That didn’t take too long. Learned about this a couple of days ago but held off until it was official and the prepaid prices have been finalized. This is Globe Telecom’s response to Smart’s Unlimited Prepaid Blackberry Plans.
Subscribers can get unlimited BlackBerry service on their BlackBerry smartphones with new prepaid service plans for daily, weekly or monthly rates.
Daily Personal BlackBerry: Php50
5-Day Personal BlackBerry: Php220
Monthly Personal BlackBerry: Php1,200
The rates are almost similar to that of Smart. Smart’s weekly is Php300 for 7 days while Globe’s 5-day price is Php220.
The new prepaid BlackBerry service plans provide unlimited access to (push) email including Yahoo! Mail and Gmail; instant messaging via BlackBerry Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, and Windows Live Messenger; and social networking sites such as Facebook and Flickr.
To activate the prepaid BlackBerry service plans and experience unlimited BlackBerry service all day just text BB ON
The prepaid BlackBerry service will be activated on the customer’s Globe prepaid account and BlackBerry smartphone within 24 hours following the text message registration. Internet browsing is not included in the unlimited service and will be charged like any GPRS service for prepaid subscribers — P5 for 15 minutes for time-based browsing or P0.15/KB for volume-based browsing.
Note: Free use on Blackberry APN only. Additional charges will apply when Globe APN is used.
