Globe 3G: 5 Pesos Internet and Disconnection Charges

Relevance: 78%      Posted on: May 9, 2008

Globe 3G may be facing some serious issues this month due to frequent disconnection charges on their 5 Peso per 15 minute rates. Last month, Globe introduced time-based charging on top of the previous kilobyte rates -- a pleasant development to loyal Globe subscribers. Problem though is the arbitrary disconnection/reconnection charges. A friend who's a long-time Globe subscriber recounted that she got a call from Globe's Customer Support telling her that her accounts has an outstanding balance of Php4,900+. More than half of these charges are from her mobile internet usage. She was informed that for a couple of weeks…

Globe 3G: 5 Pesos for 15 minutes!

Relevance: 67%      Posted on: April 5, 2008

This just in. Got a message from someone inside Globe telling me Globe GPRS/3G/HSDPA (myGlobe GPRS and myGlobe Internet on your mobile phone settings) has moved to time-based charging. That's 5 pesos for every 15 minutes! It's about time. To activate this new charging scheme, just send text "time" to 1111. You will then get a confirmation that you'll be charged Php5.00 for every 15 minutes (activation within 1 hour), otherwise you'll still be billed on a per KB basis. Been telling them to shift to this price scheduling for the longest time. Weird thing is, subscribers can actually go…

Relevance: 60%      Posted on: July 5, 2010

The introduction of triple SIM phones this year made me wonder how far dual-SIM phones have already penetrated mobile phone market. I'd like to do a poll on that just to see how's the handset mix look like. So out poll asks -- Do you use Dual-SIM Phones? Here's the options you can choose from: Yes, I use dual-SIM phones. No, but I use 2 or more phones at a time. Don't need one. I only have 1 number. I'm on triple SIM now. What's a dual-SIM phone? I've added this in our poll at the sidebar on the right.…

Why mobile phones have no AM Radio?

Relevance: 54%      Posted on: October 15, 2008

About a year ago, I asked the guys at Nokia Singapore why they don't have AM radio tuners to pair with the millions of FM tuner capable phones they develop. I thought the answer was in the north of physics, something that had to do with frequency modulation and amplitude modulation. I guessed wrong. The truth is, it's largely got to do with market demand. Who would want to use AM radio on their phones? I told them, AM radio is still hot and raging in the Philippines especially with regular folks that listen to news. The other day, one…

Why the resistance to dual-SIM mobile phones?

Relevance: 54%      Posted on: March 29, 2010

For some time now, dual SIM phones have been hot among the masses. Majority of the handsets that have these are China phones or locally branded ones like MyPhone, Cherry Mobile or Torque. I actually wrote a similar entry last year -- Why Dual-SIM phones aren’t picking up? I remember, about 8 year ago, people would go to Greenhills and have their Nokia phones converted to dual SIM phones. It involved a replacement part attached at the back of the handset and makes the battery compartment bulging at the back. Then we got them dual-SIM China-phones that are uber-cheap with…

Why Dual-SIM phones aren’t picking up?

Relevance: 54%      Posted on: March 21, 2009

Someone asked me why I don't use dual-SIM phones instead of carrying 2 or 3 phones at a time. I said that if there were only high-end phones that support dual-SIM, I might consider using them. So the question popped up -- why aren't dual-SIM phones picking up? They've been here for years, even started with custom modules for Nokia 5110 and 6110 many years ago (the one that you turn off and on whenever you want to switch active SIM). Even today, there are very few manufacturers and even phone models that support dual-SIM. Of course, that does not…

Nokia responds: Entry into Dual SIM Phones

Relevance: 53%      Posted on: June 15, 2010

We had a couple of interviews with various top executives of Nokia SEA yesterday and one of the number of questions I asked revolved around their introduction of dual/double SIM phones. My questions were worded to the effect -- "why these and why now?". Executives believe they are not really late in getting into the dual SIM market considering that a lot of regions do not favor this kind of market. It's primarily because of telco subsidies and handset exclusivity (and thus, the seemingly limited demand for these types of phones). Likewise, Nokia believes that people who tend to use…
