Globe Telecom Launches Unlimited GSM-based Wireless Landline
Sunday, April 05, 2009


Captain's Log Stardate -314257.53

There's a new plan at Globe called Plan DUO. Plan DUO allows you Unlimited Calling to and from any landline number as well as Unlimited Calling to and from any DUO postpaid mobile subscriber within Metro Manila and Cebu.

As of now, Plan DUO is only available to Globe Postpaid subscribers. Duo Subscription is priced at Php399 per 30 days and is charged on top of your monthly phone bill. Once a postpaid subscriber subscribes to DUO, he/she will be issued a second number in the format of (local area code+XXXXXX).

Postpaid subscribers will NOT be issued a second SIM once subscribed to DUO, instead, a second "landline" number will be assigned to your current SIM. In effect, your postpaid SIM will have 2 numbers. One is your regular 0917-xxxxxx mobile number and the other is an "alias" or forwarder for your landline calls.

If you remember, a dual line/one SIM card subscription was offered by Smart before wherein you must switch lines in order to use the other. DUO does not require switching. :)

I still carry 3 mobile phones as of today. 1 for Globe, 1 for Sun and 1 for PLDT Landline Plus. I just hope Globe launches Duo for prepaid subscribers so I can ditch my PLDT Landline Plus SIM card and even my Sun Cellular SIM.

How DUO works:

  1. Subscription to DUO Service is •399/30days on top of a Globe Plan.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. Everytime you call, no need for a keyword or special prefix:
    • To call any landline just dial the area code and 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
  5. Service is initially available in NCR and Cebu only. All other calls outside the area code (02 for NCR or 32 for Cebu) will be charged regular mobile NDD rates.

How to avail Duo:
  1. Promo is open to all Globe Postpaid subscribers.
  2. Subscriber can avail of the service through the Business Centers or Register via SMS (with required SMS acceptance of Terms and Conditions). Simply text DUO to 8888.
  3. There will be an initial 90-day holding period for new activations, subject to pre-termination fee of P1,200.
  4. You can only avail of one (1) active DUO landline number for every active Globe line, at any one time.
  5. After the holding period, subscription is auto-renewed on a monthly basis unless otherwise requested by the subscriber.
  6. In cases of fraud, Globe reserves the right to discontinue the DUO service, and any of the subscriptions. DUO is not available for International Service Resale.
  7. Duo is currently not available for prepaid or corporate accounts.

G-Plan subscribers can subscribe now by going to the nearest Globe Business Center or register by sending DUO to 8888! Promo period is from April 5- July 3, 2009 only.

@paul - DUO depends on Globe's signal and so far, Globe has very good coverage of Metro Manila and Cebu :)

The soonest I’ve heard of this DUO SVC thing, it definitely raised most people's interest. For everyone’s information, I did my own research too and just found out from Globe’s Customer Service that the whole of RIZAL area is now included in the NCR (02) Local area code for toll free communications starting April 12, 2009 only.

If we could all remember way back years ago, Globe used to have this Duo service already even before Smart did. I used to have 2 Globe handyphone subscriptions both in 1 sim then, but eventually had to split them when Globe decided to discontinue the service maybe due to lack of patrons on this type of technology. But like most of us, I too am very much a sucker for variety of wireless services (mainly for my business) which I keep in my bag that grows bigger by the day due to the increasing number of gadgets inside it. There’s my SUN for the 24/7 UNlimited call and text anywhere in the country, Globe for reliability esp. during emergencies, at least 2 landline sims (SunTel and PLDT Plus prepaid) one for incoming and one for outgoing - toll free calls for my family and clients, and Globe Tattoo for my laptop internet connection, all for the convenience while I’m on the road. With this Globe DUO Service, I think my bag can breath freely now with just 2 mobile phones inside it, still maintaining my SUN and my Globe for both mobile and landline service in one.

Incidentally, this type of service would definitely benefit men especially, who usually just carry 1 mobile phone with them to go about their daily routines.

Cheers to newer breakthroughs!! The more competitions the lower the burdens of cost for us consumers. Bring them on.. Congrats Globe!!!

Among other things which Globe should add to its service is the revival of the CALL BACK ALERT it had a few years ago. It is very useful in places where there is no signal (dead spot) or in places where cell phones are not permitted. In those times when you are waiting for an important business call or suddenly have an emergency call from a family member and there is a dead spot inside a building or in a location, this service is very useful. Smart has this service for its post paid subscribers wherein a text is sent to the subscriber if the subscriber misses a call. I have inquired about it but the only reply you can get from the customer service is “We will update you when this service is available”. This is their constant reply for years now. Maybe Globe just does not want us to turn our phones off if this service is revived. The more phones turned off, the lesser their revenue. I hope this is not the case.

Kudos to globe for offering better promos. Better than bayantel and PLDT's offering since it's cheaper with UNLIMITED incoming and outgoing calls from local landline phones (unlike the PLDT Landline prepaid plus which, unfortunately I bought a few weeks ago, charges 1 to 2 pesos per minute for outgoing local landline calls). Unfortunately for prepaid subscribers, these new services are only for postpaid subscribers (thank God I didn't gave up my handyphone account, instead I dropped Smart Gold).

Check out this other new promo for postpaid Globe handyphone subscribers: New cheaper mobile browsing plans (as an add-on)


I'd subscribe to duo plus the cheapest plan for the new mobile browsing plans (since I just use mobile browsing when I'm bored outside anyway and whenever I update any applications on my phone plus urgent e-mail and info access). 149 pesos would be better I guess instead of getting surprised by a 500 peso extra expense for uncontrolled browsing (spurs of the moment? LOL) on my bill. Indeed, I'm thankful for these promos.
