Globe Duo now available on Prepaid




As expected, Globe Telecom is finally offering their Duo service to prepaid subscribers. The catch though is that you need to get a new Duo Special SIM Pack which costs Php45 (old prepaid SIM not supported).

Starting June 5, 2009, the Duo Prepaid service may be availed from Globe Business Centers and partner retailers in Metro Manila. In Cebu, it’s been available since May 25.

The Duo rates for prepaid is higher compared to the postpaid service: Php125 for 5 days and Php350 for 14 days. To activate your DUo SIM pack, just text “DUO MM 125” or “DUO MM 350” and send to 8888.

Upon activation, the respective amounts (Php125 or Php350) will be deducted from the prepaid load and the subscriber gets a DUO landline number.

For prepaid users, the subscription must remain active in order for you to retain your Duo number. After 30 days of non-subscription, your Duo service will expire and the number will be de-activated/re-claimed. You will be assigned a new Duo number if you re-activate later on.

    Too EXPENSIVE.

  8. sephiroth says:

    wala yatang magsasubscribe dyan dahl biruin m0 125 for 5 days at 350 for 14 days samantalang sa pldt landline plus prepaid ay 300 for 30 days. Kapag hnd nairegister agad ung duo after ng expirati0n ng DUO magchechange ung landline number. Bibili ako nito pero hnd ko isasubscribe sa duo. Akala ko smart ang sugapa heheh

    masyadong mahal yang pakulo ng Globe, mas maganda pa bumili ng dual sim na cellphone (China phone, Hug – still china phone pa rin with warranty and service center or myphone or samsung) tapos lagyan na lang ng different carrier brands (smart, globe, sun, pldt ). Gaya ng sa akin I used a prepaid sun and PLDT landline plus inaabot lang ako ng 600php monthly ko 300 sa pldt and 300 sa sun (ginamit ko yung mga unlimited promos ng sun)……i think sun and pldt landline plus is the best combination of all, bihira na akong magtext. puro tawag na ako.

    Thank GOD!!!!! tama nang masakit na thumbs dahil sa katetext.

  10. lightspec says:

    I subscribed today. Sabi sa akin ng globe w/in 24 hrs daw, my service will be active na. Well, mine took 30 sec to be exact. Damn! That’s fast. Now, here are the problems. Ang hirap tawagan. My kid brother tried 10 times before my fone rang. If its not yet in service, its always busy kasi di ko ginagamit… What gives…

  11. sephiroth says:

    questi0n lang… aCtive parn bA ang inc0mIng cAlL after ng 5 or 14 days for 30 days?

  12. boy kuripot says:

    hindi na dapat bumili ng bagong sim. dapat kaya na sa luma. hassle magchange ng cell number

  13. sephiroth says:

    ganda sana ng ofFer ng globe kaso mahal ang subscripti0n tapos napapalitan pa ung landline number kapag hnd naloadan for 5 days or 14 days tsk tsk tsk. Napakamahal talaga ng prepaid service sa pi’nas.

  14. rovired says:

    Mahal talaga ang globe DUO. Sana meron sa smart at sun na DUO din. Pero mas mura sa sun pa rin at ok na ang nga dead spot area nila.

  15. marlowemarlowe says:

    oo nga… SUNCELL na ako… nag postpaid kami, ung group plan… okay naman… malabo lng pag gabi pero on certain areas lng nman…. well, hello they charge cheap, so it takes a tad bit sacrifice… the service of SUN its not bad naman overall… let’s support SUNCELL na lng, load tyo ng loaf. para makpg generate sila ng income annually, and add more cell sites nationwide… the best Gokongwei Group of Companies… Just think of: Cebu Pacific. Chippy… C2… Pretzel… Sun Cellular… wholesome products & services… =)

  16. marlowemarlowe says:

    ang nangyari kay lightspec, old scenario sa suncell,6 years agoo… now, di na… thank you SUNCELL!!! =)

  17. marlowemarlowe says:

    tama ka BOY KURIPOT,, hassle tlga ang papalit-palit ng number, ung ibang contacts ko na nag-foforward ng mga nice jokes n quotes d na nafsesend, kasi daw papalit-palit ako ng number… hehe… now, stick nako sa TM(Astigtawag) at SUN(24/7 Call&Text)… =)

  18. boowee says:

    Question: Paano yung landline number? I mean, in one sim dalawang number? one mobile and one landline?

