Well it’s bound to happen. The PLDT-Digitel is already final and they wasted no time in offering a postpaid plan that would cater to people looking to join both Smart and Sun’s network hoping some cross-network magic is going to happen that would reduce the cost for using both networks.
You’ve probably seen the ad.
Looks pretty self-explanatory. You get a combined Smart-Sun Plan and be able to text for free across both networks. You will also get 2 hours free calls to Smart numbers using the Smart sim and 3 hours to Sun numbers using the Sun sim. Plus, you’ll get a Nokia C2-03 dual-sim phone for free!
Anyway, things aren’t as clear cut as it seems. We were able to confirm a few things from Smart and Sun:
- You can only use your unlimited text within the same network. Smart to Smart or Sun to Sun. Same with the free calls. Use your dual sim wisely.
- You can apply for this plan from Smart Wireless Centers or from Sun Shops nationwide
- You will receive two billing statements per month, one from Sun and one from Smart
- You can only apply for this dual plan as a new subscriber (no upgrades)
