Surf Friendster WAP All Day for Php20

Friendster and Globe Telecom has partnered to provide all day surfing on their phones to the Friendster Mobile site for only Php20.

This unlimited WAP Data Plan, called Friendster Surf All Day, is available to all Globe prepaid subscribers. Not sure if postpaid subscribers are also included. The Php20 one-time charge will enable users to access m.friendster.com for 24 hours.

Friendster users must have their mobile phones configured to access cellular data using the myGlobe Connect APN to register and use the ‘Friendster Surf All Day’ data plan.

Users that do not have the correct myGlobe APN settings can text GO to 2951 or call Globe Customer Service via 730-1000 or toll free via 211.

Looks like a good deal to the millions of Filipinos still hooked up on Friendster. Instead of spending Php20 an hour in an internet cafe, you get 24 hours access on your mobile phone.

Hopefully, more sites will also be included in this type of service plan (like Twitter, Facebook, etc.).

Update: Turns out Smart Comm is also doing the same service plan to Friendster Mobile to its subscribers (as confirmed by Friendster PR). Only difference is that Smart is charging Php25/24hours.

    Yuga,

    The said Friendster All Day is also available to SMART subscribers, although the subscribers will be charged at 25 Pesos.

    Hopefully, Facebook will come up soon with similar offers.

  9. My Smart Bro connection is on a slope, first time on my whole year subscription though. Anyone knows about this ISP tripping thing nowadays? Upgrade? Downgrade? Dead end?

    Cheers

  14. lol although I tend to agree JohnLloy and Kelvin. I rarely check my Friendster and often go to Facebook. Twitter should also be included as well, although I believe ayaw ng Twitter na i-charge ang mga users nila kaya most likely di papayag ang Globe (or even Smart) LOL

    I pity the fools who would waste Php 20-25 on tired old technologies. WAP and Friendster. SMART think your a sucker.

    Why don’t they just Sell Unlimited Internet Data services on your cellphone. You pick and choose which part of the internet you wish to go. Send Tweets, post blog, websurf and facebook.

    Twitter and Facebook SMS for Sun Cellular:
    http://sunalertz.com/web/help

    Been using it for months now. There are occasional lags but most of the time it’s reliable. You can change some settings(such as blocking user but only in sunalertz, not in twitter itself) through SMS, but the other settings such as toggling twitter following list, you have to visit the website. Subscription price is affordable. Receive unlimited tweets during the subscribed period. The service has potential but needs improvements such as: putting an option to turn off updates and only receive @replies @mentions and DMs. Also, it won’t work not unless there’s a signal lol :)

  23. Question: Can we download games and applications in facebook while registered to surf all day? Pls. respond. Thanks!

  24. Unlimited facebook for P20/24hours is already available via the same promo. Same with plurk, wikipedia and ping.fm (who uses ping anyways??). I also have the same question as Irene. Can you play games and use the applications in FB? Because if not, then the thing is kind of useless unless you want to change your status every minute.
