i was able to retrieve my old number from globe. apparently, they can replace a lost sim card even if it's prepaid. so, yay! i got my old number back and will start using it tonight.
sa mga nakakaalam ng luma kong number, please do text me so i can save your numbers. dun naman sa mga nasendan ko ng new number ko (the last two digits are 44), please email me so i can give you my old number.
thanks! and a pleasant evening to everyone.
