Smart *767 SOS Lends Php4 Emergency Load
This is probably the most useful (and daring) prepaid SMS promo I’ve seen in ages (saw the ad on PhilStar today). Smart SOS allows you to have a 4-peso emergency load when you run out of one.
All you need to do is dial *767 (SOS) on your Smart phone and you get 3 free SMS and 1-peso call load for a total of Php4 credit.
This amount will be deducted by Smart on your next auto-load. This will come very useful when you don’t have any load and you don’t have any means to top up your account.
It’s a bit of risky move for Smart especially for people who often switch prepaid SIM cards (those who use the free load of a new SIM and just throw it away afterwards) but I don’t think it’s such a huge risk from the end of the telco compared to the value-added service it offers. This is just a promo though and will last until November 16.
