[TUTORIAL]How to activate your GPRS/MMS (for all Philippine networks)

Posted by vonne at 9:06 PM
Many of Filipinos still don't know how to activate the GPRS of their phone, so this post will help you guys 100%.
Lets begin..
For Globe Subscribers:

For a complete listing of compatible MMS & GPRS phone handsets — send NOKIA, ERICSSON or SAMSUNG (your handset model) to 2365.
To get your phone’s settings, text GO (handset model) to 2951. Example, GO N3650. (For a list of compatible handsets, refer to #1)

Note: For Nokia 6220, 6600, and 6820, text GO < handset model >,1234 and send to 2951. Make sure to type in the two commas before the 1234 PIN. Regular text messaging charges will apply.
Enter 1234 when asked for PIN to save settings.
Send an MMS message for only Php 5.00 to activate the service.

Note: For prepaid subscribers, please make sure you have credits first before trying to access GPRS/MMS. You won’t be able to use the service if you have zero balance.



For Smart Subscribers:

OTA (over-the air) configuration

a) To activate GPRS *and* MMS
- SET MMS send to 211
- wait for the configuration to be downloaded to your phone (up to 24 hours)
- once downloaded, you will have SmartMMS data account, and SmartMMS WAP profile, and your MMS is configured already to use SmartMMS WAP profile
- you will also receive a confirmation message that your GPRS and MMS have been activated
b) To configure internet access (full access)
- SET INTERNET (handset model) send to 211
- wait for the configuration to be download to your phone, in minutes
- once downloaded, you will have SmartPC data account, and SmartPC WAP Profile
- edit this account to include DNS settings. DNS IP addresses are -202.057.096.003, 202. 057.096.004. you only need one.
c) To configure WAP via GPRS
- SET GPRS T68 send to 211
- wait for the configuration to be download to your phone, in minutes
- once downloaded, you will have SmartGPRS data account, and SmartGPRS WAP Profile. SET THIS AS YOUR DEFAULT PROFILE
d) To configure WAP via CSD (Optional - kasi MAY BAYAD ITO, per minute)
- SET WAP T68 send to 211
- wait for the configuration to be download to your phone, in minutes
- once downloaded, you will have SmartWAP data account, and SmartWAP WAP Profile. SET THIS AS YOUR DEFAULT PROFILE 



I suggest you clear all your existing data accounts and wap profile beforeyou do this. If you follow the instructions in this order, SmartPC will have a CID=2. Your dial-up number willbe *99***2#

or to simplify it:

Setting up of MMS and GPRS handsets:

To download SMART MMS phone settings, key in SET MMS and send to 211.
To download SMART GPRS phone settings, key in SET GPRS and send to 211.

Activating SMART MMS and GPRS:
To activate SMART GPRS, key in GPRS ON and send to 333.
To activate SMART MMS, key in MMS ON and send to 333

Upon receiving the configuration settings, select "Save All" to save the settings in the phone.

Activation of MMS and GPRS will require a confirmation message from SMART. A message will be sent to the sub once the feature has been activated.
