National Mobile Phone Directory

I wonder when will we have a national directory for mobile phones? I’ve been receiving a lot of scam texts lately and though I never fall for them, I just really like those people behind it to answer to the law. I really think that wireless carriers should not be indiscriminate in selling prepaid simcards. A lot of dodgy people have been using prepaid simcards to do their evil deeds. Requiring mobile users to register their mobile phone numbers would lessen crimes using mobile phones.

I mean, right now I would even prefer a Reverse Cell Phone Lookup up service though I don’t think this service is available for Philippine mobile phone numbers. Some people might not be too keen on the idea of a national directory for mobile phone numbers due to privacy reasons but we could put up a no call list information. The point is that we even if you’re publicly registered or not, all mobile phone numbers should be accounted for to prevent crimes.
