I finally bit into the better network last Friday during the Smart iPhone 5 launch party at *whisper* Resorts World Manilaaaaaaa!
Granted my post-paid plan wasn’t really that high, but the least they can do was offer me something, anything really, for being such a loyal customer (since 1999!) who pays on time ALL the time.
Personally, I was pretty okay with the service of the other network. Nothing to complain about really. But it was like being in a long, stagnant, boring relationship. Nothing new, nothing exciting.
Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Smart, like how customer service is better and how they regularly offer retention plans and other things, so I was really thinking hard whether to make the switch or not.
When the news came out that the iPhone 5 was going to be launched soon, I decided it was THE time to make the switch.
New phone, new line, better network! Woohoo!
Smart iPhone 5 Launch Party at Resorts World Manila
What I wore to the Smart iPhone 5 launch party! Don’t you just love my geeky skirt? Bought from Etsy via House of Flair!
Aside from my geeky outfit photo, I didn’t get to take any photos at all since I forgot my camera again (bad blogger is bad!), but thank god for social media, you can check out Instagram photos of the launch party with the #SmartiPhone5 hash tag!
The launch party was super fun! Free flowing food and drinks, great company and celebrity sightings everywhere!
I saw Jinri Park, Rhian Ramos with boyfriend KC Montero, Kelly Misa, Nicole Hernandez, Boy’s Night Out of 89.9 and a lot more!
This is why geek bloggers do NOT have their photos taken with fashion bloggers, haha! ;) With Vern and Vernice. Photo c/o Liz.
The highlight of my night was finally meeting Abbie Real of Smart in the flesh, haha!
All in all, it was a pretty great night! (Wished I could have stayed longer for the after-party at Republiq.)
People won lots of prizes and I went home with my very own sexy black 16GB iPhone 5, what more can I ask for? ;)

In my opinion, Smart offers more bang-for-your-buck plans and the unit-only prices are considerably cheaper, with prices pretty much the same if you get them from the US Apple Store (converted from USD, of course).
I can’t personally say anything yet about Smart’s service since I haven’t made any long calls, but I can definitely say my relationship with Smart is off to a good start.
Oh, and can I just tell you that’s it sooo awesome that Smart retained the last 4 digits of my old number so that it’s much easier for me to remember my new Smart number? Remember to request for that when you sign up for a Smart post-paid line!
