Remember those days when we were all using the same prepaid service? It was a really nice thing because we could basically text anyone since it was so popular. Nowadays, people are now using the internet as a means to connect with other people. So far, mobile internet is very expensive and out of reach from most people. I know that the incumbent Philippine telcos Globe and Smart are trying their very best to reach a lot of people but it still isn’t enough.
I was so glad to find out that there’s one company trying to really make a dent: Cherry Mobile. They have always made a point to bring out the best combination of a great smartphone experience with a knack for affordability. Last year, they made a partnership with Globe Telecom to start a prepaid service. With the dedication to bring affordable internet, call, and text services to the masses, Cherry Mobile launched Cherry Prepaid!
After a successful launch in Manila, Cherry Prepaid is now showing the love to us Cebuanos by bringing us phone bundles and offers that are exclusive to Cebu! They shared to us the good news at their media event in Café Georg last week and I’m here to show them to you!
Cherry Prepaid Phone Bundles!
Cherry Prepaid is offering three new phone bundles that is EXCLUSIVE to Cebu! Each phone bundle has its corresponding BONUS you can enjoy when you buy a certain amount of load! All phone bundles shown here include the Cherry Prepaid SIM. Here are the phone bundles that they’re offering and the equivalent BONUS:

With all this news that I shared to you, I hope that you consider going for Cherry Prepaid! I believe in the vision that Cherry Mobile CEO Maynard S. Ngu set out to accomplish.
“As Cherry Mobile finally reaches our dream of valuing everyone’s lifestyle through providing the best of mobile experience, we cannot help but dream some more. We will, in every way possible, continue to provide real and affordable innovation that will greatly benefit the majority, and not just the few,” he said.
If you want a prepaid service that gives you the best bang for your buck, then go with Cherry Prepaid! As they say, when you are part of the service, you are known as “Ka-Cher”! Hehehe. It sounds cheesy, but it works for them!
