Globe upgrades Duo to Super Duo

Just got a infomercial SMS today from Globe that announce an expanded service to their Duo wireless landline — Globe SuperDuo.


Super Duo

Realme Philippines

Subscribers of Globe Duo can now upgrade to SuperDuo for Php499/30 days. SuperDuo allows you to make unlimited landline calls as well as unlimited calls to all Globe and Touch Mobile phones nationwide.

To upgrade, you need to deactivate Duo plan by texting “DUO OFF” to 8888. To activate Super Duo, text “SUPERDUO < area > ON” to 8888. The area tag will be your code designation for the landline number (e.g. Metro Manila, Cebu, etc).

If you have remaining credits on your Duo account, it will be credited to your Globe Super Duo.

What is not clear is that you might also lose your original landline number because you’ve deactivated Duo. Will verify this with Globe.

I’m a bit confused, so if all my contacts are on globe, and I subscribe to Superduo which will allow me unlimited calls to Globe/TM mobile phones, then my regular postpaid plan like plan 5000 seems to have almost no advantage to plan 800 unless I send sms a lot… your inputs would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Yes Superduo lets you call unlimited to Landline in your area as well as nationwide TM and Globe mobile phones. BUT 1. It costs 599 /month prepaid AND 2. Make sure you erase the prefix numbers from super unli because you will be charged double. Aside from the 599/month it will deduct from your load the super unli rates.

TRICKY noh?

You were right! It was just a three day hiccup! I can now call PLDT landlines problem free. Thanks LuigiMD….

I have no problems dialling any landline numbers. Wait for another day. It could just have been a hiccup in the network. If it behaves consistently, contact Globe.

Ok this is half crappy! I upgraded to Superduo from duo but whereas before I could call any landline in NCR now it is impossible for me to call PLDT landlines. What good is Superduo then? Sure I can call Suntel, Bayantel and Globelines but ZERO PLDT!

They should not have charged more for the transition if you cannot contact a PLDT landline. Globe remove man lang Php100- 200 pesos from the Php499 or Php599 for thirty days. most landlines are PLDT eh. Probably won’t renew after this.

I have had no bad connection problems with Superduo prepaid as other friends seem to have. Maybe it has something to do with living in Ayala country? My house is literally back to back with the Zobels residence.
