Once upon a time, having a postpaid line in the Philippines was a remote idea, especially when I was a student. For someone who had a loooooot of communicating to do (thesis group, lab group, parties, boys… among others!) it is very important to have a line at hand but it was too ambitious then until I had a part time job and could actually have something to show to Globe for my first line then.
But now, it’s a bit more accessible and even prepaid options are becoming exciting… and with those GoSAKTO offers you’re never disconnected and are always on the go!

In another pioneering move, Globe Telecom is boosting smartphone penetration in the country with an innovative offer that allows prepaid customers to avail of discounted devices and get rebates with GoGadgets.
GoGadgets is the first-of-its-kind prepaid service that allows customers to create their own prepaid bundle by choosing a gadget from a menu of discounted Android phones ranging from as low as P2,699 to P7,899.
To complete their prepaid bundle, customers just need to choose their promo combo (texts to all networks or unlimited calls), the validity period of the promo (7, 15 or 30 days) and the registration period (6, 12, 18 or 24 months), with no need to submit any requirements. Customers can earn their money back via GCash every time they register to any GoGadgets promo, which allows them to get their devices almost free.
Devices that can be availed from GoGadgets include CloudFone Excite 400dx, a smartphone that comes with interchangeable batteries and has 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal storage and long-lasting battery which can last up to 1 day of heavy use and 2-3 days on regular usage and Samsung Trend Lite which sports 4-inch screen powered by 1GHz processor and 3-megapixel rear camera.
“We continue to provide game-changing experiences to our customers through the introduction of innovative and first-in-market products and services. With GoGadgets, prepaid customers get the latest devices and get their money back while enjoying the flexibility of prepaid promos, enabling them to fully enjoy their digital lifestyle,” says Issa Cabreira, Senior Vice President, Globe Consumer Mobile Marketing.
GoGadgets comes on the heels of another pioneering innovation from Globe Prepaid, GoSAKTO. When it was first launched in 2013, GoSAKTO offered its prepaid customers the ability to create their own promo, allowing them to choose the kind and amount of calls, texts, and data they need for the validity they want. With the improved GoSAKTO launched in June this year, subscribers can now add apps and sites like Facebook, Instagram, Viber, and YouTube to their promo, letting customers create over 200 million different call, text and app combos.
Globe Prepaid customers can register by dialing *143#, choosing GoSakto and selecting Choose a gadget.
GoGadgets is already available in select Metro Manila Globe Stores (Glorietta, Market! Market!, Robinson’s Manila, SM Aura, SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM Southmall, and Trinoma) and in select provincial Globe Stores in Luzon (San Fernando La Union, SM Calamba, SM Olongapo, LCC Iriga, and Central Mall Cavite) and Visayas (Robinson’s Tacloban, Boracay, and Gaisano Island City Mall Bohol).
