Sim card with Data Package

Hi,

Is it possible to get a sim card with data package?

Which network and how much? We're going for 5 weeks and want to be able to use the net just as at home

Thanks

It's a shame we can mark reviews as helpful but not forum posts!

This is a great thread! Thank you for all the info.

I will be travelling with a huge pack of family and friends and want to be able to keep in touch. We will be in Manila and Boracay for 10 days.

To be honest, I've never swapped out my SIM card from my phone. I have an iphone 4 on a 3G network. Can someone explain how this works?

You can have your iPhone unlocked in one of the big malls in manila for around $30 or less.once unlocked you can buy a micro sim card,either from smart or globe....and purchase a prepaid data/voice/text...I got a month unlimited data for $15.

I'm coming in to the Philippines in 3 weeks and am bringing my Verizon UNLOCKED iPhone5...Will they have Nano-Sims for use?

Does any other TA member have an AMerican I5 that they currently use in PI?

What is the price for unlimited data/voice /text for this phone?

Globe and SMART have kiosk at the airport.

If you get it in the airport, they have only those large load like P300 and or P500.

I bought it in Manila 7-11 and just load it with P100.

Choose Smart, it has better coverage in general.
