Who are you to say that?

mostly peoples have more than one sim activitied so actul numbers of cell phonue consumers would be much less

if they honestly block all the 'non-registered' numbers, the total number of users might fall down at atleast 75% of what they're claiming.

and even ths 88million number doesn't seem that 'real', i mean i've got 5 sims from all the 5 operators in the company (all registered in my name) ... now i dunno how did they count those 5 sims of mine in the servey? they counted me as 5 users, or my 5 sims as a single user?

Since it's a common practice to issue many sims on a single ID card, they must have counted every sim as a different user to reach that impressive figure.

well

v r realy a sim crazy nation

but i hav only 1 tht i am using frm 3 years

one of my friend has more than 20 SIMs activated at a time...........

i bought sims of almost all companies but dont ever use them and they expired. :lol:
