Registered, yes, or cleared, you could say. Apparently the idea is that you text your full name and DOB, or civil registry ID, to the service provider so that if the phone line is ever used for criminal activity, they can track down the person associated with the line.
I say cleared because according to the article below, texting in your info is a lot like e-filing your taxes: sometimes it gets there and sometimes it doesn't. And sometimes they don't let you know if there's been a snafu or not, meaning you might be without cell phone service. Sounds like fun.
