Upgraded my Globe Duo Landline to Super Duo

I complain about many of Globe services but one that gives me the highest satisfaction level is the Globe Duo Landline for my postpaid cellphone which I subscribed in April 2009. In fact Globe asked if I was willing to give a testimonial and I readily gave it 4 months ago.

During the Ondoy Flood damage, all our landlines were cut naturally (I have both PLDT and Globe lines) and calls needed to be done: the insurance companies of our 3 cars and our home, the service centers of the refrigerator, the oven, washing machine and other services needed for the cleaning of the house. What convenience that was.

Now when I heard the latest news from Globe Duo (via Yugatech), I eagerly read their upgrade:

Subscribers of Globe Duo (399/30 days) 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. You cannot call a DUO landline number in another region though but you can call their cellphone number.

Globe Duo Video Testimonial

Several months ago, I blogged about the launch of Globe Duo, Globe’s new breakthrough service that lets you make landline and mobile phone calls all through one SIM card! The Duo SIM card enables you to make unlimited calls to landlines, unlimited calls to any DUO subscriber, receive landline calls wherever you are, and make the usual mobile calls or texts.

I find it really so useful. Since I was one of the first to avail of the service, my Duo Globe Number is pretty and so easy to memorize. My household or family members can call me anytime especially for emergency matters. If you haven’t availed of the Duo Globe, you should get one now.

How does it work?

Globe Duo is surprisingly easy to use. Other phones can accommodate two SIM cards, but Duo is the real two in one. No need to keep a second phone around or get a duo SIM phone, because DUO SIM cards contain both the landline number and the mobile number.

Once you are subscribed to Duo, you will be given your Duo Landline number. Now, your mobile phone and SIM will have two (2) numbers: your current mobile number (i.e. 0917-XXX-XXXX) and your Duo Landline number (i.e. 02-XXX-XXXX).

Upon activation, the following calls are rendered free of charge: DUO to any Landline calls, any Landline to DUO calls, and DUO to DUO calls. Calls made to other mobile numbers are charged regular mobile rates.

No need to enter a prefix or keyword to make landline calls! To call a landline number, simply dial the area code plus the landline number. To call another DUO number just dial the area code and the DUO number of the person you are calling. For any landline to call you a person will just dial the area code and your DUO landline number

How much does it cost?

Post-paid and prepaid subscribers can enjoy the Globe Duo service through affordable plans. Postpaid subscribers pay additional P399 every month of the service, while prepaid subscribers can get Duo for P450 for 30 days, P125 for 5 days or P25 per day of meter-free calling.

I am so happy with the service that I was willing to give a video testimonial of the Globe Duo service.

Globe Duo Plan: Mobile and Landline in One SIM Card

Via Abe Olandres, here is breaking news from Globe.

Globe Telecom has launched a new cellphone-and-landline-in-one service called the Plan Duo Subscription. This service allows Globe subscribers to carry two numbers in a single SIM card — 1 mobile and 1 landline. It is available only in Metro Manila and Cebu but the latter will be activated only on April 15.

I finally got my landline number after trying to register since 12:18 AM. In fact I tested it using my PLDT Landline then Abe Olandres called me through his DUO landline number. Clear reception so far.

Here are the series of text messages I got
(Click on the photos to enlarge)

1. I typed duo and sent it to 8888

It was buggy and kept saying that I used an incorrect keyword. I sent duo 4 more times until I got this second message.
