    In 2017 the Philippines National Telecommunications Commission announced a change in the country's numbering plan which was implemented on October 6, 2019.

    The change consists in migrating all 7 digit landline telephone numbers within area code 2 (two) to 8 digits, meaning that an extra digit has been added to all these numbers.

    Here are the 3 situations encountered:

    1. 4XX XXXX becomes 34XX XXXX
    2. 5XX XXXX becomes 75XX XXXX
    3. 9XX XXXX becomes 89XX XXXX

    Area code 2 covers the following areas: Metro Manila, the Rizal Province and the cities of Bacoor and San Pedro.

    Example:

    An international call from the United States to an older Manila landline of the format 5XX XXXX would therefore be today 011 63 2 75XX XXXX (the old dialing sequence would have been 011 63 2 5XX XXXX).

    More information about the change
