    1. Hi Gerardo,

      0977 is under Next Mobile. Did you make sure you have enough load or the right promo to contact the number? Thanks!

        1. Hi Rndll,

          Most of Globe’s load promos apply to even their subtelcos such as Next Mobile which 0977 is under, unless otherwise indicated in their service message. Hope this helps. Thanks!

    2. 0977 is formerly NEXTEL but now has been utilized by GLOBE


      Here are the lists of NEXTEL 0977 0978 0979 that’s SMART cannot produced sim cards under digit 0978 0979

      SAME with 0907 0924 0925 0934 0946 0947
      because these access codes have been assigned to SMART & SUN

      1. So far, yes. But we can’t confirm 100%. You can contact Smart via their Facebook page to ask them to check the complete number in their system.

    3. 0900-0906 GLOBE or TM
      0907-0913 SMART or TNT

    1. Hi Jam,

      Prefix 0903 doesn’t currently belong to any of the networks we’ve posted above. We’ll update the list as soon as new prefixes come in. Thanks!

      1. Did smart released that sim card already?????
        yes probably SMART coz GLOBE used 0955 &0956 maybe 0954 &0953 also GLOBE

  1. While the prefix numbers are grouped according to carrier, it is not numerically arranged, hence there is a great difficulty in finding the desired prefix number. Hope you correct this. Thank you.

  2. Hi, where network does NEXTMOBILE, CHERRY MOBILE ABSCBN & EXTELCOM belongs? Is it for trinet for Smart/tnt/sun or Globe/TM? TY

    1. Hi Ondo,

      Cherry Mobile, Next Mobile, and ABS-CBN Mobile are under Globe. Extelcom does not seem to affiliated with either Smart or Globe based on our references. Hope that helps! Thanks!

    2. GLOBE NETWORKS have
      Brand names:
      ABS CBN
      and recently EXPRESS TELECOM
      0973 & 0974 have been acquired by GLOBE TELECOM

    1. Hi mark,

      Next mobile is a subtelco of Globe which is why it may be identified and used with Globe. Thanks for the input!

    2. Previously utilized by NEXTEL or NEXT MOBILE which is a subsidiary of GLOBE TELECOM

      NOW 0977 is GLOBE

      Same with 0999 previously utilized by U-MOBILE now SMART

  3. What does next mobile means. There is a case in which a smart number cannot call my number with prefix 0977.

    1. Hi Lucita,

      Next mobile is a subtelco of Globe which might be the reason why a Smart number can’t contact you. Hope this helps. Thanks!

  4. Wow, dami. Thanks for the info…
    Before its very easy to remember, you just have to remember the FOURTH number 090× 8888888
    If the * is 2 .3 its sun
    If the * is 5,6,7 its globe
    If its 8,9,0,1 its smart.

    But now no more…???

    1. DUE TO INSERTION of SUN CELLULAR there are now differences for the 4th digits , NORMALLY 0924 & 0925 are GLOBE but due to SUN they gave way to SUN CELLULAR but before it has been use by GLOBE POSTPAID 0925

      1. Hi Morsid,
        A number is usually 11 digits. That’s only 9. We can’t possibly tell you what the missing two numbers are.

    1. Hi manix,

      Yep, 0977 under Next is identified with Globe because Next is a subtelco of Globe. Thanks!

    1. Hi Aryana,

      This is our latest so far. We’ll be sure to update the list this year if any changes come up. Thanks!

    1. Hi Iris,

      Based on our references, 0925 belongs to Sun Cellular. We’ll be sure to update or change if anything comes up. Thanks for the input!

      1. NORMALLY 0925 is a GLOBE PREFIX but due to insertion of SUN CELLULAR they gave way to SUN CELLULAR ,,,,, below on the year of 2012,,,, it was used by GLOBE POSTPAID only ,,,,, so SOME 0925 are GLOBE POSTP[AID not totally 0925 belongs to SUN CELLULAR some GLOBE POSTPAID ,,,,, ok?????

  5. Can you Please arrange property the exact mobile number of each network .. Ex. Smart,,globe, TNT, TM,and Sun.. I want to know the right number accordingly for each network.. Thank you

    1. Hi Apolinario,

      We’re glad to hear feedback on how we present our information. It’s currently arranged according to network. Are you having difficulty with how it’s displayed? Any suggestions on how we may improve? Thanks!

