Globe Telecoms spearheads the fusion of mobile phones and landline in the country using your Globe postpaid plans. They actually dubbed it Globe DUO and basically allows you to have unlimited calls to and from any landline numbers and even to anyone who is also a Globe DUO postpaid mobile subscriber.
If you’re an entrepreneur with business associates to deal with or even colleagues to discuss projects with, then this may be a good cheap mobile alternative. Also this one targets the families who want their household to easily contact them without worrying costs. Actually, this can be a killer to their competitors too, not to mention quality may be better than other unlimited calling offers. It’s in a single SIM after all.
It’ll cost you P399 for a 30-day subscription in addition to your Globe mobile postpaid plan. So how do you configure your Globe Postpaid plan to get it DUO-activated? You only have to text DUO<space>INFO to 8888. Then accept by replying YES to the terms and conditions that will be sent to you. Note that this will lock you in for an initial 90-day or 3 months holding period and would cost you P1,200 if you choose to pre-terminate it.
After the registration above, you’ll instantly receive your DUO-number (XXX-XXXX). Now you’re ready to go unlimited calling bonanza to any landline like you’re used to without worrying any prefix mixed-up to their numbers, unless you forgot the area code. The promo is only available as of the moment in NCR and Cebu, so the area code would just be either 02 or 32 plus the landline number.
Those who like to call you up using their landline would only use your Globe DUO-number to dial on their phones. And if you want to go unlimited calling to your friends with Globe mobile numbers, then better start telling them to get their DUO-number activated, too. Remember though, that you have to use the DUO-number when dialing or you’ll end up paying more than less.
In case you’re on pre-paid or on corporate account, you’ll have to get your own Globe postpaid plan before you can avail this cool promo. This one runs until July 3, 2009 only.
