Data coverage in Philippines


    Our Windows Phone Lumia 1520 (938) has the following specifications:


    2.5G (EDGE, GSM/GPRS ) MHz:1800, 1900, 850, 900

    3.5G (HSPA+, UMTS/WCDMA ) MHz:1700, 1900, 2100, 850, 900

    4G (LTE ) Bands:17, 2, 4, 5, 7

    Are these specifications enough to have 2G or 3G functions in the Philippines? We are with the Simple Choice plan. The phone is currently connected to Smart Communications' Network in the Philippines.


    Currently SMS works but WhatsApp, Viber or Skype etc don't work. Is there anything specific that needs to be done in Network Settings to have the bare minimum data functionality? Any other settings to try? Thanks to anyone that can help.
