Smart Communications leads LTE on prepaid locally, with dual-cut Micro SIM and Nano SIM on sale at Php40 and Php100, respectively at Smart Shops and telco retailers nationwide.
The P40 micro SIM card actually has two cuts that would fit either in a regular SIM or in a micro SIM card tray, which already includes 35 FREE SMS to all networks. While the nano SIM only fits the Nano SIM card tray, which also includes P50 consumable load.
Now, since these Smart SIM cards are both prepaid, you can just choose to buy any of Smart’s LTE Prepaid packages from 1 day, 7 days, or for full 30 days of unlimited LTE mobile internet access with speeds of up to 42Mbps.
Smart’s Prepaid LTE Data Bundles includes LTE 50 for only Php50 for 1 day unli online access, LTE 299 for Php299 in 7 days, and LTE 995 with 30 days access for Php995. Just text either LTE 50, LTE 299 or LTE 995 to 2200, for whichever data bundle you would like to avail.
Next question is, what smartphones are compatible with the Smart Prepaid LTE SIM? The iPhone 5 is, though the iPhone 4 or the 4S still don’t have LTE. For Android, the Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia V, Sony Xperia Z, ZTE T82, and Huawei Ascend D1 LTE are among Smart’s offering. The Nokia Lumia 920 for Windows phone also makes it to the LTE capable smartphones list. For more recent phones, you can check their technical specs prior getting one.
