Purchase apps from the Window Mobile Store with Globe

Globe Telecom has recently announced the expansion of its Direct Carrier Billing (DCB) service which now include customers with smartphones running on the Windows operating system (OS).

The Windows Mobile Store direct carrier billing service gives Microsoft Lumia and Windows phone users an easy, convenient, and secure channel to download and purchase their choice of applications and in-app content without the need for a credit card. Instead, Globe Postpaid, Prepaid, and TM customers can now charge their Windows Mobile Store purchases straight to their postpaid bill or prepaid load.

To activate the service, users must first set up their device’s location to determine which Windows Mobile Store catalog and payment options will be made available on their device. The Windows Mobile Store app will automatically recognize Globe as the mobile phone’s carrier and will put it as one of the payment methods available.

Once phone setup is complete, users can login using a Microsoft account (formerly Windows Live ID), accept the Windows Mobile Store Terms of Use and Privacy Agreement, open the Windows Mobile Store, select the app they wish to purchase, await purchase verification, and confirm their mobile phone account or Globe account as their chosen method of payment.
