it's quite hard to know which telco a certain number is in now, before if the third number if 5,6,or 7, it's a globe, 2 or 3 is sun, and 8,9,0,and 1 is smart

now there's no easy way to tell...

^I agree and that really sucks. That's also the reason why I only use one number and why I don't get persuaded to get another network number.

Kinda OT: I find that practice unprofessional I especially hate it when I text a number, and the other person replies with a different one.

^I only text one or two. If he/she has more than two numbers, I try to miss call the number. If it rings, I text it.

the problem is if that person claims he/she was not able to read your message because he/she left the phone at home.

worse, he/she replies with chikka (does this still exist?) and you accidentally reply.

Happens to me quite often, specially when I'm late for a meeting or preoccupied with a project.

I only do this if I'm having problems with the number receiving the message... but I never used Chikka (mainly because I, myself, find it irritating)

the only reason I maintain contact numbers from the 3 telcos - some clients requested them...  :angry:

what me and my friends do before with chikka is we always inform each other if we are using chikka.  madali lang naman maglagay sa huli ng txt ng word na CHIKKA.  but nowadays hindi na ata uso chikka kasi meron nang sun cellular na unli txt

saw this on several fb posts and wiki

Globe Telecom: 905, 906, 915, 916, 917, 926, 927, 935, 936, 937, 996, 997, 817
Next Mobile: 979
Red Mobile: 938 (Smart)
Smart Communications: 907, 908, 909, 910, 912, 918, 919, 920, 921, 928, 929, 930, 938, 939, 946, 947, 948, 949, 989, 999, 813
Sun Cellular: 922, 923, 932, 933, 934, 942, 943

so i guess it still somewhat holds true that 5, 6 and 7 are for globe, 8, 9 and 0 are for smart.

speaking of chikka, i only use it when i'm roaming. otherwise there's wifi and viber for calling family members.
