Mobile phone area codes in the Philippines are composed of three digits and always start with the number 9. Originally, there were only three prefixes or area codes used for mobile phones: 917 for Globe Telecom, 918 for Smart Communications and 973 for Express Telecom, the three existing mobile companies at the time. As service grew rapidly throughout the 1990s and even until today, existing codes have been exhausted and new codes have been added to fulfill demand. [Source: Wikipedia]

Telephone numbers in Saudi Arabia

and Mobile Telecom Providers


Question: What are the telecom companies providing mobile phone services in Saudi Arabia?

There are three: the Saudi Telecom Company (STC), UAE-based Mobily and Zain of Kuwait.

Q: Why is it important to know these mobile number prefixes?

You could save a lot of money by knowing such mobile number prefixes. Assuming that you have SIM cards from each of the three telecom companies, if you want to call a number that starts with 058, you know it is a Zain number and you would most likely get lower charges if you use your Zain number to call that, than if you use an STC or Mobily number.

Every now and then, each telecom company comes out with packages that include free SMS or free calls as long as you are calling a number within the same network.

The country’s country calling code is +966. Saudi Arabia’s numbering plan is the following:
