Free Internet using your 3G phones here in Dumaguete using Opera Mini
Here’s one good way to access the Internet for free here in Dumaguete. I have been using this method for a week now but others have been using it for almost a year. You just need a cellphone that can install a .jar file. All new phones can install this file, I tried installing it using my w890i and it works perfectly. I’ve also tried to install it in my previous k800i cellphone and it works fine. I used a Smart SIM in testing this and you just need 1 peso of load to access the Internet.
How did I do it? Well you need to download this modded Opera browser in your cellphone first, here is the download link OPERA MINI v.4.2 Thor’s Edition. Just install it in your cellphone and you are good to go. Make sure that you have the correct Internet settings set up in your phone though. For Globe or Smart users try to check their respective websites for the settings. You can also call their customer care numbers to have the settings sent to you.
My phone already had all the correct settings for Smart and Globe so all I needed to do was install the Opera browser software. I made sure my Smart SIM only had a peso load when I checked the Internet. Worked perfectly! I could surf any site, check my emails and most importantly update my Mafia Wars game in my Facebook account.
The file which you have was actually provided to me by Thormentor of symbianize.com. You could also check out his other programs at the forum mentioned.
Free mobile Internet anyone?
