umobile connection problems with Globe

Anybody else on umobile having connection problems with Globe? Got my umobile SIM a couple days ago but never bothered using it until last night after finding out the’ve got some nice numbers — mine’s 0999-3000-xyy.

However, SMS and calls from Globe numbers would not some thru. A friend who’s using Globe tells me her SMS to my number got stuck in the Outbox.

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series

A phone call would not go thru either — “your number cannot be completed as dialed” error or something.

SMS and phone calls from a Smart mobile number are working fine though. Anybody else experiencing the same network problems?

Update: Here’s an update from umobile:

This is to inform you that interconnection of umobile with Globe and Sun networks are still limtied. You can still call your friends in Globe or Sun but they won’t be able to call you just yet. umobile will keep you posted once interconnection is available.

    agreeing with La Ciudadista – giving the upper hand to the big telcos gives consumers limited choice.

    The NTC should step in and should enforce full interconnection to all telcos. Its really anti-consumer if new telcos have to negotiate interconnection with existing telcos.

    Actually Abe, you may want to test and post about Globe-Chikka problems. For almost 2 weeks, messages from Chikka to Globe are not getting through.
