Perhaps you have a new TNT prepaid SIM and you want to start using it for calls, texts and Internet. The first thing you should do is to activate it so that you will enjoy the benefits of Smart’s nationwide LTE and 5G network. In this article, you will learn how to activate your TNT SIM card so you can connect with your friends and start surfing the Internet right away.
TNT or Talk ‘N Text is a cellular service powered by Smart Communications and is known for its incredibly affordable prepaid promos. For as low as ₱10 per day, you can enjoy unlimited texts or calls to anyone in the Philippines. Mobile data promos from TNT are pretty affordable, too. With promos like GaanSurf, you can visit websites, browse Facebook or watch YouTube videos for as low as ₱5. It’s no wonder why many Filipinos are switching to TNT to save money on texts, calls and mobile data.
With 5G already rolling out in some areas of the country, it’s a good idea to get a TNT 5G-ready SIM to prepare for the future. 5G is at least 10 times faster than 4G/LTE so you might enjoy speeds of 1Gbps or more if things go according to plan. With the latest SIM from TNT, you will only need to buy a 5G-capable device to enjoy 5G Internet speed once it’s available in your area.
Your new TNT SIM will also work with 4G/LTE and 3G networks, so you can enjoy fast mobile Internet courtesy of Smart’s nationwide LTE network. If you’re still using an old TNT SIM that can only access 3G, you can buy an LTE Upgrade SIM to upgrade to 4G while still retaining your old number.
