    ilang years pag nag plan ka sa globe mga sers like 2799 plan if you pre-order now?

    • xx says:

      Usually two year contract yung bagong plan.

    • benj says:

      Hello..paano po pag di free yung headset…say kukuha ako ng S2 sa plan 299…24 months pa din po ba yung contract??..thanks po

    • xx says:

      AFAIK, all current postpaid plans availing of a free phone will have a two year contract. If SIM only (without the phone), there’s no lock-in period.

    • xx says:

      even if you have paid cash-out for the device at plan 299, the price that you actually paid has been subsidized (DAW) by globe. Pero if you can actually afford to pay the price at that range, might as well go to other markets (greenhills, ebay, sulit, tcp) dahil halos ganun din presyo (or sometimes even lesser).

    • xx says:

      Feedback lang for those who needed a few more details, though minsan nagkakaiba ng version sa iba ibang agents ng globe. Their sales called me up a while ago regarding my preorder last Saturday.

      -Sabi nga ni Mitch, Globe is offering the Samsung Galaxy S 2 FREE for MySuperSurf plan 2,499 for a limited time only (which is I guess within the preorder period) and thru the online preorder form only.

      -There’s no plan 2,799 (they said it was a typographical error).

      -Come launch date June 27, the SGS2 will no longer be offered free @ plan 2499, instead it will be free for plan 3,799. You can still get it at plan 2499 but you have to pay 6,836 for the unit (on top of MSF).

      Again, I may have gotten a few details wrong kasi minsan nagkakaiba ang feedback from them pero that’s what I have confirmed from the sales support agent that I have spoken with.

    • benj says:

      salamat po….tama mas mabuti bumili na lang prepaid kit…sana meron prepaid kit dito…andito kasi ako sa tuguegarao hehehe….

    • xx says:

      The preorder page from Globe has now been corrected:
      http://site.globe.com.ph/galaxy_s2?sid=TgHfPMuxpRcAACRxjy8AAACBe

      It now reads preorder now and you can get it Free with My SuperSurf plan 2499 (instead of the erroneous 2,799 which was previously posted). Kinda curious though that they haven’t edited the NFC capability of their SGS2 still in the list of features. Meron nga kaya? Anybody would like to confirm it with Samsung Mobile Philippines?

    • xx says:

      Wow… thought the reply I made before this one and the other replies I made down the line a few hours ago didn’t get posted… now they all suddenly appeared and I look like a spammer…

  2. Neil says:

    Haha. Globe! 4G ba talaga yan? Eh sa UK 3.5G lang yan eh. Sus!

    • xx says:

      Eh di sa UK ka tumira!

    • yy says:

      pre, parang mali ang banat at pamimilosopo mo ah! hahahe

      sinasabi nga nya sa 3.5G LANG sa uk e. bkt dun mo sya patitirahin! hahaha

    • xx says:

      My banat is completely valid you know, vitwater! Hahaha!

      First and foremost, meron bang telecom dito sa Pilipinas na nag-ooffer ng 6mbps na speed na kasama sa mobile plan nila? Wala! Sa tono ng post nya ay parang nagrereklamo sya na 3.5G lang yun sa UK. Not all telecoms on different countries are created equal. Sa AT&T sa US yung HSPA+ na pinangangalandakan nilang 4G rin ay nagta-top ng mga 6mbps din. It all boils down to what you want to think 4G is. Kung hanap nyo LTE Advanced mismo na totoong 4G, wala pa dito nyan. Merong set-up for LTE pero di rin naman totoong 4G ang LTE lang. Pag-inupdate nila sa LTE Advanced yung network nila, dun na kayo magsimulang magreklamo.

    • croke says:

      Tama! eh ano naman kung 3.5G lang ung sa UK? ibig sabihin nde na puede mag ka 4G sa pinas? at isa pa.. ung 6mbps ay 3G lang po nde 4G! dahil ang SGS2 (sa pinas ewan ko sa US) ay 3G lang :)

    • xx says:

      Actually, SGS2 is HSPA+ capable. Which means if your definition of 4G is like the ones in the US (AT&T and T-Mobile proclaims HSPA+ to be 4G), then it is 4G capable. Globe, I reckon, is just riding along with the US marketing of 4G. Which is ok I guess as long as the bandwidth keeps improving. Soon they’ll be offering LTE as well. And then hopefully LTE Advanced when the technology is ripe.

    • d says:

      actually, tama si xx. mali yata pagkakaintindi mo sa banat ni Neil.

    • yy says:

      ah ok. i stand corrected. mali ako ^_^

  3. xx says:

    And from the feature page of globe:
    Equipped with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, your phone can now also make contactless payments by connecting to compatible payment terminals.
    So it’s the NFC variety! Wow. Though we may not find any use of it now but atleast it’s there when the time comes.

    • aa1372 says:

      GT-i9100 ang version ng S2 ng globe, kaya walang NFC technology ang mga handsets natin…

      tinanong ko talaga ito kasi baka GT-i9103 eh… ayaw ko nito, Tegra 2 tapos SLCD lang at hindi Supper-AMOLED +

    • xx says:

      GT-i9100 din ang version na lumabas sa UK nung end of April or May right? Yun ang may Exynos 4210 and Super AMOLED Plus. It was said that initially the first UK release shipped without the NFC capability but they’d re-release the same device with the NFC capability in a later time. So baka meron na. I’m still hopeful unless yung source mo mismo nagsabi na walang NFC and Samsung confirms it.

    • aa1372 says:

      GT-i9101 ang may NFC technology.

      GT-i9100 ang dito sa Pinas.

    • aa1372 says:

      Globe ang source ko ng info.

      sabi nila GT-i9100 ang S2 nila… i9100 ay walang NFC capability..

      GT-i9101 ang version ng S2 na meron…

    • xx says:

      Hmmm bakit kaya nila isinama sa feature page nila ng Galaxy S2 kung di naman pala kasama yung feature? Well, malalaman na lang natin pagdating ng mga units sa mga kamay natin. I was hoping na meron since it coincides with the rumors na ngayong June lalabas ang NFC capable version in different countries (esp. UK), if wala then it’s ok pa rin naman. Hope they didn’t cripple the hotspot feature din.

