How To Determine If A Number Is From Globe, Smart, or Sun Subscriber?

Are you Having a hard time guessing if someone texted you is from a SMART, GLOBE or SUN Cellular subsciber? Unknowingly sending SMS or calling numbers that belong to a different network carrier and you're on a pre-paid promo forfeiting the free texts/calls?

Well, thanks to my friends/classmates who are currently/previously working in these Big 3 Telecommunication Company. According to them, there is the best and easiest way to determine SMART, GLOBE and SUN Cellular number.

First, look at the 4th digit of the mobile number with the format like this 09xx.

Example #1: 091815092169

For example #1, the 4th digit is eight (8) which means from Smart Network.

Example #2: 09171234567

For example #2, the 4th digit is seven (7) which means from Globe Network.

Example #3: 09221234567

For example #3, the 4th digit is two (2) which means from Sun Cellular Network.
Please refer to the table below for the 4th digit network identification:
Sun Cellular: 2 & 3 (note: there's a 0912 prefix from Talk N Text, therefore, Sun numbers should have a prefix of 0922)
Globe: 5, 6 & 7
Smart: 8, 9, 0 & 1
