Does One Need To Register Ones Address When Buying A Phone Sim Card?

Was just told, that my phone SIM card which I purchased last August could be invalid very soon, as I didn't register my residential address when buying it. Someone told me that the time to do so is not more than 3 months after buying the SIM card. Can anyone confirm that? :o

Several years ago, during the Taksin administration the government did want everyone to register an address to their SIMS card. I remember taking mine into the Telewiz shop in MBK and filling out a form and showing my passport. Supposedly this was so they could be traced back to a registrant if one was used as a detonating device for a bomb as was being done in the southern border provinces at the time. The requirement has since been abandoned.

I thought as much. Cheers, mates. :o
