Registering Using SMS

To register using SMS deaf text messages you must:

  2. You will receive a message containing information on the service.
  3. Read the messages and reply by sending the word 'Yes' to the number 999.
  4. Once this is complete you should receive a message stating your mobile phone is now registered.

Checking your registration:

You can check your mobile phone registration by sending the word 'REGISTER' in a SMS message to 999.

You will then receive a SMS message telling you your mobile phone is registered or if there is a problem with your registration.
