Globe ROAM ON Roaming Activation Process

by on 5 Comments

This post will explain how to activate roaming ( GROAM ON ) with your Globe prepaid mobile phone. I am now in Singapore with family for Christmas and New Year (for a change) since we always celebrate these holiday seasons in the Philippines for decades. Prior to leaving the country I experienced problem on how to activate roaming with my smart mobile phone?

I am a smart prepaid SIM user, but for sure even globe prepaid subscribers experience the same thing. I wrote this post to discuss the usual problem of OFW, and travelers who wanted to experience culture other than the Philippines.

Globe roaming or GROAM ON for prepaid subscribers is easy to activate. To stay on the safe side, it is better to load at least P300 on the day before departure. Also, make sure that your phone has minimum load of P100 while outside the country to experience consistent connection with love ones in the Philippines. If you forgot to load, don’t worry there is Globe e-loading station in the airport. The minimum E- Load amount for Smart is P200 so maybe Globe offer the same.

To activate Globe roaming just text GROAM ON then send to 2884. Unlike smart which roaming should be activated an hour prior to departure time, this should be done 24 hours (at least) prior to departure.

To send text messages going to the Philippines just dial plus sign + country code + the 7 digit mobile number. Example: +63 917 1234567

To make calls to relatives in the Philippines just dial *131*63 918 1234567# for mobile phones and *131*6321234567# for landline. Replace the numbers with respective area code and mobile / landline number.

*For other globe roaming concern I suggest you visit the telco’s official website
