    The soonest I’ve heard of this DUO SVC thing, it definitely raised interest of most people I know. 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.

  • Thanks for sharing the information. It is great to have two numbers on a single mobile.

  • Thanks for the information, Il definitely check this out, this will be very convenient than using a dual sim phones, which often have stability issue duirng actual operation

  • ma-try nga yan kung ok.

  • Roland

    let me get this straight, with a DUO SIM card, one can call/receive landline calls on YOUR CELLPHONE with no minutes charge (i.e. FREE)?

  • Edna Mamuyac

    I recently subscribe to this DUO promo because like mel, I am tired of carrying too many phones. I have smart (from work), globe and pldt landline plus. So when globe came up with this promo, I was so excited. There is no problem connecting from globe to globe or from my globe to any landline or from a globeline landphone to my virtual land phone. The problem is connecting from a pldt land line to my virtual phone. Almost impossible to get through. I hope Globe can do something about this.

  • DUO promo of globe, that was nice. I have globe subscriber friend and he used to text me constantly even though I’m using different network that’s when I found about that promo.

  • It’s Globe’s response to Sun Cellular’s predatory pricing. Hehe.

  • jireh

    Globe duo? wow!

    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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2zGFkGMrW0

  • Ramil

    Has anyone tried Globe’s new service called DUO? It combines landline and cellphone in one SIM. It sounds practical, given that we don’t have to carry more than one cellphone around. They have a new TVC out and it’s pretty cool. You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2zGFkGMrW0 What do you guys think of this new service?

  • Med

    ^^double post ka pare, mukhang may prob internet connection mo or spam ka lang, anyways it wont matter kasi i have to agree na oks ang globe duo.hassle free siya talaga,convenient and affordable pa. tawagan up to sawa!

  • Rian

    I’m currently subscribed to the Duo Service and I’ve been experiencing the benefits of the service. I was on a job hunt and because of the service, I have never missed a call even when I’m out. One time when I was about to be interviewed, a call came in from another company, and I was asked to come for another interview that same day. It’s a good thing I did not miss the call because that company hired me. Great service Globe!!!

  • Joshua

    mas malaki lalo ang benefit ng Globe Duo sa mga property specialist since tawag sila ng tawag sa mga clients. good thing at meron ng duo, makaktipid sila sa pagtawag at pag tinawagan eh sure na masasagot nila since nasa 1 phone lang naman ang duo.nice Globe!

  • Charos

    I certainly agree to Rian!

    That really saves your time, money and energy.
    It is indeed practical especially for those who are on the run……

    Two Thumbs Up!

  • Charos

    Asking why only within Metro Manila and not in the province…..

    I think they have their reasons as well….

    Metro Manila as a Business Central District, whereas each and everyone is on the Go!

  • fredmon

    Well, on the first few days I have used the service was ok. But after a week I cannot connect to PLDT landlines anymore. It always say that the network is busy. Might have been a network congestion on Globe’s part. So the 450 pesos I paid for a month subscription is going nowhere.

  • marluis

    GLOBE DUO IS (BULLSHIT) U CNT MAKE ANY OUTGOING CALL TO ANY PLDT LINE, SA UNA LNG CLA MAGALING,MAGALING SA PROMOTION , KAPAG NAPA DAMA NKYO, WLA NG OUTGOING AND IM (FUCK UP FOR 1 MONTH SUBSCRIPTION)

  • Bianca

    Im happy with the service im getting from Globe. Globe Duo is the best!

  • Rocky

    Globe Duo is working perfectly for me though since i subscribed to the service just last month, Globe made an action to the previous complaints. I’m really impressed with this service from Globe!

  • Nik

    Well, it seems like Sun is taking Globe head-to-head on the mobile landline scene: http://bit.ly/qMWX0

    It says there that Sun just re-introduced their double unlimited package as a 2-in-1 SIM, just like Globe’s Duo service.

    And, as expected from Sun, their offering it for only P249 on top of your MSF. Offer appears to be for postpaid subscribers only, well, at least for now.

  • alang kuwenta!!! nag-try ako mag-register for 1 day just to try it, nka-register naman & globe had given me a landline # (02-5046367)… pero hindi ako naka-connect kahit once sa kahit anong landline!!! its a waste of money & time really…and when i called 211 (globe toll-free prepaid hotline) the customer service told me that there are some globe prepaid nos. that are still not set by the system for globe duo including mine (09176670566)!!! huh??? at wala sila masabi kundi “sorry for the inconvenience”… bullshit….

  • dane

    sa una lang pala ok ang duo… huh!

  • dane

    nik, paano ung sa sun explain u nga? no coverage nya?

  • aji santiago

    well i just subscribed to globe duo using my prepaid globe phone last oct 11, 5pm. i can receive calls from pldt landlines, but not the other way around. i thought this issue was already fixed. bayantel lines work well though. i called globe and they said after the complaints during the past month, the duo to pldt issue was already resolved. called their cust service for 3 times, and the rep who last talked to me said to wait for 3-5 days before it gets serviced. according to her, to enjoy and make ‘sulit’ (her term) use of the globe duo subscription, i should call instead bayantel lines. and i was like, omg, you’re telling me to make the most out of it by calling bayantel lines while all i need to call are business lines which are mostly pldt? well it’s their cust service rep.

    and my subscription is 1 month, since i joined without qualms. what if the subscription is less than 3-5 days? then everything went to nothing? until now, oct 13 7am, i still can’t call pldt lines. globe doesn’t deliver, at least on my end. so frustrating.

  • mia

    for me GLOBE DUO is the best. Galing galing ng service nato, im using postpaid though.

  • aji santiago

    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.

  • Hindi ko satisfy sa service ng duo.. hindi ako macontact sa ibang landline! 🙁

  • tangna

    WALANG KWENTO ITONG DUO, NAGREGISTER AKO NGAYON FOR 1 DAY, DI NAMAN AKO MATAWAGAN NG LANDLINE, BULSHIT KAYO, BUTI NA LANG NAITRY KO MUNA SA 1 DAY.

  • tinine

    globe duo sucks. ever since i subscribed i can’t contact a single landline, and my friends tell me that they can’t contact me thru landline either. the only numbers i can call are other globe duos. don’t waste your money

  • Miro

    this service is now available to prepaid sim. 🙂
