The latest Globe SIM cards are 5G-ready, which means that you can browse the Internet in 5G speed as long as you are using a 5G-capable handset. But if 5G is not yet available in your area, or if you don’t have a 5G phone yet, don’t worry because your new Globe 5G-ready SIM can use 4G/LTE and 3G.

It’s time to upgrade to an LTE or 5G if you’re still using a 3G SIM. You can upgrade your Globe SIM without losing your old number, by buying an LTE Upgrade SIM. Just text UPGRADE to 8080 using your old non-LTE SIM. Afterwards, insert the new SIM and enter the 6-digit upgrade code when prompted.

The new Globe 5G-ready prepaid SIM card comes with ₱1 load and free 1GB of mobile data (good for 7 days) which you can redeem by downloading the GlobeOne app. You will also get free ₱50 and additional 1GB data by signing up for GCash using your new mobile number.

In some cases, Globe will immediately activate your new SIM after insertion as it can automatically detect the SIM. But if that doesn’t happen, you can manually activate your new Globe sim.

How to Activate Globe Sim: 3 Easy Ways

Follow any of these methods to activate your new Globe prepaid or postpaid SIM.

1. Turn on mobile data

The easiest way to activate your Globe SIM is to turn on mobile data. Insert your new SIM into your handset’s SIM slot and turn on mobile data. Globe will immediately detect that your SIM is trying to connect to the Internet and will send you a welcome text message. After you receive that text message, your new Globe SIM is now activated.

Since Globe will not give you free mobile data (unless you download the GlobeOne app first), you cannot surf the Internet yet. You can download the GlobeOne app to get your free 1GB data or buy prepaid load and subscribe to an Internet promo.

2. Call 222

If the previous method didn’t work, you can also activate your Globe SIM by calling 222. This is an automated call service and you will receive an SMS welcoming you to the Globe network as well as a summary of your load balance. If you receive those text messages, that means your Globe SIM is activated and you can now start texting, calling or surfing the Internet.

3. Dial *143#

Another way to activate your Globe prepaid SIM is to dial the USSD code *143# and navigate to My Account > Data Balance. You will receive an SMS response as well as a welcome message which indicates that your Globe SIM has been activated.


Now you know how to activate your fresh Globe sim easily! We’ve provided you with all of the necessary methods and steps through this article.

Be sure to load your Globe SIM to take advantage of Globe prepaid promos and to avoid possible disconnection due to inactivity.
