Globe starts selling Prepaid Nano-SIM for Php40

A couple of weeks ago, Globe mentioned that they will start selling the nano-SIM this month. True enough, the prepaid nano-SIMs are now available in select Globe stores nationwide.

For the meantime, only the prepaid nano-SIMs are being sold by Globe in their stores. The postpaid version of the nano-SIM is also available for new or existing subscribers for free.

(Disclosure: We’ve already requested our own postpaid nano-SIM replacement at no additional cost.)

Here’s a copy of the press release they sent:

Revolutionary Nano-SIMs now available in Globe Stores. Globe Telecom has officially offered the revolutionary Nano-SIM in its Globe Stores, way ahead of competing telco brands. The Nano-SIMs are new generation subscriber identity module (SIM) cards for the latest generation of smartphones running on the most modern mobile network technologies.

The Nano-SIM measures 12.3 millimeters wide, 8.8 millimeters high and 0.67 millimeters thick, or about 40% smaller than the Micro-SIM. “We have ordered as much as 5x more Nano-SIMs than our usual SIM orders as we anticipate high demand from our subscribers, especially when smartphones running on Nano-SIMs are offered to the market,” said Martha Sazon, Head of Globe Postpaid.

The Globe Nano-SIM is free for new and existing postpaid subscribers while new prepaid subscribers can avail of the Nano-SIM for only P40. Shown in photo is Globe subscriber Maria Salud Sison receiving her Nano-SIM from Globe store specialist Gilbert Calalay.

We tried looking for the availability of the nano-SIM in Globe’s Online Store but the site isn’t updated yet.

  1. Tanong ko lang Sir yuga/Guys, kapag meron kana nano sim, san mo magagamit??

    • nano rin cguro laki ng utak mo… magbasa ka nga. Tanong ka ng tanong.

    • Ang point ko is wala pa naman smartphone dito sa pinas na ginagamitan ng nano.

      For sure nano din ang ari mo!

    • May mga bibili kasi ng iPhone 5 sa ibang bansa at dadalhin dito ng mas maaga kaya kailangan nila ng nano sim para magamit nila yung phone dito.

    • it’s for Iphone5 and ipad mini.. available in apple retailer stores here in the philippines.. pwede mo rin itong bilhin via internet

      Pinag aawayan ang nano sim nuon (9-24-2012), COMMON na ngayon (10-4-2015) history

  2. nano sim… sa ngaun iPhone 5 pa lang

  3. sir abe, aandar ba ang normal sim/micro sim kung i ccut xa into a nano sim size?

  4. NeutralGuy

    Wow, that’s a super high anticipation. Smartphones with nano sims would probably start appearing mid 2013, except for iPhone 5.

  5. Really??

    “revolutionary” nano-sims?

    It’s basically like calling a folded paper “revolutionary” >_>

    It’s basically the same as the original, they just made it a tad smaller =p

    And for the record, I’m not against nano-sims… I just hate it when people overly hypes something just to sell something -_-

  6. LOL.. even though you have nano sim.. i doubt you can use it.. cause i think only iphone 5 use nano sim.. well if you already have ip5 which is still not available here in ph that will be a different story..

  7. gara naman. isang nano sim dito sa Singapore makakabili ng 30 na nano sim sa Globe!
