    Does Smartbro work in the US?

      @Dave Lucas I don’t think Smart Bro will work in the US because it is sim locked to Smart Philippines. The modem is a ZTE M627 dongle and might work in the US if you unlock it, replace it with a different sim that works in the US and configure the dongle software installed in the PC. I read in some forum that you can unlock it and replace it with other local network like Globe Tatoo.

    Please do tell if there is unlimited na for smart. Globe is ok. But if you surf 24/7 then the amount would be 14,480

      @danny I think there is already an unli-surf for Smart but your cell phone should be 3G capable. I was also waiting for Smart Bro to have an unlimited surfing like the Smart unli-surf but up to now there isn’t any. Just check the Smart website (www.smart.com.ph) for details.

    Thanks, I guess I’ll stick with Globe for the mean time. Their connection is pretty decent naman but costly

    I was hoping Smart Bro will release a kind of Unlimited Surfing for let’s say 50 Pesos for 24 hours? LIKE other broadband..

      @ weztlee69 I think Smartbro has a promo for unli surf. 200 pesos for 5 days. Check Smart cellular website for details.

    I wanted to install Smart Bro Share It in the past but when I was searching the Web for reviews about Smart Bro, I found this link: The reason behind SmartBro’s lockin period. It really opened my eyes. That’s why I hope to spread this link so that others might also see. I hope you will spread it too.

    I tried Smart Bro here in Cainta/Pasig and the connection was NIL. 11 Kbps which fluctuates down to 0 Kbps , websites won’t load. Better check if their signal is good in your area before buying and google feedback on SmartBro Prepaid Broadband before buying.

      @kitkat What a coincidence. My PLDT DSL is having trouble so I’m using a smartbro now. Signal is good but the extra expense of using it is not.

    Does anyone know where the documentation online to let us know how long until the Smartbro simcard will expire? I’ve been gone from PH for 8-9 months and it doesn’t seem to work anymore :(

      @GotCebu The sim will expire if you will not load it. But for the meantime you can insert your smartbro sim on your cellphone and use it for text messaging so it will not expire. It works just like an ordinary sim but you won’t be able to use it for calling, only text.

    Thanks Manual :) But if already expired, is there anyway I can buy new SmartBro sim, only the sim, to put into my usb casing? I’d hate to have to buy a whole new SmartBro setup (I already have 3 right now)

      @GotCebu Yes you can buy it on Smart Business Centers or stores selling cellphone sim card. I think it is available nationwide.

      @xcu No you can’t use it on a mobile phone. Why not use smart buddy?
