How to Use Facebook For Free Using Globe or TM [Extended]

Free FB, No WiFi Needed!

Globe Telecom recently launched a partnership with Facebook to offer the social media for free to its subscribers. It doesn't matter wether you use the Facebook App or your mobile browser.

However, many Globe and TM users complained that their load was still used up when they browsed Facebook. Hence, I decided to put up a definitive, step-by-step guide on how to use Facebook for free using a Globe or TM sim card.

How to Use Facebook For Free Using Globe or TM
"Free Data" appears above the Android Facebook app when using Globe or TM's Free Facebook access.

Step 1: Register for Globe Free Facebook Access


Using a cellphone with a Globe or TM sim, dial *143# and press the call button. A menu will appear enumerating 10 options. Choose Free FB by typing 2 and then press Send.

Another menu will appear with the statement "Libre ang Facebook sa Globe or TM! Post, Like at Chat sa cellphone! No WiFi needed!" Choose Start Now by typing 1 and then press Send.

You will then receive an SMS with a link to m.facebook.com/free. DON'T click that link yet. If you do that and you're not connected to a WiFi network, you might be charged.


Step 2: Configure Your Mobile Data Access

Restrict Background DataIn order to access Facebook for free, you must first have some sort of mobile data connection. If you're on prepaid like most of us, make sure you have the following APN settings:

Name: myGlobeInet
APN: http.globe.com.ph

This one is for Android phones:
Before you turn on your mobile internet, be aware that other apps can run in the background and access the internet without your knowledge. You MUST DISABLE them before you incur additional data charges.

To do so, go to Settings > Data Usage then tap the menu button and check Restrict background data.

If you turn on your mobile data right now, it will display G, E or H in the status bar depending on the signal in your area.


Step 3: Activate Globe Free Facebook for Your Account

Free Data Globe TMThis promo of Globe is integrated with Facebook. You have to provide Globe access to the information found in your Facebook account and Globe will then share your balance status with Facebook.

With your Mobile Data enabled, click the link on the SMS that you received or point your browser to m.facebook.com/free. You'll be prompted to login to Facebook first and you should do so.

You'll then be presented with the screenshot on the right (or top if you're reading this on your phone). Tap the Start button and you'll start enjoying Facebook for free.


Step 4: Enjoy Facebook for Free But... How Do They Make Money with This?

Facebook Standard Data Charges ApplyThat's the question that crossed my mind the first time I heard this very generous offer from Globe. It's a totally free access to Facebook. You can chat, view full sized photos unlike Facebook 0.

I'm not a Globe or TM subscriber so I bought a TM sim card for 20 Pesos - and that's one way that they make money out of this. Many will now consider switching to Globe because there's free Facebook!

Another is when you already use the service. If you click a link that will lead you outside of Facebook, you'll be warned that you might incur data charges. But, along with the warning is the offer to LOAN 10MB of data for 10 pesos. What a clever way to lure customers!


Promo Update:

Globe Telecom extended the free Facebook up to April 25, 2014 from the January 25 original schedule.

Update 2: Once again, Globe extended the promo to the last day of April 2014!

    I actually clicked http://m.facebook.com/free a long time ago and now, whenever I click it it says my free fb has expired. I can't even use any facebook app unless I register for ASTIGFB15. It's so frustrating. My build in O.M. seems to be still working kahit na MyGlobe INET na ang connection ngayon pero hanggang log in lang. Kng google naman hanggang search results lang. I really need help kng sino man may alam. My phone is nokia 2330c and has a built-in O.M. By the way, I can't use any downloadable O.M. It won't install especially ang connection nya MyGlobe INET. It always says "Timed out" or something like that. I usually and often use google like everday. I'm addicted to asking questions that's why google is my bestfriend. But that was before I can still use O.M. And then I'm stuck with Facebook. I rarely open my account 'cause I have google, but that's was before. I finally accepted facebook a little since I made a close friend with a stranger from across the globe but now I can't even use facebook manually. I'm about to throw my phone in total frustration but I still use it to read e-books. PLEEEAASE HELP ME!!! XD

  65. Tingin ko meron pa din talaga, nakakatuwa nga kasi sa frustration ko na maglog in kagabi, which is sarado na mga internet cafe, napilitan akong subukan ulit ito. Meron akong current promo na nakaregister ako, pan text and call lang for 3 days, wala akong extra load, siguro mga 3php nalang xD
    Pero nung pag tap ko sa data, nag H yung signal ang nagvirbrate na yung cp ko kasi sa mga notifs. Ang napansin ko, sa mobile app sya gumagana, mabagal sa browser, yung browser ko is google chrome and yung browser lang talaga hehe
    Pero mas mabilis a mobile app, minsan nagloloko nga lang kasi nagdodoble yung comments xDD

  66. saka take note, last year ata or nung January hanggang E lang yung signal ko, medyo nag improve na yung signal ng globe samin, hopefully di maapektuhan ng bagyong Glenda =.=

Sun kasi gamit ko ang I'm using the Facebook 0 kaso puro chat, status and comment lang nagagawa ko, di ko naviview yung mga images kaya gusto ko sana itry to kaso tapos na pala yung promo nila haha. Sana pag trinay ko naun di mabawasan yung globe load ko. Cheers!
