The Globe Family Pack SIM is a prepared SIM package from Globe Telecoms, which targets Filipinos living abroad, thus, Overseas Filipino Workers. The package comes with either two or three SIM prepaid cards that can be linked together. Once the SIM cards are linked, you can roam and enjoy unlimited talking with the other party in the Philippines. Although the pack of three SIM cards is pre-activated for roaming, you can activate the two pack SIM card via SMS.