    • aa1372 says:

      tinanong ko yan kahapon, June 18… 1st day ng pre-order nila…

      malay lang natin, mali lang ang binigay nilang info sa akin… :)

  4. sonomer says:

    Para lang ba to sa plan? o pwede ka rin mag order dito pero para sa prepaid kit price na 29,990?

  5. not-a-sucker says:

    Hello

    Anyone know if non-Globe units will have NFC too? (BTW, please don’t reply with “and you need NFC for what?? we don’t use NFC here…” im a developer and NEED NFC)

  6. wiiw says:

    better to wait nalang pala pag nirelease na ung 29,990P na SGS2 talo pag nag plan aq phone lang naman ang habol ko haha^^ 2799 x 24 months = 67k sakit haha

  7. Prangka says:

    Tama! Exclusively sa Globe on the 1st month pero on the 2nd month mabibili mo na yan sa Samsung Store, Viramall at CMKCellPhones at a cheaper price. Besides why buy it at a postpaid plan when you can buy it at a cheaper price on prepaid.

  8. power says:

    meron naman sigurong papatol dito. yung mayayaman na gustong mauna..
    pero PARA SA AKIN, hindi talaga yan praktikal. kaya ko naman maghintay ng ilang months.

    • xx says:

      Believe it or not, may mga taong nagbabayad ng bill nila ng 2,500 at mahigit pa. Depende kasi yan sa usage mo. Hindi talaga praktikal pag di mo magagamit ang minutes at free texts plus freebies na kasama sa plan na yun dahil di ka heavy user ng voice and data. Pero kung umaabot din naman ang bill mo ng ganun kataas, kukuha ka ng plan na ito dahil libre pa at the same time ang phone at namamaximize mo yung kasamang libre sa plan na yun. That’s the difference siguro ng majority ng mga postpaid subs ng globe vs. postpaid subs ng smart or sun. Mas marami sigurong heavy postpaid users (thus higher plans) ang globe kesa sa iba kaya they can afford to give these units for free at higher plans.

    • power says:

      sorry naman. Overpriced “prepaid” kits kase ang nasa isip ko kanina kaya ko na-post yan.. tama ka, meron talagang malalakas ang usage. may plan 8000 nga ang smart eh.
      kung mataas naman ang usage mo might as well kunin mo na yung plan. may libre ka pa!

    • xx says:

      Sabi mo kasi sa panimula mo:
      “meron naman sigurong papatol dito. yung mayayaman na gustong mauna”
      kaya ganyan po sinagot ko kasi hindi po lahat ay dahil sa gustong mauna o mayayaman. may mga nagkakataon lang din siguro na wala na sila sa contract o di kaya nagbabalak ng postpaid dahil pareho lang gastos nila from prepaid or from previous plans. E nagkataong eto pang top of the line phone ang inooffer ng globe. They have the iPhone and Galaxy S2 sa line-up nila.

  9. Mememe says:

    Wish ko lang malaki ang price drop ng sgs1 pag release na sgs2..

  10. Mitch says:

    Its available @ plan 299 for a cash out price of 29770

    • xx says:

      hmmm… so it may surpass the 30k mark for prepaid after all? How about for my supersurf plan 1799 and 2499 kaya?

    • Mitch says:

      actually if you pre-oreder now until the 24th is free under plan 2799, pro when i asked the customer service, its free @ plan 2499.

      its actually more expensive than iphone4 for the cash out price at plan 299…huhuhu

    • xx says:

      It would probably be more expensive because of the specs alone tsaka 1 year old na ang iPhone 4. Tapos kung free sya at plan 2499 bakit pa nagka-plan 2799? hehehe

  11. mike says:

    why get this? GALAXY S IS SELLING FOR 16K! GO GET GALAXY S AS IT IS BETTER VALUE

  12. aa1372 says:

    nag-apply na ako kanina, plan my super surf 999, 21,534 ang cash-out.

    mabilis lang ang process… kasi extension plan na lang ang kukunin ko… na-send ko na yung form mga 1 pm, tinawagan na ako ng support team ng globe kaninang 8:30…

    di ko kinagat ang plan 2799 kahit free pa… sayang lang kasi di ko naman mako-consume ang 2799 na unlimited mobile internet + 1800 worth of calls and texts

    • ron says:

      Magkano kaya yung cashout sa 1799 my supersurf plan nila? Tnx

    • aa1372 says:

      15,677 cash-out +1799 :)

    • ron says:

      thanks. btw, yung preorder ba eh dedicated sa magsasubscribe sa plan 2499? kasi nung tumawag ako sa 211 eh yung preorder daw eh para dun sa mga magsasubscribe sa 2499….

    • aa1372 says:

      hindi naman, after mong ma-send ang pro-order form, may tatawag sa iyo… tinanong nila ako kung yung 2799 ang kukunin ko pero sabi ko plan 999 lang ako, 21,534 pesos + 999 pesos :)

    • ron says:

      plan ko din kasi kumuha ng plan 999, hehe naeexcite ako kumuha sana naman tumawag na sila hehe sana mali yung nakausap ko sa csr na for plan 2499 lang yung preorder kasi parang hindi practical kung hindi naman ako heavy user ng call and text, more on internet kasi ako,..

    • aa1372 says:

      try mo magweb-chat sa kanila… may link sa website ng globe… mas nagkakaintindihan kami sa chat…

      pag sa hotline ka nila nagtanong… naku ang gulo kausap

      payo ko lang, mag-apply kayo ONLINE wag sa 730-1000

    • MV says:

      Nakakalito nga yung mga csr ng globe. I asked about “plan 2799” and it’s not in their system. The cash-out for plan 2499 daw is P6,839 which contradicts the other comment saying it’s free for 2499.

    • xx says:

      Ganyan din inoffer ng tumawag sa akin sa umpisa pero then kinonfirm ko via chat (sa website ng globe) kung ano ba talaga yang nakalagay sa preorder now and get it at 2799 for a limited time only, nagreply nga sila na 2,499 daw dapat yun na promo for preordering online only. So I told the sales agent what the chat support told me and I asserted na nag-preorder ako online therefore I should be entitled to the promo tapos vinerify nya, after a few minutes, tama nga daw na free for 2499. Kaya yun. I think medyo magulo pa ang information being handed to the sales team. What they have are regular pricelists pagkatapos ng preorder promo for the phone. Truth of the matter is, I won’t bite pag 3799 yung plan kasi I know my consumption (it averages 3,300 per month). Medyo sobra na talaga ang 3799 para sa akin. And 2,499 would be just right for me as my second plan, as I’m planning to downgrade my old plan for superduo calls only on a dumb phone para di madrain battery ng sgs2 ko pag maraming tawag (at the same time na-retain ko pa old numbers ko) so lalabas around 3,300 pa rin all in all per month.

