Smart Wipe-out Program Explained
Smart launched the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C today at a low-key media event at the Fort. It’s perfectly understandable they toned down their efforts though considering the sensitive situation brought about by Yolanda. The plans were already announced last week but one particular offer they have that got more details today was the Smart Wipe-out program. Wipe-out allows existing Smart subscribers still locked-in with their postpaid contracts to get either the iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C under a renewed plan.
Here’s how it works as spelled out in the Smart Wipe-Out website:
1. Go to the nearest SMART Store and Wipe Out your current contract by paying for your discounted Wipe Out Fee depending on the number of remaining months on your current contract.
2. Upgrade to an iPhone with your preferred Postpaid Plan. See table for the corresponding iPhone handset cash-out applicable to your chosen plan. Just present 1 VALID ID to renew your contract.
3. Get your very own iPhone with FREE 1 year handset insurance (plus exclusive accessory discounts from Otterbox or Beyond the Box) and enjoy your refreshed contract with SMART.
Smart Wipe-out In a Nutshell
It’s actually very simple. Here’s a two sentence explanation on how it works:
Smart Wipe-out lets existing Smart postpaid subs under lock-in contract to renew their plans and get an iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S by letting them pay up to 75% less their pre-termination fee.
Naka lock-in ka pa ba sa contract sa Smart postpaid at gusto mo pa rin ng bagong iPhone 5C o 5S? Pwede mo gamitin yung Wipe Out program para i-renew plan mo at makakuha ka ng iPhone 5C o 5S tapos yung pre-termination fee mo discounted up to 75%.
To get the computation of your Smart Wipe-out discounted pre termination fee, just head over to the nearest Smart store. If you want to get an idea though it’s basically your monthly service fee multiplied by the remaining months of your lock-in period. For example:
You’re under Plan 2000 and your contract duration is 24 months. You’re already on your 15 month in the contract. This means you have 9 months left in contract. Your pre-termination fee should be Php18,000. However Smart Wipe-out gives you a 50% discount which means you just have to pay Php9,000 and you get to renew your plan AND you get your free iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C. You don’t have to trade-in your previous handset (like the iPhone 5). You can sell that if you want to cover for the pre-termination fees. You also get to keep your plan which has UNLIMITED LTE data. Pwede. 🙂
