Get Samsung Galaxy Note II Free on Globe Plan and Smart Data Plan

One of the much awaited smartphone this year is the Samsung Galaxy Note II, the successor of the popular “phablet” Samsung Galaxy Note. The Galaxy Note II will be (or is now) available in the Philippines. The two giant telecom networks, Globe and Smart will be offering Galaxy Note II to its subscribers. If you visit their respective web sites, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is free on Globe Plan 2499 and up, while with Smart it’s free on Unli Data Plan 2000.

I’m pretty sure that the first batch of Galaxy Note II will be sold out immediately. Luckily you can now pre-order them and reserve your unit before they run out. Just like the Samsung Galaxy S III or iPhone 4S before (and most probably the coming iPhone 5 too), the first wave of stocks usually runs out fast.

Samsung Galaxy Note II Free on Smart Data Plan

If you think that the plan 2499 is too much for you, then Smart is making the Galaxy Note 2 free at Unli Data Plan 2000. But Smart does not have any pre-order promo right now. This type of plan has usually a two-year lock-in period, and you get unlimited mobile surfing plus the consumables.

If you don’t want to be tied up to any network and just want to get the Samsung Galaxy Note II with the cheapest price in town, you can also check out online stores in Philippines or the grey market.
