    @andre – yup, looks like it.

    @julian – regular internet browsing is charged separately.

    @kerov7 – check out the mobile shops at Mall of Asia, Park Square 1 and CyberZone SM Megamall.

    how will the messaging work? do you have to tag your pin to smart network? or no need to tag?
    how about for the we browsing, what will be the right APN to use?
    thanks,

  7. Sabi ko na nga ba at may mag o-offer rin ng prepaid sooner or later. Tinapon tapon ko pa yung prepaid sim ko para lang kumuha ng line sa Globe. Grrrr.

    Nice! I hope Globe will have a similar service for Prepaid/Postpaid subs who does not want to avail of their current BlackBerry add-on plan.

    Though, I have an issue with setting up Push Mail on my BB Storm 9500. Can’t seem to get an option for Personal mail; I only see an option for Enterprise accounts. How can I fix this? Got my BB Storm from my cousin; it’s open-line by the way.

  16. hmmmm…Php 300 for 7 days? that’s 1200 a month, which is exactly how much i’m paying for my bb plan from globe…well plus 149 for the data plan…

  17. So, it’s basically an unlimited internet plan on a small screen with only a teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeny count of websites you can access.

    Is this some sort of joke being played by Smart? Because, you know, April Fool’s over.

  18. Smart has another unlimited push email promo for only Php200/month. See the link below.

    I think this is more applicable to those who don’t have BB devices.

  23. Does anyone already tried this service? Any feedback?

    Reply
  24. I tried it.

    IT DOES NOT WORK.

    SMART DOES NOT TELL YOU HOW TO MAKE IT WORK.

    I CALLED SMART CUSTOMER SCARE, IT DROPPED MY CALL TEN TIMES.

    I give up.

  25. really? i called customer care too a while back and asked about this. the call center representative told me to call another number as anything related to blackberry should call the postpaid hotline. i told her that this isn’t about postpaid. and this is for smart buddy. apparently, she is unfamiliar with this new blackberry prepaid service. she asked to put me on hold for 2-3 mins. then when she got back to me, she said,

    CSR: are you still on the line?
    ME: yes..
    CSR: are you still on the line?
    ME: yes, yes..
    CSR: sorry, i hear no response. goodbye.

    I was like WHAT? I know she can hear me. hindi nya siguro alam kung anong sasabihin nya. what’s happening smart?
