Now it is Singapore's turn

More and more countries follow the trend to ask mobile phone users to register their prepaid phonecards - the newest member in the club is Singapore. The most common reason used in this is the ongoing threat of terrorism and the usage of mobile phones to trigger the device.

Other explanations put forward is the abuse of prepaid phone cards to bother other users. Before the registration, prepaid phonecard users couldn't be traced, or it was tough and took longer. Now, this has become easier, even so more bureaucratic. Will this reduce the threat of suicide bombings? I doubt it, seriously.
