This unit is plug-and-play, meaning, once you connect the Huawei e5830 MiFi to your laptop or PC, it will autorun and install the program needed for you to set it up.

Steps in setting up your Huawei e5830 and making it work for Sun, Globe or Smart mobile broadband:

6. Select tools from the menu:

7. Select Profile Management

8.  Then, click new
9. You only need to enter 2 details. 1 is the APN and another is the Dial-up number.
10. For the which APN to use question, select "Static"

To know which APN and Dial-up Number to use, check out your preferred network below:

Sun Prepaid
APN: minternet
Dial-Up Number: *99#

Sun Postpaid
APN: fbband
Dial-Up Number: *99#

Globe Prepaid
Dial-Up Number: *99***1#

Globe Postpaid
Dial-Up Number: *99***1#

Smart Bro
APN: smartbro
Dial-Up Number: *99#

Smart Buddy
APN: internet
Dial-Up Number: *99#

For smart connections, go to "Advance" and choose "PAP" then Save.
(be sure to activate your Smart sim first for internet use) To activate, type 3G ON and GPRS ON send to 333, MMS ON send to 3401


APN: weroamplan
Dial-Up Number: *99#
After entering your respective APNs and Dial-up numbers, click save. You can also select the "default" option if you want a certain connection to be default.

For this to work, you have to have an openline Huawei e5830. Those for sale in Globe aren't openline so, other networks won't be able to connect.
