    Ok smart has changed the setup on the BB here. I have BB Torch 9800. According to how smart operate they have diffrent settings and diffrent menu operations. I have a UK 9800 and when I used smart i lost my apps the mail was upgraded to version that deos not work on my phone (old version).

    I had use my P.C and restore the phone. In the UK we pay 50 USD a month for all BB services and its just plug and play. Here is a total nightmare with smart. I’ve had it working for one day only. I’m not so inpressed with how they have it setup.

  4. Dan Butler

    I put my UK sim card back in, wiped the phone and started again by doing the following:

    Register the smart sim (prepaid) on smart web site

    Set up smart email address & password

    Put 1200 peso of credit on phone

    Sent text to 211 for SET 3G

    Sent txt to 2207 with BB WEEK

    Waited 5 minutes

    Typed alt LGLG

    Turned BB off and removed batt – 10 secounds

    Turn it on again

    I’m still working on it to find a solution ! Service books ok. I was working but now its not. Why has smart made this so difficult unlike the rest of work it just so easy to setup.

  5. Dan Butler

    Can I just add that if you get a message to upgrade and you phone is from overseas dont do it. I had all these problems since the upgrade.

  6. Dan Butler

    at last i have it working after spending maybe 6 hours going back and forth. I think its ok but SMART has issues they need to fix and fix fast.

    SMART deos not like @live email address ? I have no idea i just will not register on the phone were as gmail will

    The mail icon will appear once you get a gmail account.

    the smart email address and icon on the home screen. still working on it why it deos not apear could be becoz im locked out of my account for 24 hours. I have no idea its a little strange

  7. Dan Butler

    Here is so more info: this page really had me lost as I had never seen it before.

    When in your BB and you go to your setup and go email you see a screen asking for username and password.

    This is the same info as when you registered your BB on smart.

    My BB is now working 100%. Feel free to ask me for help I do my best to sort you out.

    I have also done in APN:

    Maps: Working in Manila – YES

  11. @dan: can you help me with this. I have the same problem with you before. I’m asking if in the wizard set-up in the email section of your phone, does it need to coincide with the email and password that you have registered in the smart BIS? Please answer. Thank you

  12. First of all smart customer service personnel are sucks! they do not know what they are doing they need 10 years of training before they can familiarize their service..advise: dont offer anything that you do not know how to manage if the problem occurs.

    I’ll be in the Phil. for a 3-week vacation and I’m planning to get either Globe’s or Smart’s plans. Does anyone know if Twitter is included in the package?

  14. Any updates on Smart BB Prepaid issues? I’m still having the same issues. Cannot access bbm, other messengers, fb and twitter.

    i was in the philippines for 3 weeks and everything worked on my fone with smart. i have a bb 8520 and Torch and the both worked all bb services too . this was from March 7th to march 25 , 2010. holla at me at bb pin 212eef57

  16. i got BB 8900 i used overseas.
    when i got home during vacation last Nov 2010, i tried Smart prepaid BB WEEK. Activation was very quick and email setup was easier and faster than the overseas. they said browsing is not free but i tried finishing my extra load and then do wap browsing and , walla, it was ok. speed was also at par as my overseas BB experience. overall, Smart BB is not bad at all.
    to all those with problems on BB, the solution there is to upgrade your BB OS.

    when you buy it, the BB (except Torch) have OS 4.x and it will cause problems with all networking sites because their apps are updated to latest OS but not your own. So if you have laptop, you can download latest OS for your device. Install in your laptop and upgrade.

    How to upgrade:
    (Assuming you downloaded the latest OS, i downloaded mine from Rogers Wireless Canada or Orange UK, whoever has the latest. The filenme readds like this: 8900M_PBr5.0.0_rel1626_PL5.2.0.96_A5.0.0.900_Rogers_Wireless_Inc.exe. Maybe Smart has OS upgrade site also)
    1. Install the file in your PC or laptopn. Reboot if you like. This OS upgrade is different from the BB desktop Manager.
    2. Connect your BB to the PC or laptop. Does not matter if you choose Y or N to the mediacard challenge.
    3. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. Look for the vendor.xml and delete it. Look for Loader.exe. Double-click Loader.exe
    4. Click Next. Then Next. On the next menu, uncheck the other languages except English. Skip the Make sure you check the DOD root, MIME. Skip the TTY and Financial Terms. You can check Yahoo Messenger, Facebook, and Appworld.
    5. Click Next. Then Next.
    6. Relax for 30 minutes….

    After upgrad is done and EDGE/GPRS has come back, check your FB, YM, Twitter, MySpace and what-have-you to update your login/password. Check your BBM also to accept the conditions.

    I guaranty your woes will disappear.

    btw, only 2 version and one of them is Torch that has BB OS 6. the rest of us will be happy with the ver 5.x

    Hope this helps.

  17. Great post made here. One thing I would really like to say is most professional fields consider the Bachelors Degree as the entry level requirement for an online college diploma. Though Associate Certifications are a great way to start out, completing your current Bachelors presents you with many doors to various occupations, there are numerous internet Bachelor Course Programs available from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions provide Online editions of their college diplomas but often for a substantially higher fee than the companies that specialize in online college degree plans.

    Hi guys, I’m planning to get a bold 9700 and definitely new in blackberry. Can someone help me decide on which BIS I’ll get? Which is better sun or smart? I’m already a postpaid subscriber in Globe and doesn’t want to give up my unit for Globe since most of my calls are coming from Globe. And most definitely I can’t have 2 globe numbers. So I have to get at least a sun or a smart for my BB. Please help. thanks so much! :)

    How fast are your download speed when using your BB in Phone As Modem mode? Under Globe, I get around 25 kbps download speed.

    hi, how can i use FB and twitter using BB torch 9810? pls reply asap! i registered alredi but im confused cause i cant use fb or twitter.. how will i know if im available to use both? not like GLOBE meron indication kung nalaman mo na kung pwede ka na makafb or twitter..

  22. one thing that has not been mentioned that is very important to remember when trying to avail blackberry services and internet through Smart in the Philippines.. when you avail services then you take your sim card out, and put it back in, your services are deleted and your sim card goes back to original settings.. this is according to someone i talked to on the phone who has 10 years of experience selling and equipping people in the Philippines with blackberry services…
