In order to “promote efficient use of numbers by operators and to eliminate potential misuse of numbers in the distribution channel such as retail stores”, ICASA, after due consultation with affected licensees, has decided to introduce a requirement for the provision of numberless or MSISDNless SIM starter packs from 15 May 2009. From this date the production and distribution of traditional SIM starter packs with numbers printed on them was terminated.
