Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I switch networks without changing my mobile number?

Yes, the Mobile Network Portability (MNP) law allows you to switch networks while keeping your existing number. This is now available for Globe, SMART, and DITO (also for TM, Sun, TNT, and GOMO).

2. How can I find my mobile number?

You can use the About Phone feature under your phone’s settings. You can also see your number written in your SIM card.

3. The mobile number is written with a +63 at the beginning. How can I know its network?

Just replace +63 with “0” and use the list of prefixes above to determine which network the number belongs to. For instance, the number +639071234567 is just 09071234567 with a prefix 0907 which belongs to Smart.
