Relevance: 97%      Posted on: March 1, 2012

This was shared to us by the folks from Globe Telecom last February 14 but I completely forgot about it.

So when you make a phone call, once you hang up, Globe will send you an SMS how much load you have left. This will give you an idea of your running balance and be updated of your…

Since the DTI has successfully implemented the removal of expiry dates on gift certificates (GCs), the NTC is now also contemplating to do the same with mobile prepaid load. In an interview with NTC for the GMA 7's SONA episode, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) is stated that they are studying the possibility of removing the expiry date of prepaid load for cellular phones. Once implemented, this could mean that any amount loaded on your prepaid SIM card will never expire unless you use them or throw the SIM card away.

Relevance: 80%      Posted on: September 21, 2014
