Globe iPhone 3G Post-Paid Plans Unveiled?


Got an email tipping us of the possible Globe Telecom Post-Paid Plans for the new iPhone 3G coming this September in the Philippines. These postpaid plans are not final and may change but more or less close to what you’ll expect when it comes out.

The starting price of $199 for the 8GB iPhone 3G model will come in a 2-year lock-in period with Globe Telecom. Here are the supposedly postpaid plans for new Globe subscribers:

G-Max 3500 iPhone 3G
Initial Fee: Php9,995
Monthly Fee: Php3,500
Free Text: 650
Free Calls: 750 mins.
Globe to Globe: Php3.50/minute
Globe to Non-Globe: Php4.50/minute
Excess SMS Rates: Php0.50/text

Globe Platinum 5000 iPhone 3G
Initial Fee: FREE
Monthly Fee: Php5,000

Optional: Additional Php2,000/month for Unlimited 3G Plans (Globe Visibility). Plans have 2-year lock-in period with Globe.

PrePaid Plans have not been finalized yet (due to Forex rates) but it will be in the range of Php20,000 to Php25,000.

Note that these plans have not been verified but based on the existing mobile subscriptions currently offered by Globe, they seem to fit and make sense. The discounted 3G Globe Visibility plans is supposed to be the sweet deal.

Apple may not be making profits out of the 50% cut on the iPhone 3G but they may be getting some revenue-sharing from post-paid plans from the telco. That’s the only logical reason why Apple was able to reduce the one-off price down to $199.

Update: In the US, people may get the new iPhone 3G for $199 + $39.99 * 24 months from AT&T for a total of $1,158.76 after 2 years.

Update 2: Unlocked iPhone 1.0 sells for Php29,500 in the black market.
