Some unregistered SIM users blocked from making calls as NCA sanctions bite hard
Some mobile network subscribers have said they are experiencing interruptions with their phone service, following the sanctions imposed by the National Communications Authority (NCA).
The displeased users, who have been expressing their discomfort on social media, indicated that they are unable to make outgoing calls but can receive only incoming ones.
According to some, they received messages from their service providers that their SIM cards have been blocked ‘partially’ for two days due to their failure to re-register them using the Ghana Card.“MTN has blocked my SIM from making calls; I can only receive calls but I can’t make calls. Like play, like play I can’t make calls.
“Why is MTN the only telco forcing the SIM re-registration process? I have gone through the process of registering my Ghana Card and I still don’t have my card because of reasons best known to NIA,” some subscribers lamented in Twitter posts.
It appears not only MTN subscribers are facing the latest restrictions in phone calls and text messages.
AirtelTigo users who are yet to register their SIM cards are equally being restricted in the number of mobile services they can enjoy.
