This Globe Prepaid SIM Pack (“SIM Pack”) contains a Globe Prepaid SIM Card (“SIM Card”) with the corresponding mobile number and an initial prepaid load.
By purchasing the SIM Pack, the Globe Prepaid Subscriber (“Subscriber”), agrees to comply with and observe the following Terms and Conditions below and all future amendments thereto.
Pursuant to Republic Act No. 11934 otherwise known as the "Subscriber Identity Module 'SIM' Registration Act" and its Implementing Rules and Regulations set out in NTC Memorandum Circular No. 001-12-2022 (collectively referred to as "SIM Registration Act"), all new subscribers shall be required to register their SIM Cards prior to activation thereof, in any of the following:
(a) Globe’s designated online portal (“SIM Registration Portal”) accessible via this link https://www.globe.com.ph/register-sim-card.html; or
(b) Globe retail stores located nationwide
(c) GlobeOne App
Failure to comply with the SIM Registration Act shall result in the automatic deactivation of the SIM Card and the imposition of pre-termination fees, when applicable.
The Globe Prepaid Service (“Service”) may be used only if:
(a) the SIM Card is used with a SIM-based mobile device specific to the SIM Pack;
(b) the mobile device is not SIM-locked to networks other than Globe, and not blacklisted by Globe or by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) due to non-payment, theft, loss or other reasons; and
(c) Globe Prepaid Load is available in the account.
Globe shall have the sole discretion on whether a particular mobile device or SIM Card may access the Globe network and use its Service. Globe’s records shall prevail in the event of any dispute on the eligibility of a particular mobile device for use with the Service.
Globe provides or sells mobile devices incidental to and not separately from subscriptions for the Service (i.e., as part of Globe Prepaid device bundles). Mobile devices purchased as part of Globe Prepaid device bundles or Phonekits are not replaceable nor is the purchase price refundable in the event of loss or damage. Globe reserves the right to SIM-lock such mobile devices within a period as may be solely determined by Globe. Replacements or repairs of mobile devices purchased as part of a Globe Prepaid device bundle are governed by the Globe policy on returns and exchanges.
The Service requires the purchase, activation and use of the SIM Card. The SIM Card included in the SIM Pack or Globe Prepaid device bundle or Phonekit contains an initial prepaid load value. Once its initial prepaid load value is exhausted, continued access to the Service requires the re-loading of value by purchasing
Globe Prepaid Load through Globe Call/Texts Cards, or via GlobeOne App, designated online mobile apps, or from any Globe loading service, promo or sales channel (collectively “Globe Prepaid Load”). The specific features, terms and conditions of the particular Globe Prepaid Load shall govern the use and availability of the Globe Prepaid Load concerned. The Globe Prepaid Load cannot be used with the SIM Cards acquired under Globe’s Postpaid Subscriptions.
The SIM Card shall expire and be permanently disconnected if:
(a) The SIM Card remains un-activated and unused until the expiration date indicated on the SIM Pack envelope; or
(b) The activated SIM Card has no activity for a period of one (1) year from the date of last Globe Prepaid reloading; or
(c) The activated SIM Card has no activity for a period of One Hundred Twenty (120) days from reaching zero load balance or promo expiration with zero load balance.
Globe shall not be held responsible to replace any permanently disconnected SIM Cards. Permanently disconnected SIM Card from the Globe network can no longer be reconnected, and the corresponding mobile number may be reassigned and thereafter, can no longer be reacquired. Any Globe Prepaid Load in the permanently disconnected SIM Card, regardless of how obtained, is not redeemable or refundable for cash. To continue availing of the Service, a new SIM Pack must be purchased, activated and used.
Further, the Subscriber agrees that in the event of SIM Card disconnection, he/she shall be solely responsible for any and all applications that are connected to his/her SIM Card such as e-wallets, online banking and other similar apps and that he/she shall hold Globe free and harmless from any loss, damages or claims in relation thereto.
All outgoing calls and text messages, mobile data used, or Globe Prepaid promos registered to using the SIM Card will be charged according to Globe’s Prepaid Rates prevailing as of the time that such activities were made, including applicable toll charges and taxes. International calls, text messages, or use of mobile data shall be charged at the exchange rate prevailing as of the time that such activities were made.
