Are text messages sent from globfone.com the same as traditional text messages from mobile phones ?
In some cases, the text messages sent from Globfone will be of different type that we call “SMS Lite”. They will be displayed on the mobile phone screen but won’t be copied to the memory of the handset. ATTENTION: Some GSM handsets will not play incoming message sound for these messages!
A message sent by me was never delivered to the recipient. Why ?
This can happen for several reasons. Not every mobile phone can receive text messages. Text messages may also be left undelivered or delayed for some time for many reasons, which we cannot control or influence. Sometimes, it's about technical difficulties on the provider's side. If your message is very important to you, we recommend calling the person you wish to contact or leaving a voice message for them instead of texting. Please do not contact us to inform that your message was not received. Always check twice that the number you entered is correct, and has the correct format.

How long can I talk/call via globfone.com ?
The duration of your connection depends on the area you're calling - the prices of calls to various countries and networks vary and so does the connection time. It's best to call the number via GlobFone and check.
Does GlobFone provide good sound quality during calls ?
YES. Because our calls are based on VoIP technology, they can rival the traditional phone connections. A very slow Internet connection may degrade the quality of your call but the broadband connections used nowadays are typically much faster than minimal requirements of VoIP technology.
