Where can you find DITO Sim Cards?

The sim is in the company’s official store on Lazada and Shopee. You can also find the sim in the physical store of the country and retailers’ shops. Make sure that the mobile phone that you are using is compatible with the DITO SIM. 

How to find that your phone is compatible with DITO?

Part of such a launch is their “Welcome Proposal,” which also gives a subscription with unlimited messages and calls within their network and everyone’s new favourite, internet service, for a short time. Nevertheless, as part of the relaunch, the company also released a list of cell devices suitable to their offering.

To get the DITO SIM and subscribe to the DITO network, You must have a phone compatible with the sim. Only some phones are consistent with the sim, and only some brands are compatible with the cellular signal. This is to inform you that the current DITO network only supports 4G LTE or 5 G-enabled phones. The device you use must be under the range of DITO coverage, and the improved LTE mode setting should be on.

  1. Go to the GSMArena website.
