NCA: Outgoing Calls, Data Services To Be Blocked For Unregistered SIMs

The National Communications Authority (NCA) has announced that unregistered subscribers will have their outgoing calls and data services blocked for 48 hours each week from Today, September 5, 2022.

This is part of punitive measures against unregistered SIM cards ahead of the September 30 deadline.

The NCA also noted that there will be an interruption in placing calls for unregistered SIM cards.

“From Monday, September 5, 2022, subscribers who have not started registration will have all outgoing calls re-routed to an Interactive Voice Recording (IVR) for a SIM registration sensitisation message to be played before calls are connected.

“Subscribers with uncompleted registration, that is those who have linked their Ghana cards to their SIM cards via ※404# but have not proceeded to have their biodata captured will also face similar disruption in service from Wednesday, September 7, 2022.

“Punitive measures for data services will however kick in on September 12”, the NCA said in a statement.

It added that unregistered subscribers must have their SIMs registered within six months after September 30, 2022, or else risk losing their SIMs forever.
