Globe offers iPad 3G Plan 999 w/ micro-SIM

Despite the iPad not yet released by Apple in the Philippines, Globe Telecom is already offering an iPad 3G Data Plan. Together with the new micro-SIM card, get an unlimited 3G data plan for only Php999 per month.

Of course, Globe does not sell the iPad 3G yet but expects that a lot of people have already bought one and looking for unlimited mobile internet plan.


The Globe Tattoo iPad 3G Plan answers that growing demand and for Php999 a month, you get unlimited internet on your iPad 3G.

For those looking for a prepaid solution, Globe is also selling the Tattoo micro SIM for only Php50 in Business Centers. I first broke the story earlier about Globe’s new micro SIM card here.

Update: Looks like we’ll have to wait ’til September for the iPhone 4. Globe Telecom already have micro-SIM cards for the iPhone 4 and is currently offering unlimited data plan for the iPad 3G for Php999/month.

    how different is Globe offering unlimited 3G for iPad and unlimited 3G for non-iPad smartphones? why does it have to be specific-handset? are sim-cards pre-activated to only work with iPad and not otherwise?

    i don’t seem to get the logic behind this 3G unlimited data offer. anybody can care for an explanation?

  7. yuga says:

    @jozzua – same lang din.

    @nexus3g – you can’t use the iPad’s 3G connection to tether to your laptop or PC. That means no bandwidth hungry torrents running 24/7 on the iPad compared to other smartphones connected to a PC.

    Globe is like AT&T

    go figure xD

    I’ve never experienced dropped calls using my iPhone. However, even if i have full 3G signal when I want to do something with my phone connecting to the internet, 3G often dies down and reverts to edge instead. Parang useless minsan na nagkaroon pa ng 3G, ayaw naman pala paaccess.

    How I wish they will also shorten the length of the existing contracts to avail of an upgrade to iPhone 4 this year. If not then I guess I will have to wait for the iPhone 4GSHDKLMNOP next year… or get myself some android (hello froyo) on other networks… or wait for a new webOS, symbian 3, or windows 7 device.

    Of course its up to 2Mbps for Micro SIM Tattoo Prepaid. Maybe the same with Postpaid.

  12. cris says:

    September is quite long to get hold of that iphone 4 locally.

    On the other hand, I’m not sure if it’s just me, but those twitter RTs are quite annoying. They’re like spams or something. Is it possible to hide them?

  13. nightcrawl says:

    @cris couldn’t agree more. so annoying.

    abe, do I have to pay for the device(ipad) or it’s free if avail of the service? thanks!

  14. yuga says:

    @nightcrawl – it’s a postpaid plan without the device.

  15. Wil-J says:

    aww. i thought that the device was also included with the pla… :'( that should have been a very great deal :) if it were included haha

  16. Jiro Yan says:

    Yeah abe, i agree with cris. Twitter RTs are quite annoying.

    for iPad 3G go to greenhills or other retailers sa black market.
    us2ph bad decision to order from them
    almost a month now when June 14 arrives prepaid pa.

    don’t order from them

    not worth it.

    and regarding globe tattoo microsim

    I suggest just cut a smart buddy prepaid sim have the 3G activated., better broadband connection.

    Trust me I a globe postpaid and prepaid user.
    3G phone with crawling 3G speeds, more or dial up.

    They managed to bring the price down to P999 for iPads? That’s “racism” to Blackberry users!

  19. yohan says:

    cool, thank you :)

  20. Paul says:

    I say check the agreement first if it’s really unlimited.

    It wouldn’t be the first time Globe advertised an ‘unlimited’ plan when in fact it has a bandwidth cap.

  21. Martin says:

    i wonder if they’d offer unlimited 3g data plan for regular sims at P999/month.

    any idea?

  22. boo says:

    ang racist. pano na kaming BB users? why are we still on a P1200 unli BB and P1500 unli max?!

  23. aynakolenn says:

    I just recently cut a prepaid globe sim to fit into my ipad 3g and it gets a signal. I configured the APN and i can connect online but it only shows the “edge” symbol. Does it need to be a tatoo globe prepaid sim? or does it take a while before the 3g shows up? My Iphone works fine with 3g showing. and my friends ipad shows 3g.

  24. Tattoo says:

    I used this new product while I was getting tattooed last week and I healed in three days, color is sick
    Tattoo Aftercare

  25. I would still go for traditional laptop than buying this one or probably settle to replica like this IPAD China Made.

  26. Sam says:

    @home made 3G booster – My uncle was naive he was tricked into buying a china replica iPad. Guess what, after a few minutes of using it, it was as hot as an iron. It’ll never be the same. I have an iPad 3G and it’s amazing. Just go for the traditional laptop. Those replicas are useless.

  27. bogart says:
