My Globe DUO demo kit was finally activated today after weeks of anticipation. PLDT also called this morning informing me that they have already re-activated my Landline Plus Prepaid SIM and included P300 prepaid credits or about 150 outgoing minutes and unlimited incoming calls for 30 days. I now have 2 wireless landlines ~_~ Anyway, I tried calling our PLDT landline using my Globe DUO. I've been reading inter-connectivity issues between PLDT and Globe from Yuga's blog. My call was immediately connected though. Call quality was okay, but not as clear as my PLDT Landline Plus. I also tried DUO on a Bayantel landline. It took 3 tries before the call got through.
I'll be stress-testing DUO in the coming days, but before I do that, let me show you one of the best features of Globe DUO I like.
Compared to using a Dual SIM phone, you can actually receive 2 calls on your two Globe numbers simultaneously. Dual SIM phones only allows call waiting to work on the current active line, and since for example, you availed Sun Cellular's Double Unlimited subscription, you cannot accept another call from your other number.
With Globe DUO, it's like Barrack Obama... YES YOU CAN!
I'll post my full review in the coming days :)
