I just discovered this thing that is available on all Globe Prepaid accounts. Apparently, anyone can check anyone’s remaining prepaid balance just by dialing a USSD code. The steps are dead-simple.
All you have to do is dial *143#, then choose option 2 then 2 again, or *143*2*2# (shortcut) and enter the 10 digit Globe Prepaid number (i.e. 9171234567). And whoala! You just seen someone else’s prepaid balance. This is kind of creepy though. Someone can view your balance and use it against your (or our) lies that you don’t have a balance to send a message or make a call.
This is also useful, in the same situation. You can check if the one you’re texting or calling is saying he or she don’t have a load and tell them “Well, last I checked you have P500 load!”.
What do you think? Is this a good thing or should Globe take this feature away now?
