Globe MyStarter Plan: From Prepaid to Postpaid Plan without Changing Your Number

April 29, 2016
I am switching from prepaid to postpaid plan without changing my number via Globe MyStarter Plan. 
I wouldn’t disclose how many years I have been a Globe subscriber. Let’s just say that my very first SIM card costs around Php1,000 (yes, that expensive!) and my first official mobile phone was a Nokia 3210 (that first phone without antenna!).  I was one of the first to own such a (then) high-tech phone and I felt so cool with my 0917-xxx-xxxx number. 
I was a member of GenTxt and I have an old GCASH card 😀 
Here’s the thing though – I am a prepaid subscriber. I am afraid of commitment. The 2-year lock-in plan scares me. I always want my freedom and the fact that I do not want to change my number.
While I enjoy the freedom and flexibility of a prepaid Globe subscriber, there are so many challenges in my part as I change my lifestyle and embrace mobility.
Aside from staying connected to my friends and family over call and text, I also usually subscribe to prepaid GoSurf Promo. Currently, I am loving the GoSurf50 with 700mb valid for 3 days. 
As a blogger, I need to always stay connected to my social media – Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to connect with my audience and family and friends. 
I also need to be able to respond to clients and readers’ inquiries timely. Time is essential and in this digital age, you should be able to respond to emails quickly. It seems that the turn-around time of one business day has been changed to “at this moment”.
I also use my data connection to book Grab or Uber whenever I go out especially when attending events. 
Recently, I am doing a lot of Live Broadcasts via Periscope – please do follow me! @ruthilicious. I started doing my live broadcasts while in Barcelona (because of their super fast connection). It was a struggle when I came back to Manila and I had to buy and upgrade to 4G SIM to be able to do so. 
The problem with prepaid subscription is oftentimes, I spend more compared to those who are subscribed to a postpaid plan. I usually go over budget. Or, things would get crazier and you would ran out of load.  It is worse than an empty battery.

Thankfully now, I can switch from prepaid to post-paid plan without commitment and without changing my number via Globe MyStarter Plan. 
The all-in-one budget friendly Globe myStarter plan is available at Plan 300 and Plan 500, designed for customers who are new on postpaid and wants a simple and seamless transition to postpaid. Plus, you get to keep your prepaid mobile number!
 “Being able to retain an existing prepaid number for a postpaid plan has always been a recurring inquiry among our customers who are ready to move to postpaid. As their devices become an important part of their daily life, customers prefer a seamless transition to their new plan alongside the assurance and convenience of a fixed monthly bill that is within their budget. The new myStarter plans provide them exactly this kind of experience,” says Globe Consumer Mobile Marketing Head, Issa Cabreira.
The MyStarter plans also takes away any worries of going over the spending limit because of its guaranteed fixed bill every month. Should one go over the plan’s limit, it can easily be topped-up with prepaid load when needed.
