Anyone noticed Sun domestic data roaming on Smart?

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: October 9, 2012

We received a couple of reports from Sun subscribers that they were able to connect to the Smart's 3G network and able to activate and use their mobile internet. One subscriber emailed telling us that they've been able to hook up to Smart's 3G and use mobile internet on their phone. Another one texted telling us the same but it seems the roaming is no longer working. It's possible Sun is doing a field test for domestic roaming with Smart the same way they did that voice/SMS roaming back in March.

Smart now offers Prepaid Data Roaming for Php500/day

Relevance: 91%      Posted on: October 3, 2014

Smart has just enabled international data roaming for prepaid subscribers with unlimited daily mobile internet access for only Php500 per day. It has taken a long time for Smart to offer this to 99% of its subscribers so we believe its prepaid subscribers will be glad to know they can use data romaing abroad. The prepaid data roaming is currently limited to a few countries: Hong Kong (Hutchison) Indonesia (Indosat) Japan (NTT DoCoMo) Macau (Hutchison) Malaysia (DiGi, CelCom) Singapore (Starhub) South Korea (KTF) Taiwan (FET) Thailand (True Move) Vietnam (Vinaphone) To activate prepaid data roaming: 1) Make sure to have…

Sun Cellular gets domestic roaming with Smart

Relevance: 86%      Posted on: March 13, 2012

We earlier reported that Sun Cellular was riding on Smart's network to expand its coverage in certain areas and we've also asked readers to confirm this. It looks like Sun has already verified this by connecting to Smart via domestic roaming. We're all familiar with international roaming and have the impression that roaming between networks is very expensive. But in this case, I believe Sun is getting a free ride on Smart's vast network (considering they both belong under the PLDT Group). TechLokal confirms this move by Sun (via Sun Cellular VP for CRM Reuben Pangan): We have expanded our…

Relevance: 80%      Posted on: February 27, 2012

Our February 12 story regarding Vodafone Philippines setting up local operations might not hold water in a recent announcement by Smart about a roaming partnership. Apparently, Vodafone representatives were in the Philippines to Smart Smart executives on key services and practices: The training sessions, held from February 14 to 16, 2012, were conducted by Vodafone's online team, and had Smart's senior management and online customer management team, among others, as participants. The social media accounts of Vodafone Philippines on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube were created sometime in February 12, 2012. This coincide with the preparation of the training. So it…

Globe, Smart changes load sharing to combat text scams

Relevance: 62%      Posted on: September 21, 2014

Due to rampant incidents of load sharing scams, both Smart and Globe have changed the way they operate sharing of eLoads. Majority of text scams deceive subscribers into claiming free credits but inputting and replying to specific SMS queries. Globe started making restrictions in their Share-a-Load services several weeks ago (first time we experienced this was September 1). The new scheme requires confirmation that a load is being shared and requires another affirmative answer to validate it. Globe has also limited the amount of sharing to just Php300 and has removed the Php500 option (which is the usual and maximum…

Unlimited Int’l Data Roaming with Globe

Relevance: 56%      Posted on: January 14, 2011

International data roaming has become one of the most dreaded activity when traveling abroad. I've been bitten with one for a smacking Php25,000 bill after an overnight stay in Singapore a couple of years back. And I only used up about 40+MB of bandwidth during that 24-hour stay. Since then, I have never attempted to activate data roaming when on trips. Looks like I'll be tempted again this time now that Globe and Bridge Alliance has partnered to offer Bridge DataRoamUnlimited. Rates are as follows: $10 for 24 hours $27 for 3 days $40 for 5 days That's already pretty…
