m.Globe portal offers free Facebook, Twitter & Email




Globe has just launched their new mobile portal, called m.Globe, that offers free access to Globe services and feeds to your Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The service is pretty basic and can be access by any internet-capable phone (GPRS, EDGE, 3G, 4G) and is free via myGlobe Connect (APN: www.globe.com.ph)

To gain access, just text m.Globe to 2910. You can also download the Android App/Widget if you’re using any Android smartphone (just point your phone’s browser to http://m.globe.com.ph).

There’s option for personalization when you register your mobile number, add access to your Twitter feeds or Facebook Wall as well as email accounts (Yahoo! GMail, Windows Live). Here’s how the WAP site looks like on your mobile browser with 3G on.

Here’s what the Twitter updates look like. I have Php0 balance in my Globe Prepaid SIM when I posted this (3G data is On via myGlobe Connect).

Works on postpaid and prepaid SIM. Interesting to note that this new service is apparently Globe’s response to Smart’s Netphone campaign; the Globe website says so — “With m.globe, no need to spend for a new internet phone.

  3. john says:

    what’s the catch?

  4. Gene Ronquillo says:

    how can i set this up using my iphone?

  5. Mark says:

    What phone did you use to test? Tried doing that with an iphone with 10 pesos of load and you were right, after using the site I now have 0 load.

    When I called customer service they said that may charge daw talaga because the background apps of the iphone or android will connect and charge Php 5 per 15.

    In other words na nakaw load na lang ako. False advertising!

    • yuga says:

      I have Php10 load too at first when I access the mobile site and went down to Php0 after some time. However, after configuring the proper APN and now that my load is zero, I’m still able to access the portal.

    • Mark says:

      Lol. So kainin niya muna yung pera mo pag zero na pwede na. Good strategy globe.

    • MDS says:

      Mark,

      Ano ba gamit mo na sim? Globe prepaid, right? nakasubscribe ka ba sa TIME-based or PER KB na browsing? Tapos yun ba gamit mo na handset is Android ba na OS 2.1 and up?

      depende yan sa factors. check mo muna. mahirap yang ganyan na reklamo ka kaagad na nakaw load (tapos baka user-issue naman pala ang cause; the user being you) hehehe

  6. imitator101 says:

    Can’t get it to work. I set the new APN and texted m.Globe to 2910. The link in the text message won’t open. Help?

    • yuga says:

      I suggest setting everything first over WiFi. Disable 3G first.

    • Mark says:

      If you do it over wifi then you might as well just go to Facebook.com and Twitter.com, much better experience or use the official app. The balance inquiry is cool though pero parang may lag.

  7. Carl says:

    3 FB feeds and 3 Twitter feeds that you cannot comment, like or do anything on. You can’t even read older feeds. Dumb… and I tried it on an android binawasan pa ako ng load. leche!

  8. Mark says:

    If you use the apn, can you browse other sites or do i have to change back again? Mejo hassle ah

  9. denz says:

    ang panget! mas ok pa yung sa sun

  10. olay says:

    i could not connect to m.globe.com.ph
    i already changed the APN (Cellular Data) to http://www.globe.com.ph — or should it be http://www.globe.com.ph (no http://)?

  11. Nor says:

    none happen eh. worse, nag reply back ang globe saying “don’t have enough load” :(

  12. John Carl says:

    Doesn’t work with my iPhone. I’m on postpaid. I’ve changed the APN and texted 2910 already.

    • MDS says:

      John Carl,

      Ano yung hindi nagwowork sa yo? yung app or yung m.globe portal?

      yung sa app, hindi talaga magwowork yan pag dinownload at ininstall mo kase nga for Android lang yung app hehe

      if yung m.globe portal naman, that should work kase mobile internet browsing lang naman yan e. sa http://m.globe.com.ph

  13. Accessing internet becomes too easy and simple this days.

  14. Does sun cellular offer free twitter connection too? Thanks!

  15. Winston says:

    Other than facebook, twitter and email.. you can also read headlines from different sources through M.GLOBE. and it’s LIBRE!

    • tong says:

      You mean read the 1st paragraph on one headline per source then you have hidden charges when it comes to reading the full story.

  16. madz says:

    Wow. ok ‘to ah. i’ll try this after work. Thanks for sharing sir abe.

  17. James says:

    Ganda. Using it now, makakatweet na ako pag walang wifi, yay!

  18. Megan says:

    galing! di ako nababawasan ng load. magaling, magaling, globe!

  19. Melvin says:

    I can’t connect using the mobile network and i’ve change it already to http://www.globe.com.ph, but on wifi it’s working.

  20. jeff says:

  21. Boffill says:

    Will have to try this later. Thanks for this info Abe.

  22. supertoblerone says:

    baka naman magkacharge ako nyan? am using a postpaid plan? anyone tested this for iphone with postpaid plan?

