  1. I am also from Houston area, I read your website all the time. You had 2 zines about you disappearing minutes in your loads. I am trying to find them because I have the same problem with Smartbro. Please refer me to the Zines.

    1. Well Stever thanks for reading my blog. It’s always good to have a fellow Texan reading. Do you also live in the Philippines? Okay. I’ll see if I can find them, they were not that long ago. I can tell you that, according to Globe, they fixed the problem. I’m not going to be much help in telling you what they did when I brought it in to them, but it was simple. There is something that is turned on in there that needs to be turned off. On my Samsung S4, as you are looking at the phone, the thing that comes up to the left of the battery percentage is what was on that needed to be off. If it has some arrows moving there, then it’s able to steal your load. That is all according to the rep at Globe now. I have not tried to put another load in there since then. I do not use my phone as a phone most of the time. I only use it as a camera. However if you still want those posts, I will find them for you.

      1. Thanks for the quick reply, that was the blog I was was trying to find. I have turned it off now.
        I have been iiving in Sindangen for 6 years now.
        I like the Philippines very much.
        Hope you enjoyed your trip to Cebu. I was also there on Feb 9 and 10th. to pay for my passport renewal. Thanks again

  2. Good to see a post from you. About your Globe phone…if you load P100 and DO NOT subscribe to a promo, your pesos will get eaten up faster than a pig at a fiesta. I will usually subscribe to SUPERUNLI25 which is unlimited text/calls, good for 24 hours. After one day, I figure I can go several more days without having to text or call anyone. Incoming texts and calls from other Globe users are free. I can make that P100 last a couple weeks if need be…most times.

    1. If it’s going to eat up the load, then what’s the point of them selling loads at all these places? I may be going to Globe today to ask them about that and maybe even about one of those promos you mentioned. I don’t normally need a phone anyway.

  3. Hey John good to hear you and Lita made it back safe to Samar. I am looking forward to my next trip. Nila says hello to Lita.

      1. I guess it will be sometime last of april like are other yearly trips. Need to check on repairs to house and do more repairs. It has become a money pit. All ways sending money for it and finding more problems each time we are there.

          1. Is anyone having trouble getting to my latest post (Guam Money, Food & Beer)? One reader says he can not get to it. I was messed up, but I thought I corrected it. Please let me know what your status is with that post.