    • xx says:

      In-update na po ng Globe webpage nila. If you clicked the “preorder now” button from the home page, it will take you to the feature page of SGS2 (just before the preorder form page) where it now states it’s free @2499 at a limited time, as compared to the previous 2,799 plan which was erroneously displayed before.

      Pero di pa rin nila tinanggal yung NFC capability na feature ng phone. Meron nga ba kaya itong model na to?

  13. chris says:

    is this available for current subscribers who want to re-new their 2 year contract with globe?

    don’t see it in their website though..

    • yogz says:

      talked to a csr via webchat

      from what i understood, you cant preorder unless youre getting a NEW line. tapos bakbakan nalang sa 27 for a unit.
      I got a bit confused with one of the responses. It goes, it doesnt necessarily mean that when you renew you can get the s2, then later she goes, that my lockup is free and i can avail the phone. So, uh, yeah… So can I get it or cant I? lol.

    • chris says:

      Thanks for the reply!

      YES! exactly, globe CSRs have been very non-helpful in helping retain their current subscribers. i’ve been very disappointed with globe, and their customer retention plan aka loyalty rewards. i though they would be more aggressive with their reward offers since smart gobbled up sun cellular. am actually thinking of convincing my dad to move all our lines to smart.. since all of us are out of our 2-year lock in with globe, and we’ve been with globe for around 8 years now..

    • yogz says:

      yeah i find it dumb that the priority for the “reward” is more towards those who MAY avail of a new line rather than those who have already been giving them money and are interested in locking themselves in giving them more money! ridiculous!

    • xx says:

      Yeah. Sa US, ikaw pa oofferan ng mga high end phones before your contract ends para lang mag-stay ka sa network nila. Pwede ka rin pumili ng latest sa line-up ng phones nila as long as swak sa plan mo or mag-upgrade ka. It’s totally a different scenario here. My guess is that most of the subscribers whose contract has expired didn’t want to be inconvenienced by changing numbers pag lumipat sila ng network kaya tanggap na lang sila ng tanggap ng mga loyalty offers kahit di gaanong maganda yung offer before. Kaya medyo malakas ang loob ng network. They reserve the “hot phones” for new plans. Limitado din siguro ang supply nila for the new phones kaya they’d prioritize new lines. Pero siguro kung marami ang mag-terminate ng account after contract and transfer to another network dahil di maganda ang offer baka mag-iba ihip ng hangin. I don’t see the point also why they won’t offer these new phones for an upgrade or a new contract for their old subscribers kung maganda naman ang record ng subscriber. Atleast tested and proven na na nakakabayad yung lumang subscriber. Ako naman, I’m willing to let go of my number kung wala akong mahanap na workaround to retain my current mobile spending. Pwede na rin sa kin yung plan 3000 ng smart plus HTC Sensation kung di ito natuloy. Madali na rin naman magkalat ng bagong number thru fb.

  14. Zo says:

    Any news if this is the i1903 or the i1900 model?

  15. razorous says:

    Yehey! Malapit na :D

  16. Mer says:

    Got mine from HK this June 17, 2011..

    It cost about 5000 HKD, about 28.1k php(5.6 hkd to php)

    Been through hell getting this because they have VERY LIMITED SUPPLY! They say the have a stock in their warehouse but they will get it as soon as you pay them. A bit dangerous right? But lucky I found a shop in Mongkok Computer Center in Mongkok that has a stock already in their store. Again, they won’t let you open it (Samsung Galaxy S2 sealed box) until you pay them.

    If you want to buy this here in ph, get it fast!! It has VERY, i repeat, VERY LIMITED SUPPLY! =)

    God Bless all!

  17. Fboi says:

    Blah.. Anung apps naman available jan.. Ganda nga specs BORING NAMAN NG APPS.. iphone4 ftw! Di nmn madistinguish kung samsung hawak mo “payabang wise”.. Same old plastiky handset, unknown.

    • Steve Jobs says:

      Tama. AAnhin mo high end na mga feature eh di mo naman magagamit kasi nga limited lang ang mga Apps. Yes, hindi rin naman malalaman na Samsung Galaxy S 2 hawak mo unless malagay ka ng placard sa noo mo na “I’m using Samsung Galasy S 2”. Kasi nga its plasticky. Wala kasing mga identity ganyang mga Phone. Unlike iPhone, malayo palang, alam mo na iPhone.

      One more thing… nag stop yata production nyan kasi under Restraining order ng Apple. Ginaya kasi ang iPhone looks and feel.

  18. Prangka says:

    Ganyan na ganyan ang promo ng Globe nung 1st time lumabas ung Apple Iphone 4. Pre order din pero pag labas ng unit sa releasing date, available narin siya sa ibang Apple Store, PowerMac Store, Viramall at CMK on the same date. Mas mura pa kumpara bibili ka sa Globe na postpaid/prepaid.
    Tama ang iba ang postpaid w/free handset ay nababagay lng para sa malakas kumunsumo ng load at ung mga mayayaman. Its not worth it for the middle to lower class people. Ang prepaid at openline ay para talaga sa MASA.

  19. wreek888 says:

    The problem kasi with samsung eh kulang kulang ang accesories, like walang hdmi cable na kasama kailangan pa bumili na hindi naman available sa market like yun av connector sa galaxy tab, hdmi cable ng s2 . Buti pa lg optimus2x complete ang accesorries me free pa na 8 gb memory card.

  20. driftracer85 says:

    I’m sure this would work better with SMART LTE…

    • xx says:

      SGS2 is not LTE capable, only HSPA+ capable (up to 21mbps). (Again) It is labeled as a 4G phone because of the marketing of HSPA+ as 4G in the US and other countries.

      List of LTE-capable phones here:
      http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/finder_results.php?m=s&w=s&f30r=r&f30_16=y

      All of which are still not marketed here via official channels dahil di pa naman available commercially ang LTE on any network (YET!). Kung iisipin, LTE technology on phones has not yet fully matured (such that it consumes too much space on the device and consumes battery fast when used).

