SMART GPRS Settings

If you’re staying in the Philippines, there’s a chance that you’re a Smart subscriber – like me. Now this post is about setting up your phone’s internet capabilities.

Via SMS

To configure your phone’s GPRS settings, send a message to 211 containing the text SET. You’ll then receive 2 messages. The first would be an advisory that you’ll be receiving the proper settings together with the PIN and instructions on how to save it. Typically, the PIN is 1234 but it’d be good if you read the message just to be sure.
Next, you’ll receive  the GPRS settings for WAP browsing. It’ll ask you to ‘Save’ or ‘Deny’ the settings and whether to ‘Replace’ your existing one. Be sure to choose ‘Replace’ because sometimes there are changes – IP address for example – which might cause you not to be able to connect to the internet.

Via Web

You can also configure your phone through the my.Smart portal.  Register and log-in to my.Smart. Note that registration is FREE. Once logged-in, link your Smart mobile number to your my.Smart account. Once linked, click the “Manage” option beside the account you want to have the settings activated. Select SERVICES from the left menu. Click MMS/GPRS/3G Activation to activate service. Then, select your respective phone model from the dropdown list and Smart will send the settings to your phone via SMS.

Configure Manually

Configuring your phone’s internet settings could be a bit tricky. But if the above means don’t work, you’re left with no options but this. 😀
