I used to subscribe to Smart's one-day unlimited mobile internet offering. Sometimes, I even register to one-day LTE unlisurf promo eventhough my phone isn't LTE-enabled. And yes, my phone has got an internet connection. Lately, I have been busy because of my work's demanding schedule. I have noticed that my usual one day unlimited mobile internet connection is somewhat being wasted. Thus, I think of ways on how to minimize my internet cost without sacrificing my needs for internet. I have tried several other promos from Smart but I think what fit my lifestyle is the Flexitime promos. 

Smart has several Flexitime offers on the list below.
Currently, as I write this post, I am still subscribed to Flexitime 50. Flexitime 50 gives me 5 hours mobile internet connection, and that's valid for three days. In average, I can have more than one and a half hours internet access. That's sufficient enough for my basic internet needs such as reading news, updating this blog, and visiting my accounts on different social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and among others. Another good thing with Flexitime is per minute charging of transaction plus you can share your data access to anybody with the tethering feature of smartphone. This is really great offer, isn't it?  You can easily budget your subscriptions. Before I forgot, there are two ways on how to register to Smart Flexitime offers. You can send text "Flexitime 50 to 2200", or just go to SmartBro dashboard and click on Flexitime 50. You need to confirm your subscription prior availing the said offer.

With regard to speed of the internet, Flexitime 50 gives me slow internet connectivity. As per apps on Android, download speed is below 0.4mbps and upload speed is even lower than that. 

Have you tried any of this internet promo from Smart? What can you say about it? Please comment below.

It was several years ago when I first heard this phone brand. It had a commercial before being aired during commercial break of Philippine Basketball Association. The said ad from Myphone was featuring its dual SIM phone units being the pioneer to offer in the country. During that time, mobile phone was still very expensive and only few could afford to buy. MyPhone has broken that custom and offered very affordable units. Since then, Myphone has become traditional brand of phone in the Philippines, and it is now considered as top local phone brand in the country today. But how far do you know Myphone as phone brand? 

Below are history, facts and information about MyPhone
  • MyPhone is technically a home-grown Filipino brand. You won't find this brand in other countries.
  • MyPhone was founded by Mr. David Lim in 2007. Mr. Lim was dubbed as the "modern day David" because he dared to battle against giant and established phone brands in the country such as Nokia, Sony Ericson, Alcatel and Motorola.

  • According to the information I have read from the internet, as disclosed by MyPhone Facebook page, it has exclusive contract manufacturer in China. Meaning, it is not mere rebranding China phones rather it is designing its own phone. With this setup, it can also monitor the quality and can make quick adjustments.
