Register your mobile device with PTA

According to a directive issued by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), mobile users now need to register their cellular devices with the authority.

Users can register their device via SMS by sending the IMEI number to 8484. Device’s IMEI number can be checked by dialling *#06# Moreover, registration can also be done via website or mobile application.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority had earlier sent notification to all mobile users asking them to register their smartphones and GSM devices before October 20.

Mobile phones not registered by the given date will be blocked by PTA.

    We are very much angry with such behaviour with expatriates and will stop all money remittance until this government gone.

    1. Dear Asim
      Legally it cannot be blocked but in our beloved country situation is not very encouraging. I suggest you submit a complaint at the following link and if no action is taken, launch your complaint at PM’s Citizens Portal. People do not like to fight for their rights and that is the reason behind all this mess.
