I don’t think I can live without my mobile phone. I mean really, if you think about it, in this day and age it is impossible to do without it. We use it to talk, text, and chat with our family and friends, listen to music, watch movies, play games, and document our every day lives. It has become so important that when we leave it at home, or worse–lose it, our world comes crashing down and we go through our day lost and dazed.
Of course, it wasn’t always like this. There was a time when no one had mobile phones and you really needed to wait for the person you’ll be meeting and actually be mindful of the time and exact place. And when you’ve been waiting for an hour or more, you start imagining scenarios of what could’ve happened, and whether that person got into a serious accident or died (yes this especially comes to mind when you’ve been waiting for more than an hour). I remember my only means of communication back then was through public pay phone, which meant I had to memorize telephone numbers to make a call (or carry around an address book). I had my pay phone prepaid card in my wallet all the time, and that was pretty much my lifeline in case of an emergency. What crazy times! Imagine, going through life without a mobile phone. But those were the days, and for the most part I remember always being annoyed when people were late because you have no clue where they are.
Fast forward to 2015 and this all sounds so jurassic. Our mobile phones are now like powerful mini computers that work triple time to get things done, whether its for work or play. We have so many means of communication to choose from, I usually forget if I’m talking to someone via text, email, What’s App, Viber, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. I actually wish I had a master app that would combine all of these so I can manage and answer all at once without missing anything.
To keep up means having an intelligent phone and a service provider that could deliver and keep you connected. I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that I have since gotten a Globe Platinum line. Honestly, I never thought it would make a difference–I was so wrong. Being with Globe Platinum makes a world of difference. The service is outstanding, I actually have a Personal Relationship Manager who fixes everything I need via call or text. I even have the option of meeting one-on-one if I wanted (yes, they can go to your house). And any questions at all about my plan, what it includes, and having the option to add more services–it is all considered handled. I’ve never had this kind of experience before, and it feels amazing to be spoiled for a change.
Like when I got my Samsung Galaxy S6: I got this wonderful gadget a day before it was officially launched which made me feel oh so special. And get this, it was delivered to my house! No need to drive to a mall and go to the service center, it was dropped off at my doorstep, which was so convenient. Then, there were all these great perks that came with being a Globe Platinum subscriber, like free movie tickets, a VIP car service (via Volkswagen) to the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 event, discount vouchers and so much more. But the best thing about having a Globe Platinum plan is really the unlimited calls and texts to all networks and landlines, consumable roaming, worry-free mobile data, access to premium apps like Spotify Premium, NBA and HOOQ, and a Platinum Pack which includes Unli Facebook and Viber.
Since making the switch to a Platinum line, I can truly say I am treated like royalty. It feels just like making that jump from using a pay phone to a mobile phone–life is so much easier and convenient with Globe Platinum.
