How to Check Your Load Balance in Globe?

Globe telecom’s “balance inquiry” service allows you to check your prepaid load balance whenever you need to. It is a free service to help prepaid users monitor the available peso value stored on your globe sim card any time of the day.

There are 6 possible ways that you can determine your regular load value. It is by #143*, globeone app, interactive voice response (ivr), and via text. Some of these options require that you are connected to the internet while you can use the other options almost immediately using your phone. In this post, you will find out how to check your prepaid load balance using the 6 mentioned ways.

But why should you keep track of your globe load balance? The main reason we should monitor our available load is to know if we can call and send text messages to anyone seamlessly and without hassle.

The second reason is to become prepared during crucial times. Imagine a scenario where you run out of prepaid load in the middle of the night while you are talking to your crush over the phone. Or you run out of data while you are in the middle of an intense mobile legends game. Or early in the morning as you are going to school, you can’t text or call your classmates because you are not aware of your globe sim’s load balance. For sure it’s a hassle.

The third reason we monitor our load balance is for us to check our consumption rate on daily, weekly, or monthly basis. This is for budgeting purposes to know how much of our salary/baon goes to our regular load.

Now that you know the importance of checking your load balance. Here are the 4 ways to do so.

Dial *143# on your phone

    Hi Matt, thanks your info on how to check my GLOBE load balance. I am using *143# which is very helpful.
    How can I check expiry dates of my prepaid loads? In the past it was possible by calling/texting 222, but this feature now seems to have disappeared.
    Thanks, Tommy.
