globe or smart?
13 May 07
I have always used SMART telecom Philippines. I have had two Philippine sims only and they are both SMART. The first one had worn out and the second one is for my roaming here in Thailand. It's cool. Imagine, my friends and family can send me SMS at a very low cost. I don't know why I never wanted to use Globe. Just not attracted to them. Sorry! I am very happy and satisfied with SMART services. Long live SMART telecom Philippines!

Ok, thanks for the response I've been a smart user since 3 years but i shifted to globe now coz sometimes smart send me a logo without my permission wether u accept it or not they charge you and i didn't join any promo from them coz they charge you and sometimes you'll be surprise that you credit will be zero without using it unlike globe they don't have hidden charges the msg or promo's they sent were free...

I agree that globe is good network but i'm also using sun because of the cheaper load than globe. Many cellphone users are using globe and globe has a good signal. Everywhere i go the signal of globe is good but i think their only disadvantage is the internet. They are very slow when it comes in internet so we are using smart when it comes to internet. I think it will still depend on the place when it comes to signal.

hi... I uses both sim... and for me it depends on the area Like for me here in San Pablo City, some places have better signal for globe and some have better signal for smart. But since PLDT and Smart have a tie-up with each other its cheaper using Smart plus Smart have better and more promos than Globe. I haven't tried Sun yet coz most of my relatives don't use it yet

I started with SMART, so I am very much comfortable using their services. I think their Unlimited Text Scheme is more reasonable compared to Globe, and the reason why I love SMART, too, is that the cell site is just located in the next subdivision, making the signal very strong. Globe's cell site is quite far from here so checking for signals is a bit difficult. I have heard of people complaining losing load, but I never had a problem like this in the nearly 9 years of using SMART.

i think Globe is better when it comes to costumer satisfaction and i use globe also but money savings wise i go for Sun cellular because it has the best bargains for a cheap use of mobile technology but not much on quality but very useful to save a lot of money...

I am a Smart subscriber and I found out that smart is the best cellphone network provider and have a lot of signal everywhere in the Philippines. Like today, one of my cellphone who is a globe, and that whole day, the sending option is always failed and I asked all my friend if they are also encountered that problem, and they say yes. And I don't encountered that problem in my smart.

For me its Globe. I've been a cellphone user for a long time and eversince it's only Globe that i used as network provider. I can't really compare it with Smart but just hearing with other users Smart really sucks in stealing load. I'm glad i'm not one of them. I'm happy with Globe and i think i won't ever switch to other networks even if they have better unlimited call and text offers.

Actually, I have a SIM with all the networks: Globe, Smart, and Sun. But if you will ask me which network I prefer, well it would GLOBE! I got my first cellphone in year 2000 and GLOBE was my first network. After 2 months, my Dad purchased me a new phone then it was operated by SMART. SMART was a newbie in the gsm telecommunication industry then. When my cellphone had no load already, I immediately loaded 300 card but unfortunately, my text messaging was not activated or it always says check operator services. For 10 days I suffer the check-op problem by SMART. Since then, I had a phobia in using the smart network. Cellsite coverage wise, smart have more cellsites and have a strong signal. Even in the mountains, smart has a signal. So if you are a frequent traveller, SMART would be the best network to use. However SMART loves to steal loads. You will just wonder why your balance is already P 0.00 without using your load. I just really feel secure and comfortable in using GLOBE since most of my friends are globe-users and I can really maximize the unlimited texting service.
