List of Mobile Network Prefixes in the Philippines

Moving on, a mobile number in the Philippines is composed of 11 digits (example: 09183441812). The first 4 digits (example: 0918) is what we call as the “mobile number prefix” which determines the mobile network either Globe, Smart, Sun Cellular, etc. Each mobile network has its own network codes or prefixes.

Given that there are over seventy (70) mobile prefixes in the Philippines, it’s hard to figure out which prefixes belongs to what network. Honestly, it’s difficult to memorize them all unless you daily job requires calling customers on different networks.
