Globe Micro Sim finally!
Globe has finally released a Micro Sim under tattoo for both prepaid and post paid. For those of you who have the iPad 3G here in the Philippines, you wont need to cut your regular sim cards so they'd fit. Globe's new Micro sim is powered by a new Unlimited Data Plan exclusively available from Globe Tattoo. The Unlimited Plan lets you go online whenever you want for only PHP 999/month. If you prefer prepaid, get Globe’s Micro sim for just PHP 50.00 and start surfing for PHP 5.00 for every 15 minutes.
After inserting the micro-SIM into the SIM tray/slot, follow these easy steps:
1. Go to “Settings”.
2. Press “Reset” then “Reset Network Settings”
3. Go to “Cellular Data”
4. Press “APN”
5. Change APN. For postpaid: internet.globe.com.ph. For prepaid: http.globe.com.ph
6. Deactivate Wi-Fi to be able to browse using the SIM (click Wi-Fi menu, turn-off)
Disclaimer: Every time you remove your Micro-SIM and then re-insert it, you need to go through Steps 1-6 again.
Kids, is this a sign that the iPhone 4 is looming over the horizon? Oh dear lord I hope so. The micro sim was released a few days before the release of the iPhone 4 in the US and I shall take that as a sign. I asked a few Apple-savvy friends, as in the hardcore Apple lovers if they know anything about it's worldwide release and one of them who has never made a mistake when it come's to shit like this said that it'll either be August or September this year. But with all the problems the iPhone 4 has like the yellow line on it's retina display, the reception problem, it's glass back panel that gets shattered when you drop it, or the swapped volume buttons, I'm wondering if this'll prove to be true.
But don't get me wrong, despite all of this, I still want an iPhone 4. Don't really care much about the iPad because as I've told Jackie a million times, it's just a big ass iPod Touch that runs on IOS4. I'm saving up for it and when it does get released, I shall hang on for dear life at the Globe Business Center because I'm sure there'll be A LOT of people wanting to get their hands on one.
