If you have an unlocked Huawei E1550, you can use with your Globe SIM to connect to the Internet. Just make sure you have unlimited data or you are on time-based charging. Otherwise, things could get pretty expensive real quick.
You will need a wireless broadband dialer. I just happened to have the Sun Wireless Broadband Dialer. To configure it for Globe Internet, go to Tools->Options->Profile Management and create a new profile. In the profile name, put “MyGlobe Internet”. In the APN, click static and enter “internet.globe.com.ph” (or “http.globe.com.ph” for prepaid). In Authentication, keep the access number at “*99#” and the user name and password blank. Click OK. Click Connection, choose your newly created My Globe Internet profile, and click connect.
This process also creates a MyGlobe Internet dial-up connection which you can supposedly use to dial instead of the dialer. But somehow it does not work properly.
Alternately, if you don’t have a wireless broadband Internet dialer, you can manually create the dial-up connection. The key is adding AT+CGDCONT=1,”IP”,”internet.globe.com.ph” in the extra initialization commands for the modem.
That’s it! Happy surfing!
