    Default Philippines and Moto G

    Does anyone in the Philippines have a Moto G? Just seeing if the US Global version will work there. Want to buy one for as a door prize for a company party.

    Find out what networks they're on.

    These are the supported bands -

    Global GSM Model:
    GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)

    US GSM Model:
    GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps (850, 1700 (AWS), 1900 MHz)

    Pick which one suits the Philippines networks the best.

    Search on eBay for reputable unlock codes. You can check them here as well. Payment is via PayPal, there are some forums you can buy credits from here in the Philippines if you don't have a credit card. They'll meet up with you just like any other transaction so you can be safe. They'll make the transaction and check your balance before you hand over the cash. Google is your friend.
