Cellular Phone Questions
« on: January 15, 2018, 10:29:46 PM »
I plan to get a Claro SIM card upon arrival in Sosua and some minutes. To say I am not technology savvy would be an understatement. Do any of you have recommendations on an unlocked cellular phone model that could be purchased prior to arrival? From what members have discussed in here, a phone that will have whatsapp is needed. I have never used whatsapp but have read a bit about it. I am also not a fan of giving my passport in order to get a SIM card and having the phone registered to my name. I don't really want every chica in the country to know my full name when caller ID shows up. Is there a way around this?

Download Google Voice, choose a number,  and use that number as your Whatsapp number instead so chicas dont have your personal number.

Not sure on the first question because i have T-mobile, so I get unlimited data when I am in  DR and several other countries....so ive never purchsed a separate SIM.

Thanks. I have a Google voice number already and didn't realize one could use that number. WhatsApp doesn't work on a laptop so I will need to open up my tablet.

You can buy a cheap unlocked phone from Best Buy and lots of other places, including on Amazon. Since you're new to this a good first start would be Best Buy. Just tell the store clerk that you're going on a vacation to the Dominican Republic and that you want a very inexpensive phone that will work down there.  They can tell you what your options are. Also, any phone can be set so that your name doesn't appear on caller ID, so don't fret about that.

Another option is to just get a cheap phone when you arrive in the DR. I can tell you're very sensitive about your privacy, but in years of going to the DR I have never had any problems at all stemming from use of a second phone in the country. You'll put the WhatsApp on your phone and then remove it when you're headed back to the U.S. Once you take the app off you'll shut off all communications with the chicas.

Also,  it is possible to get by without telephone communications at all with the chicas if you want to be ultra-private. You'll have no problems picking up chicas at random without having go engage with them by phone. The problem with that is maintaining contact for repeat visits or second dates, etc.

I would say you should just relax and go for it.

 These guys are making it way too complicated. Just go to your local pawnshop and buy any smart phone that’s cheap that’s a Verizon phone. Claro is a Verizon company so it will workqq.  But if you want to be sure you can purchase an iPhone I believe after 5C they stopped unlocking iPhones so any Verizon iPhone will work

i just bought a local sim card and stuck it in my iphone. i also bought a dual sim handy "xiaomi redmi note 4x" where you can "dual whatsapp" but honestly, it's too big for me if you are used to an iphone. i don't want to lug it around so i have my other sim cards in there to stay available on the normal lines from back home.
and yes, for a claro sim you do have to give up your passport ID.
however, there are sim cards that work in the dominican republic that you can purchase beforehand. look for something like "global/travel sim cards". this way you probably can't purchase a data plan for the DR but then again, all the restaurants, even at the beach, have WiFi, so you don't really need it.

almost all these hoes have facebook next to whatsapp so that's another way to stay in contact. just create a fake profile.
personally, i like the mobility so i purchased the data plan for my claro SIM. you get 5GB traffic for 5 days for 150 pesos.

Thanks for the input. I will look for a Verizon unlocked phone; it will just need to be a smart phone model so the WhatsApp works on it. I acquired the taste for privacy after visiting another destination and having a Chica call me at work in the US. Apparently she did an Internet search and found me. Luckily I had a cold that day and the voice sounded different, so she was convinced she had the wrong person. I don't have an understanding employer. Never again.

Hmmm. Interesting. None of the chicas in the DR know my real name. Just follow some basic privacy guidelines and you'll be fine. You can leave Whatsapp on your phone to stay in touch with chicas between visits, or you can remove it from your phone the day you leave town. It's all up to you. Either way you never should offer up personal information that could lead to an internet search

I coming down to Sosua for an extended stay and planning to use my US phone.  First of all, I am paying for the phone while I'm gone so why not use it.  I get unlimited data (only 3g) and text and pay 20 cents a minute for voice. My Spanish is not that good so I don't expect to talk on the phone that much.  Besides the chicas love to text and use emogis.  My kids back in California won't even answer a phone call.

Are you sure you have international roaming on your phone?

A friend had an unlocked 2017 iPhone SE he hated and gave me. Apparently it was "too small" for his tastes, but it will make an adequate monger phone. I put a Tracfone SIM card in it to ensure it's working well on any network, and it works fine. The Tracfone provided three separate SIM cards for $1 depending on the network one wanted to attach, such as AT&T, Verizon, etc. I was able to get a fresh number with the SIM card and would likely be able to get two other numbers with the other SIM cards. Seeing as how all of you say that the girls use WhatsApp to communicate, do I really need a Dominican Republic SIM card? WhatsApp goes through the Internet according to what is written. Is there an advantage to actually having a DR SIM and phone coverage?

Sounds like you're good to go for basic data use. What abou making calls back to the U.S., or even to hotels and such in the DR? are you good to go from that standpoint?
