  3. Hello guys,

    Please help me with my problem. I registered my phone in POWERSURF TIME 15. But when I tried to navigate any website in my opera browser the output is always connection failed. I tried to configure the GPRS settings manually.
    The first thing that I did is I navigate my SIM settings and I go to the GPRS settings and after that it prompts a confirmation for what kind of mobile I am using. I typed Myphone A848 duo and press OK. Then via SMS message I recieved a message from 29511. It says "You have entered an invalid keyword. To get handset settings for FREE, text GO to 2951... etc..." then after that I tried also GO to 2951 and I got a message "Sorry, your phone is not compatible to recieve this setting... etc...". Next method that I did is, I browse in the internet for manual connection of GPRS in Globe. and I found an solution. Here's the manual configuration

    myGlobe INET APN Settings:

    Connection Name: myGlobeInet
    PSA: or no PSA
    Port: 80 or no Port

    myGlobeConnect APN Settings:

    Connection Name: myGlobeConnect
    PSA: or no PSA
    Port: 8080 Port

    I followed the steps correctly. And I always get the same error in connection. "CONNECTION FAILED"

    Please help me guys. What should I do.

    That's all thanks.

  10. Hi, I have a new Cat B15 phone. When I use a Smart sim, I can get 3g signals. But when I use a Globe sim, it can only reach 2g and can't seem to find any globe 3g signals. Ironically, while on Globe, the phone recognizes Sun and Smart 3g networks but are just forbidden because it's a Globe sim. Is there a difference between the 3g bands that smart and globe uses?

  11. Very useful. Thank you for sharing this. Andami mong matutulungan sa mga post na gaya neto.

  12. Kelangan p dn po b iconfigure ang tablet kung s tablet iiinsert ang sim card?
