Got my iPhone 7 Plus 256GB from Kimstore. No plans to postpaid. Good prepaid promos?

    Prepaid user here. No plans of going postpaid since I've had terrible experience with signal using my prev pocket wifi with Globe.

    Just want to ask what strategies would anyone suggest to prepaid only for the usage?

    • I don't use data much; only when commuting since I've net at home & at work.
    • I usually have unlicalls & some text to other networks but mostly I interact with people online.
    • I sometimes need to download heavy files for work but mostly I'll download those using my MBPr over wifi
    So my question is:
    • What is your usual cost for medium usage per month?
    • Is paying P1300+ per month unnecessary for a user like me?
    • Do you have other strategies in order to only pay for what you need ie., exclude freebies you don't need
    • When Globe says UNLI net on prepaid, there is a data cap per month right? Would you know what cap that is?
    Thanks a bunch!

    The best prepaid promo for Globe is GOTSCOMBODD70 - 7 days 1GB, unlimited free texts to all networks.

    That's 280 pesos for 4GB data, unlimited texts in a month!

    Gosakto choices still rock.


    Based on your usage 1300 per month is too much.

    Oh, that rate came from the GoSAKTO 50 texts to all networks + unlicalls to globe + unlidata for a month. I am looking for promos that has a duration of 30days so I only have to subscribe once. Thoughts?

    Wow yeah, the gosakto calls looks perfect for my mom!

    @lishechen - you can multiquote the messages so you can consolidate it in one post

    We will be home for a vacation for about a month, and of course I'd be using a Prepaid SIM from Globe.
    Which plan would you guys suggest so I could have at least 4GB data in one whole month?
    I would say I won't need more than 100minutes of calls, and could even survive with only 100 SMS to any network.

    Im using this promo:

    GOCOMBOAHAF204 - 1000 texts to all networks
    GOCOMBOGKEA42 - 1GB data + 500 calls to Globe networks
    GOTSCOMBOKEA37 - 1GB data

    So worth 283 pesos will give me 1000 texts to all networks, 500 minutes to Globe/TM subs and 2GB data for 1 month.

    I always use this combo. If data is consumed, I can always register for either GOCOMBOGKEA42 or GOTSCOMBOKEA37 for another 1GB of data.

    How do you keep your 2GB from not expiring? Did you top up with gs99?

    I'm using the same promo that Kleithxx posted above. It works for me... I used to enroll to a promo that gives you unlimited data + 500 minutes + 1020 texts to all network for about 800+ pesos - but this promo no longer works.

    ^I'm stuck on prepaid because they cannot make my SIM post paid (I tried)... I can't give up this 11 year old number because of our business and contacts. and I'm using a nice vanity SIM number :)

    I tried this promo GOTSCOMBOKEA37 - 1GB data and is it valid for just 1 day?
    Or is there a timing issue when I register this kind of promo codes?
    Thank you in advance! :)

    u need to do all three of the promos to get them to last 30days.
    taken individually, they're not awesome.

    this one first.
    GOCOMBOAHAF204 - 1000 texts to all networks
    then this one
    GOCOMBOGKEA42 - 1GB data + 500 calls to Globe networks

    then if your 1gb gets used up u add this.
    GOTSCOMBOKEA37 - 1GB

    Hi! Did the same and got a notification for 1GB data for a day. Checked GOSAKTO STATUS, it was added within the duration of the old GOSAKTO subscription.
