Smart's iPad Air and iPad Mini LTE Plan promo

By // No comments:
An iPad Air 16gb 3g + Wifi when bought retails for P25,490. An Unlimited LTE broadband plan on Smart is P999 monthly. If this math is very much correct, if you get your iPad Air 16gb 3g + wifi and a Smart Broadband plan 999, you will be shelling out

P25,940 +  (P999 x 24 months) = P49,916 in a span of two years

But if you get the iPad plan from Smart

P1,924 x 24 months = P46,176. Thats about P3,740 of savings.

Plus the fact that you won't be paying any big amount. The cost is staggered for 24 months.

Not bad, not really really bad :)

With that savings, I could buy a portable wifi (LTE) from Huawei from other stores.. If I have money tho. HAHA

Promo is until May 25, 2014 only

Sony Xperia VIP service - free pick up, delivery , loaner units and more

By // No comments:
This tweet from Ruffa G caught my attending.
Xperia VIP
- free pick up and delivery
- guaranteed loaner handset
- maximum 7 day turn around time

Now thats extraordinary (relative to philippines) after sales service.

My iPhone 5s' warranty will be carried out by globe which do not have free delivery and pick up when claiming for warranty. 

Warranty claims are processed by telcos for units that are under warranty period and on a subscription plan.

Globe also do not offer loaner units so if you surrender your iphone for analysis and/or repair you need to have an extra phone to use (although you can have your subscription paused for the meantime while service is being done if you dont want to use another phone). And the worst part of it, Globe can take as much as 2 months to hold your unit - which is explained to subscribers during contract signing.

Cheers to Sony Philippines for coming up with such convenient service.
