The Philippines maybe is the number one text capital of the world because Filipinos consume almost of their time texting - whoever, wherever and whenever. Pinoys love texting simply because of the close-family-ties, wide network of friends, cheap means of communication, a lot of vacant time and mostly because anyone could get a cellphone than they could get a laptop or a personal computer to use the internet.
Load your Globe, Smart, Sun Prepaids and Roaming
When SMS and text messaging invaded the Philippines, Globe Telecom and Smart Communications, Inc. were the two giant companies that provided awesome service of telecommunication. Few years later, there came Sun Cellular that shocked not only the nation but the two giant telecom companies because of its 24/7 unlimited call and text messaging for a fixed price for Sun-to-Sun transactions. Apparently, Globe and Smart then mimicked Sun’s great strategy to get back their old subscribers. And so all is very cheap now in the Philippine texting leisure.
Globe, Smart and Sun International Roaming Services
Whether you are in the Philippines or abroad, you can still call and text or browse the internet with shocking low charges through roaming services. Yes, it's the cheapest international phone cards. You can also buy your international calling cards online. Choose your subscriber below to go on the links for the complete steps on how to activate roaming services.
**Touchmobile is a subsidiary brand of Globe Telecom while Talk and Text is under Smart Communications

dial continuously without space after the 1510
Christine Delfin on February 28, 2013:
Bakit kapag dina-dial ko ang 1510 + 14 digit PIN ng SMART prepaid card ko, ang laging voice recording na naririnig ko ay, the subscriber you are calling may be reached thru text messaging. Then beeping sounds habang nakasulat sa screen ng phone ko Check Info Service. Papaano ko ma-i-lo-load ang prepaid card na ito?
Feel_Free on October 30, 2012:
Once the Roaming Service is activated, out-going and in-coming calls will be disabled, you can only send and receive text messages. Hence, dialing (1510 + 14 digit PIN) absolutely will not work. You can recharge your sim card thru sending text message as detailed below:
a. Lightly scratch off the protective ink on your Call and Text Card* to reveal the 14-digit PIN.
b. Type in "Reload (14 digit PIN)" and send to 1510.
c. You will receive a text message confirming that the reload attempt is successful.
- You should have remaining airtime balance so that you can send SMS.
- You will be charged P17.50 per airtime reload via SMART Money.

If after too many attempts, return the prepaid card to the Globe store where you bought it. They will surely replace it.

Hi there I am newly visited to philipine I am staying in Saudi for almost 11years and I heard for choosing globe,smart,sun But I prefer using mobily but for philipinos traveling abroad If You like to continue your same line for sawa,zain,mobily select settings then phone settings then network selection then manual and after searching you will found the list of operators select any of them sun,globe etc but you select globe. Because globe is the cheapest rate and here are list:
calling to Ksa 4.50SR PER MIN
Local calls 1.42SR PER MIN
SMS 1.50SR PER MIN
Receiving calls 3.5SR PER MIN
But if you select sun or smart it will cost higher value and expensive Here as Below:
Call to Ksa 18SR PER MIN
Local Calls 4.50SR PER MIN
SMS 2SR PER SMS
Receiving Calls 4SR PER MIN
Calling to Ksa 7SR PER MIN
Local calls 4.50SR PER MIN

@Kaye - I'm still using Smart prepaid. 1510 + PIN is still the way to load it. Just check the card you bought and the expiry date. Maybe it's expired that's why it's not loading..

You must scratch lightly but in any case that the pin aren't clear anymore, contact your prepaid card provider or your supplier to solve such issues.
h. k. on December 27, 2010:
what if you over-scratched your prepaid card that the call and text card number and pin aren’t clear anymore ?!
