Unlocking of Mobile Phones
The NTC MC No. 01-05-2019 is the government mandate defining the rules and regulations on the unlocking of mobile phones and devices for PTEs (Public Telecommunications Entity).
For Globe Business customers, the account holder can request for unlocking provided that their subscription is already out of contract and has no remaining balance from the previous bill.
For Globe Postpaid customers, there’s there’s no need to request for unlocking. Devices will be unlocked after contract expiry.
For prepaid customers, the requirements for handset unlocking are the IMEI of the Globe-provided handset availed as a prepaid phonekit along with an active Globe mobile number.
For Globe Postpaid customers:
There’s no need to request unlocking. Your devices will be unlocked after your contract expires.
- To check if your device is unlocked, insert a non-Globe SIM into your phone and restart your mobile device. To check for a non-Globe signal, make sure your mobile data is on or that you're connected to Wi-Fi. For further assistance on device unlocking, you may visit a Globe store near you or submit a request to Globe Telecom on Facebook Messenger

Yes, they can. The IMEI of the Globe-provided handset you availed as a prepaid phone kit and an active Globe mobile number would need to be provided upon request.
The IMEI, or International Mobile Equipment Identity, is your mobile phone’s unique serial number which can be found as a sticker on your device’s box and also at the back of your device.
Unlocking will be done for both slots at the same time.
