Globe bundles seven OTT messaging apps like KakaoTalk in the new GoUNLI30

Globe Prepaid GoUNLI30

It’s no brainer that the SMS (short message service aka text) is slowly dying with the deluge of many free messaging apps like Viber, KakaoTalk, and many others. This means that mobile network operators will eventually find a way on how to increase revenues thru other means. So what do they do? Sell data plans? No. Consumers still find them expensive. But Globe has found a way.

Instead of selling full data plans, Globe has retained the usual unlimited calls to Globe/TM and texts to all networks in their new promo, the GoUNLI30, and bundled free usage of seven messaging apps. The list include Viber, Facebook Messenger, KakaoTalk, WeChat, Line, WhatsApp, and GMessage — all for just P30 a day. The main takeaway here is that subscribers won’t have to buy expensive data plans or find a Wi-Fi connection just to use those messaging apps which are so trendy right now.

This is really much better than having just unlimited calls and texts because with the inclusion of those apps, you can do more things like making video calls, send photos, participate in group chats, send voice messages, and more.

So how does it work? Well, you first have to download your favorite app using Wi-Fi or mobile data (charges apply of course) from your device’s respective application store. You then need to subscribe to GoUNLI30 by dialing *143# and choose option 1 which is GoSAKTO or by texting GOUNLI30 to 8888. And you’re all set! Keep in mind that if you are using a smartphone with other apps installed, it may do background data pulling and thus charge you. I suggest that you turn this setting off first.
