Smart subscribers with a craving for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 can now get the phablet for free through the carrier’s All-In or Unlimited postpaid data plans.
All available plans from Smart with a bundled Note 3 phablet are listed below:
All-In Plan (Monthly Fee – Device Price)
- 500 – Php28,000
- 800 – Php23,000
- 1200 – Php17,750
- 1800 – Php4776 (or Php199/month)
- 2500 – FREE
Smart’s All-In plan lets subscribers choose a number of freebies (e.g. free local and IDD texts, calls, Internet access, etc.) depending on their chosen monthly fee. Plans 1800 and 2500 have a 24-month contract.
Unli Postpaid Plan (Monthly Fee – Device Price)
- 999 – Php24,000 (or Php1,000/month)
- 1600 – Php13,000
- 2000 – FREE
The Unli postpaid plan comes with an unlimited LTE connection, as well as free calls for up to 150 minutes and 200 free texts every month. Plan 2000 has a 30-month lock-in period.
As of this writing, Smart’s online store lists the Note 3 as sold out, although that hardly comes as a surprise what with the device’s popularity and impressive features. In the meantime, users can opt for an email/text notification when the device gets restocked. Users may also go to the nearest Smart store and inquire about availability.
Globe, on the other hand, has launched a Note 3 portal on its website where interested subscribers can submit their contact information and get informed once the device is available. Included in Globe’s phablet package is the new Galaxy Gear, Samsung’s first major entry to the brewing smartwatch wars.
