Live More with SmartNet
April 16th, 2012
You might have heard of SmartNet via Twitter or from Smart Subscribers. You might be wondering what it is and how it works. You’ve seen celebrities, bloggers and friends rave about the service. You’re already familiar with the name of the service, SmartNet, but you want to know more.
With this in mind, I decided to write a blog post about the features of SmartNet. I’ve written about SmartNet before when Smart launched Netphone 701 and Samsung Galaxy Y Netphone edition. I thought I shared enough but I guess SmartNet deserves to have a blog post here in HeaRty’s Haven on its own.
I’ve been using SmartNet on my Netphone 701 for several months now. It serves as my backup when my data plan fails on me. I never have to worry about losing internet connection because with SmartNet, we get to access Facebook, Twitter and SmartNet for free! Yes, that is why I agree with Smart’s tagline: Live More. We live more if we have SmartNet. You don’t even have to worry if you’re using postpaid or prepaid. As long as you’re using a Smart SIM, you can have SmartNet!
SmartNet used to be available only on Smart Netphones like Netphone 701 and Samsung Galaxy Y. But now, with the newly released Android application, you can have SmartNet on any of your Android-powered device! Isn’t that cool? Install it via Google Play and you’ll be on your way to enjoy the awesome features of SmartNet!