  23. vince says:

    i tried it with my Desire but its super slow!!! as in slow!!! muntik na akong mag-download ng Android app pero nakita ko na may bayad pag gamit yun kaya di ko tinuloy. pero wala akong masabi. kasing bagal ng free FB app nila.

  24. Migs says:

    Sobrang bagal. bulok! Nabawasan pa ako ng load. Kakainis!

    • MDS says:

      Migs — nagconnect ka ba via 3G? baka mahina yung cell signal at the time na nagtry ka kaya sobra bagal.

      dependent ang speed ng browsing sa 3G sa signal strength ng network.

      tapos yung sa nabawas na load mo, check mo APN settings mo. also check mo if nakasubscribe ka na previously sa PER KB based na charging.

      if per kb charging, mababawasan ka talaga ng load

  25. Bobby says:

    Will this work on BB? Need the email kc :)) thanks!

    • MDS says:

      Bobby — nagtry kami sa BB handset na may naka-install na Opera browser. it worked fine naman.

      try mo din change yung BB APN settings to –> blackberry.globe.com.ph

  26. Mikhail says:

    Sana may ganito din sa sun cellular, kahit yung email lang..

  27. Maricar says:

    HELP! I’m using an HTC mozart 7 phone :( I already changed the APN and texted m.globe to 2910. Still doesn’t work.

  28. MDS says:

    Maricar — tama ba yung pagkakaset mo sa APN? wala dapat http://

    try mo browse ka internet muna, visit m.globe.com.ph

    tapos you will see on the main portal page, there’s a link there where you can download the m.globe application.

    worked for me ;-) thanks, Globe

  29. Tess Ting says:

  30. siyel says:

    Would it just keep on asking the mobile phone no? should it be already preset after it was already entered. I’ve successfully made a tweet w/ it so far. But then every time I would click the bookmark it would always prompt on

  31. Dennis says:

    Nyay naubos load ko.. I thought it is really free.. I called the GT cust service and they said meron 5 pesos per 15 minutes. 10 pesos nabawas sa load ko eh white screen lang lumalabas. I followed the instructions naman. tsk tsk

  32. ruzzel says:

    is this for android phone only? or pwede din sa bb basta naka globe sim ka?

  33. ivanlandle says:

  44. Ella Benitez says:

    Pwede po ba dito kahit tm yung gamit na sim? tenks po .

  45. bosz says:

    kung gagamitin nyo yan make sure na iba ung sim nyo kase pag nag load na kayo dun na kayo sisingilin ako 2010 ko pa ginagawa yan LOL!

  46. bosz says:

    1 time lang kayo mag load 15 pesos…
    promise kahit sa 6610 i nagamit ko yan ung free use ng fb without downloading that app.. i even used in on nokia x2 un mga ibang new cp hindi mo na need na palitan ng apn kase meron sim ang globe na automatic na yun na apn ang lumalabas. 2010 libre talaga ang fb lang. pero since sinama na nila sa app nila. babayad ka na wala ka man load pag nag load ka. mas mabuti sa browser mo gamitin wag na sa app. pag wala ka load wag ka mag llogout kase nde ka na makaka log in ulet sa fb mo. so make sure na iba ang sim mo jan para 1tym ka lang mag loload. kase pag ginamit mo yan pag nag load ka ulet. sisingilin ka na may tubo pa LOL!

  47. Donzzy says:

    Hi! Pwede rin ba to sa TM SIM? Yung bagong promo ng globe na free facebook din paano gagawin?

  48. arjay arcilla says:

    bkit ganun ? ualang nag repy. samsung galaxy mini gamit ko

  49. bosz says:

    sa mga gumagamit ng mga android cp’s nde naman gumagana un pag nagtxt sa globe 2910 sa akin ayaw im using samsung infuse. ikaw pa mag set ng apn. hindi ko alam kung gumagana ang sa tm. i suggest na ihiwalay nyo ang pang fb nyo na sim. kase kainin nya talaga ang load nyo pag nag load kayo yun ang pinakabayad nyo tumubo pa kayo. pag nag log in kayo sa cp nyo kahit 5 pesos lang wag nyo na i log out kase nde na kayo makaka log in pag wala kayong load. anjan ang google para malaman nyo paano i set ang apn. =)

  51. leima says:

    okey want to inquire lang kung wala ba bayad jan kung magtwetweet ka or magpopost,, kc as far as i understand,, ung free lang ay ung globe portal PAGE, pag magclick ka sa any links jan,, ccngilin kana ng P5/15min. for example,, nakita mo ung post ng friend mo, or let say comment nalang,, yes u can read it for free,, ung tanong makakaresponse kaba for FREE??

  52. leima says:

    It’s free to access the m.Globe portal via the Android app but using Facebook and Twitter or accessing websites are charged.
