    If I will use the LTE sim with HSPA+ devices, will I be able to reach at least the 21Mbps speed or it will be capped to 7.2Mbps still?

    The LTE sim should be provisioned for “upto” 42Mbps, right? So thinking of buying just the LTE sim and use it in my Huawei E5331. To follow na lang yung LTE myfi kung meron na sa black market.

    as for droid razr maxx hd that particular phone will not work for smart LTE, I assume that phone is issued by verizon wireless that uses LTE Band 13 @ 700MHz, Smart uses only Band 1 2100MHz, Band 3 1800MHz and Band 3 850MHz so its not compatible.. unless that if purchase a Multiband LTE Capable Phone like the Galaxy S4

    What about Samsung Galaxy Note 4G LTE, will it work on the LTE prepaid sim?

    Does it work with my BlackBerry Z10 – stl100-2

    Prepaid Lte sim being sold by smart are broadband sim meaning,it won’t work on your lte capable handsets. The only phone that will work so far is Xperia z.
    So if you don’t own Xperia z or any lte broadband stick and lte pocket wifi (also ipad 4g)don’t bother buying the smart broadband lte prepaid sim.

    @Det. Wrong info. According to smart, lte sim works to any lte capable device kaya lte sim for lte device. Yun ang sabi ng technical staff ng smart na nakausap ko. I want to try sana kaso, out of stock sila.

    I’m so curious if smart lte prepaid will work on my lg optimus lte2. Guys any feedback if working sya in any lte devices..^_^

    • Owen says:

      the answer is NO. I have an Lg optimus lte2 or F160k. bought a smart lte prepaid sim pero 3g lang ang kaya. found out that sa prepaid lte dapat 2100Mhz and optimus lte 2 has B3 or 1800Mhz lang. pero i havent tried using it sa globe postpaid. 1800Mhz kasi frequency gamit nila.

    will the GALAXY NOTE 2 LTE be compatible with smart Lte sim.. anybody? thanks

  13. jd says:

    Before buying any LTE Capable devices, make sure that it is compatible with our LTE Networks here in the Philippines, Example, If you buy a unlocked iPhone 5 from US.. Sorry that phone will not work with Smart and Globe 4G LTE Network since the Frequency and Bands are not compatible, in the US they use LTE Bands 4 and 17.. It will just work in 3G HSPA+.. In the US they want different LTE Band so that you are tied with one carrier only.. AT&T and Verizon for example…
