If you ever wondered which network a specific mobile number belongs to, look no further. In this article, we'll provide an easy Mobile Network Checker updated for 2021 (including DITO's prefixes).

A Pinoy's Quick Guide to Mobile Phone Numbers 

There are currently four major mobile operators in the country – Globe Telecom Inc., PLDT Incorporated, Smart Communications Corporation, and DITO Telecommunity. The other mobile network providers include TM, TNT, Cherry Prepaid, and ABS-CBN Mobile. Each company operates its own mobile service under different brands but all use GSM technology.

There are two types of mobile number prefixes - national and regional. National prefixes cover all areas while regional prefixes cover only specific regions.

In addition, there are also some special mobile networks that have been created specifically for certain purposes like emergency calls and government agencies. These include 999, 911 and 112.

A mobile number prefix represents the first four digits of the 11-digit mobile number. A prefix identifies to which mobile network a particular number belongs, e.g. Smart, Globe, Sun Cellular, or DITO. 

For example, the mobile phone number 09457734633 has a phone number prefix of 0945---it's under Globe Telecom's network.

This knowledge is handy since it allows you to avoid paying extra charges from calling a mobile phone number under a different network, thus letting you maximize the call and text promos under your preferred network. 

Additionally, if I am roaming abroad, say in Europe, then knowing my local mobile operator can help me get better rates on calls and data usage. Knowing your own carrier allows you to avoid being charged extra fees when making international calls. It helps you save money by avoiding long distance charges.
