    that's a very bad deal IMO, 3GB? it is like having a Ferrari and using the worst gas/oil in the market. this is Globe we are talking about though so they might even make it 2GB and call it the best plan ever!

    I split my data needs between smart and globe because data is equally bad between the two of them.

    I currently have two SIM-only plans

    P599/month with Globe on an Apple iPhone 6s
    • Unlimited Calls & Text Globe & TM networks
    • Unlimited Calls within 1 area code like Metro Manila's 02 (Globe's Duo)
    • 3GB Data
    P399/month with Smart on a Google Nexus 6P
    • Unlimited Text to all domestic networks
    • 20 mins of Calls to all domestic networks
    • 3GB Data
    • 0.5GB FB Messenger, Viber & WhatsApp

    Planning to get it through Platinum plan instead. Lowest is at 3,800/mo and you have a base 20 GB allowance of data. Plus, there’s an option to use 999 of your 1,500 consumable for an all month data. You’ll also use Globes priority network, as well as have exclusive perks.

    So, it’s confirmed. Only the 8 & 8+ will be released on the 17th.
    Hoping Globe will have enough stocks this time.
    Can’t wait for the preorder this friday. :)

    Based on the US price of unlocked iPhones this is how much the iPhone 8, 8 Plus & X will cost with 12% VAT over 24 months

    iPhone 8
    ₱1,670.86 64GB
    ₱2,029.42 256GB

    iPhone 8 Plus
    ₱1,909.90 64GB
    ₱2,268.45 256GB

    iPhone X
    ₱2,387.97 64GB
    ₱2,746.52 256GB

    Forex: $1.00 = ₱51.22

    This excludes the cost of SMS, voice minutes and cellular data.

    The iphone X pricing is not yet available but it will most likely follow the 8plus 256 gig cashout for the 64 gig X.

    Legit?! If I'm not mistaken, the handset price for iPhone 8, as shown in the pic, is the same as the 6s' two years ago at Plan 1799.

Been recontracting with globe except for last year when i opted to get an unlocked one, but i dont remember getting any special offers... i did got to the philmug-globe launches too and received some goodies like Bluetooth speakers from jbl but nothing with regards to the plan itself, Maswerte nang makasama sa launch day noon hehe

    Would you know if they still offer cashouts to reconcontracting accounts that are paid in 24 installments?

    As far as I know, yes, cashouts for recontracting accounts can be charged to bill payable in 24 months.

    Thanks! I crunched the numbers for Plan 2,499 of each iPhone.

    Service fee minus ₱502 consumable is between ₱800-900/month. It varies based on forex

    Total cost of P2,499 plan over 2 years is equivalent to the price of any two same model iPhones without VAT.

    I thought the release was supposed to be on November 17th? Their store pick up option shows November 21.
