From my experience, roaming charges (costs incurred in another country) ARE NOT included in our consumables and are billed ON TOP of our Monthly Service Fees.
I agree with @ChitoReyes - it is charged on top of your Monthly Plan. The consumable amount is applicable only in the Philippines. You might consider getting a local sim in the country of your destination.
Welcome to the Globe Community. I am glad you have come to share your Globe life with us.
Before you proceed in reading my reply, please take note of the following:
I don't represent Globe Telecom or any of its Third Party Vendors in any of my message.
It is my personal belief that we are all created. Therefore, we are all creatures here.
If you believe otherwise, you may let me know.
Moving on with your concern.
I checked my previous bills, and I noticed that all International Roaming Charges are charged to my Consumable amount.
Therefore, International Roaming Charges are not billed on top of the Monthly Serives Fees, except of course if your roaming charges exceeds your consumable amount, common sense applies.
The Consumable Amount is applicable not only to the Philippines but to other parts of the universe as well, terms and conditions apply.
I don't recommend buying a local SIM of your destination.
There's PowerRoam and other Roaming Products you can choose from. Unless you want to send this message to your family and friends.------ SMS ------From: +6****4479947Received: Jan 5, 2012 9:10 AMKmusta n kayo lhat jan.ito n nga pla bgo roaming # ko.magpadala ko ng package jan.next week p ako mkakapagpadla ng pera kc na delay sahod ko..ingat kayo palage.GOD BLESS

I will not beg to disagree.
Before I answered this thread, I checked my Billing Statement for the periods when I visited Tokyo and KL. And part of my consumables were allocated for my Roaming Charges.
Did you check yours? I can show you mine.
Hello, @hcescala .
Our sweet exchanges last night regarding this topic were deleted.
I may have to agree with the creature moderator's action, whatever, whoever, whichever, wherever, whenever he/she/they/it is/are/was/were.
I just hope it's not counted as a violation for another Account Suspension Warming.
I still deserve the Purple Font Color.

Hi @annebermal im glad it is clear now.
Temporary disconnection will just moved your lock up period to additional month or so depending on your request since hindi mo naman ginamit Plan mo that time at wala kang binayaran na bill
Note: Temporary disconnection will disable your Globe service, means wala kang signal na ma rereceive, kaya dapat may prepaid ka pa rin for means of communication sa pinas
@annebermal as far as i know 60 days yung maximum nila but don't buy it, what i did before i left the country for 6 months training, pina temporary disconnect ko muna ng maximum allowed nila then tumawag ako ulit before magreconnect yung account ko for extension ng temp disconnection since auto reconnect sya ng system nila. Madami kc kami nagtraining that time at naka postpaid yun ang ginawa namin. 6 months temporary disconnetion. Pero kung may kaibigan ka or friend pwede mo naman ilipat yung account mo sa kanila yun din advise ng taga Globe sa isang friend ko na magta-travel.
Hello, @annebermal .
I am now calling the Globe Business Hotline. I will let them review my Billing Statements.
By the way, you may try to request for the temporary disconnection of the account and have it connected once you are ready to use the account.
Or maybe you can avail of any Roaming product for as low as 499.
Please take note that you cannot apply for another line if you have a temporary disconnected account. It's either you preterminate it or continue using the account.
Before you "Go right ahead and use your phone overseas" as advised by @GIBO , you may want to avail any of Globe's Roaming Products.
@GIBO Can't she go left ahead instead?
