Take note that if someone in the Philippines have given his/her mobile phone number that starts with 0, don’t include 0. The standard mobile number in the Philippines is +63 prefix then followed by 10 digit number. Example: +639123456789 

But we can just replace the +63 with 0 when calling local numbers. Example, we can use 09123456789 instead of +639123456789. But in international call, it won’t work. So if someone have given you his/her mobile number that starts with 0, forget 0 and follow the instructions above.
