Upgrade your Globe 2G/3G SIM to 4G LTE/5G-ready SIM for free


Globe is offering its users who are still using 2G or 3G SIMs an opportunity to upgrade their aging SIMs to 4G LTE/5G-ready SIM in order to give them the best mobile Internet experience possible.

Upgrading your SIM is fairly easy. Check first if your existing SIM is 2G or 3G by texting SIM CHECK to 8080. Once it has been verified to be an older SIM, you’ll need to follow these steps:

  • Register for an appointment via this link or through the GlobeOne app. Choose the store location, date, and time that you want to visit.
  • If you can’t find your nearest branch in the list to book an appointment, you can just simply walk in and a store personnel will assist you in the upgrade process on a first come, first served basis.
  • Stores with express booths will also give priority to customers who need to upgrade their SIM.

Globe has provided a list of stores that will assist you in upgrading your SIM. The list will include stores that require booking and those with express booths.


If you are a postpaid 3G user, you can skip the store altogether and simply request for a SIM change via the GlobeOne app. The new SIM will be delivered to your registered address by a courier.
