    Is there a text command to limit cellular data consumption to my monthly allocation?

    Globe has it through "SurfAlert". What is the equivalent to Smart?

    Smart didn't limit my data but increased it to 60GB from my 30GB monthly allocation.

    That is well and good.

    I am asking for the text command to stop my Smart postpaid data once I hit my monthly limit.

    SMART subscriber here. Anyone having problem with sending sms or calling when you're connected to LTE or VoWifi? I just observed I need to turn off/on Airplane mode to be able to send one or I have to be completely disconnected to the internet to be able to send sms


    UPDATE:
    I had a chat with Apple Support a few minutes ago just to get more troubleshooting steps in case I missed any, but I already did what the agent suggested. After further troubleshooting one of which by placing my sim to another iPhone 7, i can send the sms. But when my Pro Max connects to VoWIFI then I cannot send any sms. If I turn off wifi and on again, as long as it's not VoWIFI I can send, once it connects to VoWIFI I can no longer connect.

    The Agent I spoke with said that there is a "misalignment" with my account that may have caused the issue. I am still on the phone will update further in a bit.

    Try asking Smart to reprovision or realign VoWiFi on your account.

    Smart’s holding a mother’s day sale and was able to snatch an iPhone X 256GB Bnew for Plan 999. — Only 4,700 cash out and 2 years contract.

    Mine’s already approved as per order status page but payment request hasn’t been emailed to me yet so I can’t pay the cash out using my card. I’m itching on locking it in. It’s really a great deal if @ 28,700 total contract price.

    Hello, yes this is exactly the problem :(

    All this time since VoWiFi was introduced, I was struggling to send or call and not sure what the problem was, finally the last agent I spoke with fixed the problem.

    For those who got their iPhones via Smart, is the esim slot open line or locked to smart?

    iPhone sim slots can’t be “partially” unlocked/locked. If you have a Smart iPhone, then the esim is also locked.

    Ohh thanks. I was thinking of getting a iPhone with smart then have my globe postpaid on the e-sim slot.

    You’re going to need an unlocked iPhone for that setup.