Globe reserves the right to change Prepaid Rates without prior notice, upon effectivity of the NTC Order approving such change(s). Globe Prepaid promos are priced separately and have their respective validity periods and terms and conditions of use.
The Subscriber shall be responsible in securing, safekeeping, and storing his/her/its mobile device(s), SIM Card, and Globe Prepaid Load, as well as to monitor and use any Globe Prepaid Load in his/her/its account, and protect these things from loss, theft, damage, or unauthorized use. The SIM Card is assigned a unique Personal Identification Number (PIN) and Personal Unlocking Key (PUK) codes that are printed on the SIM bed which the Subscriber should keep safe and secure at all times. The PIN codes are security numbers that must be keyed into the Globe Prepaid SIM card in order to explore mobile device services and other features; the PUK codes are security numbers used to unlock the Globe Prepaid SIM card that has been blocked due to erroneous input of PIN codes. Globe does not store backup copies of the PIN and PUK codes issued with Globe Prepaid SIM cards, and therefore cannot issue or generate backup or replacement PIN and PUK codes.
The use of the Service (including, but not limited to, calls or messages to wrong numbers, fax tones, or answering machines; use of mobile apps; use of the mobile device as a Wi-Fi hotspot; making video calls; or registration to content promos) shall be the sole responsibility of the Subscriber, and all activities made thereto shall be presumed to be authorized by and under the control and responsibility of the Subscriber. Globe will not entertain any claim for rebate, return or refund of Globe Prepaid Load on account of unauthorized use of the SIM Card. The Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that it is inherent in the nature of a prepaid mobile service that details or an itemized billing of calls made, text messages sent, or mobile data usage in connection with the SIM card cannot and will not be provided by Globe.
The SIM Card or Globe Prepaid Load card are non-refundable and non-replaceable in the event of loss, theft, or damage due to misuse, mishandling or neglect. Claims of defects in the SIM Card or Globe Prepaid Load card, if any, shall be entertained if brought to Globe’s attention within seven (7) calendar days from the date of purchase and only if there has been no prior usage and if it has missing, incomplete, or unclear card numbers (including PIN or PUK codes). All replacements due to defects shall be subject to the investigation by and sole discretion of Globe upon presentation and validation of required documents.
The Subscriber shall not use the Service, mobile device(s), SIM Card, or Globe Prepaid Load for any unlawful, fraudulent, illicit, or abusive purpose. Globe hereby reserves the right to suspend, refuse to reconnect, terminate or disconnect the Service to any Subscriber who shall exhibit abusive usage as determined by Globe at its sole discretion. Globe also reserves the right to file the appropriate legal action against the erring Subscriber and to charge the appropriate pre-termination fee, if any, as well as to exercise any other available remedies to protect Globe’s interest.
The Subscriber agrees not to engage in the following activities:
(a) Resale or any commercial use of the Service, without the prior express written consent of Globe;
(b) Utilization of the Service in bypassing or in activities that tend to bypass the Globe network, billing and/or traffic routing;

(b) Any violations of the SIM Registration Act, Cybercrime Law, Data Privacy Act, Intellectual Property Code, and Anti-Child Pornography Act; or
(c) Other similar or analogous activities/violations as determined by Globe.

In addition, the Subscriber shall be liable to Globe for any and all compensation fee on account of any of the above Unauthorized and/or Illegal Activities and/or unauthorized commercial use of the Service. The compensation fee is payable, without any limitation from the time the Unauthorized and/or Illegal Activities occurred or is committed until the actual cessation thereof. A penalty equivalent to one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the computed revenue losses shall be charged against the Subscriber if proven accountable for such Unauthorized and/or Illegal Activities. For this purpose, Globe has the right to fully access, without the need of court order, to the relevant books and all other records held by the Subscriber or in his/her/its possession in order to ascertain the volume of traffic and total amount of compensation fee payable. In the absence of said record, Globe shall have the sole discretion in the determination of the bypass compensation.
The Subscriber further agrees to fully indemnify and hold Globe, its directors, officers, employees, agents and injured third parties free and harmless from any liability, suit, or damage arising from or connected with the commission of the Unauthorized and/or Illegal Activities.
The Subscriber authorizes Globe to supply any and all information relative to the subscription to the Service, requested by any law enforcement or government agency/ies, or other private entities, within the limits provided for by law.
