Smart Postpaid Freedom Plan unveiled

Smart Communications introduced Friday, July 27, the new Smart Postpaid Freedom Plan which offers no minimum monthly fee and no lock-in period or contract.

The application process is also easier. Say goodbye to proof of billing as applicants are only required to fill-up a simple application form and present a valid ID to avail the Freedom Plan.

With Smart’s Freedom Plan, subscribers pay at the end of the month for actual consumption.

This plan has a credit limit of only P600 per month which can be used to purchase service “buckets” as follows:
  • Trio Talk 150 for only P150 - 150 minutes of calls to Smart, Sun, and Talk ‘N Text subscribers, valid for 15 days .
  • All Text 200 for only P200 - 2000 texts to ALL networks plus 150MB of mobile surfing, valid for 30 days.
According to this blog post, the Freedom Plan is Smart’s “strategy to convert prepaid subscribers to postpaid subscribers” which makes sense as it increases the telco’s postpaid subscriber base and, of course, the probability that they upgrade to regular postpaid plans in the future.
