Thanks, I guestimated by looking at some of the inclusive call packages available
Does anybody remember:
Handwriting a letter,
Placing it in an envelope,
Walking to the post office and buying a stamp,
Posting the letter in a pillar box.
Things were so much easier in those days.
I still have the letters sent from the Phils by my first wife... back in 1990. Airmail of course.
The 'round trip' of our letters took about a month. Even in the early 90s, it cost a pound a minute for a phone call to the Phils... first 5 minutes taken up by excited Tagalog chatter from friends or relatives... determining whether or not your loved one was actually at home or not... if they'd figured out you weren't a Martian or summat, causing that strange object in the corner to ring out.
At least letters (with photos) were a lot more convincing, and easier to show the Entry Officer, than a bundle of chat logs and emails.
When was the last time you recieved a holiay postcard?
who can afford a postage stamp any more ?
What' a postage stamp?
most paper mail i get is junk.
Same for e-mail.
Agree that FaceTime works well here. I chat with my daughter in UK each weekend for about an hour. Always good quality, no drop outs.
I suggest that you get Vonage and send her the Vonage box that will plug into her router - that will recognise the line as a UK line, and then you can call her for free.
Yes, but she will still have to pay for the internet connection, so may not be too expensive, but not free.
im very interested in this topic as we use facebook messenger to video call between Northamptonshire and Siquijor, Siquijor . I know it costs about 26 pesos for about an hours video calling, Im on giffgaff and I pay 20 quid a month for 80 gig of internet use, I dont even know hat network my Sharon uses, Ill have to ask her . Im not if this is cheap or not so enlighten me if you can please? all I know is the connectionb is pretty solid even in thunderstorms in Siquijor Siquijor.
Siquijor Town? I know it well, I lived in siquijor for a while have you been there? It's changed dramatically in the 30 years since I first went when there were no private cars nor surfaced roads on the island, isla Del fuego always had a rep for wakwaks, mañana gals, balbals and aswang, just superstitious nonsense really what's your good ladies family name if you don't mind me asking? I have lots of friends on the island.
I suggest a simple solution to some of the costs.
I used to hang around free wi-fi spots, and my wife did the same.
I am on BT broadband at home now, but it allows me to latch on to over 5 million wifi hot spots in the country, and if that is not available, any coffee place, MacD's. KFC, Burger King and supermarket do offer free WIFI. Heck, even M&S...
Failing all that, my "3" deal allows me true unlimited data, phone and text for 20 quid a month
