Introducing: u Mobile!

I was lucky enough to snag an invite to last nights launch of the newest telco in the country: uMobile!

The event was pretty exciting and was "designed" for uMobile's target market (young people between 15 and 35). I was also lucky enough to get a free LG KU 380 -- a 3G cellphone! So, what does uMobile have that the other telco doesn't? They reward subscribers who agrees to read ads and take survey with "points" which can then be used as cellphone "load". Early adopters will also be treated to a Php100 load/month from June 2008 to December 2008! Unlike traditional telcos, uMobile does not sell their SIM cards, they instead screen potential users through their websites, making sure that they are within their target market.

To see some pics of the event, head on over to the berniej korni-kels :)

Each ad gives you only a penny of load. The time and effort it takes you to grab your phone and delete an ad is probably worth more than a penny.
