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.

2. Received your request

3. Text message arrived for more instructions

Type DUO AREA and send to 8888 for the area you are registering.

4. Text DUO
ON to the area you want to be registered.

Type DUO MM ON and send to 8888 (if in Metro Manila)

Type DUO MM ON and send to 8888 (if in Metro Manila)

5. You receive the terms and conditions to which you should reply YES

6. Another confirmation text for you to wait for another confirmation message.

Note that the time is 12:35 AM of April 5 but at 12 PM , I still didn’t get a confirmation message. I repeated step 1 to 6, the got this

7. Thank you for accepting the Terms and conditions.

This was the message at around 2:28 PM today:

My Duo Landline number is finally given to me. It starts at 02-215 ****

Note: If you don’t want all that info, just type the text message starting in number 5.

Text DUO MM ON to 8888 if in Metro Manila
Text DUO CEB ON to 8888 if in Cebu (Available on April 15)

  1. :sigh: As a novice snapper I sometimes feel awed by the amount of information I need to learn about photography. However, the more posts like this i read, the better a photographer i become. Thanks for helping me move on a bit.

  2. Have you seen the new TVC from Globe? It’s quite cute, in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way. They call it Globe Duo or Die and phones commit suicide in the ad. It’s really creative and funny and delivers the message—subscribe to Duo or else you’re dead—quite well. Has anyone seen it? It’s in Youtube now:

  3. have been seeing the TV ad since 2 weeks ago and i was kinda “natuwa” of the tvc maybe because as we know, medyo high tech na tayo ngaun, so mas convenient and mas nakakatipid in one way is to have a landline in your own mobile phone, anyways, will be subscribing to Globe Duo not later than this week. pag nalibre ako sa office.

  4. yikes!ang cute nung commercial nung Globe duo, PHONE SUICIDE!!!so talagang DUO or DIE talaga!

  5. because of globe duo, i can keep in touch with my bf 24/7-wala siyang takas sa pambabae niya dahil murang tumawag at unli pa. ok lang ang tvc, medyo brutal pero cute in another angle!

  6. I love it. I make like my wireless landline within the house. I am lazy sometimes to go use the main landline.

  7. @noemi-agree ako sa sinabi, kakatamad nga gamitin ang main landline pang telebabad,that is why nagsubscribe na din ako, kaya lang lagi naman akong tinatawagan ng bf ko, telebabad kami 2 da MAX!!!!

  8. @vin-seems you’re not reading…kindly read back, no time to explain it seems that the thing is its just above you…back to comment for Globe Duo. for me its Globe predicament to Smart’s Uzzap choppy-high cost service. Globe Duo is practically convenient though metro manila and cebu area pa lang and lets just wait, Globe is doing something to surprise us. here’s my 2 cents!

  9. My 1mo Globe Duo plan is not working again; worked for only 1.5 days in the past 6 days. after 5 complaints, think i’m done. i’m giving up.

    Globe Duo is a great, innovative idea, but an unreliable service. 450 went to nothing, with lost transactions and other economic costs. sad.

    maybe it’s only good for postpaid subscribers.

  10. i want to ask if, how much the cost of ur wireless phone wid this promo..
