    Fookin' Dtac re-registering nonsense. Koonts cut me off.

    Had me ol' trusty Dtac Hap-peeee sim card for 11-12 years now. Fookin' champion of a thing.


    Then the Big Boys took over the country a few years ago and gave us all 6 or 12 months to officially register our Sim cards or they'd be cut off.

    Got ol' Thai matey to register mine, saved me a lot of hassle and he'll be the one going to Klong Premmers for a 20 stretch if it's ever pinched.



    Got an SMS a week ago. Dear Lulu. Please re-register this Sim card within a week or it will be cut off. Thanks very much. Fookin' Dtac Hap-peeeee.


    Obviously I did what 99% of men would do.

    1) Deleted it.
    2) Nothing.



    They've only gone and cut the fookin' thing off. No network. No data. Bollox.


    What a right pain in the bollox. At a guess I'd say it's been 3 years since it was first legally registered with an ID. Gonna have to hunt down a Dtac stall now tomorrow to sort the fookin' thing.


    Chance of going full-Manny on the koonts:.... Extremely high.



    Anyone else had this shite?

    Yeah, pretty sure 99% of men haven't got cut off.

    I took a copy of my passport to Central Festival CM and got it sorted in two minutes ages ago.

    ^^ Yeah, but it means getting up off the sofa.


    Unless one of the motosai taxi guys will do it for 500 baht.



    12 years of service and this is how they treat me.

    Outrageous.

    Yeah, it was officially ID registered around 3 years ago already.

    ^ It might have been forced on DTAC by the powers that be. I remember reading recently something about that in a news thread, something to do with frequency allocation .. or summit like that. Maybe, anyway.

    DTAC to axe over 94,625 customers from 15th

    https://www.bangkokpost.com/business...d-service-loss

    Dtac users 'must switch' to avoid service loss

    Almost 95,000 customers on Total Access Communication’s (Dtac) 850MHz mobile phone network must switch to use other spectrum services by midnight Saturday to keep using their services.

    The announcement was made Thursday by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) following the commission’s decision on Wednesday not to offer a remedy period to Dtac customers after the network's 28-year concession expires on Sept 15.

    The NBTC said that 94,625 customers of Dtac’s 850MHz network are required to switch to Dtac’s other spectrum or other mobile phone operators by the deadline, otherwise they will be unable to use the service anymore.

    Dtac customers can check whether their numbers will be affected at *444#.

    Dtac posted on its Facebook page Thursday that 99% of its 850MHz network customers would definitely continue using the service.

    The company posted a Thai-language video explaining for the "unfortunate 94,625" users what to do to continue service after regulators cut access to the 850MHz spectrum at midnight Saturday.

    That's the one.


    I knew I should have glanced over it before deleting it.


    Any idea if I can switch over now or is it too late?

    The Central Administrative Court on Friday threw a lifeline to 95,000 customers of Total Access Communication Plc (DTAC), giving them three more months to switch to a different spectrum or operator.

    The court said in the injunction statement after the ruling that DTAC had the right to protect affected customers until Dec 15. This means DTAC subscribers using the 850MHz bandwidth have three months to switch to other spectrums operated by the company, or move to another provider.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it had nothing to do with any bandwidth, but a stalker is after your personal details.

    Now I just gotta find out what 'changing to another spectrum' entails.


    Last time I did that it involved mushrooms and Spaceman 3 turned up to number 11.

    Probably just a simple case of them giving you a new SIM card (and probably registering it).

    Get on it like a horney toad with a scrumpet.

    Something like that.

    But in white.


    I actually always have to ask Dill after he spent his time stalking down metadata or whatever. Samsung S or J or A or Bombata 7 or something like that. Foked if I know.

    That sucks. Reckon next time you get a message from DTAC to do something suggest you do it rather than dumping the message

    I have AIS. Never a prob. If you have to change number anyway, not to big a deal to go with AIS. Plus sends message to DTAC re your displeasure. Not that they give a damn.
