  2. How will students or staff eat if they are not allowed to leave? edit: how do you distinguish between a protester and a regular student/staff? Why not just suspend school operations for the day or rest of the week if it is that bad?

    Huawei Y9 purchase concerns

    You go to the sim card provider's shop and they re-issue you a new sim (same number) free of charge. (AIS shop, Telewiz, etc) The new sim cards come from the factory pre-cut in triple size (nano, micro, regular). This is recommended vs taking the old sim to 3rd party to manually cut. It may or may not fit properly....especially if the surface area of the older sim metal is too large.

    Y7 pro 2018 also has this. The recent system update apparently activated VoLTE.

    Mid-range smartphone recommendations

    The midyear Thai Mobile Expo is coming up next week 24-27 May 2018 at the Queen Sirikit Convention Center . If you can make it, you might be able to find some good deals there. Samsung will showcase the A6/A6+ 2018 (8990/10,990) . A scaled down version of S9. If it has dual sim (2 dedicated slots + dedicated microSD slot), then it might be worth looking at. Most of the vendors will give out premiums with the phone purchase. Also you get the comfort of seeing multiple types of mobile devices from all the major brands showcased in one place. Plenty of mid-range choices should be available.

    It depends on what breaks. If the charging port is broken and can be fixed for 200-300 baht without breaking other phone functionality, do you need to throw out an otherwise working phone? Even if you wanted to get a new one, the old one will make a great spare or gift for someone.

    Huawei Y9 purchase concerns

    Both slots have all available radio access, but only one slot can use 4G/3G at a time. The other slot is forced to 2g radio only. But it seems that most recent modela the non-active slot may be able to use 2g + 3g (not 2g only). I feel like a sucker for buying y7 for 5k in the shop with no bonus.....but you do get it right away. The y9 was 7k. 5k for y9 is very good. Lazada? I think 6-7k would be the upper limit for a Huawei phone. We will see how they handle support over the coming months. There was a trades how in town earlier; finally got a case for it. Went over 1 month and no one had a case. The phone model and design was too "new".
  8. Is there a cost for this? Where are they located? Sent from my LDN-LX2 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Huawei Y9 purchase concerns

    Huawei y7 pro 2018 / y9 2018 2 independent nano-sim slot + microSD slot According to the dual sim settings page, the non-data sim uses 2g/3g So I'm not sure if standby sim can also use 3g while mobile internet is on. But a tower which normally only gave 3g or higher signal now gives signal on this y7 2018 phone. A previous phone 2+ years ago from asus would say 2g only in dual sim settings for the non-internet sim. And I would not get a signal at all from that 2nd sim. If the non-internet sim can still use both 2g and 3g, this is good news. Especially if 2g becomes depreciated later. Sent from my LDN-LX2 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  10. How does one actually get a police clearance check or police background check in Thailand? Is there a sample application form, or a sample of what the final cert looks like when it is issued?
  11. Hmmm. you mean that you obtained a multiple re-entry permit? If you don't mind, how much in fees did you pay for the non-o visa, 12 month extension, multiple re-entry permit?
  12. Are you saying you don't need any financial proof for the local conversion to non-immigrant o? Or the 400k needs to be shown, but does not have to be seasoned for 60 days? Sent from my LDN-LX2 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  13. You can possibly convert the visa exempt entry into a non-o visa at certain popular immigration offices only. (Pattaya should be possible) If you need more time, you may be able to extend for 60 days to visit thai family (you can do that once per entry stamp). Once converted to non-o, you follow the normal procedure for 1 yr extension. Sent from my LDN-LX2 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Deportation illigal work

    All that is needed is non-immigrant visa. The reasons to extend are interchangeable as long as you meet the minimum criteria. Which category non-immigrant that he stated with wasn't important. @Vasilii, what is the country of your passport? If you were married to a Thai, any reason why you never had a non-o?
