At last, the long wait is over! Globe Telecom finally launched the highly-coveted iPhone 4 in the Philippines today, September 24, together with a series of customizable data plans for iPhone customers. We’ve already blogged about the iPhone 4 data plans and how the plan you get affects the cost of the unit. Basically, the 16GB phone costs P37,499 but is free with a Plan 3799. The 32GB unit is priced at P43,699 but is free with a Plan 5000.
Unless you were able to register online at the Globe website, you might have a hard time getting your hands on a unit right now.
