Smart iPhone 5s and 5c Postpaid Plans

smart iphone 5s and 5c plans

So many choices! If you’re indifferent about the specific iPhone model you want and really just want .. an iPhone, it looks like the sweet spot for unlimited data on LTE would be the following:

– the iPhone 5c (16GB) on Plan 2000 for the UNLI Surf plan so you get your bottomless Internet package

– the iPhone 5c (16GB) on All-In Plan 1800 because even if you can get it free on Plan 2500, if you do the computations, shelling out an extra PHP 6,000 is better than the extra PHP 700 a month, which amounts to PHP 16,800 for the 24 month period lock in. This is because at Plan 1800 you’re well within range of these three promos: PHP 1,000 unlimited surfing, PHP 350 for 3,500 messages to all networks (yes including Globe!) and PHP 250 for 80 minutes of calling to all networks. So 1,000 + 350 + 250 = 1600 which leaves you with PHP 200 to consume for other things.

SMART Netphone Pricing for Postpaid and Prepaid

Well here it is! The moment you’ve been waiting for — NETPHONE PRICING SCHEMES! The first Netphone will be available on both prepaid and postpaid plans. You can hop on to for all the details but to sum up everything:

This is the list of plans on postpaid. And here is the list of daily and monthly “bite sized” plans for data.

If you look closely, there is an obvious “sweet spot” in the pricing scheme under the “all-in” unlimited monthly data for PHP 999 a month as apart from unlimited IM and social stream usage (that’s SmartNet, Facebook and Twitter), you also get 3,500 SMS messages and 200 minutes of voice calls. Insane. I’d change my 8 year old plan if I could.

If you’ve all been curious as to what exactly the Netphone can do, there’s a guided tour on the Netphone site.
