    Just wondering if you could possibly put the Sun Broadband Sim (the one inside the Huawei Modem) and insert the sim in our iphones. Would it work? What do i have to do (settings)

    Yes, possible, I inserted by Sun Broadband Sim in my wife's iphone 3G and she does not want to remove it anymore since she has 24/7 internet connection around metro manila:eek:

    I did not modify any settings, as long as it gets 3G or Edge signal, you will have internet on your iphone

    Great! thanks m_ke2 for the quick response. ill try it out later when i reach home. Btw, you mentioned no more change in settings, so i assume its just Plug(insert) and Play and no more APN editing as mentioned in this thread.

    just plug the sim...


    when you plug sun sim, the apn will be automatically blank (on my case) and good to surf.


    apn should be blank or fbband or minternet... but make it blank.

    btw, sun broadband/internet is good for those 3g/s only, as sun's edge is very slow.

    eversince, their csr keeps saying use minternet for phones and fbband/mbband for those sbw...

    on my iphone, its blank.... on my mbp/imac and e220 i use fbband (since it needs to input something in the setting) i believe antz88c had blank on his apn in his macbookpro

    i tried sun, does 3g speed affects the speed in sending mms?
    i heard sun's edge is really slow.

    Has anyone tried the SBW Call and Surf Unlimited plan on their iPhone? :) Tried searching but its producing an error. I'm interested in replacing my Unlimited Visibility plan with this and moving my Globe SIM to a Blackberry.

    Same here, as soon as I sign my contract with company X, company Y & Z are coming up with an exciting (usually) offer which is hard to close your eyes on their offer/s!

    Call & surf by SUN gonna be the last offer of 2009 (I don't think so!) that I'm going to avail.

    Does the SBW Call and Surf Unlimited plan use one sim? Say I insert it in the iphone I'll still be able to receive calls and surf at the same time. Right?


    New at this. I'm giving a globe a deadline to deliver my iphone. If I don;t receive it on time i'll just buy those factory unlocked phones, so I can just use my Sun sim
