It’s during this time of the year when we see telcos start pushing the sales of the iPhone as an anticipation to the announcement of the next one. Smart is acting this early by dropping the offerings for the iPhone 4S.
The original price plan for the iPhone 4S on UnliData Plan 2000 is Php2,500 cash-out.
Just recently, they’ve dropped the cash-out price and giving it free at UnliData 2000.
It’s not a huge drop but that move could also push the postpaid sales of the iPhone 4S in their network. And considering there are a couple other alternatives that are free at Unli Data Plan 2000 (Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X), the iPhone 4S needs a little bump.
We’re already expecting the iPhone 5 to be announced in September and we know Smart has ordered thousands (25,000 to be precise) of iPhone 4S last year so it’s time to empty the inventory.
