Is there a Smart, TNT promo for landline calls?

Unfortunately, none of Smart and TNT promos currently offer call allocation for landline numbers. So, when making calls, you have no choice but to pay the Php7.50/minute fee.

What promos are available for Smart and TNT prepaid subscribers?

Since the standard rate for landline calls is expensive, you might want to resort to other ways of communication to reach someone. It can be through mobile phone calls, SMS messages, or online. Fortunately, there are a lot of Smart prepaid promos and TNT promos available to choose from.

That’s it. Do you have any questions regarding landline/telephone calls on TNT and Smart? Let us know in the comments.
