*The alias GoSURF is also accepted, ie. GoSURF 99

**200MB allows you to stream music for about 3 hours a day.

Keep in mind that your Spotify freebie expires together with your GoSURF plan. This means that free access to Spotify ends when your GoSURF subscription expires.

If you're a Postpaid customer, however, you can get 3 months free Spotify Premium as long as you're registered to GoSURF. If you unsubscribe from GoSURF, your Spotify Premium subscription also ends. The 3-month free trial period starts from the time your register to GoSURF.

At the end of the 3- month free trial period, your free Spotify Premium will auto renew to the Spotify stand-alone promo (Spotify only) worth P129 for one month. You will be notified before the end of your free trial to remind you that Spotify will auto renew to the chargeable promo P129/30 days unless you unsubscribe.

Note: You must unsubscribe from Spotify before the end of the trial period if you don't want to pay for the Spotify plan by texting SPOTIFY STOP to 8080.

I registered to GoSURF with free Spotify. What do I do next to enjoy the free Spotify service?

a. First check if you have a device capable of downloading Spotify. Spotify is available for Android, iOS, Windows 8 and BlackBerry 7 users.

b. Next, download the app on m.spotify.com/download or visit your native app store (Google Play, App Store) to download the app. Download of the app will be charged against your GoSURF subscription, only streaming of music using the app is free. To save on your MB, you may download the app using WiFi.

c. Open the app and sign up for an account

d. If you already have an account, just enter your username and password then log in

e. Enjoy! You can now enjoy all the music that you want for free.

I registered to GoSURF with free Spotify Premium but forgot to activate my Premium trial, what will happen?

Even if you don't get to activate your Premium trial, you can still stream music on Spotify for free; you just won't experience the cool and nice features of Spotify Premium. These are:

Offline Mode. You can "download" playlists and songs on your app so you can listen even without a mobile internet or WiFi connection.

Ad-Free. No ads!

Play songs On Demand. Listen to a particular song, album or artist. Spotify Basic only allows you to listen on Shuffle Mode.

Can I activate my Premium trial at a later date?

You can always activate your Premium account even at a later date. The only implication is that your free access to Spotify would be cut shorter as it expires together with your GoSURF subscription. After the GoSURF expiry, you can continue to stream music on Spotify but regular browsing rates will apply: P2/MB (Postpaid) or P5/15 minutes (Prepaid).

I love Spotify so much that I used up my Spotify MB allocation. What happens now when I stream music?

Once you consume the MB allocation for Spotify, music streaming will be charged against your GoSURF subscription (it will use up your GoSURF MB).

If you no longer have remaining GoSURF MB, regular browsing rates will apply for music streaming: P2/MB (Postpaid) or P5/15 minutes (Prepaid).

What if I want to stream music but I don't like to use up my GoSURF MB allocation?

If you want to stream music without using up your GoSURF or paying default rates, register to the standalone Spotify Premium promo. The standalone Spotify Premium promo gives you Premium subscription plus MB of data for music streaming.

What are the available stand-alone Spotify Premium Plans?

The standalone Spotify Premium promo gives you Premium subscription plus MB of data for music streaming. Here are the available standalone Spotify Premium plans:

Note: Spotify 299 and 129 auto renews every month for Postpaid customers.

If you are on a Postpaid GoSURF 30-day plan with Spotify Premium, you cannot purchase a standalone Spotify Premium plan while you are registered to GoSURF. You can only avail of the non-30 day plans.

I am a GoSURF/Spotify Premium customer using the desktop client of Spotify. There are a lot of features on the desktop client, are all these free to use too?

No, only music streaming is free on the desktop client of Spotify. Using the 3rd party apps within the desktop client will be chargeable against your GoSURF subscription (uses up your MB) or, if you no longer have GoSURF MB, regular browsing rates will apply.

Highlighted in red are sections of the desktop client NOT covered by free Spotify access.

What happens to Spotify after the promo duration?

You can continue enjoying music streaming via Spotify by registering to the Spotify Premium promo. By registering to the promo, you get subscription to Spotify Premium and bulk MB of data for music streaming. You can also still enjoy Spotify Basic, but data usage will be charged regular browsing rates unless you're registered to a mobile data promo.

If you're a Postpaid GoSURF customer on GoSURF299 and up, don't worry, you get to enjoy free Premium trial for 3 months from the time of your registration to GoSURF.
