Effective immediately, Swisscom Mobile prepaid customers can register retroactively at post offices. Swisscom Mobile is offering these additional registration outlets in order to enable retroactive registration of some 300,000 NATEL® easy customers who still have to register their prepaid cards by 31 October 2004 in as customer-friendly a manner as possible. Instead of the previous 1,000 or so sales outlets, a total of over 3,000 registration outlets are now available to customers.
NATEL® easy customers who are not sure whether they need to register their SIM card can enter code *106*66# to check whether or not their mobile number is subject to registration. Retroactive registration is free of charge and must be carried out in person. A valid passport, identity card or travel document accepted for entry into Switzerland is required for verification purposes, and registration forms must be completed. The registration form can be downloaded from www.swisscom-mobile.ch/nateleasy and completed in advance. As soon as registration is entered in the Swisscom Mobile system, the NATAL® easy customer will receive confirmation by SMS.
In accordance with the regulation, Swisscom Mobile is obliged to block the access of customers who fail to register by 31 October 2004.
