Facebook is running this campaign to let you install the latest Facebook Java mobile app and this can be done to any phone that can run Java applications.
To make the deal much better, you can get up to 90 days of free access from Globe or Smart. Yes you read that correctly. Globe and Smart let you download and use the Facebook mobile application for up to 90 days without paying for data.
The app includes all the core features of Facebook like account creation, news feed, photo upload, friend finder and more.
You don’t need to own a smartphone running iOS or Android because the Facebook application can be installed to almost any phone. This can run on 2,500 low-cost phone like series 40 Nokia models, MyPhone and Cherry mobile.
The only catch here is what will happen after 90 days — so you have to make a mental reminder or a calendar note that this will incur cost after the promo period.
For Globe you can use it for up to 90 days starting from August 1 to October 31, 2011. For Smart the promo is a bit shorter. It is only free to download and use until October 14, 2011 according to their website.
You’ve been informed so don’t get carried away.
To get access to free Facebook mobile just go to facebook.com/mobile/ and put your number. You’ll be asked to add your number on your profile so be careful if you do not want to share it to all your contacts. You will receive a message with a confirmation code then you will need to activate your mobile account at facebook.com with the confirmation code.
Alternatively you can also get the Facebook app by sending FB to 2910 for Globe and 211 for Smart.
For the list of support phones, Smart has put up a list of compatible phones to set the expectation straight.
