Why Smartphones can be Dumbphones

Nowadays there are more smartphones available in the market, but not all user use it in the smartest way due to some reasons. We do know that smartphone can now do more thing compare to old age just-for-dialing-phone. Not only we can listen to the music with great sound system and play games, we can also surf the internet for Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, BBM(BlackBerryMessenger), Youtube and most importantly is the Push-email. But surfing the internet is expensive if you are not using any smart plan.

Smartphone is a dumbphone when dumb people using it only for call/receive call. I've seen some people who using smartphone (eg. iPhone, BlackBerry) only to receive call, and that's all they do with a smartphone. What a waste?!

Smartphone is also useless when it is without application. Imagine BlackBerry without BBM(BlackBeryMessenger). But even if it have, without a good internet mobile service provider, we can't surf the internet frequently because it will cost us a bomb!

Sometimes smartphone become a dumbphone when it get hang easily. It happen on certain TouchScreen mobile phone, but not on BlackBerry =)

Previously I had a chance to try the BlackBerry Curve 8520 that come with DiGi Smart Plan, it make the smartphone even smarter with the great internet coverage.

The internet is always available and that's why I can receive live update from Facebook, Twitter and also email. I can reply my friend instantly at anywhere without need to look for a PC/Laptop with internet. Here is a review of BlackBerry Curve 8520 too.

If you're not calling so much, no worries! You only pay how much you use! No hidden charges.

This is why I like smartphone but only when it comes with a good telco like DiGi's Smart Plan. Without a Smart Plan, my smartphone will only become a normal or even a dumbphone for the rest of my life. (Rm58/month is for previous promotion)

RM68/month would means it is only RM2++ per day for the unlimited internet access through your mobile!

Now DiGi is offering new BlackBerry smartphone that comes with DiGi Smart Plan. When using BlackBerry Bold 9700 you will able to experience faster internet speed (3G HSPDA) compared to BlackBerry Curve 8520 (EDGE connection). This means shorter streaming time when watching youtube right?

Come on guys, make good use of your smartphone by getting DiGi Smart Plan and release the Twitt Bird and Facebook alive! Now you can see the Twitt bird flying with freedom in the sky =D

Make your YouTube alive too! Surf smart(RM68/month), Call Smart(No minimum call usage), Safe Smart(100% Rebate) and Roam Smart(RM36/day) with DiGi Smart Plan! You can't get cheaper smart plan from other telco already.

Talking about Roam SMART, how I wish I own the smartphone that comes with DiGi Smart Plan. I would have able to TwittPict the picture below instantly when I saw this during my Phuket trip in Thailand~!
