FREE Mobile Internet for Smart Prepaid Subscribers

Got an e-mail from Smart Communications few days ago on their latest launch, and that is latest offer for all their prepaid subscribers starting on September 26, 2014.

As to why they’ll provide this to their customers, the Smart Communications Chairman, Manuel V. Pangilinan says “We are launching this initiative to provide a much larger number of Filipinos the opportunity to try out and experience the Internet, enjoy its benefits and, as we at Smart like to say, live more…

Mr. Pangilinan added “This special offer is specifically designed to assist our prepaid subscribers who make up the bulk of our population. Many of them already have the mobile devices capable of accessing the internet but have yet to use them to go online. In this way, Smart can effectively promote digital inclusion and spread the benefits of the Internet in the fastest and most effective way possible...

How to Avail the Smart FREE Mobile Internet?

Since Talk n Text and Sun Cellular is under Smart Communications, the Talk n Text and Sun subscribers can also enjoy the FREE internet on your mobile through sending the “FREE” text message to 9999. The registration is free and the mobile internet is free!

Once registered, you can consume your 30MB FREE mobile internet daily. Beyond that is not free. Still, 30MB was enough for me to post and update on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook all about the Cebu Blogging Summit 2014.

Other than the 30MB limit per day, there are also sites or apps that is not included. But you can use it for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, Wikipedia, Google Maps, Easy Taxi, Gmail, etc. and not for peer-to-peer uploads and downloads, VOIP, messaging, and videos.

This free internet of Smart is only available until November 30, 2014. I’ve also heard a lot of complaints and I haven’t used the free internet that much so I’ll be updating this post anytime this week to give my update or let’s just say review of this free internet on your mobile device. I don’t have a pocket WiFi and I do use mobile internet when I’m traveling or just not in my home. So let’s see!

Update: Smart’s Free Internet service extended to January 2015

3 Must Know Guardian Blade Saga Characters

3 Must Know Guardian Blade Saga Characters

Just last week, I was invited to come over to the presscon of TV5, a network here in Cebu Philippines for their new TV series the Guardian Blade Saga.

The Guardian Blade Saga

I can write all about it but hey, since they gave me a copy of the trailer it’s much better to hear it all about from them. So, here you go! Watch the video below:

Since it was a presscon, I was able to meet and greet with the actors and actresses of this new TV series and coming there gave me the opportunity to be able to watch the pilot episode of the Guardian Blade. With that, here are the main characters of the series that you must know about.

Lando Kuldoroy

3 Must Know Guardian Blade Saga Characters Lando

The story revolves around Lando role played by Jefferson  Yu, an orphaned boy who has the pastor taking care of him. The pastor raised him since he was young and it seems the pastor himself got some actions to share too.

Lando have a unique ability, and that is the ability to make an object move by force through his mind and the pastor trained him to hide it from everyone else. So yes, he’s smart, a geek, a nobody in their school and yet a powerful young boy.

Lieutenant Mirabel Greaves

3 Must Know Guardian Blade Saga Characters Mirabel

The nerdy and bubbly soldier from the feature, and with her sharp mind and skills in handling weapons she’s been tasked to protect Lando. The role is played by Monica Sacay who’s also bubbly and girl in person just like Lt. Mirabel.

Watching her on the pilot episode, she’s noisy, bubbly and I’d bet she’ll be the girl for Lando but then Lando is in love with someone else. So, hopefully Lando will fall for Mirabel in the future episodes.

Captain Tamara Angelus

3 Must Know Guardian Blade Saga Characters Tamara

Now this is the serious and tough girl, the war veteran of the future, well of course she’s a captain and I’d say Danikka Anne Ocampo played it well and her tough look helped it a lot too.

Tamara is the leader of the special force known as the Guardians of the Free Peoples of the Earth on the year 3095. With Mirabel, they are sent to the year 2014 to protect Lando.

There are other more characters that you might want to get to know, but for me these three characters are the ones you’ll watch mostly about.

The Guardian Blade Saga will air tomorrow, September 27, 2014 at 11:00am to 11:30am and that is every Saturday at TV5.

Let me know what you think of the pilot episode.
