bicol_willem Yes you are correct. I am waiting on the model number at this time. Some times it takes them a while to be able to get to internet cafe. Thanks for the help.
No need to wait for any model number. The Smart modems are supported. Made sure you connect it with a USB port. Ignore any popup and close these in case.
Go to Contol Center - Network and Internet - Set up new network interface - choose GPRS/EDGE/3G and click next .... Your modem will show. Click next again. Forget about the pin and click next again... Choose Philippines from the long list presented there and pick Smart from the providers given there. . All details are auto detected (userpoint name, login name, password) just clicjk next again. There is connection control, pick your choice.... Click next again and here is asked : Do you want the start the connection now?
Next and ... POOF, there ya go!
NOTE: The above ONLY when there is actually Smart coverage