  19. c00lzap says:

    Guys,

    Pwede nyo na iregister ang inyong Globe CP number at di na kailngang bumili ng SPECIAL DUO SIM…

    Just text DUO MM 125 or DUO MM 350 to 8888 for Metro Manila Globe Handyphone subscriber…

  20. darling82 says:

    try ko nga yan… makakatanggap pa rin naman daw ng calls upto 30days kung hindi agad makapag-load…

  21. Ventrio says:

    maganda naman yung globe network kaya sulit and fast issuance of landline number. yes you will be given a landline number so 2 na yung numbers ng phone mo. very conveient ang makatawag at matawagan ka via landline wala pang problema sa signal strength at quality. we can give you unlimited duo access for your globe prepaid sim for only 299 pesos a month (instead of 450) if you want to save :) everyone wants to save right? remember its not charged per call, nor per minute, its unlimited. you can email me at [email protected] if you are interested.

  22. dimsirch says:

    Well, it’s good that you don’t have to change your number then.

    I think the P450/30days is reasonable enough.

  23. globelover says:

    Globe is really great. i’d rather pay more. than pay for nothing.like sun. always no signal even in metro manila.. what the hell.. their service sucks!

  24. Ochie says:

    updated ba ito? may nabasa ako na 450/month na ang sa prepaid… any updates? i’m on postpaid and enjoying this service and my significant half wants to avail this pero ayaw nyang magpostpaid hehe..

    @globelover
    globe lover rin ako from the start pero napakalaki rin ng tulong sa akin ng sun :) why pay more kung ang service na kaya ng isa ay makukuha mo ng parehas lang pero masmalaki ang matitipid duon sa isa?

  25. Hazel says:

    Best padin ang SUN at PLDT prepaid. DUO to DUO lang to pwede eh pano kung di naka DUO? Ngek! Sa SUN kht isa lang me load makaka tawag. Shucks! GREEDY talaga ang GLOBE! mas ok nadin smart kesa globe kse mas madami naka smart kesa globe noh!

    Hello Yuga,
    Have you seen the new TVC from Globe? It’s quite cute, in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way. They call it Globe Duo or Die and phones commit suicide in the ad. It’s really creative and funny and delivers the message—subscribe to Duo or else you’re dead—quite well. Has anyone seen it? It’s in Youtube now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2zGFkGMrW0

  28. kizzzmo says:

    Nasubukan ko kanina iregisgtered number ko sa globe. In other words naka DUO na ako. Sinubukan ko tumawag sa landline tinawagan ko mother ko at tinawagan ko rin sarili ko sa landline. Satisfied ako sa service ng Globe.

    Ito lang ang tanong ko. Paano kung mag tetext ako sa globe na hindi pa naka registered sa Globe DUO? Kailangan ba aside from your load ex 125.. meron ka pa dapat additional na load? Para lang makapag text sa globe or same network? Baka kasi mag text ako sa same network ma checkoff naman ako?

    How about sa other network? Ganun din ba.

