Lie, Cheat, Steal
Its been around 2 weeks since I have had filed a complaint to Globe. Why? Well I had my Globe Credits Eaten. Yup click that to read my rant there on how everything happened. Well basically, I have had been very patient on Globe fixing this problem. Actually I have the idea that the problem is really on their end and not mine.
As of today, I was lurking around the internet, and I stumbled upon a discussion on mylot.com saying that there is a new way on how to hack Globe Prepaid Load. I was kind of skeptical but suddenly I remembered that my problem about my Globe credits getting eaten is still up! It is still haunting me, matter of fact whenever I would register for sulitxt or unlitxt, I would just make sure that my remaining balance is only 1 peso since I know that my balance would get eaten without my knowledge.
After I read the post, in a snap I knew that my case was not isolated, I knew that I am not alone. So I looked for others who had the same problem and after asking by bestfriend mr. Google, he did not gave me any answers, but rather pointed me to the people who knew the answers regarding this controversial matter.
So far these are what I have learned from this Globe Prepaid Load Hack.
Ø The people behind this are originally from Pampanga
Ø The way to learn this is to join their forum “pinoywap.net” but the problem is they have their registration deactivated (hmm, smells something fishy here) I am not sure if this is the real forum or whatnot since I was not able to register and see the contents of the forum itself.
Ø Another way is through word of mouth, but just like “magicians”, they would not want their tricks to be exposed.
Ø The glitch is supposed to work only on phones within the range, just like Bluetooth, it also works within range, so the best place to do this glitch is on places where there are many people (e.g. malls, cellphone tiangge like greenhills and such)
Ø This glitch can destroy sim cards
Ø There is a rumor that this kind of hack works from place to place, meaning, if for example the glitch was fixed on Pampanga area, there is still a big chance that the glitch may still be working on other areas like Manila, Cavite, and whatnot.
Ø I do not know if this also works on Smart subscribers.
Ø This was done using Nokia Phones. I have no idea if this also works on Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Motorola or other mobile phone brands.
Ø You must do this with a zero balance on your acount
Some of the users who knew how to do it said that the glitch was fixed on October 15, 2008, because they noticed that at around 1:00 AM, Globe’s Cellphone signal was off and was activated after a few hours, and when they tried to test it, the glitch was not working anymore, but there were a few users who said that the glitch is still working for them.
How this works:
Well there are two ways that I know that somehow tells you that your load has been stolen / eaten, and in my opinion does work.
1st way – the easiest to know, check your balance, if you have just reloaded your account and after a few minutes to a couple of hours your prepaid load disappeared without doing anything then that load has been transferred to someone without your knowledge.
2nd way – you are not doing anything but you suddenly received a message that you have shared – a – load to a number. Yup! Even if you are or you are not registered.
Okay now, I know that you have been skimming for the way on how to Hack the Globe Prepaid Load or also known as Steal – a – load, so here it is:
On your handset go to menu > settings > phone settings > network selection / settings
Then there would be two choices Automatic and Manual
Then there would be a couple of networks that would be listed there, choose Smart Gold and you’ll get an error saying “No Network Access”
Do that for around 5 times, don’t mind the error.
Then after that, check your balance only ONCE.
Simple as that!
I know that this should be top secret but not anymore!
Did it work for me? Well, uhm, yeah, I was surprised on how I did do it, but it worked the very first time I did it. Napamura pa nga ako kasi bigla nagkaload eh zero siya nung una kong chineck.
How much did you get? It’s a bit hilarious but, only 16 pesos. Haha. Well maybe because I did it here at home and not on a crowded place.
How can we protect ourselves from this? Well if there is a flaw there is a way to temporarily fix it. To be able to be protected by it, you must put a password on your share – a – load registration or if you are already registered, turn the password protection for share – a – load ON.
I have already filed a complaint back then on Globe but it seem that they were turning a blind eye and having deaf ears regarding this exploit that people abuse. Well if they don’t want to fix it, then don’t, fixing it or not, it’s still a win – win situation for use Globe subscribers.
There may be other people who would be mad about exposing this method, but still some would be glad to know how to do this.
Even if I would hide this soon, others would still expose this, so as for me, I should better share it to everyone. Hindi naman ako madamot eh. Wag lang ako ang kukunan niyo ng load.
Happy steal – a – loading. Hope this glitch works for you.
You’ve been officially Jargonized! Think you know? But you have no idea.