      I’m sure the SGS2 would also work well with the HSPA+ network of Smart when they’ll launch plans of greater speeds commercially using the said technology. That’s why this phone is pitted against HTC Sensation because both can handle HSPA+, though HTC Sensation can only handle HSPA+ speeds of up to 14.4mbps.

      HSPA+ technology currently is capable of speeds of up to 84mbps and future revisions can even yield 168mbps or even 672mbps in its advancement. So you can’t really belittle HSPA+ when comparing to real 4G standards.

      With all these “4G” talk, I’m really beginning to wonder if the networks will really give us mind-blowing speeds. First and foremost, kelangan ba talaga natin ng ganun kabilis na speed? I think these technologies were developed to enhance the capacity of the network but with regards to the speed, it would somehow plateau on a certain level.

      I talk too much

    meron b ang samsung na parang private server na lahat ng samsung galaxy user can chat anywhere? Like enterprise server. Etc..

    • Steve Jobs says:

      You mean like the

      Wala yata ganyan si Samsung.

    • xx says:

      Android doesn’t have that feature yet, though they have GTalk and other messengers. Google is said to be developing something that would compete with iMessage and BBM.

      SGS2 has additional enterprise features (Microsoft Exchange Active Sync, VPN, Cisco WebEx, MDM and on device encryption).

    • bkt says:

      matanong lang, anong advantage ng BBM at imessage sa fbchat mobile/skype mobile/nimbuz/ym mobile?

      Kase sa BBM puros bb lang ang kausap, may dagdag subscription pa. Ganun din sa iMessage.

      Hindi ko ma-gets bakit kelangan pa ng ganung chat-chat services…

    There’s really just a lot of idiot suckers in the Philippines. In the first place, you really won’t be able to spend 3000 pesos of load. Mobile internet is only 10 pesos per hour. There’s not much difference if you buy a 15k phone with a 30k peso one. THIS IS ALL MARKETING HYPE AND WHAT THE POSTERS ABOVE JUST DEFINES WHAT ‘SUCKERS’ MEAN.

    • benj says:

      oh come on….there no difference between a 15k phone to a 30k one!!!! its like saying that there is no diffence between a honda and a ferrari… ;)

    • mike says:

      there is, but it is often negligible. What’s 2 second difference when loading a page? I use my 6000 peso android dual sim phone just about anywhere, inside jeepneys, divisoria market, baclaran, crowded streets, and i does not attract attention. Try using this and someone will probably shoot you dead and grab your phone. 2 second difference for a your life.

    • Techie_girl says:

      To put things in perspective, I know of a cheaper Android phone, less than 6k but I still buy the latest handsets. It’s not because I’m a sucker but it’s because phones interest me and I CRAVE technology. It’s about fueling your knowledge/interests. When I was in high school, my family didn’t have internet or access to the latest technology. We had a homework that had something to do with technology and naturally, I didn’t get it right, then I discovered the Internet, computers, gadgets, and Moore’s Law. I’m hooked, its not enough that I just read these things, I have to experience them. So every 6 months or so I upgrade my gadgets and sell the old ones. If I’m lucky, I only pay around 1,000 depreciation value for my stuff.

      I don’t know if this is accurate analogy but if you have the money would you rather put your child in Ateneo or save your money and put them in public school? Of course its about fueling your child’s future/knowledge. Same thing, I’m fueling my interests/ knowledge.

  23. mike says:

    and to add to my post. I have a 6000 pesos dual sim android phone. I only use 10 peso per hour internet. I’m not pressured to surf the net. Besides I prefer surfing the net on a large screen. And I have a mobile wimax internet which is fast yet I only spend 900 pesos a month. I can’t seem to justify or see the need for this phone/plan .

    IDIOT SUCKERS are those who get this plan and get this phone at ridiculous price. Not because I don’t have the money but because i just find it funny. It just proves FILIPINOS are really stupid when it comes to money matters.

    • Mitch says:

      pls have reservations when saying your comment here. I think you are going overboard. It doesn’t mean that if people get this phone at a phone plan they are stupid. We respect that you are comfortable using your 6000 pesos dual sim phone and that you prefer to surf the net on a large screen so please respect us for choosing this phone and getting it from globe. This is is a matter of individual preferences.

  24. mike says:

    for the above post from Mitch and ztx, I can easily buy this phone in cold cash. But what the heck will I buy this, I do not see it as too different or too improved from my current setup. Buying this phone at a ridiculous price just means I tolerate overpricing. I like buying affordable devices as I believe this would help a lot more people and send the message to manufacturers that they have to produce useful affordable phones for everyone. Technology should not just be limited to a few insecure, ego-boosting idiots. It is all about how you use the device to make yourself productive.

    • LilBoyBlue says:

      You just said it. It’s all about how you use the device. Haven’t you stopped and thought that people who are availing of the plan really use the free internet? Quit generalizing that everyone who avails of the plan are bandwagon junkies. Sure you have your own opinion but don’t go raining on anyone else’s parade if you have any beef with the product or telco.

      You say it’s overpriced? Have you thought of the production cost of this phone and the cost of your oh so powerful 6k droid phone? It’s just like any other market in the world. Boy you must have a sad life. And you just made mine sadder because I just reacted to your post.

    • Mitch says:

      We are not questioning your capacity to buy this phone so please dont publish it to the world that you can buy this phone with cold cash. Its your personal perspective that this device is overpriced and could not improve your current setup, so be it!! People have own personalities and say on what they want to buy or not. They are not your replicas. And besides you said it yourself and I will quote “It is all about how you use the device to make yourself productive”, so we find this device as useful and we have weighed the pros and cons of this device and also taking into consideration the price to buy it. RESPECT!!

    • benj says:

      it geeks who buy this phone..ang i think your not one of them……kaya po mahal ang phone its because of the specs and features,,,and i believe na ma maximize yung features ng phone if u avail the plan..hehehe opinion lang..

      How incredibly self-centered and self-entitled. And you call out others on thier ego-boosters and insecurities?

      “DONT LIKE WHAT I DONT LIKE!”

    • Chris says:

      How arrogant and disrespectful!

      Have you come to think that even your 6000 Android phone is also OVERPRICED?

    • rporter says:

      This is like saying “Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Jaguar, Aston Martin, Chrysler, Daimler, General Motors, Porsche, and others should manufacture cars like Toyota do.”

