Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) is encouraging young barkadas to jump in to the country’s most reliable network through the Jump In SIM – a product designed to let them stay connected with each other without hurting their pockets.

The SIM comes with student-friendly load packages. Jump All Out 15 allows unlimited texting to all networks, 30 minutes of calls to five friends on the Smart, Talk ‘N Text, and Sun networks, and the use of 10 MB of data for one whole day -- all for only P15.

At the same price, Jump All Text 15 offers unlimited texts to all networks for two days.

Best of all, students can get the Jump In SIM for FREE after just loading up P15 in consumable airtime credits.

“Students are among the top users of mobile technology. This is why Smart developed a product exclusively for them. We took into consideration their lifestyle and budget to provide the perfect SIM that will let them build and enrich their relationships without draining their allowance,” said Emmanuel Lorenzana, Smart executive vice president and head of wireless consumer division.

“With Smart’s superior voice, SMS, and data services, students will be able to share their Jump In moments with friends without worrying about blocked calls, unsent text messages, and poor Internet connection,” he added.

Smart brings Jump In to schools

To make it easier and more enjoyable for students to avail themselves of the Jump In SIM, Smart has been visiting schools all over the country, with fun activities and prizes.

Smart’s first stop was San Sebastian College-Recoletos in Manila. Students had a blast posing with their friends at the photo booth and playing Kinect in Smart’s Jump In booth. They also received cool rewards such as movie passes and Starbucks gift certificates after getting  Jump In SIMs, loading airtime credits, or tweeting about their Jump In experience.

Among those who were happy about their barkada’s new Jump In SIMs was tourism management freshman Jovie Floresta. “The offers are so good, and I like how our cellphone numbers are almost the same. It’s really for the barkada,” he said.

“I already know that Smart is a network that won’t let us down. With the Jump In SIM, it’s going to be easier to get the guys together for a project. Now that we don’t need to worry about communicating with each other, we have more time to ‘Live More,’” he added.

Smart’s Jump In Caravan has already been to Our Lady of Fatima University in Valenzuela, Xavier University in Cagayan de Oro, Angeles University in Pampanga, San Beda College in Manila, and University of Pangasinan. This week, it will be in Southwestern University in Cebu, University of Baguio, and University of the Philippines Visayas.

Schools, orgs can benefit too

Smart has special gifts in store for schools and student organizations that will record a significant number of Jump In SIM activations. A thousand student activations will get a school P10,000, while 2,000 activations will get a school P20,000.

Meanwhile, the student organization with the highest number of member activations by the end of the Smart Jump In Caravan’s visit will receive one laptop or a group gimmick worth P15,000 from Smart.

Students may visit<> to learn which schools are included in the caravan. There they can also watch Smart’s Jump In video featuring Filipino global superstars and Jessica Sanchez.

Students whose schools are not yet included in the caravan may get the Jump In SIM from any of the 100 Smart Stores nationwide. [END]
