Here's some news for all you fab and busy moms out there: Smart recently introduced their Family Ties Plans, which helps you stay constantly connected with members of the family while ensuring a safe and protected environment for children when they use their mobile devices.
With this plan, 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 husband while at work because of the unlimited calling and texting features that come with the plan.
At the launch: Mompreneur and blogger Janice Villanueva and PR practitioner Ana Ongpin talk about how they juggle their family along with their hectic work schedules. Both love the new plan as it keeps them in touch with their kids and staff!
Here's the new TVC (which will air starting today):
Details of the Smart Family Ties Plans
Families have two choices for their postpaid lines: 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.
Meanwhile, 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 their 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.
But 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 P300 per line for Plan 900 and P600 per line for Plan 1800.
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.
Safe online adventures
But aside from providing call and text features within the family circle, Smart’s new Family Ties Plans also provide a unique way of protecting children when they go online on their mobile devices. With the popularity of the Internet and various social networking sites, children are more exposed to various online threats such as cyberbullying and online scams.
Which is why in partnership with telco leader Vodafone, Smart will be exclusively offering the Vodafone Guardian App as a pre-installed app on smartphones available under the Family Ties Plans. With just a few taps on the app, parents can set call and text-messaging filters and ban certain numbers from contacting their children, which helps prevent the risk of cyberbullying and untoward incidents with unscrupulous individuals.
They can also help balance their children’s time online as the Vodafone Guardian App allows them to block certain features at certain times, such as banning the use of games while they are still doing their homework.
