Registering SIM card

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is a new topic, but I am new again here and the SIM card thing is new to me.

Last month, when I was preparing myself to return to L.O.S. I understood that one must register a new phone SIM card in Thailand and that it could be handled at the Sewen store. Last Saturday, the day after I flew in to CNX I duly walked to a 7-11 and asked to buy a SIM and the young lady got one out and tried to do the registration thing but my passport photo it seems is too old to be copied decently ( passport was issued in 2011 in Los Angeles). (Had the same trouble at the airport in Vancouver last Thursday or Friday when the automatic check in machine rejected me so I had to wait and see a human.) 

The girl told me it wouldn't work - to go up the street to another shop..... At a some shop with counters of stuff for sale I saw they had phone accessories and I asked and they sold me SIM card for Bt150 without registering it. Fine.

Now the question is <deleted>? am I in danger of being arrested by the RTP - how would they find out about my offense ?

And, how can I get the thing registered to be legitimate? I will have to get a new passport soon as it is low on blank pages.

Go to happy dtac official counter. Ask someone where your nearest one is. Or go for another company if you like but happy is the only one with speed boost.
