How to avoid confusion in mobile prefix

Many mobile prefixes are already out in the market and ready to use by our avid consumers. Many of friends has 3 sims to reach all their friends and loved ones. So confusion with mobile prefixes is cannot be avoided. I tried to avoid or assume the prefix I'm thinking is correct because you may not know if I am correct or not.


So what I did is that. Everytime I register a mobile number I see to it I ended it with a remarks and easy to understand. See Sample below:

0922 - Sun or Sn
0927 - Globe or G
0926 - Touch Mobile or TM
0918 - Smart or Sm
0910 - Talk N Text or TnT

In my case, I make it more simplier since Globe and TM are once telecom. I generalized it as "G". Then Smart and Talk N Text are same telecom also. I marked it as "Sm". But in case of Sun Cellular which stands solely "Sn" would be perfect for the shortcut.

Now that my mobile number has its own shortcuts. I can easily determine which is Globe and which are Smart number.

 I also used letter "L" which stand for landline and letter "R" for roaming number of my friends to identify what number should I used to contact them.

You may apply this tip and share it with your friends too.
