Can someone recommend reliable mobile phone system that would work in the US and the Philippines?
I know somebody who has Cingular tri-band phone, not sure which type. Roaming charges are expensive so he just swaps SIM cards whenever he's in the Phil. YMMV.
Just make sure that your mobile is not locked on your provider.
what is your cell provider in the US?
My sister left me her Samsung T-Mobile phone when she went here for vacation. Just make sure that your provider unlock it first.
Sa Greenhills kaya, baka sisiw lang sa kanila i-unlock.
Unlock what? I do not understand what you posted Chito. I am technologically challenged.
Jerry - Tell us who your provider is. Guys, meron nga pala dito sa tate na hindi gumagamit ng SIM card. Manong Jerry, if your mobile uses SIM card, ni-lock ng provider yung celfone para hindi makagamit ng ibang SIM card which is not their own. Like me, I have T-mobile as my provider, I cannot use other provider's SIM card dahil naka-lock yung cel. My son bought his celfone in the Phil and he got that in Greenhills so hindi nakalock. He can use any provider (T-mobile, Cingular etc) on his celfone.
Hope this helps.
Cell phone add'l info:
GSM technology uses SIM card. Most popular carriers are Cingular and T-Mobile.
CDMA technology does not use sim card. Some carriers are Verizon and Sprint. (I don't know if Phil. use this system)
Like Vega stated, carriers lock the phone to their system to force you to buy a new phone if you want to swap carriers. Some shops unlock your phone for about $15.
locked..only the SIM from your cell provider can be installed and used.
Mura lang naman pag unlocked..OPEN LINE tawag ..wala pong problema basta Triband yung cellphone otherwise upgrading ang kailangan. say from version 4 to version 5..parang PC may Windows 2000 , may windows XP.
sorry, mang danny already posted what i wanted to say.
