Imagine your worst nightmare becoming a reality; your mobile phone being snatched. Regardless of how expensive a handset is, what creates panic among the person is your SIM card being in wrong hands. The SIM could be used for wrongful – and at times criminal – purposes and since it is registered under your name, you might find yourself in unnecessary troubles leading to a litany of steps followed to clear the air.
Also, suppose your cellphone wasn’t taken away, what exactly can happen for you to request for SIM blockade? The answer is imposter. The possibility of a SIM registered under your name is too high, and there have been cases where a SIM is registered against the CNIC which is issued against the person who is unrelated to the person using the SIM. Pakistani authorities have a laudable system which allows people to check the number of SIMs registered under their name. In case you find any discrepancy, you can always block the SIM.
To avoid unwanted confusion and the subsequent clarification, there is an easy route for you to take: block the SIM card. Now, the next question arising is regarding the steps that should be taken to do the needful.
The first step is to visit the nearest franchise and get the SIM card cancelled.
The second, and most preferred one, is to call the helpline, register your case, and ask for the cancellation of SIM.
