before, the unlimited texting was the fad. some of my friends will not text me because they are unlimited in their network and they only have 1 peso left in their balance. if they spend that 1 peso they cannot enjoy the unlimited text in their network anymore and have to load another 30 pesos which is kind of expensive. right now, most phone companies are already offering the unlimited all network text and i am so happy because friends from globe, smart can already text me in my sun network. what are your thoughts about this guys?

The offer is a good deal since it caters to everyone. Unfortunately, I can't use that because I am a TM subscriber. But, I am happy for those who are being benefited by these offer. Do you know if this is just in the trial phase? I might buy another sim card some other time.

i dont know if it is still in the trial phase mabel. but i know that they hav already broken the barriers between networks. i have observed that TM does not have the unli all network yet but then maybe soon because globe already is starting to offer it.

Hope they will. If it is already offered by TM then I don't have to change my sim card or switch to another network. Changing the phone number is the "factor most considered" when changing sim cards, in my opinion. And I've changed my number for more than 4 times now. I don't want to change it again.

yes, it is really difficult to change sim card because it is so tedious to send everybody your new number and some friends also get their messages lost to the old number.

This is definitely a great development. That is certainly the advantage of having many networks as considered to only one which will be able to monopolize the whole communications system. This way, we will be able to choose plenty offers and of course each of them will continue to offer more to outweigh each other.

right, the benefit will all go the consumers and these companies will try even harder so that they will rule the business.

Hello there. True, Globe and smart cellular network here in our country now offer unlimited text to all network. But I don't know the keywords of it because Smart keeps on changing theirs. I have a globe, smart and sun number too.

right, that is why i quit smart years before because they always change their keyword and also the number that you send it too. unlike sun when they have only 1 number that you send the keyword too.

Yeah, networks nowadays are opening already. We have this all network text already. Hope soon they will make this a little cheaper(Hehe). And soon to be, maybe all this big network in our country will work as one.

i hope so too that they will work as one. i think this is just the beginning of them working as one because it looks like they are offering more or less the same service.

this is really good news to everybody especially to avid users of text messaging in the country. oh well, we are the number in texting, the text capital of the world. oh, i guess this is really the answers to our prayers. the networks' answer to the call of the congress to decrease the charges of network companies in texting.

i think you are right. in a way they are letting the people save money because they can now text other networks for free. i guess they are not able to lower their rates but they provided a beneficial freebie

I think because of competition that's why telcos are having such promos, because of technology now a days they need to change their strategy so that consumers still buy their load denomination. we have a lot of means to text other networks through the use of internet, we have yahoo messenger, gmail and chikka messenger that can be used to text our friends using a mobile phone.

right! competition for telcos is getting tougher every year and if they dont go with the fad and cater to the need, they will surely not be appreciated by their consumers and may go bankrupt.
