Philippines Mobile to Landline Call Rates

Calling a Philippines Landline from a Philippine Cellphone.

Calling a landline is often more expensive than calling another Cell or Mobile phone.  Also, not all plans will include landline calls in special deals.

Globe Prepaid rates June 2020:

Globe to landline: ₱7.50 per minute
Checked on 9th June 2020 at globe.com.ph/prepaid.html

Does your Phone detect the carrier of the number you Dial?

The PreFIX PH app is able to detect which Phone carrier is used by the number you are dialling.

The App then puts the carrier details on your contacts, and you can choose which of your SIM cards to use when calling or messaging.

A statement from the website of this APP:

PreFIX PH is the intelligent phone directory app that automatically labels your contact’s phone numbers with their network name. It goes through your contacts and specifies which ones are Globe & TouchMobile, Smart & Talk’n’Text or Sun Cellular. Never accidentally waste load again!

How to Transfer Smart Load

Transfer Smart Prepaid Load to another Phone

If buying a load for your mobile phone is not an easy option when you need it, you can always ask a friend to help by giving you some of their load.

There is a charge for this of just 1 peso, but it is often easy and worth it.

The person transferring the load could be standing right next to you or a thousand mile away.

There are at least two ways to transfer a mobile phone load between two Smart numbers.

ONE:

Smart Load 6 Transfer info

You send a text message with the number of the recipient and the amount you wish to transfer.

Send the text message to number: 808

The message, to send 50 pesos to number 0999 123 4567 would be: 09991234567 50

Just put the space between the recipients number and the amount being transferred.

You will then get a text message back telling you to text the word YES back. Do that, and the transfer will go through, and you will be charged 1 peso.

TWO:

Smart Load 1 Sim Toolkit

Use the Smart Sim Toolkit menu:

Select the following options in order:

Load
Pasaload
Mobile Number
Then enter the recipient number.
Then enter the amount to send.

You will then get a text message back telling you to text the word YES back. Do that, and the transfer will go through, and you will be charged 1 peso.

  Smart Load 2 Menu Smart Load 3 Menu Smart Load 4 Menu Smart Load 5 Menu

Load Denominations must be: 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 60, 100 or 200
No other amounts are allowed.

Try to Pasaload of 27, using 808, and you get this:

Does a SMART roaming SIM expire if it does not have load after a period of time.

Does a SMART roaming SIM expire if it does not have load after a period of time?

 

2015/16 Update:

Smart Prepaid subscribers who are registered to Smart’s roaming service abroad only need to load a minimum of PhP50.00 per month starting December 1, 2015. This amount has been lowered from the previous minimum load requirement of PhP100.00.

Should your load go below the minimum load requirement, receiving of incoming texts for your roaming account will be temporarily suspended at the start of the the following month until your next reloading. This process will start taking effect on January 5, 2016, and will recur every 1st of the month thereafter.

You will be notified via SMS if receiving of incoming texts in your Smart Prepaid roaming account will be temporarily suspended. You will still be able to send outgoing texts, however.


Original 2014 Text

That SIM will remain valid as long as it is active, but it will be automatically deactivated for roaming, once you use up all the load on your Smart SIM card.

Smart Bro Broadband SIM ONLY 50 php or 150 php

Smart Bro Broadband SIM – Should it cost 50 php or is really 150 php ?

In Angeles City, Pampanga at least TWO shops are selling the Smart Bro Broadband SIM for 150 pesos (One Hundred and Fifty Peso) each, even though it has P50 marked on it. They both gave the same reason; that the p50 is the wholesale price, the price they pay!!

The SMART website quotes the price as:

Prepaid SmartBro Sim

One-time fee: P50 for the SIM
Usage fee: Pay per use. P5 for every 15 mins. or avail of any usage package (Flexitime, Always On Plans & Unlisurf)
Freebies: Preloaded with P20 airtime

http://www1.smart.com.ph/Bro/products/sim-only

What price is the SmartBro SIm card in other areas ?

SmartBro 2I went to SM Clark, and bought one there, for only P50 …

It seems that the phone card sales shop outside JJ Supermarket wanted to make an extra P100 profit from me. As did the shop opposite. Maybe they are under the same management ?

I will stick to buying from SM in future.

SmartBro prepaid Broadband Load CANNOT be loaded onto a normal Smart Buddy SIM card

Can I load a SmartBro Broadband load onto a normal Smart SIM ?

The answer is “not in an easy one step move”.

A SmartBro prepaid Broadband Load CANNOT be loaded directly onto a normal Smart Buddy Sim card.

If you have a SmartBro Prepaid Broadband load card, and need to use it on a normal SIM, then you NEED to load it to a SmartBro SIM card first and then use Pasaload to transfer it to the SIM that you want it on.

This information is valid at 28 Oct 2014, as I just tried it.

Now I need to BUY an Broadband SIM to use my P300 SIM load.
