Globe GoUnli30: Get Unlimited Viber, FB Messenger, KakaoTalk, WeChat, Line, and WhatsApp, Plus Calls and Texts!

Back when I received the invite for yesterday’s Globe Prepaid event at their new headquarters in Bonifacio Global City, I didn’t know what to expect. It’s not as if they could top GoSakto that a lot of Globe Prepaid subscribers have been enjoying for some time now — or so I thought. So when they revealed their new GoUnli30 promo that would give you not only unlimited calls to Globe and all-network texts, but access to all the major over-the-top (OTT) messaging services as well, well color me surprised.

It’s no secret that there’s a new breed of subscriber that relies more on messaging services like Facebook Messenger, WeChat and Viber while relying less on calls and SMS. Most telecoms would have every reason to be afraid of such services because they would cut into their revenues from calling and texting, but Globe did something unprecedented by actually bundling not just one or two services together, but all of the major services into a single promo: GoUnli30.

The new GoUnli30 promo combines unlimited calls to Globe/TM and all-network texts with access to all the major OTT messaging apps: Viber, Facebook Messenger, KakaoTalk, WeChat, Line, and WhatsApp for one day. That way, you can use all of your favorite messaging services without having to be tied down to a WiFi hotspot. And if you ONLY want access to your instant messaging apps for one day without the unlimited calls and texts, there’s UnliChat25.

As of the end of June 2013, Globe’s total mobile subscriber base stands at around 36.1 billion. Add to that over a billion users around the world who use OTT messaging services like Viber and Facebook Messenger and that’s a lot of bang for buck your Php30 will get you. If you’re interested in subscribing to either promo, just text GoUnli30 or UnliChat25 and send to 8888, or call *143# for free and register through there.

About The Author

The first phone I fell in love with was the humble Samsung Star. It was technically just a feature phone at the time, but it's functionality and user-friendly UI would often deceive me into believing I was in control of something much more powerful than its price tag would indicate. These days, it's the Galaxy Note that I play around with, but there's still a lot of tech that I can't afford. Boy, do I wish I had an unlimited bank account..
