phone with IMEI number. Foreigners visiting Sri Lanka must provide their passport to obtain a limited time valid SIM card in Sri Lanka.
In India people need to provide “Athar” card and must be present at the Mobile carrier to obtain SIM card. When a visiting India wants a New Mobile SIM card then he must provide his photo, valid passport with valid visa. And the SIM card will be active till her/his expires if he regularly re-charge the mobile phone account. Recently Airtel and Vodafone had increased their standard package from INR 169/- to INR 219/-where the validity period is 28 days of time.

Why Governments force to SIM registration?

Further more most Governments want to issue SIM cards for the people who have registered their true details with the mobile phone carriers. This is because if the person engage in fraudulent activities or breaking the country’s law then he can be caught easily. For this they expect the party to provide passport copy, National Identity or other proof with their photo and residence address.

Further more some people used to make threatening calls to others. In other words people used to send nonsense SMS to unknown people. Spouses used to threat their separated wife’s through unregistered SIM phone numbers. Plenty of bad things used to happen through these fake people. To avoid theses Governments want to register all the SIM cards with the mobile phone carrier.

Warning On SIM Card.

Warning on SIM card can’t be ignored as it can lead to exposing your personal details, files and other important documents to out side people. Like PC and Laptop Smartphone’s SIM card too can be controlled by outsiders by planting scripts in your Smartphone. They used to take control of the device without the knowledge of the Smartphone owner, if the SIM card holding devices are connected to the internet. These scripts used to allow unauthorized access of your device. Those people can send email, dial calls, transfer money from your bank account and so on. And can perform every other possible things under your name to make profit for them.

Also their background activities not only drain your batteries but also use your data plan and your money too. Now the worst had come to every Smartphone owners. Recently a SIM card hack has been discovered by  Karsten Nohl, German cryptographer and security researcher in the recent years. According to him attackers can get in to the SIM card secretly through the scripts. And can send text messages messages or re-direct and record calls that are coming to that particular mobile phone. The trick is carried out through by sending a SMS message to capture the mobile phone through the SIM card.

Warning On SIM card

Further more the reports says that not all the SIM cards are at danger.  Although millions of phones can be affected if the security flaw supports the cyber criminals. And there are no chances for them to get the security flaw for another six month period.

Lot of phones are hijacked in the USA every year. Bad script providers targets the unsuspecting user who used to accept them and allow them to install the script.

Recently Sri Lanka TRC had announced all the mobile phone SIM card users must provide their true Identity to their carrier. To check this details the user can Dial #132# from his mobile phone and following the instructions they can find the following details.
Mobile phone number
Owner’s Name
NIC number
SIM number
If these don’t match with your details re-register the SIM once again under your name.

Major carriers are on the path to find a fix to this problem before it going to affect their business.

Warning for Smartphone users.

Meanwhile don’t accept or open SMS messages that are coming from unknown people with very interesting headlines. Also don’t open attachments that are coming from unknown people stored in your E-Mail inbox. Never play videos in your device that are coming from unknown senders. Never accept unknown peoples’ friend requests in social media apps. Don’t switch on Bluetooth in public places. If you happened to switch on it be careful of those people who try to send you some files. Like wise don’t jump on to unknown peoples’ free Wi-Fi hot spots. This is another path to place scripts to control in devices by outsiders.. So always use trusted Wi-Fi connection or pay and use your own Wi-Fi account. Also don’t connect with Bluetooth from unknown people’s devices.
