As a DITO subscriber, it’s a good idea to load your SIM so that you can continue to enjoy the best that DITO has to offer. Fortunately, you have plenty of options when it comes to reloading your DITO account. Aside from the official DITO mobile app, you can load your DITO SIM using GCash, PayMaya and other payment options.
There’s no doubt that DITO Telecommunity has taken the country by storm ever since it commenced operations several months ago. Boasting a formidable array of data plans and promos, DITO offers high-speed Internet connectivity at affordable prices that are suitable for budget-conscious Filipinos. As little as ₱99 will give you 10GB of data, allowing you to enjoy fast mobile Internet from sunrise to sundown.
With such amazing data promos, you wouldn’t want to run out of prepaid load, would you? Imagine being in the middle of a Netflix movie marathon, only to realize that you’ve already exhausted your data allocation. No need to panic, however, because there are several ways to load your DITO SIM without ever leaving your couch. No need to rush to the nearby sari-sari store when you can reload your DITO account directly on your mobile phone.
The best and recommended way to load your DITO SIM is through the official DITO app. With the DITO mobile app, you can easily purchase prepaid load with a few taps of the screen, and you don’t even have to manually input your mobile number. The DITO app also allows you to conveniently check your load and data balance, subscribe to promos, contact support, and many more.
But if you don’t want to use the DITO app for some reason, you can still load your DITO SIM, thanks to mobile wallets like GCash. If you’re a frequent GCash user, it’s probably easier and quicker to reload your DITO account since you can use your wallet balance and add money if needed.
So without further ado, let’s go through the different ways and steps to load your DITO SIM using the DITO mobile app and e-wallets such as GCash and PayMaya.
