Smart’s Unli BB Plan 549 to compete with Globe BB Max
According to a source that talked to a Smart CS, the carrier is about to introduce a new Smart Unli BB Plan 549 that will directly compete with Globe’s BlackBerry Max 599.
The Smart Unli BB Plan 549 isn’t up yet on the Smart website but it is now being offered as retention plan to subscribers.
The current BlackBerry Unlimited Data Plan on Smart is set at Php1,200 per month. The Unli BB Plan 549 will definitely undercut the Php599 pricing with Globe BlackBerry Max package.
If you’re on the Smart All-In Plan, the Unli BB Plan 549 can be included in the package with the remaining balance as consumable credits.
Updated: We got a copy of the new Smart All-In Plans BlackBerry Edition. Here’s the chart I created for the new plans:
Here are some of the restrictions and fine print:
– Unlimited BlackBerry services (â€œUnli BBâ€) include local mobile browsing thru BlackBerry.net (BB APN), email thru BlackBerry.net, Social Networking sites for BlackBerry, and BlackBerry Messenger. Unli BB covers activities on BlackBerry.net (BB APN) only. Browsing charge of P10 per 30 minutes will apply if the Subscriber uses SMART and SMART Internet APNs.
– Access to Wifi is not allowed. Limited to phone browser’s APN only.
– The Plan is fully consumable. Subscribers of these Plans can register to additional services listed below via SMS registration. Fees for these services will be deducted from the remaining available consumable. Any amount on top of the remaining available consumable fee shall be paid by the Subscriber.