      If you can’t afford it then don’t buy it.

  25. charles says:

    boo they are not offering this one to existing subcribers even if the line will be upgraded to the 2499 plan.. boo globe!

  26. mike says:

    besides 2 year plan? In 6 months there will be a new technology, quad core ice cream sandwich tablet phones, with same network support and faster processor. In a year, 3G phones are obsolete. There’s no use buying the latest and greatest. And there’s no use getting tied up with one network committed to pay this much amount every month.

    • ztx says:

      pwe, manahimik ka na nga lang!

      6 months from now, for sure pag labas ng quad core ice cream sandwich tablet phones na sinasabi mo, sasabihan mo na naman na overpriced ang mga yan… at dapat ang mga dual-core, GB smartphones ang bilhin kasi under 20k na lang ang price…

      yup, absolete na ang 3G phones next year… kaya FREE na lang yang 6K android phone mo, IDIOT SUCKER MIKE! LOL

    • ztx says:

      obsolete*

    • Chris says:

      Mike, that’s the reality and how fast paced technology development is. Example, iPhone has 1 year tech cycle so every year you can expect another new iPhone model. Holding on because 6months or a year from now there will be a new technology that would replace the current technology is pointless like I’ll just buy next year because the technology is cooler but when that time comes you say again next year nalang kasi mas cooler ulit. It’s about the timing dude … you really don’t need a quad-core cellphone 6 months from now which by the way would again be subject to your unkind criticism of OVERLY PRICED TECHNOLOGY :) …

    hello, sana di na pinatulan ang post na to, i think past 4 SGS2 articles puro flame lang ang ginagawa nito

    • dumbul says:

      in reference to the post below…

      IDIOT SUCKERS are those who get this plan and get this phone at ridiculous price. Not because I don’t have the money but because i just find it funny. It just proves FILIPINOS are really stupid when it comes to money matters.

  28. Zo says:

    awwww. globe’s just offering the i9100 model… making me think twice already…

    • xx says:

      Confirmed na ba na i9100 yung model na inooffer nila? Kasi if tama ang pagkakaintindi ko sa sinabi ng sales agent sa kin, sa weekend pa naman daw dadating yung stocks. Pero nevertheless, that model is still very much capable. Isa pang questionable sa kin ay kung meron nga bang commercial na irerelease na i9103? Kasi kahit sa India, i9100 pa rin naman (Super Amoled+ and Exynos pa rin instead of the supposed SLCD and Tegra). I’ve read a statement of NVIDIA before na mali yung sinasabing nagconfirm sila na may lalabas na ganun model (though di rin naman nila dinedeny). Well, I think I’d still enjoy this model whether there’s another model coming out or not.

  29. bOkz says:

    mga sirs question, say na approved yung application mo, kelan mo makukuha yung unit?

    please wala sanang barubal na sagot sa matinong tanong.

    thanks

    • xx says:

      Ang sabi sa kin ng sales agent between june 25 to 27 dadating yung mga units.

    • Zo says:

      Yep, a rep told me pre-ordered units are available on 25-27, but knowing Globe, it’d all come down again to number of allocated units per Globe Center, so i suggest being really early on those dates to pick up your unit.

    • aa1372 says:

      diba pag nag-pre order online, idi-deliver ang handset sa address na binigay mo sa kanila?

    • xx says:

      Yup. Yan din sinabi sa kin tapos COD kung ano man plan kinuha mo.

    • aa1372 says:

      tinawagan ka na kung kailan idi-deliver ang handset sayo?

    • xx says:

      Di pa po. Kayo po?

    • aa1372 says:

      hindi pa. pero sabi kasi today daw, pinakamatagal na ang bukas… June 18 pa ako nag-apply

    • xx says:

      Pareho tayo. I preordered June 18 din. Pero in the afternoon na. Tapos late ko na na-check email ko that day kaya kinagabihan ko pa nasubmit dox ko. Kaya late na rin ako natawagan. Sabi sa kin either ngayon or tomorrow ko daw malalaman.

    • aa1372 says:

      natawagan ka na ulit?

    • xx says:

      Di pa nga rin e. Ikaw? Hehehe. Update man dyan kung sino man ang confirmed yung preordered nila. Hehehe.

    • aa1372 says:

      hindi.

      ibebenta na ito sa GBCs sa Monday… wala pa rin tayong delivery date? Buti pang pumila na lang ako sa Monday? kakaasar lang, sasabi-sabi sila ng date kung kelan sila tatawag tapos hindi naman pala?

    • xx says:

      Suggestion ko? Di ba magbabayad ka rin naman ng 21.5k? Kung di ka naman nagmamadali at pwede pa i-stretch budget mo, mag-preorder ka na lang sa Samsung Philippines site sa June 24. Sabi dito (tipped by Maki below): http://www.pinoytechblog.com/archives/samsung-galaxy-sii-pre-order-promo/
      you can avail of the OPENLINE SGS2 at 26,990PhP PLUS may mga kasama pang accessories for free. Kaso lang sa July 2 pa lalabas. I don’t know what’s taking globe so long to confirm our preorders. Pero pag di ito magmaterialize baka ipa-terminate ko na lang pati old account ko sa kanila and avail of the HTCS sa kabila. I don’t know why pero humihina signal ng globe sa bahay namin lately e. Pero smart and sun full signal kahit sa loob looban pa.

    • xx says:

      Or I can go Sun with their cheaper rates and unlimited offerings and save up for the next iPhone this September or a nokia windows phone on the last quarter of this year.

      So many options…

    • ron says:

      ako din nung 18 pa nagapply, sabi nung tumawag sakin, eh wait ko lang daw yung call. pero sana naman tumawag na hehe

    • xx says:

      @aa1372 and ron
      may tumawag na ba sa inyo?

    • ron says:

      hindi pa rin tumatawag eh. sabi nung kausap ko eh wala pa daw inaapprove. sana naman makasama ako sa preorder hehe

    • xx says:

      Still hoping? Hehehe. Based on some feedback, medyo mabagal daw talaga ang Globe sa mga online applications. Baka abutin pa tayo neto ng launch ng Samsung Mobile Philippines. Sadly, sold-out na yung preorder ng Samsung. Mabilis at mas organisado yung preorder ng Samsung. Napaka-anticlimactic naman itong kabagalan ng confirmation ng Globe.