  29. chris says:

    Di na kailangan bumili ng bagong simcard kung existing globe prepaid subscriber ka na…

    AT pwedeng 25 pesos per month lang ang iloload mo para di madeactivate ang DUO landline number mo…

    Registration is 25 pesos, may 1 day unlimited outgoing calls ka na to any DUO numbers at sa LANDLINE phone numbers…

    After mag expire ng 1 day unlimited calls mo TULOY pa din ang service. May UNLIMITED INCOMING CALLS ka pa din…Pwede ka pa ding tawagan ng mga naka DUO numbers din at pwede kang tawagan from a LANDLINE PHONE…WALANG CHARGES sa LANDLINE PHONES kung incoming calls sa DUO…

    Sarap gamitin hehehe…Babad sa gamit ang landline sa office ay bahay…

    parang dpa din kaya tapatan talaga ng globe ang smart pagdating sa service….i’ve been waiting for the next action of globe counterpart service for smart all calls kasi most of my families are using smart kaya kaingit yung all calls nila sabi ko tatapatan yan ng globe mas maganda pa strategy nila….kaso bokya when i finally seen globe duo….walang wenta na nga….hanggang metro manila pa rin lang too expensive and not yummy!

  32. Peter SImon says:

    ^^smart user pala kasi kayo lahat, kami kasi sa barakada and kapamilya, puros globe kami. kaya ok sa kin ang globe lalo na ang globe duo,enjoy tumawag ng tumawag since naka duo din sila.walang putol ang kwentuhan at kulitan.

  33. james says:

    laki pala difference

    POSTPAID: P400/30days
    PREPAID: P350/14days

    postpaid kami ng gf ko kaya nasusulit namin duo. ginagamit ko rin para sa client calls, or magpapa deliver kaya nasusulit ko duo.

    alternative ng prepaid ay yung “+236” P20/20min call instead of the P25/day duo prepaid fee. di na kailangan ng special sim.

  34. fatboyonthecouch says:

    this is very terrible. this is extortion!why do we have to buy another sim pack? new sim, new number? why can’t they just support our old numbers? does anyone out there wants to change his old number? especially if you’ve been using that old number for quite some time and your friends, relatives and contacts knew your old number very well. lastly, this even more expensive than other networks! globe telecom will fall if they will not change their business strategies. in these times of needs, who would want to subscribe to a very expensive telecom service?

  35. ginger snap says:

    haay naku so expensive nga tlga yng globe duo n yan,ang globe pa nangangain ng load..kains

  36. nel says:

  37. grrrr!!!! says:

    im a prepaid subscriber and tried the one day promo for Php25 this morning. i was able to use the outgoing call (globe duo to local landline), but the incoming call feature from a LANDLINE was not working. the voice prompt said NOT IN SERVICE. i called 211 and reported the problem, and was asked to monitor within 24hrs.

    after 5 hours, i was able to receive an incoming call from a landline. but when i tried using the outgoing feature (to another landline number), ITS NO LONGER WORKING. seems like we cannot use BOTH incoming and outgoing features at the same time!! i don’t think this should be advertised as UNLIMITED, as obviously this is NOT.

    their customer service team was also of no help.

  38. Franz says:

    Nel tama ka dyan walang kwenta ang globe duo! eh buti nga ikaw may toot toot toot pa eh yung sakin sorry this call is not permitted! GGRRRRR! pero incoming OK sya sa outgoing walang pag asa! HARANG talaga 1 month pa naman subscription ko sayang yung araw na na tumatakbo eh pag tinawagan mo globe SORRY din lang sasabihin syo….. 2 days nko wala pa rin “this call is not permitted pa rin!”

  39. fredmon says:

    The globe duo service is a crap for prepaid subscribers. I already subscribed for a month and I cannot connect to pldt landlines for 4 days already. I also have the 500 prefix and the service was good until 4 days ago.

    I cannot make outgoing calls to PLDT landlines but calling up any Bayantel or Globelines is without a hiss. But receiving call from these landlines on my Duo number poses no problem at all.

    I am hoping that they will fix this glitch soon or my Php 450 subscription will just go to waste.

    So anyone who is planning to get one better think about it carefully as the service now sucks!

  40. Gerald says:

    I am a prepaid subsriber and availed of the DUO service. Their ad is a hoax…i cannot connect to any PLDT landline number (yeah i used the 02 syntax thing).

