Smart Data Plan 1000 vs. Unli Data Plan 2000

Smart today announced a new data plan for postpaid subscribers, the Smart Limited-Edition Data Plan 1000. Although it’s just a limited-edition plan and is only offered until May 15, 2012, the new data plan compliments the existing Plan 2000 which comes with free choice of a flagship handset.

The current Smart Unli Data Plan 2000 comes with a choice of Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy Nexus and HTC Sensation XE w/ Beats Audio for free. The monthly allocations for the plan is 200 SMS and 150 minutes of free voice calls to any network. It also comes with unlimited mobile internet.

Now comes the limited-edition Limited-Edition Data Plan 1000 which looks more attractive but has a caveat. First, let’s look at the basic offering and what services come free with the plan (lifted from TechLokal)

The Php1,000 monthly service fee comes with the following: 500 text messages to all networks; 500 voice minutes to Smart and Talk ‘N Text numbers; and 1GB worth of data.

You can then get any of these handsets with an additional monthly fee for 24 months:

Samsung Galaxy Note (+ Php900)
Samsung Galaxy Nexus (+ Php900)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 (+ Php800)
HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio (+ Php900)
HTC Evo 3D (+ Php900)
Nokia N9 (+ Php900)
BlackBerry Curve 9360 (+ Php800)
BlackBerry Bold 9790 (+ Php900)
BlackBerry Bold 9900 (+ Php1,300)
Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray (+ Php500)

So while you’d pay Php2,000 a month for Unli Data 2000 and a free Galaxy Nexus, you also pay Php1,900 a month for the same under Unli Data Plan 1000. The Php100 difference can be attributed to the lower data cap and the voice calls within the Smart network and not on all networks.

In hindsight, there’s really not that much difference between Plan 1000 and Plan 2000. The good thing is, you now have more subsidized handsets to choose from.

Updated: Just corrected that the Plan 1000 is not Unli Data but Limited-Edition Data Plan.

    Hi guys!

    Question lang po sa mga nakapagavail.:

    Balak ko po kasing magapply either plan 1000 or 2000.
    Im wondering po kasi sa requirements, proof of financial capacity, call center agent lang po ako with only 16k monthly income. Papasa kaya to? May proof of billing naman ako kasi sakin nakapangalan yung electric bill. Thanks po sa response! :))

    • Need nila ng financial statement. i think the electricity bill is for the proof of address. You can use your bank accounts, passbook for financial statements. Need din na more than 6 months ata dapat un.

  2. Available pa kaya to kapag kukuha ng xperia ray?

A Statutory Demand doesn’t need to be issued from the Court however, if your Debtor takes no action within 21 days to become served, the Creditor will likely then petition the Court to generate the Debtor bankrupt.
