What is Globe’s Magic IP and why is it free?

Been getting a lot of comments from readers regarding this certain Magic IP from Globe which allegedly allows users to be able to still surf the net even with zero load. So I sent out a message to @talk2globe if they knew anything about it.

All I got was this answer — @talk2globe: Nope! We don’t have or offer such service. .

However a number of Tweeps replied back to me saying it is possible.

I did a little bit of digging, found a number of instructions in the forums and tried it.

After a couple of tries, I was able to surf the net using a Globe Tattoo and a Globe SIM card with no load in it except for a few hundred free SMS credits. Nope, I’m not teaching you how to do it but if you’re motivated enough, a few Google searches will point you to the right direction.

This is because you can still dial-in and connect to their network without any load credits (what Globe does is cap your bandwidth down to 0kbps until you reload).

It looks like the Magic IPs are a block of IP addresses you can use as a proxy to bypass the bandwidth cap set by the network (or something to that effect).

Turns out that this loophole has been out as early as last year (some says it’s been there since 2009). The Magic IPs actually expire or is eventually blocked by Globe’s network engineers every month so users will look for a new set of IPs.

What’s actually more interesting is that a number of enterprising people who have early access to new sets of Magic IPs would actually peddle them — all for a very low price of Php200. Been seeing comments from some of them here but ignored it for the longest time.

    you can’t blame people who uses this trick and legal users cannot blame those people who uses it illegally, if there is anyone to blame, it’s globe’s “engineer” – a bad network design is definitely the cause of this problem. so if you are a legal users and affected by the illegals, you better go to globe and give them a crap about it.

    smart service has also a flaw of its own and i won’t tell you how to achieve it.

    3. Hindi natin masisisi kung bakit nagkaganun life natin.
    4. We cant predict or see our future, minsan nasa taas kana may magpapabagsak pa sayo.
    5. Sa usapan ng ilegal yan, oo ilegal nga, pero sa una palang tanung ko sanyo lahat to bakit OPEN ang mga magic na yan?bakit meron nyan?

    Ano ang connect ng 1 to 6 na sinabi ko? Wala lang, ako alam ko mga magic ip at the same time legit subscriber ako at plan/promo user ng dalawang network.

    Kaya tinuruan ko sila tungkol sa ip na yan, nakatulong eh, hindi ko naman sila matutulungan lahat sa legal na way,di ko kaya madami eh madami ang hirap sa pagaaral lalo pag college, na kailangan talaga ng internet, kahit nga HS eh dahil sumasabay mga school sa pag angat ng technology ang problem ang karamihan di makasabay dyan dahil sa kahirapan,, ten times ko inisip bago ko ituro ang mga yan sa mga estudyante, inisip ko nalang na cp naman madalas gamit ng mga students kaya di ganu makaka apekto sa network, tama ding pagnanakaw nga yan, pero kung kayo nasa kalagayan ko na hangad lang naman ay tumulong at sa dami di mu kaya lahat tulungan anu gagawin nyo? Isipin ko legit subscriber ako, anu ba naman yung ishare ko ang sa tingin ko makakahelp sa nangangailangan kaysa mapariwara sila mapuwersa gumawa ng maaaring ikamatay ikasira ng buhay ng mga students na natulungan ko for FREE,wala ako hininging kapalit…, mas di ko maaatim na mapwersa sila mag prosti o mas gumawa ng mas bawal at mas delikado o mas ilegal pa sa magic ip..
