Find SIM Information Online
Have the ID card number? Find the count (how many) of SIMs have been issued for that ID and the corresponding mobile provider. This is courtesy of a new online utility by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA). This Subscriber Identity Module information system was created to address associated risks on security and to ensure subscription regulations in cellular sector. I tested against my NICOP and it gave me the correct result. Try yours today!
More from PTA site:
Every mobile user can know number of SIMs issued against his CNIC with the mobile company name by sending his CNIC number without dashes and spaces to 668 through SMS. Rs.2/- will be charged on each SMS which is inclusive of all taxes. In case of unauthorized numbers against his CNIC number, a consumer can get the data corrected from the concerned mobile operator’s Customer Services Center. The unauthorized SIM owners will be advised to register the SIM in their names within seven days of notification from concerned Customer Services Center otherwise their calling facility will be stopped after thirteen days and the SIM will be completely blocked after seventeen days of that notice. This service will help in further streamlining the data of mobile phone users.
