Things That Make You Go Hmmmm

OK. So, one of the local service providers has a prepaid plan that gives you unlimited talk & text for 30 days for P600. All you do is load P600 on the phone and then text a code to a specific number and wala you have unlimited talk & text for 30 days.

 

Sooo, I go to the local sari-sari and give the gal P600 and ask for the load. After trying and failing 3 times to pass me the load, the gal looks in her book, hands me back the P600 and then informs me "I'm sorry sir. I cannot give you P600 load. I can only give you P500 or P100. Which do you want?"

 

Wellll, being the kind, diplomatic expat that I am. I handed her P500 and politely asked for that load. Success! I then handed her the P100 and asked for that. Success again! I then told her "Thank you. I now have P600 load."

 

She just looked at me and gave me that "Stupid, crazy Kano" look and I went on my merry way.

 

Eez more pun!!!

Ron, she is correct.

 

She's Globe Agent or Sub Agent. If you saw her phone you would see the options....20-30-60-100-300-500. Those are the denominations she is allowed to send.  I will sometimes buy 100 to load my Tattoo for 2 days, but since you need a balance of 1 peso to use the service I buy 100, then 20.

 

You are lucky she had enough load to send you 600, since they buy the load many don't keep a high balance.

 

I buy Globe 500 Pre Paid Cards, available only in town. 10 Pesos discount so 490 plus 85 free text messages. Saves me quite a bit over a month, 2 Cards a month I buy, again to load my Tattoo.

Once the 600 load is obtained, in any way imaginable, then you

text a code to a specific number and wala you have unlimited talk & text for 30 days.

But most of these promos require you to maintain a balance of at least 5 pesos so keep that in mind when buying load.
