  1. Not sure if this it the right area, but here it goes. I am part owner of a 2 story house in Malasiqui. It has a metal roof with wood truss. There are a few leaky spots in the roof, possibly some rot. Wife concerned about it holding up to a typhoon as well as how it will potentially leak into the house and cause more damage. Any ballpark idea on what it would cost to get a roof repaired or replaced? About 1000 sq ft. I mean, like somewhere between $1,000 and $10,000? I have no idea.
  2. I bought a Globe pre-paid SIM from ebay. I got AT&T to unlock the IPhone using the original AT&T SIM and the online process. I wiped the phone, installed Globe SIM, set APN as required. Rebooted. After 15 minutes or so, it came up T-Mobile with a Philippines phone number. Using that number, I was able to download and setup GCash and register it. So I have a Phil activated phone here in Texas. Will try loading it here in a while. As Globe basic account I can not add payment methods so I will use a recharge site as someone was helpful enough to mention earlier. So there are 2 ways
  3. Wife has lived here 23 years and did not have a cell in Philippines ever. So you load the phone with an amount of money, then use that load to purchase data and/or minutes?
  4. Yep, looks like it will work. One more question, when recharging, what is the difference between 'data' and 'phone credit'?
  5. Yeah, I was wondering. But while researching, I read a lot of people buy Globe pre-paid sims at Manila airport when they arrive and use them, no one mentioned issues with carrier frequencies?
  6. Yeah, I just happen to always have iPhone and we have a spare since wife upgrades so I would be most familiar with that. I found someone on ebay that sells Philippines sims, so technically I guess I could get that, put it in phone, then they could activate and I could load it from here. May be making things hard on myself that way :) Wife did mention Lazada, we use them sometimes. So, I could buy a phone on say globe from Lazada, then use recharge dot com to charge it when needed. Either way, the missing piece was the recharge site, THANK YOU SO MUCH! ds
  7. Hi, Wife and I live in US (just celebrated our 23rd anniversary!). Her parents are in Pangasinan in North Luzon. Figured I would start here with a cell phone question as I am sure many of you are familiar with how they work in the Philippines. Wire's parents are older and we want to get them a smart phone so they can do Facebook messenger, etc. I personally like iPhones, so that is the direction we are leaning. They DO have internet, so it would be possible to just send them a used iPhone I have and use that, but electric is unreliable and of course they keep turning it off to save elect
