What Network: List of Mobile Number Prefixes in Philippines

It used to be easy to know which mobile phone number belongs to which network. In the past, there are just a few variations. However, more mobile number prefixes have been created to suffice the demands for more numbers, especially that Filipinos are fond of keeping dual SIM phones to easily get connected with family and friends who are using the same network.

For Filipinos, having the same network with people they usually communicate with can save their money. For one, a lot of telco promos for SMS and calls are usually available only of you us it to send messages or call those with the same network. Many do not want to spend their regular load on new numbers that they are not sure on which network belongs. This is why it is important to know the mobile number prefixes.
