I received the long-awaited Globe 4438 message from on my cellphone today. I was expecting it to come earlier though, I didn't think I'd receive it by 7pm at night. We were all kept guessing as to what 4438 stands for and now it's finally out in the open.
Today, April 4, 2010, is a truly special day for all Globe postpaid, prepaid, Tattoo, and TM subscribers. If you've been one forever like I've been -- I got my Globe postpaid account way back in the late 90s -- then you'll be just as thrilled as I am by My Rewards.My Globe (TM Astig Rewards for TM subscribers) that was just launched today.
