DITO SIM Registration

DITO Telecommunity has implemented a straightforward process for SIM registration. This act aims to promote accountability and provide authorities with necessary tools to detect and stop criminal activities such as text scams, cybercrimes, and terrorism committed through telecommunications services.

Who Needs to Register?

All new and existing mobile phone users are required to register their SIM cards. New DITO subscribers must register to activate their SIM cards, while existing prepaid and post-paid users will be given 180 days or 6 months from the effectivity of the law to register their SIM cards. Failure to register will result in the deactivation of the SIM and possible penalties.

How to Register Your DITO SIM Card

  1. Download the DITO app.
  2. Click the banner that says “register your SIM”.
  3. Fill out the form with your personal information (Full Name, Date of Birth, Sex, Present/Official Address).
  4. Enter your mobile number to get your OTP.
  5. Attach a government-issued identification card (ID).
  6. Take a photo with your ID.
  7. Click submit.

Subscribers who successfully register their SIM cards will receive 2GB bonus data. The online registration is free of charge and prioritizes the security of every subscriber’s personal information. The data collected from this registration process is treated as confidential unless disclosure is required or permitted by law.

How to Activate Your DITO SIM

Activating your DITO SIM card is a simple process that can be completed in a few steps. This guide will walk you through the process to ensure a smooth activation experience.

Step 1: Insert Your DITO SIM Card

Start by inserting your new DITO SIM card into your mobile phone. The SIM card comes in all three sizes: standard, micro, and nano, to fit whatever size your phone uses.

Step 2: Activate Your SIM Card

To activate your DITO SIM card, you can do one of the following:

  • Send an SMS to any valid mobile number.
  • Call any valid mobile number.
  • Turn on your mobile data.

Once you’ve done one of these actions, DITO will know that you’re now using the SIM and will activate your number. You will receive a welcome message from DITO via SMS, which also includes your initial password for the app.

Step 3: Set Up the DITO App

After activating your SIM, you’ll need to set up the DITO app. Here’s how:

  • Download and install the DITO app from the Google Play Store for Android devices or the Apple App Store for iPhones.
  • Open the app and tap “Sign in with your DITO number.”
  • Enter your DITO phone number and the initial password sent in the welcome message.
  • Confirm that you’ve read DITO’s Data Privacy Statement and Terms and Conditions.
  • Enjoy the app

DITO Compatible Phones

DITO Telecommunity has made strides in ensuring that a wide range of phones are compatible with their network. This is to ensure that as many users as possible can enjoy the benefits of their services.

Android Phones

Most of the devices that are compatible with DITO are powered by Android. This includes mobile powerhouses such as SamsungNokiaOppoVivoRealme, and Xiaomi.

Local Brands

Handsets built by Philippine-based manufacturers, notably Cherry Mobile and MyPhone, are also compatible with DITO.

5G Compatible Phones

For those looking to make the most of DITO’s next-gen VoLTE technology, there are a number of 5G-enabled phones that are compatible with DITO. These include phones from brands like HuaweiInfinixnarzoNubiaOppoPOCOrealmeSamsungTecnoVivoXiaomi, and ZTE.


As of now, it appears that iPhones are not listed as compatible with DITO. This could be due to a variety of factors, including differences in network technologies or frequency bands used by iPhones and DITO. It’s always a good idea to check with DITO or Apple for the most current compatibility information.

What Makes a Phone Compatible?

A phone’s compatibility with a network depends on whether it can operate on the same frequency bands that the network uses. Different networks use different frequency bands, and phones need specific hardware to be compatible with these frequencies.

In addition, the phone must be unlocked to be used with a different network. An unlocked phone is not tied to a specific carrier and can be used with any carrier that operates on a compatible frequency.
