The past few days, I’ve been hearing from readers and friends that they were having problems registering to their usual Unlisurf promos.
I knew the telcos were gradually phasing out Unlimited Data promos, but I recently found out that they were still offering the unlisurfs on prepaid, and yes, even on postpaid!
These promos are still available at the moment, but I don’t know until when they will be.
Update Nov. 3, 2015 – Unlisurf has been discontinued and replaced by Surfmax, please read: http://www.karenmnl.com/smart-unlisurf-ending-replaced-by-surfmax/
Update Nov. 26, 2015: Also, check out Smart’s Big Bytes 70 – it is P70 for 1 GB of internet, good for 7 days. I think it is currently the cheapest priced legitimate promo (per 1 GB) at the moment.
So I called up Smart’s customer service to clarify which Unlisurf promos were still being offered, and here’s what I got:
The keywords that you need to text to register to the promos are in BOLD
UNLI 50 – unli 1 day, text to 211

UNLI 999 – unli 30 days, text to 211

UNLISURF 250 – unli 7 days, to 2200 + 250 texts to Smart, TNT, Sun
UNLISURF 500 – unli 15 days, to 2200 + 300 texts to Smart, TNT, Sun
UNLISURF 995 – unli 30 days, to 2200 + 300 texts to Smart, TNT, Sun
LTE 50 – unli 1 day, text to 2200
LTE 299 – unli 7 days, text to 2200
LTE 995 – unli 30 days, text to 2200
I was told that these Unlisurf promos are still available until further notice. And all the customer service reps I talked to told me that they don’t have any data caps at the moment.
Here are text messages I got from Smart after my calls:
As for Globe, Supersurf is still available via *143#. Choose “Surf Promos”, then “Supersurf”.
Here’s a screenshot of the Supersurf options available on Globe’s *143#:
Supersurf 50 (1 day), Supersurf 200 (5 days), and Supersurf 999 (30 days) are still available. You can also text the keywords to 8888.
The thing about Globe is that at least their Supersurf options are easy to look up. You’ll know whether they are available or not just by accessing *143#. Take note though that they still have a data cap of 800MB per day for prepaid.
This is from Globe’s Fair Use Policy page:
If a customer reaches the 1GB/day or 3GB/month threshold (Postpaid customers) or 800MB/day threshold (Prepaid customers, the internet speed will just slow down to make sure that others can also enjoy our shared resource.
Are you subscribing to any of these offers? What’s your experience?
