The Smart and TNT offer the Pasaload feature to their respective postpaid and prepaid subscribers. In this post, I will teach you how to pasaload to Smart and TNT networks in the Philippines easily.
What is Pasaload in Smart and TNT?
It is a feature that allows you to transfer electronic load credits from your Smart Prepaid/Postpaid to a TNT mobile phone number or vice versa. The word “Pasaload” comes from the phrase “Pass A Load” which simply means transferring a portion of your cellular load credits with anyone. To activate this feature you need to use your Smart or TNT mobile phone to send a text message with a set of SMS codes in them. Alternatively, you can use the GigaLife App.
Both Smart and TNT use the term “Pasaload,” while other network uses a different term when transferring regular loads credits and promos to their fellow subscribers.
Both postpaid and prepaid mobile phone users can transfer load. When the postpaid user does the Pasaload, the amount is charged to their monthly bill. If the prepaid user will do the load transfer, it will be deducted from their current regular load balance.
All the telecom networks in the Philippines has this feature. I think the main reason is to help subscribers with zero load balance to receive a load during rough times when there is no reloading station near their area. This feature will help subscribers to stay connected with friends, relatives, and members of the family, worry-free.
How to Pasaload in Smart and TNT using SMS in 2 Easy Ways
There are two simple ways to perform the Pasaload with Smart and TNT via text messaging. Both postpaid and prepaid subscribers have a similar process. Perhaps, the only difference is the amount limit that the two can transfer.
Prepaid users can do Pasaload as long as they have enough balance to cover the service fee and shared load value. On the other hand, postpaid users have a limit of 300 pesos and 500 pesos respectively. This depends on the latter’s monthly service fee. The good part is the pasaload limit refreshes every first day of the month.
The postpaid subscriber under the Freedom Plan is not allowed to do Pasaload transactions.
Anyway, with both the Smart and TNT, you do not need to register and also do not have to memorize any PIN code. You type the recipient’s cellphone number with your preferred amount and then send it, that’s all!
Option 1: On your mobile device open your SMS icon. Type in PASALOAD <space> Receiver’s Mobile Phone Number <space> Amount. Then send it to 808.
For example, PASALOAD 09199876543 200, send it to 808
Option 2: On your Text message icon. Type in the Receiver’s Mobile Number <space> Amount, then send it to 808.
You will then receive a confirmation text message. Reply with a “YES” or “NO” depending on your objective.
For example, 09199876543 200, send it to 808
Afterward, you will receive a pasaload successful notification text message.

Smart, and TNT Pasaload Denominations and Validity
When you transfer a prepaid load to your fellow subscribers, it comes with an expiration date. Make sure to use the load credits within that period to avoid issues or forfeit of the latter. The validity period has ranged from 3 days to up to 60 days depending on the transferred amount.
For example, the minimum denomination is between 2 pesos to 10 pesos. It comes with a validity of 3 days. The maximum denomination is 200 pesos which has a validity of 60 days. So, in general, as the amount of pasaload goes higher the number of validity days also increases.
- Php 2, Php 5, Php 10 – 3 days validity
- Php 15, Php 20, Php 30 – 15 days validity
- Php 60, Php 100 – 30 days validity
- Php 200 – 60 days validity
How much is Pasaload Service Fee in Smart or TNT?
Every time you perform a pasaload transaction, your telco network will charge you a 1 peso SMS service fee plus the transferred amount.
If you are a postpaid user, the telco will charge the amount to your account. This is on top of your monthly bill.
On the other hand, if you are a prepaid user, the 1 peso plus the shared amount is deducted from your regular load. This again depends on your telco provider.
As a suggestion, make sure that you become efficient when utilizing the Pasaload feature from Smart or TNT to avoid unnecessary charges.
