Smart also announced through Twitter on how subscribers can get free cellphone credits and ask for load in case of emergency. Here are the steps on how to avail.


Smart will continue to work with government units as well as partners in the private sector to provide relief and support to those affected by Typhoon Maring.

Due to network preparations, upgrade and planning, Smart network remains resilient and strong in the face of the adverse weather conditions. Minor interruptions were due to prolonged commercial power interruptions in flooded areas but these are being restored immediately as power resumes.

Given the emergency situation, Sun Cellular subscribers have also been allowed to roam in Smart's network parts of North and Central Luzon to provide them access to mobile phone services.
