I see the responses. I will look at the box using the RSO. Still more homework to do for sure.

I also was able to buy a MagicJack Plus online and have it sent to this address (as the package was less than 14oz). I recommend that you get some kind of VOIP phone with a US Number before you get here. That way you can make no cost calls stateside and use it for your reference number on your credit cards. I also recommend getting (if you don't already have) a Visa that uses VeriSign or a MasterCard that uses Securecard. Most vendors over here (especially airlines) won't allow you to book online unless you have one of the above. This also goes along with notifying your financial institution that you will be living here and to have the transactions/online banking unblocked for the Philippines...
You are right, I am NOT retired military so my RAO address is a PO BOX in Manila. My banks will not send my new credit cards to a Manila P.O. Box.

I just use US Global Mail then I look at the picture of mail I have received and discard the junk.. it's great to set a forwarding mailing address and have credit cards and stuff sent to. They can also scan the mail item so you can read it or forward it to an address.

I have found it to be reliable. Nothing has been lost that I've forwarded.

If you choose to sign up let me PM your email address to me so I can refer you. I think we both will get a free month. But be patient if I don't respond right away. In southern leyte the mobile Internet is not reliable so I travel to San francisco or liloan to use internet café.

It's 3-4 weeks after posting from the UK that my girlfriend receives the mail on Mindinao. It's slow but I have had 100% success so far

You are extremely lucky so far. From now till after the middle of Jan, it almost comes to a complete stop due to the holidays and theft.

Mail = letters, yep, they don't get pilfered

Anything else, gets lost along the way very easily

Hence LbC or JollyB and their likes
