    Yes as to that physical dual sim. I am using A2412 and can use FaceTime Audio and WiFi calling both for Smart and Globe. I do not know which Chinese model is that - that has limited FaceTime and WiFi calling.

    thanks for this reply. Does that mean the 'VoWiFi' is showing up in the operator logo/name?

    Hi all, currently using iphone x and 8plus. Planning to upgrade either iphone 11 or 12 (both pro). Any suggestion? Especially with the price.

    Also, any suggestion/s where to purchase (cheapest)? I’ve been trying Globe online, but still no stock

    Thanks in advance!

    My personal suggestion would be to get an unlocked 12 pro or pro max from a reputable seller from GH. Telco-issued units are of coursed locked on their own network so you'd wanna avoid that route if you intend to utilize the dual-SIM capability of the newer iPhones. Plus you'd get all the new bells and whistles like Magsafe, Lidar, etc.

    If budget is tight, 11 Pro Max is would be my next suggestion. The increase in screen size is a huge plus if you're coming from an X and 8+

    Thanks for the reply. May I ask if there’s any list or name of any reputable shop in GH where I can inquire?

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    I’m planning to purchase an HK version since I want to utilize the dual-sim version. Any other cons for this version? Does it come with local Apple PH warranty?

    Also, how do I know if it is from HK or Mainland China? Since the model number for them both is A2408 (correct me if I’m wrong)

    Thanks again!

    I renewed my plan via the globe site. I also received the contract details and I have to confirm the payment option. (I chose COD because only COD and HSBC installment was available).

    How can I change it to spread to bill? Is it still possible? Because there was a message that once I confirm the payment method can't be changed anymore.

    What will happen if I don't continue with the payment confirmation?

    Is landline calls included in the unli call and text option?

    after the online renewal, someone from Globe would still be calling you for confirmation. There, you can try to request if the charge to bill option is still available for you? take that opportunity to make some changes, if at all possible.

    Hi all! Is it recommended to install a “camera lens protector” for our iPhone 12 Pro?

    If you want the image quality to reduce then go for it.

    Is this 100% confirmed? If yes, how do we protect the camera lenses from drops and scratches?

    As far as i know, the glass of the camera lens is made of saphire. So it should be okay without having to install protector. Just buy a case that will lift the sides of the camera.

    Are iPhone Camera Lens Protectors WORTH IT?
