If you’re having trouble figuring out how to get your mobile phone registered, you can pay a visit to the nearest branch of your mobile operator and get it done in Rs100.
The service has been introduced by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to “facilitate consumers wanting to register their mobile devices”, according to a press statement issued by the authority on Wednesday.
