Sometimes, our friends and family may find themselves in a bind and they need mobile data immediately. Or maybe, they only need a few MBs of mobile data and don’t want to subscribe to a full promo. If only there was a way to quickly and easily share your mobile data with the ones you care about.
Fortunately for Smart and TNT users, you can now easily send your unused MBs with your friends and loved ones through the PasaData feature. Read on to learn how you can share your mobile data with Smart PasaData.
What is PasaData?
Most of us are already familiar with Smart PasaLoad, which allows Smart and TNT users to share their mobile load with fellow Smart users. Smart PasaData follows the same concept where Smart and TNT users can share a portion of their promo’s MBs to their friends and family.
Not all mobile data promos are compatible with PasaData. PasaData requires that your promo must have what is called shareable data so that you can send and share your MBs.

And send the message to 808.