    • aa1372 says:

      actually, kino-consider ko na nga rin yang offer ng Samsung mismo, binabantayan ko na rin yung page ng S2 sa website nila, haha!

      pero kaunting pasensya pa, siguro kung hanggang saturday wala pa ring feedback, daming paraan para makakuha ng S2… kailangan ko rin kasi ng data plan, sinabay ko na lang yang S2.

      kakakuha ko lang kasi ng Acer Liquid E na handset sa Smart kaya di ako pwede sa HTC Sense nila… tsaka mas OK para sa akin ang S2 kaysa sa HTC Sensation

    • xx says:

      Yeah, S2 din gusto ko. Unlocked yung bootloader ng Samsung kaya you can do almost anything to it (network unlock? hehehe). Yung sensation, ni-lock ang bootloader ng HTC e. Pero kung malabo sa globe then I seek the next best deal whose plan is just about right for my usual mobile consumption. Sayang din naman kasi kung bibili ako ng phone tapos ganun pa rin yung binabayaran ko monthly sa network (na dapat sana ay may free phone).

    • xx says:

      By the way, if you view the webpage of Samsung Galaxy S2’s features on Globe’s site now (http://site.globe.com.ph/galaxy_s2?sid=TgH7NMuxpRcAAGgtKVAAAAFWe): They’ve corrected the erroneous plan 2799. It’s now 2499. Hehehe. Curiously, di nila binago yung feature na may NFC yung phone. Hmmmm. (Keep crossing fingers.)

    • aa1372 says:

      may delivery date ka na?

    • xx says:

      La pa rin. No calls. No feedback. No anything. =(

      Kaw?

    • xx says:

      Wow! Pretty good deal! A nice alternative for people who doesn’t want to be locked down to Globe! Yan na rin ang sagot sa mga gustong magprepaid. Wish Globe would also include those accessories sa magsa-subscribe sa kanila. Hehe. I’m also interested with the official desktop dock, leather case and BT Headset. Magiging available din kaya ang mga yan dito?

  30. LilBoyBlue says:

    S2 selling for 30k in ghills. Hoping it drops once the July 2 release date comes :P

  31. aa1372 says:

    pre-ordered June 18 pa, hanggang ngayon wala pa rin feedback, Globe talaga, paasa…

    • KernelSender says:

      Me too. I’m completely disappointed by their lack of updates. Preordered last Sun, submitted my reqs & confirmed my preorder last Mon. Not a word from them eversince. My contract from them has already expired and if they don’t want me to stay as a subscriber then so be it. I’m switching to Smart tomorrow.

    • xx says:

      Hahaha! Ako din, wala pang tumatawag sa preorder ko noong June 18. Nakakawalang gana. Sa July pa naman mag-eexpire contract ko pero kung ganito yung Globe, baka maglipat na rin ako network.

  32. Mike says:

    I’ve talked to some merchants and they are selling the Samsung Galaxy S2 for P28,900 (openline) when it comes out.

  33. aa1372 says:

    sa Monday available na ang Samsung Galaxy S2 sa mga Globe Business Centers sa Metro Manila…

    ano pang silbi ng “Pre-Order” nila sa Globe Website? kung hanggang ngayon wala pa rin feedback ang mga nag-register para dito online?

    • xx says:

      Actually, available na daw ito bukas sa selected Globe Business Centers. Ang problema ay kung gusto mong mag-avail ng phone for free dahil di na sya free @2499 na plan pag sa business center mo kukunin. Free na sya at 3799. If Globe is favoring this price scheme di sana di na sila nagpapreorder preorder na promo pa. Ang nakakainis pa ay yung wala masasagot sa yo na feedback ang mga customer support dahil wala daw update. 5 days na, wala pang update? I’m a little pissed off with Globe right now.

    • aa1372 says:

      buti pa ang pre-order ng Samsung… Ang bilis! galing!

    • aa1372 says:

      buti pa ang pre-order ng Samsung… ang bilis.

  34. ram32185 says:

    any one got their globe samsung glaxy s2 yet? still waiting for mine..

    • xx says:

      la pa rin sa kin… di pa sila tumatawag to confirm my preorder… may tumawag na ba sa yo kung kelan ipapadala yung unit??

    • aa1372 says:

      ako rin wala pa! lokohan na itong “pre-order” na ito!

    • ram32185 says:

      huling message nareceive k ng 22 na kontakin dw nila ko within two working days kinonfirm lng nila ntngap n nila mga requirements ko.pgkptos nun wala pa ulit..

    • Chris says:

      Same here… sabi nila they will contact within two working days. Approved or not they should contact us within that period given. Mahina talaga CS na Globe.

    • aa1372 says:

      ako June 18 pa nag-apply… tinawagan ako ng June 18 din, wait daw ng 2 working days…

      for extension/additional line na lang ako ha… pahirapan pa!

  35. xx says:

    Isn’t it strange how Globe’s customer service (both sales and account support whether via 211, facebook, twitter, e-mail or chat) are totally clueless of any updates regarding preorders? And how the online sales support team are unresponsive with regards to requests for any updates?

    Globe doesn’t understand such a simple concept as “Preorder”.

    • Chris says:

      Available na everywhere this coming Monday ang SGS2. I was so excited about preorder and thought I could own an SGS2 before its release. Its really a big letdown.

    • aa1372 says:

      supervisor na kausap ko kanina… pero wala pa rin silbi… ifa-follow-up lang ang kayang gawin

      pre-order pa rin ba ang tawag sa application ko? natatawa na lang ako

    • xx says:

      I have yet to see or hear somebody who preordered na magsasabi na na confirm na ng Globe ang preorder nya at may date na na dadating yung unit nya.

      Sa umpisa pa lang ng preorder nila mali mali na yung information na kinakalat nila kaya parang ayaw ko ng umasa.

  36. oc says:

    sabi sakin nung CSR knina tatawagan daw ako at marereceive ko ung unit w/n 5-7 business days, tinanong ko pa sa knea kung may mga naapprove na ba sa mga nag pre order sabi nea sakin madami na, so wait lng daw ako.. haizz.. pano nga naman naging pre order to kung gnun?

