Mobile Phone Bills can Land you in Jail

Unpaid UAE mobile-phone bills can result in travel ban or arrest: TRA official
My Number My Identity' campaign aimed at stopping misuse of mobile phones
Many problems are caused by the misuse of mobile phones especially by people who are not the real owners of the numbers, said Majid Sultan Al Mesmar, Deputy Director-General of the Telecom Regulatory Authority (TRA).
Al Mesmar said mobile phone users are sometimes forced to pay tens of thousands of dirhams as phone tariffs incurred by others. Many cases relating to misuse of mobile phones are in the courts, he added.
Al Mesmar said Etisalat and du are obliged to cut service if an owner of a number does not settle his bill.
Both the service providers are entitled to issue notices to owners of the mobile phones numbers who have accumulated large amounts on their bills
Such notices could expose them to travel bans or arrest upon arrival in any UAE port.
It is for these reasons that the TRA obliged etisalat and du to launch the 'My Number My identity' campaign aimed at controlling the misuse of phone numbers.
The real owner of a number can also face charges of defamation and libel if the person who has borrowed his SIM card misuses it. Those who do not register their numbers could face disconnection of the service which will be restored only after they register.
The user will be given a deadline of six months if he wants to cancel a number. After this deadline, the service provider can disconnect service.
To register his number, the owner has to be personally present in the office of the service provider since his signature is required on the form, he added.
