According to Captain’s Log:
I’ve tested the SIM in an old Nokia 5110 unit and it worked! No need to pay activation fees and buy expensive custom handsets that look like remote controls. No more locked-in period. It’s PREPAID!

This new product appears to be PLDT’s response to the Bayan Wireless Landline and, from the initial information we’re getting, that the new PLDT product may beat the hell out of Bayan’s offering. PLDT uses Smart’s GSM signals, while Bayan uses the not very popular CDMA system.
This new PLDT offering is great news in more ways than one, and I’m going to tell you why soon.
