Updated List Of Mobile Number Prefixes In The Philippines 2021

by | Posted on: January 18th, 2021 | No Comments | Technology

Our lives are filled with numbers that we defend a lot on, telephone numbers, dates, license plate numbers, PIN numbers, bank accounts, addresses, zip codes, employee numbers, and so forth.

Unfortunately, numbers are one of the most difficult things to remember since they are purely abstract. It is relatively easier to picture Mickey Mouse holding a magician’s wand in a colorful magician’s wardrobe in front of a 189 feet tall castle at the Walt Disney World in Orlando, USA than it is to visualize the number 377642274846249749363548.

The number 09184679894 would be hard to remember even for a short time, but if you chunk it into blocks like 0918-467-9894, you will find it much easier to remember. A number like this mobile number can be placed in short-term memory long enough to dial, but if you want to dial it with ease, without confusion, here’s a handy guide to mobile number prefixes in the Philippines, which you can refer to if you want to know if a particular number belongs to Globe or Smart, or other mobile networks in the country.

To begin with, what is a mobile number prefix?

A mobile number prefix is the first four digits of the 11-digit mobile number, 4-3-4 scheme. For example, the mobile number prefix of 09187654321 is 0918. This prefix determines what mobile network this particular number belongs to, whether Smart, Globe, Sun Cellular, Touch Mobile (TM), Talk ‘N’ Text, among other mobile networks in the country.

Mobile numbers are coded based on network providers ranging from 0800 to 0999. The Philippines’ international code replaces the zero to make an international call to the Philippines that would make it +63800 to +63999.

As I’ve said earlier, recalling numbers to some is quite a difficult thing to do, let alone memorizing the majority if not all of the country’s mobile number prefixes and their corresponding mobile networks, given that in this decade alone, there is a sudden rise in the number of mobile service providers in the country, most especially with the impending entry of a third telco player, the DITO telecom.

At present, there are many mobile number prefixes across the earlier mentioned mobile networks. Hence, it’s relatively easy to forget which network a prefix belongs to whenever you are availing a call or text promo, or you want to call or text a particular number.

Below is the list of mobile number prefixes in the country that will surely aid anyone to determine what mobile network a number belongs to. This is quite helpful to avoid extra charges for inter-network connections.

There are 3 big mobile networks in the Philippines that are already mentioned above, namely: Smart, Globe, and Sun Cellular. The remaining others are Republika ng TM, Talk ‘N Text (TNT), Cherry Prepaid, and ABS-CBN Mobile. Sun Cellular and TNT are both subsidiaries of Smart, while the Republika ng TM is a Globe subsidiary.