    • xx says:

      Kelan ka nag-apply online? Ika-7th day na since tinawagan ako pero hanggang ngayon wala pang tumawag ulit. sa tuesday yung ika-7th business day kung ganun pero kakaiba naman itong preorder process nila. It doesn’t primarily serve the purpose of preordering. Hope you guys can update us kung natawagan na kayo to confirm na dadating na unit nyo on a specified date as I will update you guys din kung may tumawag na sa kin.

    • oc says:

      nung thursday lng ako nagapply sir pero pahirapan pa nga sa requirements un he, tinanong ko pa nga yang mga nag preorder na matagal na e sabi naman sakin nung csr madami na daw naapprove, tama ka jan sir, pano pa naging pre order un kung gnun din pala, haha. anyway ung HTCS ba ng smart maganda? blita ko may death grip issue daw e. update tayo d2 sir for the preorder thanx!

  37. xx says:

    I also preordered for HTC Sensation on Smart:

    http://smart.com.ph/htc1/

    Atleast the release date is clear and you can choose where to pick up the unit (once approved). Unlike Globe na parang iniwan ka sa ere o sa dilim, at di mo alam kung makakakuha ka nga ng unit o hindi. Matatapos na rin contract ko sa Globe kaya I’m considering switching sa inis ko sa Globe. Would very much want the SGS2 sana kaso I don’t wanna buy it without a data plan na mamamaximize ko rin lang naman for two years, dun na lang ako sa kabila kung sakasakali.

  38. ram32185 says:

    grabe globe..launch na sa store bukas pero ung ng order ahead of launch till now wla pa tau feedback and di man lang mg inform kng naapprove or not. been to trinoma last night glove business center la rin sila idea na me ilalaucn na bago galaxy s2?parang wala sila proper channel of communication…pg nalaunch na sya I might go with the unlocked galaxy and pay it for cash.

  39. Chris says:

    Yipeee… I was just informed right now that my application was approved. Sadly, wala pa daw stocks sa SGS2 today. Confirm lang daw nila tomorrow regarding the delivery date of my unit kung meron na stocks. Anti-climactic talaga.

    • xx says:

      I have received a text message as well. BUT…

      Ain’t it funny how the ones who preordered were the ones who got ran out of stocks? Tapos yung mga nag-wo-walk-in lang sa globe business centers sila pa nakakakuha ng stock? Mas malaki ba kikitain ng Globe kaya yung mga nag-avail ng preorder promo yun ang isasakripisyo nila at sabihing walang stock?

    • ram32185 says:

      same here..got messgae today..and same din approved applciation ko pero wla pa daw stocks they call once availble para ideliver..another waiting time.

  40. raptu3rd says:

    meron na ba tlga cla nabigyan ng unit bka delaying tactics lng to. ngemail sa akin ung isang taga [email protected] sbi nya last week pa daw available ung units.
    eto b ung msg sau?
    G0odm0rning! This is to inf0rm y0u that y0ur apps f0r p0stpaid plan (samsung galaxy s 2) has bee appr0ved, unf0rtunately we d0nt have st0ck yet f0r the said handset, we will call t0mm0rr0w regarding the delivery once handset be available. Thanky0u
    hahaha jejejejejemon ung ng txt

    • xx says:

      LOL! Jejemon nga rin sa kin nagtext kaya nagdududa din ako baka nanloloko lang ito.

      Last Saturday daw available na ito sa mga selected/key Globe Business Centers. Ang nakakainis nagpreorder tayo tapos tayo pa ang walang reservation sa mga units.

      Talk about “valued” subscribers huh?

    • Chris says:

      Na-Jeje ata tayo mga pre. Ganun din text sa akin. Kakainis naman.

  41. Chris says:

    Baka hindi talaga nila gusto ibigay @ 2499 free.

    • oc says:

      wow talaga? ang galing naman nakakaexcite yan mga tol. pero tama kayu, bakit pa tinawag na preorder un kung may nauna na sa inyo na makakuha ng mga units. wew grabe sinisira ng globe ang pangalan nila.

  42. dz says:

    iniisip lang yata natin na pag pre-order, we get it before anyone else. sabagay hindi naman nila sinabi na ganun. baka nga yung “pre-order” is for the promo lang, ibig sabihin we’ll get it free at 2499. marketing strategy nga lang talaga yung “pre-order”.

    • xx says:

      The real purpose of a PREORDER is to secure an order for an item para by the time it becomes available ikaw ang priority. Ang problema sa globe, nagpreorder ka tapos sasabihin sa yo walang stock pero nagbebenta sila sa mga stores nila. Ano yun?

    • aa1372 says:

      wala na akong gana pang ifollow-up ang pre-order ko! umiinit na kasi ang ulo ko… haha

      kung aabutin pa ng 2nd week of July, wala pa rin maideliver na S2 sa akin ang Globe…

      mukhang bibilhin ko na lang ito siguro last week of July sa Samsung store na mismo… unlocked pa ang phone na makukuha ko… pero apply pa rin ako ng data plan sa globe pero line lang… ayoko na ng may kasamang phone… ayoko ng magkaroon ng contract sa Globe…

    • raptur3d says:

      ganyan din balak ko. pag wla pa din ung fon ng 2nd wk ng july, hahanap na lng ako ng ibng shop na may installment. data plan na lng kukunin ko sa globe. kakainis, pa-asa much!

  43. aa1372 says:

    may naka-check na sa inyo kung talagang available na ang S2 sa Globe Business Centers sa Metro manila?

  44. ram32185 says:

    been to sm north annex globe they have 5 stocks availbl pro wala sila info regarding sa line na inoofer.. ang sabi sa akn dpa daw sgro un for dispose.

  45. aa1372 says:

    ngayon ko lang napansin… wala na yung PRE-ORDER NOW! sa S2 page sa Globe website…

    SEE MORE at APPLY NOW! na lang, hahaha…

    • raptur3d says:

      yup and ung fon free @ 3799.
      promo lng ung 2499 para masabayan nila ung promo ng samsung. wla nmn cla sinabi na makukuha mu agad ung fon. hehe. misguided tau sa “pre-order” na word ng globe. they have a different meaning to it.

  46. Chris says:

    I have a delivery date ( July 2 ). How about you guys?

  47. dz says:

    may kakatawag lang from globe… idedeliver daw nila tomorrow between 10am-5pm :D FINALLY!!! so we’re getting it before July 2 nga :)

    • Chris says:

      They gave me a date earlier (July 2) and then suddenly sinabi na sorry for the inconvenience your handset delivery will be moved? WHAT?!?!? at wala pang sinabi kung kailan! ANO BAAAAAAAAa???!!!?!?!?!?!

