Globe Platinum subs tend to be business owners and as such may be better served using Globe Business instead I transitioned from Globe Platinum to Globe Business for the following reasons * BIR will not allow me to expense out the personal Globe Platinium accounts as a business expense. * I do not "feel" or use the Globe Platinum perks. * Globe Platinum personnel lied for a few months to me about Airboost requirement of needing to pair it with a Globe Fiber account . * I have been paying a MSF of P3,799 with total surcharge of P4,500+ per account since the mid 90s even if we fully paid for the handsets years ago. Globe took nearly a year to update my plan category and MSF. After following up so many times with spreadsheet breakdowns as supporting document on how they overcharged me due to their neglect they ended up all my overpayments as prepayments. As a result I didn't need to pay anything for about a year. So why did I stick to Globe after all these headaches? Because over 80% of my contacts are on their network. It would be cost more to go to Smart and my contacts would spend more when they contact me. The SIM-only plan I transitioned to 3 years ago was ThePlan 599 (MSF 599/month) with the following inclusions * Unlimited text to all domestic networks * Unlimited calls to Globe/TM/one landline area code * Free 3GB of data with P1,000 bill protect for 24 months. * Consumable of P200/month for 24 months * Free phone after 6 months (which turned out to be false advertising) * Contract length is 6 months. If you want rebates for a cheaper MSF you will need to extend to 24 months. This would be a contest of P3,799/month for limited SMS, calls & data vs P599/month for unlimited SMS, calls & 3GB of data . Tough choice, eh? 85% decrease... Once the data has lapsed I am now moving to another SIM-only plan called ThePlan 999 (MSF 999/month) * Unlimited text to all domestic networks * Unlimited calls to Globe/TM * 8GB of data with P1,500 bill protect for 24 months. * Consumable of P500/month for 24 months * Free 1GB of Instagram data for 24 months. (ad states Gmail but you can request a switch) * Contract length is 6 months. If you want rebates for a cheaper MSF you will need to extend to 24 months. I included an additional 199/month for "Globe Duo" for unlimited calls to one landline area code. I would not have transitioned to ThePlan 999 if Apple allowed for a Siri Shortcut for SMS. I would had made a shortcut that would text "GS50" to 8080 every 72 hours then "GS50 IG" to 8080 every 72 hours so my data would be 30GB every 30 days & 3GB of Instagram every 30 days at P500. This would be a contest of P1,199/month for 8GB of data vs P1,099/month for 30GB of data & 3GB of Instagram. Tough choice, eh? Only variable cost would be calls to other domestic networks and area codes and international SMS and calls. I would be willing to pay extra for cellular data network priority to keep me on LTE at over 15Mbps all the time while other people crawl at Edge.
