SMART has rolled out a new service called SIMSafe, that provides SMART and Talk ‘N Text prepaid users the convenience of not only retaining their old number when requesting for a new SIM, for whatever reason, but also the ability to retrieve their contact list as well. Neat, right?
Itâ€™s not free though, and you do have to register first to enjoy the SIMSafe advantage.
To begin, text REG to 7467. This costs Php1. You must then accept the terms and conditions by texting AGREE <six-letter password> <first name> <last name> <email> to 7467 (example: AGREE psswrd allan reyes firstname.lastname@example.org). This part of the registration process costs Php120, and will be deducted from your current load. After that, youâ€™re good to go!
To claim your new SIM loaded with your old number, just textÂ LOSS <password> <lost mobile number> to 7467. The number on the old SIM will then be deactivated, and you will receive info on how you can get your new SIM.
Just note the fine print, contacts backup is phone dependent, but this really shouldnâ€™t be much of a problem for you Android users out there. To check if yours is supported, head on over here.
