November 16th, 2010

Aryty has just raised their rates to buy load and send load to the Philippines.

The new rates are effective immediately, raising P300 from $7.20 to $7.50. is still a great place to buy load as they do not tack on service fees and load is delivered very fast. While some will say that these rate increases are an Aryty scam, its not the case. Aryty simply needs to adjust for the fluctuations in currency between the US and the Philippines.

November 21st, 2009


Time to buy some more load from Globe. Surfing the internet is great on the new HTC Magic phone running the Android operating system from Google. Globe makes the new HTC Magic available in the Philippines and it’s free at GPlan or GFlex 7000 in Megamall Globe Telecom Business Center (4/F Cyberzone, Building B).
