The Globe iPhone 64GB 4S versus the Smart iPhone 64GB 4S - Postpaid options

We already compared Apple iPhone 4S postpaid plans for the 16GB model and the 32GB model. For the 64GB model, only Smart Communications offers it free on postpaid plans.

@Smart Data Plan 4000. Smart offers the iPhone 4S 64GB at its Data Plan 4000, which includes the following in the plan:
  • 400 minutes calls to all networks
  • 300 SMS to all networks
  • Unlimited data
Basically, this is a Php96,000 commitment over a period of two years.

If you won't fully utilize this particular plan, you may consider a lower Data Plan, like Smart Data Plan 1500, Data Plan 2000, Data Plan 3000, iPhone Plan 2499 or Plan 999 which will require you to pay some cash to get the iPhone 4S 64GB.

Data Plan 4000 
Cash out: Php0
Two year commitment: Php96,000

Data Plan 3000 
Cash out: Php5,000
Two year commitment: Php77,000

iPhone Plan 2499
Cash out: Php400/mo. over two years (Php9,600)
Two year commitment: Php69,576

Data Plan 2000
Cash out: Php12,000
Two year commitment: Php60,000

Data Plan 1500
Cash out: Php22,500
Two year commitment: Php58,500

Plan 999
Cash out: Php1,200/mo. over two years (Php28,800)
Two year commitment: Php57,576

If you are getting an iPhone 4S, the 64GB model looks like a better choice than the 32GB model.

@Globe Plan 3799. Globe does not offer the 64GB iPhone free at Plan 3799, but only requires a reasonable Php4,800 cash out. Plan 3799 includes the following:
  • Php2800 consumable
  • Unlimited data
  • 7 freebies 
A: 10 mins of calls & 200 SMS to Globe/TM
B: 5 mins of call & 25 SMS to other networks
C: 10 mins IDD & 10SMS to 10 international destination
E: Unlimited Call & Text to 1 Globe/TM number
This is a higher commitment of Php96,776 over two years.

You can also add cash to a lower plan.

Plan 3799
Cash out: Php4,800
Two year commitment: Php96,776

Plan 2499
Cash out: Php10,080
Two year commitment: Php70,056

Plan 1799
Cash out: 15,096
Two year commitment: Php58,272

Like the Smart offerings, the additional cash out for a 64GB iPhone seems to be worth it. Especially given that the phone's internal storage is not expandable.
