There may be times when you run out of prepaid load and there’s no way to buy load at that moment. What are you going to do in that situation? Thanks to the TM Utang Load service, you can borrow load from TM (or Touch Mobile) so that you don’t have to look for the nearest sari-sari store to buy prepaid load.
With the TM Utang Load service, you can borrow various load denominations and promos which you can repay at a later date. You can borrow load from TM ranging from ₱5 to ₱60 as well as some popular promos like GoSurf. The loan amount plus the corresponding service charge will be deducted on your next reload or top-up.
The TM Utang Load service is open to all TM subscribers but the availability of certain load denominations and promos depends on certain factors such as how long you’ve been a TM subscriber and how quickly you repaid your previous loans. New TM subscribers start with the lowest priced offers like SURFSOS. So the more you buy load, register to promos and borrow load, the more TM Utang Load offers you can avail of.
The next time you run out of load, just remember that you can borrow load from TM, so you don’t have to request a pasaload from your friends. Be sure to repay your loan as soon as possible to remain eligible for TM Utang Load offers in the future.

The service fee is equivalent to 20% of the regular price of the load or promo, rounded off to the nearest peso value. The service fee is fixed, and no interest is charged to the subscriber no matter how long the loan is repaid.
Promos that you borrowed from the TM Utang Load service cannot be extended. However, you can borrow load from TM to extend your regular promo subscription.
You can borrow only one load denomination or promo at a time. If you have an unpaid loan, you must repay it before you can borrow again. The load or promo amount that you borrowed will be deducted from your balance upon your next reload or top-up.

How to Pay Your Loan
TM will automatically deduct the loan amount from your prepaid load balance upon your next reload or top-up. It will not be deducted if your load balance is lower than your loan amount, so make sure to reload a sufficient amount to pay off your outstanding loan.
