PLDT Call All extends Wireless Landline

Last Tuesday, PLDT also launched their PLDT Call All bundle — a wireless landline extension where subscribers can call anywhere in the Philippines. This promo is available to existing PLDT residential landline subscribers for an additional fixed monthly charge of Php250.

The bundle adds a PLDT Landline Plus (PLP) SIM card which can be used with any openline handset and serves as an extension of the fixed landline. What makes the PLDT Call All promo more expansive is that the mobile phone with the PLP SIM-card can be taken anywhere in the Philippines and still be able to call any landline number in its local area.

So if you have a fixed landline in Metro Manila (02), you can apply for an extension Call All SIM and carry it around in your mobile phone as a wireless landline. You can bring the mobile phone to Zamboanga or Iloilo and still be able to call any number in Metro Manila for free (and at the same time, be able to receive calls from landline with area code 02).

Globe launched their Duo service last month for an additional Php399/month but only allows for mobile calls as long as the phone is within the Metro Manila area. In essence, the PLDT Call All has much wider coverage.

However, Digitel complained to the NTC that the PLDT Call All promo violates the rules on interconnection of local exchange carriers (LECs). That means, if you make wireless landline calls outside of the local area your number is assigned, that is already an NDD and is subject to toll charges.

This could mean PLDT might be forced by the NTC to retract this service or restrict it to its local calling area (similar to Globe Duo). This rule is being enforced so that it will not compete with existing cellular service.

@LOOPING

Ito ang tanong ko sa’yo…

Bago ka ba bumili niyan eh inalam mo muna kung anong features at gamit niya? Clearly, you are misinformed.

Kaya po siya prepaid ay pwede mo lang siya magamit kung maglo-load ka. Kung pa-30-30 pesos lang ang load na gagawin mo, para ano pang gamit nung mga Globe/Smart/Sun/TNT/TM sims?

Ang prepaid landline wireless plus, para magamit mo, you need to load the corresponding amount at hindi yung tingi-tingi lang. At hindi po siya monthly. Kung gusto mo mag-load, then mag-load ka. Kung ayaw mo, then it’s fine. It will not allow you to do outgoing calls, but it will allow you to receive incoming calls at a specified amount of time, unless maglo-load ka ulit to continue the service.

Dapat bago mo binili yan, inalam mo muna lahat ng dapat malaman. Kasi ganun ang ginagawa ng isang responsible consumer.

Nakabili din ako ng PLDT landline prepaid plus at isang etong panloloko ng PLDT.. Hindi eto talaga prepaid isa etong postpai na kaylangan mong magload ng 300.00 every month to avail the service. Isang pandaraya.. isang malaking pandaray na hindi naman lang inilaborate noong bumili ako.. ang akala ko na kahit mag load lang ako ng 30 pesos pwede ko nang gamitin yung pala need to pay 300/month to activate.. Sana nag bayantel na lang ako na unlimited for 400.00.. At pangait pa ang hirap daw tawagan at hindi rin matxt.. pag ako naman tumawag 6 times kang mag redial bago maconnect.. PLDT manloloko tataga.. Ikalat ang pandaraya ng PLDT.. MANDARAYA!

last month, a customer sales agent of pldt called our landline and asked me if i would like to avail the Promo 250 pesos..

she told me that the plan consists of unlimited calls to all metro manila local landline and i cal still use it in provinces like bulacan, cebu etc for free call to any (02) Landline number area code. that’s nice for me but i dont trust the Agent.. so i refuse to have it..

and got myself in the nearest PLDT customer care center and asked for more informations about this promo. yun nga unlimited calls nga incorporated with our landline. 250 pesos lang and i inserted it to my PLDT Landline Prepaid Phone which i bought last 2007 pa..

i am using it since yesterday. i made calls from province (because i am here in bulacan, with my nephew’s house) to our house in caloocan! great and Splendid! no hassle! no more 10-minutes cut off! wow! no more meters. nothing more i Can say.

and btw, i hate Globe Duo.. why? i cant call PLDT.. i dont know what the fuck is wrong between PLDT and Globe they are prohibiting calls from each other’s wireless landline.. stratedgy siguro nila ito? last 2008 pa itong issue na ito at ang sagot sakin ng customer service ng globe is “sorry sir, ongoing parin po ang pag contact namin sa pldt regarding the issue. we apologize for inconvenience”

whoa! lang yang globe.. buwisit kayo! kaya much better pa ang Sun Cellular sa inyo e! Hari ng Unlimited! nasayang ung 599 ko, karamihan pa naman ng friends ko is PLDT.. >.<

Ingat kayo sa first bill ninyo.

Ang nangyari sa akin, nacharge ako ng pro-rated for the service, pero included yung initial landline. Dapat 250 pesos ang add-on for the call-all. That means ang monthly is only 850 pesos (bundled). Since yung initial ko ay 21 days lang (from activation ng call-all SIM until cut-off date), dapat babayaran ko is 21/30 ng 250 pesos. Pero ang chinarge sa akin ay 21/30 ng 850 pesos. (Hindi nila dapat singilin yung 600 pesos for the initial wired landline dahil bayad na yun at the start of the month. Yung MSF, you pay at the start. Ang dapat nila singilin is kung ilang days mo nagamit yung call-all SIM and add that to the 600 for the wired landline.)

In effect, mali yung pinro-rate nila na charge! Eh kung hindi ka mag-complain, eh di extra kita na nila yun. It appears to be a system error, so dapat alam na nila and gawan na ng automatic reversal ng charge. Pero it seems ang gusto nila is tatawag ka para ma-reverse yung maling charge.

Statement date ko na nagreflect ng first charge is November 20, 2009.

Ingat din kayo. Check ninyo yung first bill ninyo na nag-reflect ng call-all service.
