Will you switch providers for an iPhone?

Rate this post

Since the short announcement by Globe yesterday, it’s been the talk of the town already. Most of the tech journalists I talked to yesterday and today tell me this may not be a game-changer for Globe and I tend to agree with them.

So to satisfy my curiosity, I’m putting up a poll about this. Will you switch providers just for an iPhone?

On our poll section, there are 5 quick choices. Let me expound on them further:

1) No Way! – this could mean you’re not an iPhone fan or you’re a loyal subscriber of your current telco/cell provider.

2) Not Likely – you’re a little curious with the iPhone but you’re already satisfied with your provider.

3) Undecided – what’s an iPhone?

4) Maybe – depends on which Globe Plan it will come with. Maybe, I can use it as a secondary phone. Depends on the price too or if it’s already a 3G iPhone!

5) Sure! – I’m a fan of the iPhone and I’m just waiting to get my hands on one.

What do you guys think? Will the Globe iPhone Subscription Plan be a game-changer? Globe Telecom has about 21 million subscribers but only 710,000 are post-paid.

    If it fits my existing Globe postpaid subscription and/or Globe will revise their postpaid plan, I might. The existing postpaid plans does not exactly suit my needs…

    Not likely.

    I’m quite satisfied with my postpaid plans on other networks.

    And the price will probably be way above the roof.

    Nothing will make me switch back to Globe… Hhmm, maybe if the world turns upside down and Globes give me free call, text, and data usage.

    Anyway, about the iPhone… I have to say that it’s a pretty solid phone in terms of UI, internet experience, and responsiveness. Featurewise, it is still lacking but is improving everyday with free 3rd-party apps.

    I have owned and used Nokia, Windows Mobile, Sony-Ericsson high-end phones and I gotta say the iPhone is my best phone so far.

    The iPhone is not all hype.
