You see… When Facebook announced its new Java App for Every Phone, Smart Communications and Globe Telecom were listed among those partner-carriers to offer its respective subscribers free data access to the social networking site. Smart confirmed the free service offer, while Globe Telecom said they don’t. Now that Smart subscribers are already taking advantage of this free Facebook access since last month, I thought it won’t make any sense for Globe if they don’t offer similar service. And I think I’m right, because by now up until October 31, 2011 – you should also be able to access Facebook for free through Globe’s network.
But before you get started, you’ll need to do few things.
First, send FB to 2910. You’ll receive an SMS from 2910 with a link to download the Facebook app (It’s actually at http://m/globe.com.ph/facebookapp). You’ll be asked to install the app in the succeeding steps.
You’re required to use MyGlobe Connect as your access point (APN Settings) when using the app, else standard rates may apply. If you have any concern, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.