  48. Ram32185 says:

    Same here. They will deliver mine bukas between 10am to 5 pm dn. Sa wakas.

    • Chris says:

      I envy you guys. Mine was delayed but at least I am now assured that I have one reserved for me. Enjoy gadget guys and tell us when you receive it.

  49. aa1372 says:

    tanong ko lang kung saan niyo sinubmit ang mga documents na hiningi sa inyo? anong e-mail address?

  50. aa1372 says:

    may tumawag na rin sa akin! woot!

    bukas na rin idi-deliver yung akin between 10am-5pm!

    buti na lang ha! kasi kung hindi punta na sana akong GBC SM North e para dun na lang mag-apply!

  51. Chris says:

    Nice. I really envy you guys ma-eenjoy nyo na bukas ang SGS2 sa akin July 5 pa, sa Cebu kasi ako nakatira :). At least confirmed na ang delivery date.

    • aa1372 says:

      yun ang PANGAKO, bukas… haha…

      kaya pala July 5 pa sayo kasi sa Cebu ka pa pala?!

    • Chris says:

      Well, I hope ang PANGAKO hindi MAPAPAKO. hahaha. July 2 sana yun kaso nag cutoff by 11:30 am kanina bago ako nakapagconfirm sa delivery address. Sayang.

    • Mitch says:

      I’m in Iloilo pero I have a confirmed delivery date of July 2, but I cancelled my order of the phone. I had a confirmed pre-order din kasi sa samsung. I will only pay 26990 instead of 29790 for plan 299….

  52. xx says:

    May tumawag din sa kin kaninang umaga. Medyo busy lang kaya di na ko nakapag-update. Bukas din daw dadating yung unit ko pero sinabihan ko yung tumawag, kainin nyo yang galaxy s2 nyo! Biro lang hehehe. Syempre natuwa ako. Kala ko next year pa dadating e.

  53. Chris says:

    Mga pre, update nyo ako pag natanggap na ninyo bukas ang units nyo ha. Describe nyo ang packaging may nakita kasi akong ibang packaging ng SGS2 tulad ng sa India, malaki ang box at merong leather case included. Mag pa unboxing video kayo LOL!

  54. xx says:

    Got my phone na. Maliit lang yung box.

  55. aa1372 says:

    natanggap ko na rin ang S2 ko! woot! mga 11:30am

    ang liit ng box, haha… parang mas maliit kaysa dun sa mga nakikita ko na unboxing videos sa YT?

  56. dz says:

    got our phone na. kuya from globe called me at 9:12 am pupunta na daw sana sya. kaso sabi ko after 1 hour na lang. hehe. he was prompt naman at 10:30 :) loving it!

  57. aa1372 says:

    kamusta s2 niyo? sa akin may pink spot sa camera :(

    mukhang nabuksan na ng globe ang S2 Box ano?

    • xx says:

      meron konti pag tinitigan ko ng husto (yung naduduling na talaga ako hehehe) o baka malabo lang mata ko pero di naman big deal para sa akin:

    • aa1372 says:

      oo nga akala ko rin big deal siya pero ok lang naman pala, kung talagang pipicturan mo eh bond paper talagang makikita mo yung pink spot.

      OA lang pala yung mga nasa XDA, haha…

      guys, balitaan niyo ako kung may firmware update, o ano pa ha…

    • xx says:

      I suggest we move our discussion over at tcp (tipidcp.com) para di naman masyadong mag-overload ang comments dito hehe. Nagregister na ko kaninang umaga, pero secret na lang muna username ko dun hehehe. The thread there for SGS2 is this one:

      http://tipidcp.com/viewtopic.php?tid=17664

      Mga nagpreorder sa Samsung, excited na sa July 2 e. One thing I notice though regarding android (first android device ko coming from iOS), di sya masyadong pulido pagdating sa push notifications ‘no (unlike sa iOS na reliable ang delivery na ikaw na lang maiinis sa mga notifications na dumadating sa sobrang dami minsan)? O may na-miss lang ako sa configuration? And for me (sa tingin ko lang ha), mas maganda pa rin ang screen ng iPhone4 though the SGS2’s screen is already gorgeous. Weird din ang file system dahil nakalagay daw sa microSD yung mga ininstall ko na applications, e wala naman akong microSD. Hahaha. But I like the phone. Anyway, di na ko magcocomment dito sa post na to ha? Dun lang ako sa tcp. Thanks guys for the exchanges.

  58. Chris says:

    That’s a firmware problem search mo nalang sa net ang solution.

  59. ram32185 says:

    Got mine as well. ok nmn sya super light. Im.novice to android coming from iis. hope mtutnan k dn toh agad.pde b tau mg update sa phone lang?

  60. aa1372 says:

    may yellow tint yung handset ko :(

    • xx says:

      Saw your post over the official sgs2 thread. hehehe. anyway na lock pala yung thread na pinost ko na link sa taas. Sayang at may Samsung Mobile Philippines pa na employee na sumali sa thread na yun. For the rest of you guys (and gals) who would like to join the SGS2 conversation, go here:

  61. Cliff Rosario says:

    Globe already delivered my SGS2 handset yesterday.
    Weird though that some folks are complaining about the way the process was handled. Globe’s online team that handled my order followed up with me consistently last week by phone calls and I receive a phone call last Wednesday to inform me that somebody will be arriving to deliver my handset between 10a-5pm but they actually came 9am yesterday…

    A Question though.. the box I received is still sealed pa naman did anybody received there’s with the seal broken? and my package came with a sodexo GC.. walang leather case.. sayang.. lol.. the box is indeed small.. almost the same size ng box ng iPhone 4 ko..

    Right now I’m happy with it.. and it’s uber light.. ridiculously light.. it doesn’t really feel cheap.. this is coming from someone who have an iPhone4 as a primary handset..
    I don’t feel the HSPA+ though.. it’s at par with how my iPhone4 HSDPA connection is even if I tether to my laptop.. 2.5mbps at average..

    • Cliff Rosario says:

      I noticed.. official Globe telecom yung wallpaper na blue nung SGS2 that I got.. so that means lahat nga naopen na ng handset box for Globe to modify the settings or factory installed na siya wherever it came from..
