Realizations + Globe MyStarter Postpaid Plan

Wednesday, May 04, 2016

     If my memory serves me right, I've been using mobile phone since I was in Grade 5. My first mobile phone was Nokia 6150 and my first sim card was Globe. It's a prepaid sim card so to track, I've been buying prepaid cards and going to the 'suking tindahan' to buy a load for more than twenty years now. 

      But as time passes by, I've come to realize that having a prepaid sim card number has pros and cons that I need to address now that I've been sending SMS and make important calls constantly with my blog clients and PR persons for campaigns and projects. I will list down below those positive and negative sides of having a prepaid sim card and my realizations why now I need to go postpaid.

Advantages of having a prepaid sim card:
  • If I have a tight budget, I can buy a load for as low as Php 5.00.
  • I'm free from a 12 or 24-month contract.
  • I'm independent because I can switch from one sim card number to another anytime.
  • If I'm no longer happy with the services, I can readily change to a different provider without having early termination service fees.

Disadvantages of having a prepaid sim card:
  • Hassles of loading every time I don't have a load.
  • Some stores or 'suking tindahan' hasn't replenished their load balance yet.
  • The number of minutes of the load that I buy may come with an expiration date. Unused text and minutes will be forfeited when the expiration time has passed.
  • My prepaid sim card can be deactivated if I don't buy load for a specific period of time.
  • Fees and charges may be higher than that of a postpaid If I'll do the math.
  • If I don't have a load, a missed call should be returned back asap and if not it's a missed opportunity. 

   Because of my part-time job which is blogging, I've come to realize that communication is very important and a missed call not returned immediately means missed opportunity. I have a handful of experience where I cannot return a text or a call to a client who is asking me to edit the sponsored post that I've already published immediately because I was inside a vehicle on my way to an event.

     There was a time where I need to send an SMS to a PR person-in-charge of the event that I'm stuck in traffic and I'll be late. I was about to send a text and found out that I don't have a load. I can't even borrow because I still have a loan. See the picture? That's why I think going postpaid will be beneficial to me now that I always keep in touch with blog clients.

     I recently read from Globe's website that they have this new service which will benefit freelancers like me. I can now avoid the hassles and the advantages of having a prepaid sim card which I posted above if I consider and try the Globe My Starter Postpaid Plan- prepaid sim card numbers can now be converted into postpaid plans without changing your number.

  • For prepaid customers, one of the basic challenges when upgrading to a postpaid plan is to change your mobile number.
  • Retain an existing prepaid number, upgrade to a postpaid plan. Globe's assurance and convenience of a fixed monthly bill within your budget are now possible.
  • The Globe MyStarter plan will allow prepaid customers to use their mobile numbers as they move to a postpaid plan.
  • Globe MyStarter plan is available at Plan 300 and Plan 500.
  • Should one go over the plan’s limit, it can easily be topped-up with a prepaid load when needed. To enjoy their digital lifestyle more, the myStarter Plans are bundled with more data power.

     So now I'm planning to go postpaid and enjoy the benefits of Globe MyStarter Plan 500 without changing my number. I've been writing my recent number for more than six years now and I'm already attached to it. I'm sure you can relate to me when I say that my mobile number is already a part of my life and I'll feel incomplete if I lose it or just change it like that. How about those who already knew my number? It's a hassle for me to change my beloved number that's why I'm thankful to Globe for this plan.
