Pta mobile registration is the easiest way to register blocked mobile phone. It also carries some issues with it. Although, the process seems quite simple but when it comes to phone registration, you may find complicated cautions. For instance, if you have bought a pta blocked phone and you want to register it. You will sign up with pta dirbs system. For this, you will vist pta official website. Once you log in your account to register mobile phone, there are information tabs. These tabs ask for personal and mobile related information.
