Capture and share your amazing moments anytime, anywhere with FREE Instagram from Smart

[08 July 2015] What would life look like without Instagram? A little less pretty, maybe. A little bit duller, without the famous filters that have made our photographs look chic, stylized, and edgy. And perhaps a lot less interesting, without the chance to take a quick look into the lives of the ones we love, all from the palm of our hands.

Instagram’s unique square-sized photos have become virtual windows into the lives of everyone, everywhere—from the things your favorite celebrities do on their down time, to the beautiful arts and crafts produced by your college blockmate, and even the cute and funny antics of your best friend’s dog, aptly hashtagged #dogstagram.

This is the reason why Smart Communications (Smart), the undisputed leader in mobile, is giving all of its subscribers nationwide a chance to keep tabs with their Instagram wants and faves through its FREE Instagram offer, now available along with the company’s top prepaid and postpaid promos for users.

“More than just connecting, Instagram has allowed its users to give their friends and families a peek into the things and people they love the most—from the most vivid details of their daily lives and work, to the most exciting things that they are currently passionate about,” explains Ariel P. Fermin, Executive Vice President and Consumer Business Group Head at Smart.

“It’s more than just ‘sharing’, ‘liking’ or ‘commenting’—Instagram has given Filipinos the chance to preserve their precious memories in visual form, and Smart is proud to give them access to all of these anytime, everywhere through our innovative mobile services,” Fermin adds.

Meaningful innovations

Whenever they subscribe to a prepaid offer or postpaid plan from Smart, subscribers will instantly be able to gain FREE access to Instagram on their phones without having to worry about additional data charges when they do so.

Prepaid subscribers will be able to enjoy free Instagram browsing and posting for up to 30MB per day with any popular prepaid promos that include All Text 20, Unli Call & Text 30, All in 99 and Mega 250, among many others. 

Users who subscribe to any of Smart’s Surf Plus Plans, meanwhile, will instantly be able to enjoy the Free Instagram offer as part of their freebie app bundle for 30 days.

With FREE Instagram access from Smart, it’s easier to get arts and craft inspiration from @popjunklove and @craftmnl, follow the travel adventures of @renanbarco and @thelakwatsero, get style and grooming tips from @itscamilleco and @davidguison, and take a peek into the life behind the scenes with @annecurtissmith, @gretchenbarretto, and @solennheussaff, among many other pursuits.

This is yet another way for Smart to let its subscribers experience the ‘Smart Life,’ by providing them with digital services and meaningful innovations that allow them to enjoy entertainment everywhere. Aside from its FREE Instagram offer, subscribers can enjoy a vast world of entertainment on their Smart phones through iflix, FOX, SPINNR, YouTube, and other game-changing services.
