En-gee that was a technical error for TM… the TM Management wasn’t solve that problem… MakakaSEND ka to 09777******* if meron kang at least piso… Before babawasan tayo ng load kahit naka text promo …pero inireklamo ko sa kanila …. UNTIL NOW d pa naSOLVE ng TM,,, 2015 pa yan,,,, sa GLOBE naSOLVED AGAD 1 week after inireklamo ko din kasi hindi magpapass through yung text messages to 09 triple7 ONLY….
          HINDI LAHAT ng 0977 en-gee,,,, 09 triple7 lang…. yung 09770,09771,09772,09773,09774,09775,09776,09778,09779 makakatext ka!!!

      1. Nextmobile is a subsidiary of GLOBE… Nextmobile used the prefixes of GLOBE… ALSO EXTEL newly acquired by GLOBE….that would include 0973 &0974 as Globe… 0973-0979 are GLOBE ACCESS CODES,,,,

      1. EXTELCOM 0973 & 0974 wasn’t used by GLOBE right now but the EXPRESS TELECOM was acquired by GLOBE… HINDI PA LANG GINAGAMIT ng GLOBE ang 0974 & 0975

        1. The No. 0983 is a prefix of Smart.

    1. Hi Bryan,
      The list above contains the prefixes for Globe & TM. As of now, the only way to tell whether a number is Globe or TM is to contact Globe customer care. You can do this via their Facebook Page. They have to check the number in their database to find out exactly which of the two networks it belongs to. So for purely Globe prefixes, you’ll need to ask. But most famously, 0917 is known as the original Globe prefix. Hope this helps!

  1. Hi, Thank you for your posting this. I am an American moving permanently to the Phil by March 15. In understanding your telecom system I have two questions.

    1) Number portability; In USA our phone # stays with us. So if we move to a different carrier such as from Globe to Smart we can take our phone number with us. Is that the procedure in the Phil?
    2) Can Globe customers call Smart customers and can cell call fixed base lines or VIOP’s? I heard that is a no? So if thats true can one cell carrier only call the same network or is it possible to call ANY number in any carrier at any time?

    Thanks…..

    1. Hi Johnny,

      Welcome to the Philippines! We’re glad our post could help you out! To answer your question:

      1. As of now, numbers are not portable. However, this could be a possibility in the future as the government is working on passing a law to allow number portability.
      2. Yes, Globe users can call Smart users or any other carrier at a fixed rate per minute. There are load promos that make it cheaper to call users on the same network. As for cell calling fixed base lines or VIOP’s, we haven’t encountered this yet but most carrier offer affordable data packages that allow you to make calls over selected apps like Viber, Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp.

      We’ve also posted your concern on our forum so that the PreFIX PH Community can comment on this and provide you with their help and knowledge. You can access it via this link.

      Thanks!

    1. Hello Clarrise! Take note that you can purchase a prepaid SIM in any retailer stores, convenient stores, or network’s outlet with a low price, while postpaid SIM is being issued by Network’s provider shop with Monthly Service Fee.

      If you have any more questions regarding this, you can follow up in this discussion from our community page, or better yet, post one of your own! We’ll get back to you as soon as possible!

  2. Hi,
    This is very useful, but I think this is better if you have breakdown of networks, such as Smart Prepaid, Smart Postpaid, TNT, Smart Bro, Sun Prepaid, Sun Postpaid, Smart Infinity, etc. under Smart, and Globe Prepaid, Globe Postpaid, Globe Platinum, TM under Globe.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Shelena,

      Unfortunately, based on our research, there is no definite way to determine whether a number is postpaid or prepaid. We hope to maybe get some concrete feedback from the telcos about this in the future. So keep posted 🙂

    1. Hi there! 0977 is a prepaid number and a TM former Nextel.

      If you have any more questions you can visit our PreFIX Community Forum to browse some of our discussions that might help you, or better yet, post one of your own!

    1. Hello Paul! We have already put 0966 in the list. You may check it out. Thanks!

  3. Is the mixed up prefixes for both the Globe & Smart families intended to confuse us customers? The net effect of all these mixed prefixes is to use up all the money that people loaded in their prepaid cell phones. Why can’t they put some order to the system (ex. Globe family gets the 09 prefix while Smart family gets the 08 prefix). That is how it’s done in orderly societies/countries. Could it be another form of corruption; & to bilk poor Juan dela Cruz of his hard earned money? Still, thank you for all you helpful efforts; I truly appreciate it. Thank you po uli.

  4. *** DO YOU HAVE PROOF stating 0913 0914 0940 0970 0981 0989 0992 are SMART ACCESS CODE NUMBERS??? and 0944 for SUN???*** ,,,, that compiled access numbers stated haven’t USED!!!
    BUT GLOBE ACCESS CODE NUMBERS THAT HAVE BEEN USED TODAY WERE NOT INCLUDED… bias kasi kayo makaSMART EDITOR dito kaya kung ano anu nilalagay nyo sa SMART…..
    FOR YOUR INFORMATION
    ACCESS CODES NUMBER:
    0965 & 0966 HAVE BEEN USED ALREADY by GLOBE ohhh san na yun BAKIT di nyo inilagay dyan???

    SINCE I SAW A PATTERN CONTRADICTING TO YOUR COMPILED ACCESS NUMBERS:
    I AM AGAINST YOUR COMPILED ACCESS NUMBERS STATED 0913 0914 0940 0944 0970 0981 0989 0992!!!

    ((( I GUESS 0914 0944 for GLOBE but since 4 was not good for CHINESE they skipped that ACCESS NUMBERS!!! IMPOSSIBLE isa lang sa GLOBE sa 094* ,,, 0945 lang ba??? dapat may kasama yan so since 0944 is katabi ng 0945 it means that would be GLOBE!!!

    PAG ARALIN NYONG MABUTI YUNG INILAGAY DITO…..

    YOUR NOT BASING THE REALITY!!!

  5. Hi! May I know what network is 0966? I can’t call the number using Globe; should I assume that it’s Smart? Thanks!

    1. Hello Joyce. Thank you for your question. If someone receives a call from someone else, you will not be charge unless you are on roaming. On the other hand if you’re a Globe subscriber and call these networks: Extelcom, Next Mobile and Cherry Mobile charging will depend on the promo you availed. If you availed a promo with unlimited calls to Globe, TM and Cherry, it does not have any charges. In regards with Supersurf promo. It is guided by fair use policy that has 800 MB daily capping.

  8. when i was asked to input my globe prepaid on Globe website to claim the free data, the number i gave was not recognized as prepaid number. My number start with 0995******* and it is a prepaid number. What could be the problem? Thanks.

    1. Hi Rodel

      If your prepaid number is working on their services like promo registration, it has signal, it can send sms and can make calls, then maybe their website has lapse(s) or maybe your number is still not registered on their website as one of their numbers.
