Globe Telecom has decreased the prices of its new iPhone offerings with customized postpaid plans, specifically the iPhone 5C and 5S. Some would opine this could lead to massive purchases of the much coveted devices, especially this Christmas season, or in time when the entire country is still recovering from the recent calamities which struck the central Philippines and sales of the handsets aren’t that impressive just yet since launch.
The new offerings through Globe’s MySuperPlan includes the iPhone 5C, in which the 16GB base version now sells at only P1,349 per month under Plan 499. This includes a cashout of P850 per month within a 2-year contract. The Plan 499 postpaid package includes a 300MB LTE surfing plus free calls and SMS texts. The 16GB base version of the iPhone 5S on the other hand now sells for only P1,799 monthly under Plan 999. That already includes a cashout of P800 per month within a 2-year contract. This postpaid package offers buyers unlimited LTE internet surfing plus free texts and calls.
The Initial Offers
The much desired iPhone 5C was initially offered at P1,799 per month under Plan 999 for the base version (16GB). This plan offer has an P800-cashout each month in a 24-month contract. Initial offer for the iPhone 5S base version (16GB) was at P2,199 under Plan 1799, with a cash out of P400 per month in a 24-month contract.
Globe said the price decrease is due to the telco’s desire to make the newest iPhone devices available to more people under fully-customizable plans for postpaid deals.
Aside from the drop in prices, postpaid subscribers also enjoy free subscription to the anti-damage and anti-theft protection programs [under the Globe gadget Care], plus free and quick access to Facebook.
The prepaid price offers remain the same for both Globe iPhone 5C and 5S. One can buy the 16GB iPhone 5C at P29,000 while the 16GB iPhone 5S at P34,400. For those with credit cards, Globe offers a 12-month installment plan with zero interest. The prepaid kit includes a free nano-SIM (Globe-locked of course) card plus free 900MB usable for mobile browsing for as long as 3 months.
With this latest price cuts on Apple iPhones 5C and 5S, Globe customers can now enjoy the same amazing iPhone features for less. And it comes timely with the advent of the Yuletide Season as a valuable gift to your family and valued friends.
