    Globe iPhone 3G Post-Paid Plans Unveiled?

    Published by: yuga under: Mobile , Telecoms.

    posted: June 10th, 2008

    Got an email tipping us of the possible Globe Telecom Post-Paid Plans for the new iPhone 3G coming this September in the Philippines. These postpaid plans are not final and may change but more or less close to what you’ll expect when it comes out.

    The starting price of $199 for the 8GB iPhone 3G model will come in a 2-year lock-in period with Globe Telecom. Here are the supposedly postpaid plans for new Globe subscribers:

    G-Max 3500 iPhone 3G
    Initial Fee: Php9,995
    Monthly Fee: Php3,500
    Free Text: 650
    Free Calls: 750 mins.
    Globe to Globe: Php3.50/minute
    Globe to Non-Globe: Php4.50/minute
    Excess SMS Rates: Php0.50/text

    Globe Platinum 5000 iPhone 3G
    Initial Fee: FREE
    Monthly Fee: Php5,000
    Free Text: 650
    Free Calls: 1,100 mins.
    Globe to Globe: Php3.50/minute
    Globe to Non-Globe: Php4.50/minute
    Excess SMS Rates: Php0.50/text

    Optional: Additional Php2,000/month for Unlimited 3G Plans (Globe Visibility). Plans have 2-year lock-in period with Globe.

    PrePaid Plans have not been finalized yet (due to Forex rates) but it will be in the range of Php20,000 to Php25,000.

    Note that these plans have not been verified but based on the existing mobile subscriptions currently offered by Globe, they seem to fit and make sense. The discounted 3G Globe Visibility plans is supposed to be the sweet deal.

    Apple may not be making profits out of the 50% cut on the iPhone 3G but they may be getting some revenue-sharing from post-paid plans from the telco. That’s the only logical reason why Apple was able to reduce the one-off price down to $199.

    Update: In the US, people may get the new iPhone 3G for $199 + $39.99 * 24 months from AT&T for a total of $1,158.76 after 2 years.

    Update 2: Unlocked iPhone 1.0 sells for Php29,500 in the black market.
