How to Check Your Balance on Globe or TM?

One of the most basic services of every telecommunications company is the ability to keep track of your load. Before all those promos and data, we only have Balance Inquiry. Would you believe that there was a time that unlimited text or unlimited calls does not exist? And phones can’t even access the internet. Those were the days where every peso counts. You pay a peso for every message of 300 words and seven pesos per minute of call. You won’t send out a simple “Hi” messages because that would be a waste. And as a student back then, balance inquiry is a constant textmate.

Now, there are way more options to communicate with people. We have the FB messenger, Viber, and may other mobile apps. Of course, we still have the typical prepaid or postpaid load. But now we consume them better with the promos offered by Globe or TM to their subscribers. With all those choices, we have more to keep track on. This article will discuss how to monitor all these.
