Following the official announcement of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus offers, Globe launched the latest smartphones differently this year with the Globe of Good bundle. Through the Globe of Good bundle, customers were able to get the new iPhone and at the same time have the opportunity to give back to various communities.
With the customer’s support for Globe and the new iPhone 7, they were able to contribute a special Globe of Good gift to selected partner causes. Participating recipient organizations include KIVA, an online crowdsourcing platform to support micro-enterprises; the Global Filipino Schools program that brings 21st century learning in public schools through ICT; and finally the Hineleban Foundation for the rehabilitation of forests in Northern and Central Mindanao.
Upon receipt of their new phones, customers received the voucher that confirms their donation to all three organizations.
“We are grateful to all our customers who renewed their postpaid plans for the new iPhone 7. With their help and support, we were able to make this year’s launch extra special. It is truly an incomparable feeling to be able to contribute to the greater good just by doing a simple thing such as renewing a postpaid plan. So many communities will benefit from this gift, from students, to entrepreneurs and of course, for the environment,” says Globe Senior Vice President for Consumer Mobile Business, Issa Cabreira.
True to its brand of differentiated customer experience, Globe Platinum customers were able to receive their brand new smartphones on the first day of the iPhone 7 launch. Their iPhone 7 units were personally delivered by Globe VP for Emerging Strategic Businesses, Coco Domingo, and Globe Platinum Marketing Head, Kaisie Del Carmen together with their respective Platinum Relationship Managers.
During the midnight countdown, Globe also organized a fun midnight photo walk challenge that had different teams from the media, influencers, and partners completing various photo-challenges to win the new iPhone 7! The activity consisted of riddles that needed to be solved as a team as they go around BGC, Taguig. The winning team got to be the first ones to bring home an iPhone 7 prior to the actual launch day.
Customers can start reserving their iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus via www.globe.com.ph/iPhone7. They are available through the Globe myLifestyle plans that already come with unlimited texts and calls to Globe/TM, mobile data and free access to content such as Netflix, Disney Channel Apps, HOOQ, and NBA, among others.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are considered as the best, most advanced iPhone ever, featuring an all-new advanced camera system, dust and water resistant design, stereo speaker system and the A10 Fusion chip which is the most powerful chip on any smartphone while delivering the best battery life ever in an iPhone.
Postpaid customers can enjoy a more seamless mobile browsing as Globe continues to expand its Long Term Evolution (LTE) footprint and migrate its customers to the LTE network. For postpaid customers who have yet to switch to LTE, they will receive their new LTE SIMs together with the new iPhone 7. The SIMs are free of charge and still carry their current mobile number.
More customers can still take part in creating a Globe of good even without renewing postpad plans. To help contribute to the Global Filipino Schools program, text GFS to 2158-0437 (GFS) and your contribution will be charged to your prepaid load or postpaid bill.
