    It’s still available on my GigaLife app. It popups even on a PLDT Prepaid Home Wifi account.

    Tried the Plan Renewal online to check Smart Signature SIM-Only Plan Lite:

    But I feel Globe's ThePLAN Plus 599 has better inclusions. More data and Unli All Net includes local landlines.

    I agree! Globe's plan inclusion is better than Smart. I just hope their signal and data speed in my area is also great. haha. Globe doesn't have 5G in my area but Smart has and it's fast.

    Meanwhile in Zamboanga, unless you live in the city, 4G signal is absent and 3G is just terrible.

    Im using "magic data 199" no expiry, i think its 4GB for 30 days, im using the data mainly for messenger and viber whenever im outside (and some calls from time to time). If your streaming maybe you need i higher data plan. Its more than a month already and i still have credits left. Unlike before your forced to consume it for 30 days. Credits that are not used after 30 days will expire. Sulit for me.

    May nakapagtry na ba magport from Sun Prepaid to Smart Signature? I heard some news na may internal porting na din sa Smart network.

    Thanks for telling me this, nakakafrustrate naman yun. Sana gawin nalang din nila yung tulad sa Globe na pwede sa app magport. May nabasa ako sa other group na within minutes lang yung porting process from Smart Postpaid to Prepaid. Maybe depende sa store? Have you tried visiting another Smart store? Planning to port my Sun Prepaid to Smart signature for ESIM as well.

    Earlier I have preordered the Galaxy Z Flip 3 at the nearest Smart Store. Smart Online store is down.

    Smart store rep said na naka hold ang eSIM distribution nila. Planning to port my Globe Prepaid to Smart Signature pa naman sana on Sept 30 and get an eSIM.

    That's expensive. If you or your family owns a business I'd port your number from a personal plan to an enterprise plan.

    Smart released new line-only plans yesterday. This marks the return of unlimited data on retail Postpaid via Signature Plan XL+ 2499. Even Plan S+ is attractive, they doubled the data allocation from 10GB to 20GB and added unlimited landline calls as well. Signature device plans didn't change tho. Still the same 5GB on Device Plan S 999.

    Makes me wonder what other perk Infinity has other than a dedicated RM as well as huge subsidies on new phones. To add, Infinity doesn't offer Plan 3500 anymore.