        1. Suggest po kng un next mobile, chery mobile at abs cbn ay globe dpat nka linya n cla s globe.. nlito ko kng san b tlga cla kng d ko p nbsa mga comments..tnx po

    1. Hi Harry,

      The Red mobile name is now defunct and is currently called Talk n Text (TNT). Hope this helps! Thanks!

  6. Among the prefix numbers of globe on your list, which one is the latest prefix number of globe? Thank You

    1. Hi LUCAS,

      0955 and 0956 are so far the latest prefix releases of Globe based on our references. Hope this helps. Thanks!

  7. Good day.

    Nice app but it doesn’t show if it’s a Globe or TM number.
    This could be useful for registering at a promo. Globe and TM don’t share same promo, or it have difference in rate.

    1. Hi leo,

      Thanks for bringing this up. We’ll make sure to resolve this error soon. We apologize for any hassle this might have caused. Thank you!

    1. Hi Angelline,

      A subtelco is a telecommunications company that partnered or uses the services of a larger telecommunications company. Next Mobile, ABS-CBN Mobile, and Cherry Prepaid are all subtelcos of Globe. Hope this helps! Thanks.

  8. Hi can i ask if the 748 and 239 is under the globe landlines? If example po naka call and text unli ako for tm and globe po included po ba yung abs cbn mobile don?

    1. Hi Krisrine,
      Based on our references, those numbers are still under Globe Landlines. You may contact Globe to make sure. As for the other concern, Globe’s unli call and text promos don’t always apply to ABSCBN Mobile. Check your load promo to see if it covers the Globe’s subtelcos. Hope this helps!

    1. Hi bobby,

      0954 was previously a Smart number, but it is no longer in use as per our references. Hope this helps. Thanks!

    1. Hi John,

      We currently don’t have 0805 listed under any network in the Philippines. Most of our references link it to prefix numbers of Nigerian networks. We hope this helps. Thanks!

  9. Hi, I am just wondering which provider does mobile prefix 0936 belong to, globe or touch mobile? I’ve been trying to report a continuous deduction of 5 pesos everyday from 2346 from Safari Love which I never subsribed to. It just comes as an ad but with a fee. There’s an instruction to send OFF SAFARI to 2346 but it always fails. I tried calling both globe and touch mobile but the prompt kept saying that my number is invalid. Please help…This is so irritating!

    1. Hi Nilda Encarnacion,

      We’re sorry to hear about the fee deductions. Our references show that 0936 is really under Globe. If calling the network doesn’t help, we suggest personally approaching their customer service centers or to contact their Facebook or website to call their attention on the matter. We hope this helps. Thanks!

  10. Hi, my wife found a cell number on my phonebook named mary ann morales 09860523891
    I explained to her why there is such thing. I said it was only a mock cell number just to rember the name of that person so i put her name on phonebook with a mock or non existing cell number. But she was so angry and dont beleive me.

    Can you guys help me identify this cell number as non existing number. I want to justify this to my wife.

    Thats all and i look forward for your response.Thank you

    1. Hi Jeffrey Villanueva,

      We’re sorry to hear about that. Besides just outright saying that 0986 is not a prefix listed under any Philippine network, you may download the PreFIX PH app on your mobile (Android – http://buff.ly/2vAxz0Z and iOS – http://buff.ly/2vAC9MQ ). It automatically sorts your contacts by network, and since 0986 is not under any, it will be listed as “Unknown”. For now, that’s all we can suggest. Hope this helps. Thanks!

    1. Hi Patrick,

      The two networks are hardly distinguishable besides TNT having cheaper load promos. In terms of prefix, since Smart and TNT load promos can accommodate both networks, we did not separate the two (same as in Globe/TM). Hope this helps! Thanks.

    1. Hi Kenjie Dela Cruz,

      Yes, so far this is our most updated for 2017. We’ll be sure to dish out an updated list of prefixes once new ones come up. Thanks!

  11. I’ve read all the comments and your replies and I downloaded the prefix ph app and i find it very useful since I’m using globe and sun. I don’t need to search for their prefix if they are globe or smart. I am on a promo on both network and they both don’t have calls to other network. Thank you very much for creating such app.

    1. Hi Nino,

      Thank you for the feedback! We’re glad that the app has made itself useful to you. We hope you enjoy PreFIX more as we roll out new improvements to make it better. Have a great day!

    1. Hi Jr,

      0996 is under Cherry Mobile. Although it is a subtelco of Globe, your plan may not cover it. You may check with your network provider on this. Hope this helps. Thank you!

