    Only each specific store would know their inventory.

    So I went to Rockwell to recontract and I was informed that even if you are getting the 128gb iphone 7 plus under giga plan 1999 you are required to pay 3 months of your plan. I find it annoying that they didn't put this info on their website. And it is a great disservice to their loyal clients.

    I'm seriously thinking of switching networks.

    Is this a new process? I recontracted mine also in Rockwell. Also got the iPhone 7 Plus 128gb under Giga Plan 1999 and I only paid for handset cashout which is P23k. No advance payment whatsoever. Did this on launch day Nov 11

    The sales guy told me they changed the process last week, I think? They said this was because way too many people got the free 32gb iphone, which initially only had one month advance payment.

    I dropped by to Smart Robinsons Galleria last Friday, just to have my iPhone Data Plan 1999 be replaced by Giga Plan 1999. Quite surprised that they already offered me to renew my contract (my contract supposed to end April 2017 pa).

    Went home with iPhone 7 plus Jet black! :)

    Wow! Globe hasn't replenished stocks and many loyalty customers haven't given units yet. Smart is doing great when it comes to recontracting I think as compared to Globe.

    Finally bit the bullet! I couldn't find a matte black at megamall or aura, and I didn't have time to go back to Rockwell, so I just settled for the gold iphone 7 plus. I can say, coming from years of using Nexus phones, it's a bit of a learning curve to use an iphone.

    I called *888 telesales to renew my line. I was asked to pay 5 months mrf before i can get the iphone 7. I declined. The advance mrf is for iphones only.

    Went to Smart Robinson's Magnolia last Nov 25. My contract is supposed to end in March 2017. They told me you can recontract without early term fee 6 months before your contract ends, subject to account/credit standing. Went home with a jet black 128gb 7.

    I arrived Manila last Saturday afternoon to attend a 4-day convention and renew our visas, went to Eastwood with my wife for dinner and buy some Christmas presents. Before heading home, we dropped by the Smart Center and inquired if I was eligible for retention (due on March 2017)... and I was.

    Time to replace my silver 6 which has suffered the frustrating "touch disease" 2 weeks after the 1 year warranty coverage and has been in coma for the past 2 months. Wanted to try the much touted 7+; however, only the 7s were available and that they will be calling me in 2 weeks once the unit is available.

    Last Tuesday, went back to Eastwood when my wife asked me to drive her to Citibank. Since vehicles were no longer allowed to stand in front of the Citibank building, I parked at the Eastwood Mall. Went to Smart just to check if they already had stocks of the 7+. Went home with this…

    ... and our visas were approved. :)
