There’s trouble in paradise.
Globe, Raft3r’s mobile phone provider, has reached new heights of foolishness. I wanted to use foul words. But my mom taught me better than that.
My iPhone postpaid subscription was temporary cut off since next month’s phone bill has allegedly reached P13000 ($266)!
The culprit? Globe blames it on net surfing. Raft3r calls it crazy.
Who in their right mind would spend 13 grand on internet browsing alone? Seriously, who does that?
Raft3r has WiFi at home. So why bother using the iPhone for internet connection.
What is even more astonishing is the fact I had my 3G disabled since day 1. Baffling, isn’t it?
The Globe customer representative Raft3r spoke with spilled the beans. A lot of other iPhone subscribers experienced the same dilemma. Apparently, it’s a glitch in their system. Of course, Globe will not admit to this.
Those idiots from Globe will not reinstate my iPhone connection until I pay the bill. Raft3r refuses to pay for something he did not even use.
Who would be the first to cave in? Let the battle begin.
Wow! That piece of news really sucks! Big time. Buti na lang di ka inatake nung nakita mo ung bill. hehe.
thescud, Those bastards! Hehe
Waah I bet mas mahal pa sa electric bill nyo ang iphone bill mo. Sobra namang sugapa sa pera yang Globe. Mali na nga nila isisisi at ipapasa pa sa subscribers nila. Gatong eh 'no?:D Seriously, di mo talaga dapat bayaran.
wendy, Shall we sue? Hehe
uy you're right, don't pay up.
sinasabi na nga ba, me catch ang iPhone na yan pagdating dito. masyadong dugyot ang developing country natin para ma-enjoy w/o hitches ang iphone. hehe.
asan na nga pala ang itouch? me pangalan na ko dun - sheena. ahoy.
judayski, Hmmm... Potential buyer. Pwede! Hehe
Boo Globe! Boo!
When I first got my iPhone, I was unaware of that as well. I paid like triple the price on my monthly subs - expensive than the normal long distance call. It is really cool to use Safari in your iPhone to browse around the net so minsan nakakalimutan mo na pala na out of the blue, ndi ka na naka wifi. I even made this big scene in the phone shop about the fees but I learned my lesson, 'ask first before hitting enter button'. At the end, I just have to pay the price.
Now I signed up for the unlimited usage, that way, I can browse via my iPhone 24/7 worry-free.
Browsing from Kengkay (for free).
ganns, Strike na ito! Hehe
k, Thanks for the tip. Welcome to The Deadbeat Club!
That's a load of BullCrap! Why are they making you pay for something that's not even your fault? I say, stand your ground. Hopefully they fix it and reinstate the phone.
Buti na lang I have unlimited usage on my Blackberry. I've been surfing on it when I'm too lazy to use my computer, like when I'm laying down on my bed. Otherwise, my bill will probably be higher than yours!
P13,000 is a lot! Why pay up for something you don't owe?
laieesha, Yun nga. Wala unlimited usage dito sa Pinas, eh. Sabi ko nga buti pa at&t meron. Hehe
len, Salamat. Makibaka! Hehe
hirap naman nyan, so easy to say na hindi bayaran pero papadalhan ka nila ng mga collector's notice from law firms, tatakutin ka, lahat ng means para magbayad ka
june, Totoo. Pero patigasan na ire. Hehe.
Denoy, DON'T PAY! Manigas ang globe paniningil sayo, hehehe. Why pay for something you didn't benefit? Oi, tuloy tayo sa dec. 5 ha. See yah! (,")
Maybe we should:) NTC ang alam kong may jurisdiction dyan.
Huwhaaat?! Thirteen thousand for internet surfing? Are they serious?
Sue those blood-sucking bastards!
ganyan din dito. ang daming pinapadalang bills na hindi naman dapat bayaran kasi hindi naman kami gumamit. tapos hanngang may lawyer na papasok. yung ibang takot sa mga lawyers, edi bayad na agad. so kita na sila dun. e kami sempre alam namin na mali yung bills na yon, edi patagalan talaga. yung isa nga e inabot ng one year, sinasagot ko ng english pinapadalhan ako ng summons in deutsch, sino panalo? si kengkay! mahaba yata pasensya ko
ayan nagsimula na ang problema. sana maayos kaagad para hindi na nila sisihin ang mga subscribers.
Goodness ang tagal kong di nakabisita!!
pero mas OMG itong balitang ito tsk tsk.
let the battle begin talaga :)
tatambakan kita ng comments hee :)

wendy, Akala ko pang scam text messages lang sila! Hehe
andy briones, Gusto ko nga silang murahin para matauhan ng todo. Nyahaha
kengkay, Ang mundo puno ng manloloko at nagpapaloko. Hehe
thedong, Ayusin sana nila. Kung hindi pasensyahan na lang. Hehe
Look what ur iPhone did to you.. Joke! I agree! The amount is so over the top.. who in their right mind would spend such amount for net surfing only.. that's way too much and totally absurd and illogical for someone to do! wag kang magbayad raft3r!
I can feel the pain living in your blog
And I know how hard you try
You deserve to have much more
I can feel your anger and I sympathize
And I'll never criticize
Instead, I'll support you GO Raft3r!
