Smart introduces Family Ties Plans



Everyday can be a family day as Smart Communications, Inc. launches the Family Ties Plan. This suite of postpaid plans aims to foster stronger bonds among Filipino families, keeping them constantly connected and protected.

“We really sat down and thought about the unique needs of Filipino families, and we’ve discovered that a lot of them want to stay connected with each other all the time—whether it’s via calls, texts, or the various mobile apps,” says Kathryn Carag, Postpaid Marketing Head at Smart.

“With Smart’s new Family Ties plans, you no longer have to think twice about making that quick call to your son to check up on him at school or sending some sweet-nothings to your wife while at work because of the unlimited calling and texting features that come with the plan,” Carag adds.

Constantly Connected

Families can choose between two postpaid line offerings. The Family Ties Plan 900 includes unlimited calling within the family circle, unlimited SMS to Smart subscribers and 200 all-network texts, as well as 100MB of free data for each line every month. The Family Ties Plan 1800 comes with unlimited calls and texts to all Smart subscribers, 200 free all-network texts and 300MB of free monthly data for each line.

Both plans come with three lines and three smartphones of the family’s choice. Initial phone models include the O+ USA 8.2, O+ USA 8.31, Lenovo A269i, Alcatel Magic, Lenovo A369i and the O+ 8.37.

What’s more, families with more than one child can also enjoy these perks as subscribers may add up to six additional lines per subscription by just adding PHP 300 per line for Plan 900 and PHP 600 per line for Plan 1800.

Safe Online Adventures

Aside call and text features, Smart’s new Family Ties Plans also provide a unique way of protecting children when they go online on their mobile devices. In partnership with Vodafone, Smart will be exclusively offering the Vodafone Guardian App as a pre-installed app on smartphones available under the Family Ties Plans.

With the app, parents can set call and text-messaging filters and ban numbers. They can also help balance their children’s time online as the app allows them to block certain features at specific times.

To maximize their postpaid plans, users can subscribe to various call, text and data packages through Smart Postpaid Flexibundles, which can be easily availed of via SMS.
