No More Sim Sales at Shops and MNP is Banned

Pakistan Govt have ordered Telecom operators to stop selling new mobile connections through dealers. New sims will be delivered by only Franchise or main service centres. Delivering new mobile connections to customer CNIC address is also being considered.

Government have also implemented ban on MNP service. Mobile number portability (MNP) service allow users to change network without changing number. Now customers in Pakistan can't change their mobile network without changing number. Don't know whether this is a temporarily ban or permanent.
