Here in the Philippines, it’s not that easy to determine whether a number is from Globe, Smart, etc. Moreover, it’s actually going to depend on what the prefix is. It is important because if you’re using load or credits without a promotion, it will consume more than a peso from your load. Whereas if you know the number and if you’re aware of the provider, you can decide to avail a promotion to save you load. But the same question remains: How do you know if a number is Smart, Globe, TNT, TM, or Sun?

Why is it important to know from which provider a certain number is from?

Other than the credits, it’s also important to understand that a certain number might be from a different provider and that could cause intermittence in the connection. In addition, it will also be helpful for you to determine whether you need a promotion or you can just use raw credits.

Before, it just used to be Smart Communications and Globe Telecom. Now, there are extensions and additions to them.

Sun Cellular and Talk N’ Text are subsidiaries of Smart Communications. Meaning, if you have a Smart number and you contact them, the amount you need is the same as what you need to contact a Smart subscriber.

Touch Mobile (TM), however, is an extension of Globe. The same rules apply so you don’t need to worry about spending more if you are a Globe subscriber and if you want to contact a TM number. Cherry Mobile Telecom has recently been a part of Globe so it’s technically under one company.

In addition to those, there are also new additions in the game namely: ABS-CBN Mobile, Extelcom, and Next Mobile. Now since these are new players in the telecom industry, we need a bit of information first for us to be sure whether these are under Globe or Smart.

How do I know if a number is Smart, Globe, TM, or SUN?

Although most of us have some sort of an idea on whether a certain number is from a specific provider, it’s still useful to have like a list of the numbers an which provider they are under. With the years of having mobile phones, it’s kind of a simple task to determine whether a number is from Globe, Smart, ABS CBN, etc.
