Yes, since December 2016 all holders of Pay&Go cards without automatic top-ups have been required to register. This also applies to cards in alarm systems, home automation appliances or other devices that contain a Pay&Go card. You can identify yourself immediately in a Proximus Shop or identify your Pay&Go card online.

No. If you don't register you'll not be able to make or receive calls Texting and mobile Internet will not be possible either.
The registration is definitive unless you have registered when topping up via the bank. In that case, the registration of your Pay&Go card applies for only 18 months. You will therefore need to register again.
