Looking For Dual Sim Phone That Is Australian Compatable

Recommended Posts

Posted

Hi guys, I have been taking 2 phones to Cebu for several years now. Quite frankly it is a pain in the butt. Does anyone know of a dual sim phone that will take both my Australian Telstra sim and work in Australia, and also take my TM sim from Cebu and work when I am in PI.

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

i have a samsung Galaxy y GT s6102, its a dual sim card phone and easy to switch between sims, takes all of a nano second. Keep your philippines sim in one sim slot and your Aussie in the other, however depending on whether your aussie sim or philippines sim has international roamin on it will determine if it will work when out of the respective country.  But when you are in the Philis at least one of the two sims will work without having to take out and one replace it with the other.  And there is the issue of depending on how long you are out of the country before you lose the nubmber as the teleco reissues the number to someone else because it is dormant.

I have a Samsung DUOS GT-7582 that I bought in Cebu for about 8,000p. It works in Canada on 1 of 3 of my local service providers. Very decent phone.

The PI sim will go dormant i think 90 days after the load expires. I keep mine active by reloading the sim card at My Pinoy Load.com. I do it online via paypal, never had any problems. And its cheap too.

Thanks Lou, that is what I have been doing for several years as well, so I don't have to keep changing PI numbers.
