I think Globe wins this round --- it automatically disconnects the call once the 20-min mark is reached, limiting the calls to the absolute basics. Although from what I've read, ( you'll be charged the same 20 pesos even if the call is just a minute long. :D Nicely compiled data --- makes comparisons easy!

Mas astig ang unlimted Calls ng 25 pesos mo may 100 text Smart/TNT + 10 text to other networks + Unlicolsnyt from can only spend 25 pesos...including na sa package ang 1 peso maintaining balance....unlike sa Globe dapat at least 28 ang dapat ipalod kasi 7.50 ang maintaining balance....hahahahaha....
Two ways to avail Smart Alltext + Unlicolsnyt:
1. through non-registration: Punta lng sa suking retailer at magpaload ng AT + Call25
2. If you have regular load of at least 25 pesos just text C25 send to 2827...
O diba astig ang Smart? Affordable na at mas mura ang services,,almost 34 million pa ang gumagamit....

are you sure may ganon? I can't seem to find that info anywhere. hehe. May nakaavail na ba nito?
