Use of SIM Card in the Philippines

Hello, this is Baguio Talk Language School in the Philippines!

 Can you imagine life without a cell phone and a laptop these days?

The first thing students do when they first arrive in the Philippines is to buy a SIM card.

In the Philippines, Smart and Globe are the most common telecommunication company.

The majority of students at the language school are using a smart carrier.

The smart card ranges from 40-50 pesos.

Above is Smart’s official website in the Philippines.

Telecommunication fees are sometimes postpaid, but usually prepaid.

Each student can choose his / her own data plan.

There are a variety of plans to choose from, including a plan that is used only for internet, call and text and only call, etc.

The picture above shows the data plan from smart homepage.

 Talk language students prefer the 999 pesos which has an internet 8 GB service plan in 30 days!

This is the recommended data plan at Talk Language School!

There is a hassle of reloading every week using a 2 GB data card plan which has a validity for 7 days. It is better to register for the promotion of Gigasurf plus 999, for they have the same features and you can save an amount of 599 in a span of 30 days. To do this, scratch first the protective ink at the back and a number will be revealed, enter the code by dialing 1510 followed by your SIM card number and press the call button.

After the process, a confirmation will be sent to you via text message that means the transaction is complete!

Please note that you must first tap Phone Settings – Turn Off Cellular Data before buying, loading card and registering your plan in the Philippines! Now you can enjoy internet connection.
