Going abroad but still want to keep in touch with families and friends like you were still in the Philippines? No worries! Globe provides globe users who like to travel outside the country a convenient way to activate their SIM Prepaid on ROAM Mode.
In line with this, it is a rule that you should activate your Globe SIM Roaming feature 24 hours before your departure. Also, you need to at least load up your SIM a load amount of about 100-150 Philippine Pesos.
Luckily, there are only 2 ways you can successfully activate your Globe Roaming:
1st Option: Activate your SIM Roaming through SMS
Step 1: To activate your Globe SIM Roaming through SMS (Text), text GROAM ON <Start Date mm/dd/yyyy> <number of days> to 2884.
For example: GROAM ON 09/20/2017 to 2884
Step 2: You will then receive a text message in saying that Globe has successfully received your request.
Text Message Translated:

When you are already out of the country, you will then receive a confirmation text message that indicates that your Roaming is already active.
