How to Load your Globe, Smart, Sun Prepaid Cards?

Updated on February 17, 2013

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.

      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?

      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.

      @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.

      what if you over-scratched your prepaid card that the call and text card number and pin aren’t clear anymore ?!
