SMART also offers bundles that are inclusive of some free minutes and texts. However, these free minutes labelled "all-net" may only be used to make calls to mobile phone numbers (i.e. those with a prefix of 09). Currently there are no bundles that include free minutes to landlines, which will be deducted from the main balance at regular per-minute rates.
Smart has partnered with Cebu Pacific Air to launch a free SIM card for tourists. Foreign tourists flying to the Philippines via Cebu Pacific from China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan receive a complimentary Cebu Pacific-Smart LTE Tourist SIM, which they can activate upon arrival in the country.
Their prepaid SIM card is available practically at every street corner. It's sold for 40 Pesos. Now most SIM cards are 4G-enabled, but there might be some old ones still around without 4G. Check before buying. You can swap an old 3G SIM in a Globe store for free to a new one, depending on the branch's availability. Registration of the SIM card can be done by visiting the registration page.
Prepaid SIM cards come with a free initial 70 MB data volume allocation valid for 1 week and initial activity period is 2 months. Once expired you have 45 days to recharge the SIM before it will expire for good.
Globe also offers bundles that are inclusive of some free minutes and texts called GoSAKTO. However, these free minutes may only be used to make calls to Globe mobile phones. Calls to Smart and landlines will be charged to a user's main balance unless it says "to all networks". All packages are valid for 7 days:
In 2016 Globe started a partnership with the National Tourism Promotion Board. To support the 'Visit the Philippines Again' campaign, it gives out the Globe Traveler SIM for free. They are available at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4, Clark International Airport, Kalibo International Airport, Mactan-Cebu International Airport, Francisco Bangoy (Davao) International Airport, Iloilo International Airport, Caticlan Jetty Port and Puerto Princesa (PALAWAN) International Airport. They are also given out on main incoming flights of Philippine Airlines for free.
After you complete the trial period, you can choose to either purchase full license or subscribe for additional benefits such as royalty-free stock video & audio, mobile to timeline, text to speech and speech to text. 2b1af7f3a8
