Globe to sell Galaxy S3 Prepaid Kit at Php29,990

[Updated: It’s back to Php32,990.] We initially reported that telcos will not likely sell the Samsung Galaxy S3 on a prepaid kit plan. Turns out Globe Telecom has already announced that once all the pre-orders have been fulfilled, they will also offer it for prepaid subscribers.

On June 9, Samsung will be releasing the Galaxy S3 in retail stores with a suggested retail price of Php32,990.

Apparently, as early as May 23, reps from the Globe Social Media team have already shared that the prepaid kit will be offered at only Php29,990.

That’s a Php3,000 discount from the local SRP. I think it’s the first time we’ve seen the prepaid kit price being much cheaper than the retail price.

Updated: Globe rep has called and wanted to correct the details we got from their Facebook Page:

Globe Telecom starts offering the Samsung Galaxy S III for prepaid subscribers at a retail price of P32,990. The prepaid phone kit package comes with a free 6-month subscription to PowerSurf 99, which has 50MB of consumable data per month.

Postpaid subscribers can get Samsung’s newest flagship smartphone for as low as P1699 monthly under Globe Unli Surf Combo 999 with P700 monthly cashout, or P1999 monthly under Globe Unli Surf Combo 1799 with P200 monthly cashout for an extra P800 worth of monthly consumable amount for calls and texts. Both postpaid plans, touted as the best and most affordable offers in the market to date, are bundled with unlimited data and freebies. The Samsung Galaxy S III is available at all Globe Stores nationwide.

  3. That shouldn’t come as a surprise since that’s how it should be. In the US, for example, an unlocked phone becomes relatively more expensive than the ones sold by carriers. Phones sold in retailers that come unlocked ideally are more expensive but here in the Philippines, it’s competition that makes retailers lower their prices.

    Wow. A great offer from Globe. However, I have one question only, is the device lock-down to Globe network? Thanks.

    Had a chat with a Globe rep at their FB page.

    Me: Is is true that the prepaid kit will be 29,990?

    Hi @Paul; Prepaid Kit for Samsung Galaxy S III cost P 32, 990 with Free 6 months PowerSurf 99 subscription.

    Me: So the prepaid sim that comes along with the kit comes with the 6 months powersurf 99?

    Hi @Paul; prepaid kit has no SIM Card included

    Never saw a prepaid kit without a sim card lol.

  16. wag na uy. bili nalang ako sa labas. di pa nakalock sa globe. yung mga bibili at ipapaunlock edi mawawalan ng warranty. edi sa iba nlng na nakaunlock na agad, may warranty pa. kung 30k sana mejo ok pa e. pero hindi din. sa iba 30k may warranty. bulok pa naman signal ng globe lalo na HSPA or UMTS. pang GSM lang amp.
