Compatible Smartphones

DITO uses different hardware for its network, necessitating compatible phones for you to be able to fully maximize their service.

    how about sa tablet? compatible po ba ito sa huawei matepad T8?

    • It could work for data but there’s a big chance you might not be able to access calls and texts since the tablet is not listed as a compatible device.

    • The Samsung Galaxy A20e is not on DITO’s list of compatible phones. You can give it a try. Data and texting will most likely work. Ang likely issue would be baka walang calls. Kailangan ma activate VoLTE for calls. I’ve read people having issues sa calls.

  2. My phone Huawei Y9 Prime is showing SOS only. The area has dito coverage, I’m not sure how to fix this.

        Hi, my phone is one of the list for compatible phones which is vivo y20i. I can use the data and for texting. But i can’t use the call. What to do?
        Thanks

        • Try activating VoLTE. My friends had similar issues. Turn on mobile data, then turn on VoLTE. Test if you can make calls then.
