jco they are the same but getting a new plan versus recontracting would entail the following differences:
Example: for Plan 1799, with gadget iPhone 6 for 24 months contract
1. New plan - cash out = advance MRF + gadget cash out = P1799 + P10,800 = P12,599 you have to pay outright cash or via credit card
2. Recontracting (when existing contract already expired or is 1 month more to go) - cash out = gadget cash out = P10,800 to be paid cash, via credit card or charge to bill when available
3. Recontracting (existing contract has more than 1 month remaining) - cash out = pretermination fee + gadget cash out. In this case, pretermination fee needs to be settled first.
wala pong pag kakaiba ang cash out and gadget cash out..
