The wait seemed to take forever—but finally, the iPhone 5 arrived in the Philippines and we got invited to the launch of the launch at the Globe Business showroom in Valero Telepark in Makati. Everyone was excited from the moment we went through the registration at the entrance—after all, the iPhone 5 is the most desired gadget in the market right now; we couldn’t wait any longer to know about its awesome features.
Bloggers and owners of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) were invited to the launch, which highlighted how the iPhone 5 can help SMBs run their business better, more efficiently, and at less cost.
The bloggers and entrepreneurs–all fans of the iPhone 5–lined up to be among the first in the Philippines to own the device. After completing some preliminary documentation, they were finally issued their very own iPhone 5 units. Since the iPhone 5 uses a Nano SIM, they had to replace their existing SIMS with a Nano version.
The Nano SIM is 40 percent smaller than a micro SIM. The micro SIM itself is already 1/3 smaller than a regular SIM. Friendly and helpful Globe Business staff helped us change our SIMs—and it was great that we were able to keep our old cellphone numbers.
Thankfully, the new iPhone 5 units were ready for use after the turnover process, including SIM change, was done. Delicious snacks and refreshing beverages were served to guests.
By the way, Globe Business gives iPhone 5 users the option to amortize the cash out for their iPhone 5—a great idea, right? This way, more subscribers can get an iPhone 5 plan more affordably and conveniently.
Globe Business offers the following iPhone 5 plans to interested SMBs:
Business Plus postpaid plans
These plans’ costs and offerings depend on the type of iPhone 5 (iPhone 5, 16GB; iPhone 5, 32GB; and iPhone 5, 64GB) purchased. Business Plus subscribers have the option to amortize their iPhone 5.
Business Plus plans are customizable depending on the subscriber’s needs. The plans provide unlimited calling within a pre-determined group; bulk or unlimited calling to Globe/TM, landline, or even overseas calls; bulk or unlimited messages to Globe/TM or other networks; and bulk or unlimited mobile Internet connection.
Business Flex postpaid plans
Business Flex plans for the iPhone 5 offer fully consumable voice, texting, and mobile Internet features. Business Flex plan subscribers also have the option to register and use various Unli offers from Globe Business.
