SMART and Globe Telecom Users, Here’s How to Enjoy Free Facebook Surfing in Dumb Phones

Nope. The right term is Feature Phone. So please don’t take dumb phones literally. But yeah, they aren’t that smart to do advance computing! J

Okay. Here in the Philippines, Sun Cellular subscribers have been enjoying unlimited Facebook access on feature phones since last year through Facebook Zero. It was announced that Facebook Zero is coming to Smart subscribers, but it appears it didn’t push through just yet. Eight months later, Facebook made available its app for features phones, partnering selected carriers in the world to offer free surfing for the first 90 days; however, Smart and Globe were not included in the list. But now, Facebook updated the app with a new set of partner-carriers to offer free data access for a limited time; and that includes Globe Telecom and Smart Communications! This is good news really, that every subscriber using a feature phone with support for Java apps would enjoy using Facebook with revamped interface, allowing users to access some of the popular features available on desktop version.

For you to learn more on how to download and use the app, hit the video after the break.

Note that Facebook for Every Phone App will work with over 2,500 different phones, so I’d bet yours is covered. Again, to echo the tutorial from the video above, you can download the app by visiting m.facebook.com and scrolling down to the download link, or by entering d.facebook.com/install directly into your mobile browser.

Enjoy! And of course do let us know how you find it.

Update 1: SMART confirmed to support free Facebook access using this app.
Update 2: Globe Telecom Don’t Offer Free Access to Facebook through Mobile App for Java
