Before you find any mobile loading station or ask a friend for a Pasaload to help you out, just letting you know you can borrow load from Smart. Or “utang” in our language. You can borrow from Smart ranging from regular load, text, call, data, or promos so long as you are eligible.
This “utang load” will allow you to have load credits for selected call, text, or data packages. So no more wasting time to do your most important thing to do.
