Smart Gold Lite Plans V. Smart Gold Regular Plans
I’ve been using my Smart Gold Lite Plan 500 for about 5 months now and I recently got a Smart Gold Consumable Plan 1800. I would like to compare the two plans for Filipinos who are thinking of getting a post-paid plan from Smart.
Gold Lite is a SIM-only plan, meaning you’ll only get a SIM card and no phone kit comes with it. Applying for a Gold Lite plan only takes approximately 30 minutes with only one (1) valid ID as a requirement. After that you’ll get your Gold Lite SIM card. With Regular/Consumable plans, you need to go through a week of processing and wait until the phone you want is available.
A simple comparison:
|Gold Lite||Gold Regular/Consumable|
|30 Minutes Processing||3 to 5 days processing|
|1 Valid ID Required||Valid ID and Proof of Income Required|
|2 Pesos Smart to Smart Calls||Depends on the Plan (6.11 for Smart to Smart on Plan 500|
|6 Months Contract||24 Months Contract|
|Plan 300 – Online Bill only||Paper Bill|
|Low Credit Limits||Higher Credit Limits|
Only problem I see is they base the credit limit on the Unbilled Charges and when you reach the limit, your line is automatically redirected. For example, if your credit limit is PhP 700, when your unbilled charges reached that amount, you’re calls and text messages will be redirected (Meaning you can’t send SMS and place calls).
Either way, both type of plans are good. I haven’t encountered any problem with my Smart service.
