This was shared to us by the folks from Globe Telecom last February 14 but I completely forgot about it. I only remembered it again when I used the prepaid SIM card they gave me to test on the HTC Titan.
In any case, the concept is pretty simple — you get an SMS alert every time you use your load credits.
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 load credits all the time.
The service stems from issues that prepaid load credits mysteriously disappear (folks call it “nakaw load” for years now) and though investigations don’t normally end well for the subscriber, this Load Watch might just help prevent it from happening.
At the moment, this is only available for prepaid subscribers (it is free and automatic so you don’t have to activate anything).
Anybody else notice this service on their prepaid accounts? Do you see this as a useful feature?
