Most of the inclusions listed above are pretty straightforward, except the VAS Content which stands for Value Added Service. In a nutshell, VAS Content will give users access to a chosen online service or app without any deduction to their monthly data allocation.


 

Do note, however, that some of these VAS contents have limit. Once a subscriber goes over the monthly limit, they will be charged with regular data rates which will either be deducted from their monthly data allocation or will incur extra charge on of their monthly service fee (MSF).

Here are the various Value Added Service contents that you can choose from with their respective monthly limit:

Stream Savvy: YouTube (600MB) or Spinnr (Unlimited)
Socially Active: Instagram (200MB) or Facebook (Unlimited) or Twitter (200MB)
Chatterbox: Line (Unlimited) or Viber (Unlimted) or WhatsApp (Unlimited) or FB Messenger (Unlimited)
Work Junkie: Gmail or Yahoo Mail (500MB)
Street Smart: Waze (Unlimited)

    It’s sad that local telcos seem to be moving away from time-based internet packages without caps.

    9 GB of data may seem like a lot at first, but it’s not really that hard to get there. A person may be making video calls on Skype, Viber or FaceTime with a loved one everyday. YouTube videos can be streamed at 720p, 1080p or even higher resolutions, and many useful videos online can be rather long.

    It’s unfortunate that, instead of being able to take advantage of what the internet can do (video calls to allow people to communicate better, video lectures and tutorials for learning things online, downloading Linux distributions to take advantage of open source software, etc.), the local telcos seem to be content with directing Filipinos mostly to low bandwidth internet uses, such as messaging, email and social media.

    They just “rebranded” their existing plans into “surf plus” postpaid plans.

    See what happened to the old plan 399 and 599 that offered unlimited calls and texts to the same network. Data plan 999 and up just got a new name.

    D lahat ng Smart Wireless Center alam itong Smart Plan Plus, They still offer the old plan.. On Plan 999; 9mins of free call VS. Sa new plan na 30mins.. Tsk2… Makapanlamang lng..

    @retro

    I asked Smart about it and to help you answer your question:

    One, it is not retroactive. They do not want to announce it per se because it would mean that all previous planholders who managed to get unlimited LTE and unlimited data plans are still entitled to their respective contracts.

    HOWEVER, it would mean that if you want to get your hands on that shiny new device, then it would mean that you will have a new contract along with the new set of stipulations.

    IF I were in your position? And if I happen to have an unlimited plan still under my belt? I would safeguard that account with my entire life!

    Some may ask, is there a possibility that they will migrate everyone? YES, that is possible. This is what Globe essentially did to their subscribers by migrating them to the Fair Use Policy. But if you noticed, they only THROTTLED down those who were on the unlimited plans. It means they could not FORCE MIGRATE the plans to the new ones 100% because there are NTC stipulations that also “somehow” safeguards the enduser.

    I hope my comments help you make a sound decision in the near future. I rarely check this website and only happen to visit it because I was double checking available information and also past information. If you read back, Smart moved from one plan to another one in less than six months. So as mentioned above, hold on to your unlimited data plan and just save up for a new phone device. There are lots of cheaper and even locally branded phones [I have used a few and they are quite sturdy and serviceable] that have high end features like LTE connectivity. It is better than getting a supposedly FREE phone or discounted phone only to end up paying for more bandwith.
