Another SIM card Self-Service Application for subscribers in Ghana has been launched. New SIM card registrants would now have the option to complete their SIM card registration effectively, as the App by the National Communication Authority, NCA, is currently available to download.
The first phase of the app is available only to subscribers with access to Google Play Store – i.e. Android users.
The App allows users to complete their SIM card re-registration using the Ghana Card, with each operation coming at a GH¢5 charge.
Meanwhile, an NCA statement dated August 26 says:
“The App is intended for subscribers who have done Stage 1 of their SIM card registration to complete Stage 2.
“Subscribers who prefer to physically go to their Service Provider’s registration points to complete Stage 2 can still do so.”
The statement additionally tended to people who are on the iOS system – for example Apple users.
“The NCA urges subscribers to reach out to its Operational Support Centre via toll-free number 0800-110-622 or the Authority’s handles on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedln or the NCA’s website, www.nca.org.gh for any inquiries or more information about the App”.
Communication and Digitalization Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, late last month announced that the app was going to be rolled out in days when she ‘reluctantly’ announced an extension to the SIM Card re-registration cutoff time.
