How to Recognise a 9mobile Number

9mobile numbers start with a group of 4 unique numbers. These numbers are categorized into 5 different numbers which start with either 08 or 09.

In a nutshell, every 9mobile/Etisalat number must start with either of these 5 numbers. Here is the list of the numbers that 9mobile starts with and how to recognize them.

  • 0809
  • 0817
  • 0818
  • 0909
  • 0908

Apart from these numbers, there are exceptions to numbers that port or switch from other networks to 9mobile. For instance, if a former MTN subscriber ports to 9mobile, they will still maintain their previous numbers (which can start with 0803, 0806, 0703, 0706, etc).

Therefore, it is difficult to recognize this type of number (that port) from a mere outlook.

In addition, a 9mobile number could carry the Nigerian country code (+234). In this case, the number will not start with a zero. For example, if your number or any other 9mobile number is 08090000300, it will become +2348090000300 (without the first zero) when the country code is added.
