Had a short meeting with reps of Globe this afternoon to talk about their My Fully Loaded Plan, a new postpaid scheme that allows subscribers to choose consumable amount, up to 9 freebies and a selection of handsets.
Since June 29, Globe introduced a new set of base plans, starting with consumable amounts.
Step 1: Pick a Plan
Plan 299 – Php299 consumable per month
Plan 499 – Php499 consumable per month
Plan 999 – Php999 consumable per month
Plan 1799 – Php1799 consumable per month
Plan 2499 – Php2499 consumable per month
Plan 3799 – Php3799 consumable per month
Each plan has a corresponding number of freebies (up to 9) that you can choose from among 6 choices.
Step 2: Pick a Monthly Freebie
A. Free Calls (10 minutes) and Free SMS (200) to Globe/TM number.
B. Free Calls (5 minutes) and Free SMS (25) to other Networks
C. Free IDD Calls (20 minutes) and Free SMS (10) to 10 countries*
D. Free Mobile Internet Surfing (3 hours)
E. Free Super One Unlimited Call & Text to 1 Globe/TM Number
F. Free Super Surf
Plan 299 – Pick 1 Freebies between A to D
Plan 499 – Pick 2 Freebies between A to D
Plan 999 – Pick 3 Freebies between A to E
Plan 1799 – Pick 5 Freebies between A to E
Plan 2499 – Pick 7 Freebies between A to E
Plan 3799 – Pick 9 Freebies between A to E (or get F only)
The Freebies are recurring every month and you can combine any of the choices. For example, if I am on Plan 1799 — I can pick 2 x A, 2 x E and 1 x C. Or, I can just pick 5 x A to get 50 free minutes and 1,000 free SMS.
The catch here is that you can actually change your freebies every month. All you need to do is call the hotline and ask that you want to change your monthly freebies to another set you like.
Step 3: Pick a Free Handset
You can get a Nokia 1680 on Plan 299 or get an iPhone 3GS on Plan 3799.
Here are some real-world scenarios for a My Fully Loaded Plan:
Plan 299 = Php299 usable credits + 200 SMS + 10 minutes call [Freebie A] = ~ Php560 value
Plan 499 = Php499 usable credits + 2 * (200 SMS + 10 minutes call) [2 * Freebie A] = ~Php1,000 value
Plan 999 = Php999 usable credits + 3 * (200 SMS + 10 minutes call) [3 * Freebie A] = ~Php1,800 value
The My Fully Loaded Plans are basically your G-Flex Plan + Freebies.
Globe has started migrating to this new Subscription Plans and offer it to new and existing subscribers. One can stick with their existing plan or move into this new plan anytime.
* Countries include US, Canada, Guam, Hawaii, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Thailand
** Plan 299 and Plan499 can get (E) Super One using the Php100 consumable amount.
