How to use glo bounce 30mb on Android, PC, Blackberry and other devices

(This post was last modified: 05-01-2014, 09:09 PM by hovatek. )

The glo bounce package gives you 30mb for every recharge of N200 and above. The 30mb is valid for 7 days and you can accumulate your megabytes. You get your 30mb each time even if you recharge 5 times in a day, so it's wisest you break your recharges into 200s to get the maximum free megabytes. 30 mb isn't much on android so follow this guide on id=117] how to control heavy data usage on android so you don't exhaust all your mb in minutes. To migrate to glo bounce, dial *170*4# . To check or confirm if you're on GLO bounce, dial #100# .
The problem experienced here is that when a glo subscriber subscribes for the Glo Bounce data plan, and receives 30MB worth of free internet data to browse with, he/she will not be able to use the free mb and any internet connection whatsoever will only redirect to the glo hsi portal. Also, browsing with an active internet data plan will just ignore the free 30mb data and keep working with the regular plan as normal.

To unlock this mysterious 30mb and get the GLO bounce to work on Android, PC, Blackberry and other devices, all you need to do
is carefully follow the steps I have outlined below:

Step 1: First, you have to be on the glo bounce package then make sure that your mobile phone or modem (whichever one you are trying to browse with) is configured with the gloflat internet setting. This is actually the default internet configuration for Glo, but if you do not already have it active in your mobile phone, you can request for it by texting flat to 1234 .
You could also manually set it up by creating a New configuration:
Account Name: gloflat
Access Point Name (APN): gloflat
Username: flat
Password: flat
Remember to activate it after configuration and set it as default, otherwise it won't work

Step 2: migrate to the Glo PAYU plan (Pay As You Use). To migrate to Glo PAYU, text PAYU to 127 . The Glo PAYU plan is a special plan that allows you to surf the internet at low costs using the available airtime on your phone (Have no fear, you will not lose your airtime). We have discovered that the free 30mb internet data is somehow bundled to your airtime and this means that your glo sim sees it as "airtime", so that's why you need to migrate to Glo PAYU to use it. If you're not migrated to PAYU, keep trying till you get a message like " Dear customer, you are using data at Pay-As-You-Use rates of 5 kobo per kB or N51.20 per MB. Send MENU to 127 for subscriptions as low as N100 for 13MB!"

Step 3: enjoy!

How to check megabyte / data bundle balance on GLO bounce
To Check your Data Balance on Glo Bounce, dial #122#, when you see the popup menu, it'll display your balance.

51. I browse using 0FB and still get charged, what can be wrong?
There are 3 reasons:
a. You have clicked an external link – for instance a video or another website while on facebook. This takes you outside facebook and that link is not free. You will be charged. For example, if you click a YouTube video during this period, you will be charged for it.

c. Your phone (or other app on your phone) may be running some programs at the background using background data.
52. I browse only facebook but still get charged for zero facebook, what can be wrong?
During the login process, facebook encrypts your user data (username and password) to prevent your account from unauthorized access. During the login process, even our network cannot read the data between your phone and facebook, so the log in process is charged. This is usually not a large amount of data and so will not cost too much – however the amount will vary from device to device. After log in, you will continue to browse for free.

No, unless you change the configuration of your device to WAP or Glo Direct.

Yes. 0FB is text only (via a browser) not via app.
55. What if I connect my phone as a modem to my PC and browse facebook, will I be charged?
We will not charge you for facebook, but because your PC will have other applications running (such as Windows Update, Anti-virus update etc), your computer may browse and download other data that will be outside of facebook. We will charge you for these.

60. Can the 1st 60 seconds (1st minute) of the day be cumulative?
The 1st 60 seconds daily threshold can be achieved either through onnet (Glo-to Glo) calls, offnet (Glo to other networks) OR a combination of both onnet and offnet calls

63. What happens if the duration of my 1st local call of the day call is less than a minute (60 seconds)?
Bounce is a per second plan so subsequent seconds of your local calls will be cumulated and charged at 40K/sec until the 1st 60 seconds threshold for the day is attained from when you start getting charged either 5K/s or 12K/s depending on the call direction and your location (on or off campus).

I was migrated out of the bounce plan. I've been dailing the codes since with no response. Any suggestions on what I should do?
@chris619, that's most likely because your line was inactive for a while. Call customer care and ask to be migrated back to GLO Bounce.
