More than a month ago, our neighbour posted on Facebook a rare find she discovered at Gaisano Mall. It was a phone sold by Smart Communications for only P888. I had to rub my eyes because I had to be reading it incorrectly. But it was really priced at only P888. Sure it was not the most fab phone out there, but for P888, it was a notable find.
I checked Smart’s website and the phone was already sold out. However, I wrote my name in the waitlist — that was before I lost my phone, though, so the number I listed there was no longer contactable so I just checked the website every now and then. I wasn’t able to inquire about it in a physical store until weeks later when I applied for a phone plan under Smart and the CS rep confirmed that the units are all sold out.
But one Sunday, I checked the website on a whim and the P888 phones were available again! I immediately placed an order for two phones and waited. Despite the reviews saying that the phones took too long to arrive, my order arrived only after four days (which is normal for Davao City).
