As expected, Globe Telecom is finally offering their Duo service to prepaid subscribers. The catch though is that you need to get a new Duo Special SIM Pack which costs Php45 (old prepaid SIM not supported).
Starting June 5, 2009, the Duo Prepaid service may be availed from Globe Business Centers and partner retailers in Metro Manila. In Cebu, it’s been available since May 25.
The Duo rates for prepaid is higher compared to the postpaid service: Php125 for 5 days and Php350 for 14 days. To activate your DUo SIM pack, just text “DUO MM 125” or “DUO MM 350” and send to 8888.
Upon activation, the respective amounts (Php125 or Php350) will be deducted from the prepaid load and the subscriber gets a DUO landline number.
For prepaid users, the subscription must remain active in order for you to retain your Duo number. After 30 days of non-subscription, your Duo service will expire and the number will be de-activated/re-claimed. You will be assigned a new Duo number if you re-activate later on.
