    @peppersauce I haven't seen a Smart BRO nano sim yet. But there's a Smart Prepaid nano sim. That's what I use with our iPad.

    there's a SMARTBRO prepaid nanosim and a regular SMART prepaid LTE nanosim both works on iPad. the only difference is the SMARTBRO sim is for data use only.

    Anyone on Smart's LTE 3500 plan? For P3,500 you get 21GB/month data with each additional GB costing a tad extra. It comes with a free USB LTE stick or you pay for a MiFi-type device. ​

    Yup! I'm hoping it's not an April Fools joke. That would just be too cruel.

    putting a smart bro sim on any mobile phone is pretty much same as using any other sim.

    Lately I have issues with my connection, Im using a Smart issued pocket wifI. One Sim was enrolled in the 30 day LTE bucket and about two weeks in I could not connect to LTE, switching to 3G only would allow me to connect (pocket wifi would show "connected") but going to any site would bring me back to the pocket wifi login screen. After lots of troubleshooting I finally called Smart and they elevated the issue to their technical. After a day the connection was fixed. A week later it happened again, called Smart and again it was fixed. However the connection would only work for a few hours. So I ended up calling Smart 4 times over the last week of the bucket validity for them to get the connection working. All this time there is no explanation why its happening.


    I was thinking it could be my sim so I used another sim and enroled in a 7 day LTE bucket. On day 4 the same thing happened, called Smart and again it was fixed after my call and worked until the bucket expired.


    Anyone experience the same issue?
