How to get SMART 2 Gb of internet data in Philippines for 6 days just for 50php or 1$
Once you arrive in Philippines, after checking immigration, you’ll see 2 stands of mobile providers – Smart and Globe. This instruction applies to Smart Sim cards. They are selling some tourist packages, but you don’t need to buy them. Just ask them for a free sim card or two or three. You’ll have to sign your name in the book and put the number from sim card they gave you . Very simple.
Once you have the sim card , just put it in your phone (your phone needs to be factory unlocked).
You get 300 Mb of data to use for 3 days right away. Just like that – FREE. And you need to do a Load – that’s how the top up is called in Philippines of 50 php. This will give you extra 700 Mb. Just to keep in mind that it’s still valid for 3 days from the first time you put the sim card in. Because stands at the airport doesn’t sell load of 50, they have 100, 300 and 500 amounts, you’ll need to get one you out in town.
So here you have 1Gb for 3 days. Another 1Gb you will get from 50php load you did. Just dial on your phone *121# hit call , choose GigaSurf50 ( package for 3 days 1Gb data + 300MB for iflix, YouTube, Spinnr, Vimeo, Dailymotion & Dubsmash. Now with UNLIMITED TEXTS TO ALL NETWORKS).
* One thing you need to remember : if you won’t choose this package before first 3 days end , the data won’t stop and you will start using it from your 50php load ( it’s not gonna last long). So check the first welcome message from Smart – that’s when your 3 day free data started.
You can get Globe free sim cards too, but they come empty , no free data. So you need to do a Load and choose the package.
