    from what i understand, recontracting is extending your current plan even if you still have a couple of months left (the number of months vary) in your existing contract. Say you have 2 more months, you recontract it to avail of any promo and you end up with 26 months contract with globe. Loyalty program, on the other hand, is renewing your line and you get to avail of some freebie phones or rebate

    Got mine here in SG for SGD920 without contract. They gave me a free back cover and screen protector. It's white and 16gb . They havent released the other variants ( blue, 32 Gb and 64 Gb).

    I'm reviewing the Samsung Galaxy S3 right now for a magazine. I can't get into details yet because I don't want to spoil the review, but I just want to let you guys know that this phone is hands-down the best one I've ever had the pleasure of using. It's unbelievable how intuitive, simple yet powerful it is!

    Sure it isn't quite as pretty as other phones on the market, but it more than makes up for that with the power under the hood.

    This beast is a game-changer!

    Smart called me the other day and told me that my S3 is ready for pickup this Saturday. Should I?

    It's just too hard to let go of my note. Let's see.

    I have been using mine for almost a day and so far I'm not impressed with the battery life. It's iPhone 4s like which is bad. I hope this improves with a few battery cycles. The S voice is good but not as intuitive as Siri.

    This is how I plan to spend the 1799 (unlimited data + 3 freebies + 800 consumables):
    999 unlimited data
    3 freebies x 25 texts and 5 mins call to other networks = 75 texts and 15 mins to other network
    consumable 201 call and text to other networks
    consumable 599 unlimited globe-to-globe call and text

    Same here, ordered the Pebble blue as well. Hoping to hear from Globe soon. I got approved for plan 1799. Heard that some of those who got approved for plan 2499 will be getting their units tomorrow at Mind Museum.

    I got to try this out at the display in Jump Center at Megamall earlier. The phone is pretty slick. The multi-tasking part is cool, as you just have to drag the apps anywhere in the screen (Minority Report style). The size of the screen blows the iPhone away. Now I'm not surprised why Apple is gunning for a 4" screen on the next-gen iPhone.

    I still find the iPhone a lot user-friendly though. I'm getting lost at trying to navigate the apps from the SGS3.

    Not really, I've been a windows machine user ever since I was in grade school, when I switched to Mac, I didn't take me that long to learn how to use it. Just like how I learned to use the iPhone hence, user friendly. :) Same as aragorn, I still find the iPhone more user friendly/easier to use :D had a hard time navigating my friend's Samsung Galaxy Note. Wouldn't deny the sexy appearance though.
