If you live in Pakistan then you may need to know about the Change Ownership of Any SIM in Pakistan. There are currently 4 mobile operators in Pakistan, including Jazz, Zong, Ufone, and Telenor. Warid was also a telecom network, but after merging with Mobilink Network, they created the new network Jazz. Jazz SIM is now being used extensively in Pakistan.
If you are using a SIM that is not registered in your name, that SIM may be blocked. Because as long as the owner of the SIM does not know about it, he will let it run and he can block it immediately after finding the missing SIM. If you do not know the owner of your SIM, write MNP from this SIM now and send an SMS to 667. You will get complete information about it. Once you have found the owner, you can meet the owner and have the SIM transferred to your name.
Running someone else’s SIM is a crime and PTA takes very strict action against it. So try to use a biometric registered SIM card only in your name. If you find another SIM, break it immediately and throw it away so that it will not be misused by anyone. Now it comes to how to transfer the SIM to your name. So the method is also simple.
How to Change Ownership of Any SIM in Pakistan
Check the SIM owner information by sending “MNP” to 667. Contact the owner when they find out and visit the Jazz franchise and office. To change SIM ownership, both “Whose Name is Registered SIM” and “Whose Name is to be used” should visit the Jazz Office with their original CNIC National Identity Card. Remember that both people must have original ID cards.
Jazz staff will give a form to the SIM owner and also give a form to the person who is getting the SIM in his name. You have to fill out these forms correctly. The person who has to transfer the SIM to his own name has to transfer the SIM to his own name through a biometric machine.
After biometrics, the SIM will be transferred immediately. Note that the company is not currently charging any fees. If you get a new SIM or have it replaced, you will have to pay an extra Rs 100 for the SIM. You can use this method for every network to Change Ownership of Any SIM in Pakistan.