  41. jojo says:

    same thing happened to me. I have a prepaid service, before I can make outgoing calls to any landline. After subscribing to DUO, I cant make any calls to any landline anymore, except globe landlines. incoming calls from any landline works naman… kaso wala na ako matawagan na landline.

  42. abi says:

    I called up Globe’s 24hour Call-in Service and they told me that they are experiencing technical issues on connection to PLDT lines. This was adviced to them last Aug18. The person i talked to said they aren’t sure when the problem will be solved but their technical team is already on it. Its very disappointing as most of my friends are on PLDT lines. Hopefully, they can fix the problem asap. I’d still go for the 30-day DUO (im on prepaid!) coz its cheaper than the 1/5/14 days.

  43. puge says:

    best parin ang smart and PLDT tandem ko. I’m using pldt call all for only 250 per month, unlimited call and i can now run my business kahit wala ako sa manila. I can also subscribe to smart unlicall para pang mobile calls naman. Sa mga clients ko naman na naka other network, i can just text them and give them my landline para makapag usap kami.

    Globe broadband, Globe Lines is a NO NO sa akin. dahil sa ginawa nila sa phone line and internet connection namin. So what’s the diff sa mobile services nila?

  44. slasher says:

    very expncv..
    sabi nyo abot mo ang mundo…
    metro manila lang ang cebu and duo…
    unfair nmn yun…
    forever n nka globe me..
    but hindi ako ng try n mag duo.. my land line nmn kmi.. and sa mommy ko naka pldt all call sa nueve ecija.. much maganda ksi yun my land line kmi and ulimted call to land line.. 250 lng per month.. hindi mbigat bayaran..
    dun p lng much better na yung pldt all call..
    hope n makaisip kyo ng much better and hindi lng sana sa metro manila and cebu…

  45. alang kuwenta!!! nag-try ako mag-register for 1 day just to try it, nka-register naman & globe had given me a landline # (02-5046367)… pero hindi ako naka-connect kahit once sa kahit anong landline!!! its a waste of money & time really…and when i called 211 (globe toll-free prepaid hotline) the customer service told me that there are some globe prepaid nos. that are still not set by the system for globe duo including mine (09176670566)!!! huh??? at wala sila masabi kundi “sorry for the inconvenience”… bullshit….

  46. aji santiago says:

    well i just subscribed to globe duo using my prepaid globe phone last oct 11, 5pm. i can receive calls from pldt landlines, but not the other way around. i thought this issue was already fixed. bayantel lines work well though. i called globe and they said after the complaints during the past month, the duo to pldt issue was already resolved. called their cust service for 3 times, and the rep who last talked to me said to wait for 3-5 days before it gets serviced. according to her, to enjoy and make ‘sulit’ (her term) use of the globe duo subscription, i should call instead bayantel lines. and i was like, omg, you’re telling me to make the most out of it by calling bayantel lines while all i need to call are business lines which are mostly pldt? well it’s their cust service rep.

    and my subscription is 1 month, since i joined without qualms. what if the subscription is less than 3-5 days? then everything went to nothing? until now, oct 13 7am, i still can’t call pldt lines. globe doesn’t deliver, at least on my end. so frustrating.

  47. ocir says:

    hayy!!! dami naman negative comments….

    planning ko pa naman palitan ang PLdt sim ko into dou…

    kung indi maganda un dou ,,san gaaan ng paraan ito ng globe… para naman satisfied ang mga subcriber nito… ty…

    nakakalito talaga… anoooooo ….. ba……???

  48. Kathy Santiago says:

    Have you heard of the Super duo promo?

  49. tinine says:

    globe duo sucks. ever since i subscribed i can’t contact a single landline, and my friends tell me that they can’t contact me thru landline either. the only numbers i can call are other globe duos. don’t waste your money.

  50. Timoy says:

    Maayo man mo kay naa moy duo, kami diri sa mindanao kay walay available. walay lami manang duo ninyo.