  12. NORMALLY 0925 is a GLOBE PREFIX but due to insertion of SUN CELLULAR they gave way to SUN CELLULAR ,,,,, below on the year of 2012,,,, it was used by GLOBE POSTPAID only ,,,,, so SOME 0925 are GLOBE POSTP[AID not totally 0925 belongs to SUN CELLULAR some GLOBE POSTPAID ,,,,, ok?????

  13. What is the exact network of this 0977 prefix ? is it globe ? or TM ?
    I need to know in order for me to send promo to that number .

  14. If I purchase a new sim , do you think theres still a sim with a 0917 prefix from globe or the new ones will come with the new prefix 0945 0956??

  15. natawagan ako kanina lang na hindi ko kilala na wrong number daw xa at currently he’s from Mindanao 00995 yung nag appear sa call log ko..

    bakit dalawang zero?

    1. PreFIX PH is a more reliable source to know what networks prefixes belong to. Try downloading the app. It will change your life.

  16. Hi! Im trying to make an international to philippines. The country code is +63 . But whenever the prefix is +63956 or +63955 , it says modify number. You’ve entered the wrong number. Is it because 0955 or 0956 are new prefixes? I was able to make a call for 0916 and 0927 internationally. Thanks

    1. Hi Khyrz!

      Have you tried to check the digits you are dialing? If you are using +63 then it should have 12 digits. If you are using 09 then it should have only 11 digits. If you are still getting an error, you can contact Globe Technical Support Landline (02) 730 1000. Thanks!

    1. Hi Stip!

      Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. We’ve listed the Smart prefixes in the post, sorted by the type of network provider. You may also download our mobile app for free on Android or iOS to check. The links to download are in the post above as well.

    1. Hi Margaux,

    Why is that? Any idea?
    Many thanks

  19. Just letting you know na baliktad yung Numerically arranged at Network Carrier. Nasa network Carrier yung numerically then sa numerically naman yung carrier.

  20. I’m enrolled in Globe to Globe unli call. Why is it that if I call Cherry Mobile I’m being charged for the calls I made. Isn’t it that Cherry mobile is powered by Globe? So as with

    1. Yes, it is but it’s a subtelco. So it’s not owned by Globe. Thus, they may not be included in the unli call promos. Only Globe and TM would be included.

    2. You can call a cherry prepaid 0996 inclusion for promos tri net or quad net… Some TM PROMOS have QUAD-NET please make sure the promo inclusion of CHERRY PREPAID…. and ABS CBN MOBILE

  21. I’m enrolled in Globe to Globe unli call. Why is it that if I call Cherry Mobile I’m being charged for the calls I made. Isn’t it that Cherry mobile is powered by Globe? So as with Next Mobile will I be charge too even if it’s powered by Globe?
    Please help. Thank you.

    1. Hi! Yes, Cherry Prepaid and Next Mobile are powered by Globe BUT they are not included in some of the Globe Promos. They are still individual companies. Globe is just providing them with the network/cell signal services. This does not mean they are included in the promos. If you want to stay updated with prefixes, load promos and more, check out our app. It’s always updated and will tell you what networks are included in the promos so that you don’t waste load.

    1. Hi Kelly, there is no way of knowing just by looking at the number. You can chat to Globe’s customer support on their FB Page and they should be able to help you by checking the number in their system.

    2. GLobe postpaid scattered in different access numbers …. Postpaid & prepaid are inclusive of call& text promo if you are unli call to globe or tm …. You can freely call GLOBE POSTPAID

  22. CAN YOU CHANGE 0977 since this is now GLOBE…… NEXTEL is a subsidiary of GLOBE//// MISTYPE for the network 0914 0940 0944 and some SMART,….. NO ONE HAS APPROVED THAT ACCESS CODES….. 0914 MAYBE GLOBE but THEY have left it since that was 4…..
    another sense is 0940 wasn’t USED by SMART since they released 0939,,,, so possible it would be a SUN and 0944 maybe GLOBE but left by GLOBE since this was 4 SOME SMART ACCESS CODES HAVEN’T PROVEN YET,,,,,,0970,,,0981,,,0989,,&0992

    1. Hi Charlie,

      We’ve posted an updated list for 2018 here and linked to it from the top of the article. We’ve left the 2017 prefix list as it is for historical reasons. We will research the accuracy of the mistypes that you mentioned.

      Again, thank you for your continued effort in helping us improve our content. Due to the amount of feedback we’ve received our content, we have soft-launched a forum here, https://community.prefix.ph/, and are looking for informed individuals as yourself to help us moderate.
