Samsung Galaxy Note offered at Smart Data Plan 2000



Smart Communications is offering the Samsung Galaxy Note free at Data Plan 2000. The Galaxy Note is an Android-powered mobile phone (or a tablet with phone functionality) with a giant 5.3-inch 800 x 1280, a dual-core 1.4GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor with Mali-400MP graphics, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 2500 mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy Note also comes with a stylus. Apparently, this promo has been quietly running since December 19, 2011 and runs until December 31, 2011. I say quietly, since I only found out about this promo from a thread in TipidCP, a local mobile phone forum and online marketplace.

I confirmed the promo with @SMARTCares on Twitter, and they did confirm the Samsung Galaxy Note is being offered at Data Plan 2000, but did not confirm whether or not the promo is ending on December 31, 2011. 

If you have been wanting one of these devices, Data Plan 2000 is a very good option for getting one given that it retails for at least Php31,000 in the market. It would be best to apply for one before the end of the year.

  4. In addition to data, you get 150 minutes of voice call to all networks, and 200 SMS to all networks. If you exceed the allocation, or make IDD calls or send MMS, you get billed over the Php2000 a month.

    If you do not go beyond 150 minutes of talk and 200 SMS a month, you just pay Php2000 a month.

  11. ok thanks sir.
    i wanna get this galaxy note =)
    if i pay them hmm. lets say the first payment for the plan.
    do they give me the phone immediately? thanks for the reply

  12. It depends on whether you are approved immediately. Normally if you agree to auto debit your monthly payments from your credit card approval is within an hour. It also depends if they have the unit in the branch you go to.

    I would recommend Rockwell. Always get great treatment there.

    Enjoy your new phone. It's pretty amazing.

  15. i got a question about htc sensation xe..
    if u get it from smart plan 2000
    do u get 16gb of storage for it or not?

    ReplyDelete
  16. The Sensation XE I got (openline) from a HTC distro only came with 8GB. I think the Smart units are the same.

    ReplyDelete
  17. aw.. ty for the info..
    its better to get phones with 16gb
    like galaxy note

    ReplyDelete
  18. Actually, it is more like this:

    Sensation XE 1.1 GB internal + 8GB Micro SD card = Max 33 GB
    Galaxy Note 16GB internal + SD card slot = Max 48 GB

    The Note is an amazing piece of hardware if the size is right for you.

    ReplyDelete
  19. yup the size is fine for me. hahaha
    unlidata 2000 can give u unli internet wherever u go right? is that correct? ty for the answer

    ReplyDelete
  20. You will find some dead spots in buildings, but so far it has worked for me pretty much everywhere.

  21. i got a question regarding of this plan.
    do i need to pay for a cash out for getting this cellphone? ty for the reply

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sir, a quick question regarding the unlimited data plan, ive read some reviews or info online that there were a cap or a limit with regards to the internet use, does this still apply at this point of time? One example is downloading a movie online. Thanks sir. Really am hoping to get the answer to this question.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't know. I have never experienced the slowdown, but I am not sure if I ever exceeded the 1.5GB. I use my data plan for my phone only. I do not use it as a modem for my laptop.

    ReplyDelete
  24. If the phone is free at a plan, normally you just pay one month service fee in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  25. hmm i mean this cellphone sir?
    this galaxy note is it free at plaN?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yes,the Galaxy Note is free at Data Plan 2000.

    ReplyDelete
  27. So its still not sure if it has a limit for downloading such huge files.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Best ask again, but when I applied for the plan one year ago it was clear enough to me that after 1.5GB they could slow down my speed.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Tried applying for Smart data plan 2000 for Galaxy Note. But they require me to have 50,000 credit limit on my credit card to avail this plan. I only got 25k credit limit. So much for the long hours of waiting just to hear them say this to me. Just disappointing! At least they should post in their website the requirements they need for this plan.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sorry to hear about that. Yes, it would be better if the requirements were spelled out right away so that no one would have to wait hours to be denied.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have a question regarding the plan. What if you plan to go somewhere and won't be able to finish the 24 months contract? What happens next? Do you pay the remaining months left of your contract or you need to pay the whole amount of the phone? Thanks.

    1. Best double check (it has been years since I have been on postpaid), but if I remember correctly you pay for the cost of the device for the first 12 months and 50% thereafter.
