#TodayIWill Start Using Globe’s Services Again

Globe Telecom
Globe Telecom

Fresh from a Bloggers Christmas Party by Globe Telecom, I have decided to revive an old phone and starting using Globe Telecom’s services again. I’m on Globe Prepaid now but I’m planning to get a Globe My Super Unli Plan P499 soon.

A lot of my friends have been bugging me to get a Globe link, prepaid or postpaid so they can bug me as much as they can since most of them are using Globe’s Unli services. Let me tell you now my friends that I don’t like talking on the phone too much so don’t expect me to abuse this service, k?

I do look forward to connecting with my Globe subscriber friends more. And yes, I will bug them when I have to. Because I can.

I’m currently on Globe’s SuperUnli Call and Text and I like that I don’t have to worry about going overboard with my postpaid line’s bill (on another network) or going out of load (in yet another network).

If you’re wondering what convinced me to get a Globe line? Aside from my pesky friends (whom I all love, CHAR!), here’s the new Globe Prepaid ad which urges Filipinos to go for it… GO LANG NG GO! (Or as I say… GO FOR THE GOLD!)

Cute a right? How about you… what will you do today? 🙂

Enjoy unlimited texting AND calling to any Globe/TM number for only P150/7 days or P25/day. For more info, text SUPERINFO to 8888 for free.

You can now send SMS to Globe Telecom, Smart Communications, and Sun Cellular subscribers from your Google Mail (GMail) account. The GMail-to-SMS service allows Filipinos to send and receive text messages from the Gmail interface to and from Globe, Smart, and Sun numbers. FOR FREE!

Myriam Boublil, Head of Communications and Public Affairs for Google Southeast Asia said: “SMS in Gmail Chat will bring a new level of flexibility and mobility to Gmail users in the Philippines. With more than 70 million mobile subscribers in the Philippines and the country being the SMS capital of the world, we think this service will allow for seamless integration between mobile and PC communication and make it more convenient for Pinoys to send each other messages.”

Gmail users can send a text from the desktop interface directly to a mobile phone via SMS. The process is similar to sending as instant message. The recipient of the SMS can respond to the text message and the response will appear in the sender’s desktop Gmail interface. The message can be stored and archived like any other chat or IM messages.

Standard network charges will apply for any communication from the Globe, Smart or Sun phone to the desktop. However, sending SMS from the Gmail Chat to a phone is FREE.

And you can also send SMS free to mobile networks in 20 other countries including United States, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Indonesia. The complete list of partner networks is at this link.

Using the GMail-to-SMS feature is easy. Follow these easy steps:

  1. Type a phone number and a short message into the new SMS box in Gmail’s chat window on the left-hand side of the screen.
  2. Click send.

Contact phone numbers can be stored in the Gmail address book.

SMS in Gmail Chat is automatically enabled for Gmail users. If it is not active in your account, you can activate it in Gmail’s settings window.

NOTE: As of this moment, every user can initially send up to 50 messages continuously. Every reply back from a mobile phone refreshes the counter by five messages, up to a maximum of 50. Even if you go down to zero, however, you will not be locked out of the system. The counter will increase back up to one 24 hours later.

Department of Education Undersecretary Yolanda Quijano, signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with Ayala Foundation Co-Vice Chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, Nokia Director for Community Involvement Gregory Elphinston, and Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu to expand nationwide the mobile teaching project “Text2Teach” (T2T).

It targets 850 public elementary schools nationwide to be used for English, Math, and Science lessons starting this schoolyear.

Staring July, the fourth phase will be implemented, making the T2T program available in Visayas and Mindanao. It also aims to upgrade the 205 satellite schools from the earlier phases. By the end of Phase 3 in August, there will be 555 Text2Teach-enabled schools. This means about 40,000 pupils, and almost 1,800 school heads, teachers and DepEd officials will benefit from the project.

Phase 4 of T2T will strengthen the partnership between the companies involved and the LGUs. DepEd regional offices will provide the training for the teachers while LGUs will provide larger counterpart funding for the program. In Phase 4, Pearson Foundation will return to the program to help in developing new downloadable educational materials for English, Science and Mathematics.

Text2Teach was launched in the Philippines in 2004. In seven years, it has helped improve the performance of students all over the country. This is possible through the through downloadable Math, Science, and English educational videos using Nokia mobile phones and Globe internet connection.

Utilizing the power of mobile technology, students in Grades 5 and 6 are able to watch any of the almost 400 educational audio and video materials loaded in the Nokia N86 8MP phones and equipped with the Nokia Education Delivery (NED) application.

NED allows teachers to download and easily access educational audio and video files on Math, Science and English. These are designed for the project with the aim to provide highly effective visual aids for teachers. NED also creates an interactive, student-focused learning environment in the classroom which makes the students eager to go to school.

Aside from the NED technology, Text2Teach recipient schools also get a Globe SIM card provided with P150 worth of free pre-paid load monthly for one year, a 29-inch colored TV, 3-day teacher training and teachers guides.

Current recipients testify that the tools provided by the T2T project help in the performance and attendance the the students.

Congratulations to Globe Telecom, Nokia, and Ayala Foundation for a laudable project!
