Globe Rewards unveiled new partners and offers yesterday, making their customer rewards program more flexible and accessible at the same time. Points already allow you to redeem telecom service promos, leisure items and gadgets, but now you can even them to pay for real life purchases. Pretty neat!
For those who don’t know, today is the launch of Globe’s Samsung Galaxy S4! For those who pre-ordered, you’ll be able to claim your unit today at the NBC Tent in Fort Bonifacio from 4PM to 8PM. Check out the photo gallery after the jump.
Smart Communications’ first ever prepaid LTE service in the country has gone live yesterday, just around a year after they officially unveiled their commercial LTE mobile data service to postpaid subscribers in our country. Check out all the details that you need to know after the jump.
Smart just announced the most affordable unlimited surfing mobile surfing promo in the Philippines called as the Opera UnliSurf15. For only Php15 a day, you’ll be able to enjoy all your online activities without breaking the bank. Check out the full details after the break.
Globe outs a new promo that lets users ‘create’ their own promo depending on their needs. A lot of people on prepaid are usually limited to the promos offered by telcoms and for most of them, that’s tiring since they usually avail those with only several days of use.
One thing about living in the Philippines is that we don’t get to enjoy the same kinds of speeds and access to content that other countries like the U.S. enjoy. One such service is movie streaming, and much of this has to do with the lack of these kinds of providers, not to mention the necessary speeds to make the whole experience enjoyable.
If you don’t want to get an LTE plan because of its hefty price, then take a look at this new offering from SMART. But before you collect your papers and go out to apply for the said plan, you should take a look on the conditions and cap. Yes, if you want to avail of this cheap offer, you need to bear with the cap.
Christmas is over and I know most of you now have your pockets full (hopefully!). Don’t have an idea on which android phone to buy? Well, if you don’t mind the brand name, take a look at CloudFone android phones that are currently available for trade-in. Yes, you can swap your old phone for a new smartphone!
The much-awaited Apple iPhone 5 made waves in the Philippine shores in the last few days because of its launch next week. It’s not only the Apple fanatics who are gearing up for the launch of iPhone 5 but as well as two of the top telcoms in our country. Check out the Smart and Globe iPhone 5 Plans after the jump.
We just found out that SMART Communications will officially be carrying both Google Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 in the Philippines. The Google Nexus 4, which is a tie-up between Google and LG, was recently launched just the end of October so it’s really a good thing that it will reach our country before the holiday season.
Mobile internet is a luxury to some people, especially the millions of Filipinos who still can’t afford even the most basic smartphone or waste credits on a prepaid promo data plan. However Globe and Google have taken steps to change that by offering free internet for Globe and access to select Google services, including Google Search, Gmail and Google+. Most Filipinos will likely find Google Search to be the most interesting service since it will allow you to search and visit any site from the provided search results for free. Pretty handy for students doing their research if you ask me.
We recently attended a media event by BPI Express Mobile and Smart at T.G.I. Friday’s Glorietta. Basically, if you haven’t tried mobile banking yet, now is the time to get started, especially with BPI Express Mobile and Smart Communications launching the Enroll, Load and Win promo for Smart and Talk N’ Text subscribers who use BPI Express Mobile.
Smart and Globe already started the pre-order for the much anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which is expected to be launched in the Philippines at the end of the month. The Galaxy Note 2 will be offered for free under Smart’s UnliData Plan 2000 while Globe makes a counter offer by offering it at Globe UnliSurf Plan 2499.
Smart is now offering a cheaper service of mobile broadband internet as it amends the 2 days UnliSURF with a price tag of Php85. The cost of one day surfing is Php50 so subscribing to two days will save you Php15. This unlimited broadband internet on prepaid suits people who just needs internet connection when they’re out of town or for plain surfing in a not so regular manner.
