Is Sun Cellular now riding on Smart’s network?

I know this would not be a huge surprise since Sun Cellular is already a member of the PLDT Group but just saw a couple of days ago that Sun Cellular has upgraded its network’s signal strength.

Got a tip that the recently announced Sun Cellular Wireless Broadband service will be priced at Php999 per month with unlimited usage. Sun Cellular’s 3G will use a similar USB dongle. This is so far the cheapest and only unlimited 3G provider in the Philippines. However, since Sun Cellular has just started rolling out their HSDPA network, 3G coverage will be limited to several areas in Metro Manila.

Sun Cellular’s “Text 2BID” the coolest gadgets

Just read in the newspaper (Philippine Star) about this Sun Cellular promo Text 2Bid. I thought they were launching a BidShot competitor of some sorts but this one looks like a regular promo.

Here are the mechanics:

Cool new gadgets will be given away in an auction — iPods, Nokia cellphones, digital cameras and Sony PSP — however, this auction will award the person who makes the lowest unique bid for that item.

An Apple iPod 60GB has a starting bid of Php250 only. If there are at least two people bidding the same amount for the gadget, they’re disqualified. The winner must have sent a unique bid amount with the lowest value.


Bid Amount : Php251.50
Number of Bids : 3 (not unique)

Bid Amount : Php252.75
Number of Bids : 6 (not unique)

Bid Amount : Php254.50
Number of Bids : 1 (unique)

Bid Amount : Php261.25
Number of Bids : 3 (not unique)

Bid Amount : Php261.50
Number of Bids : 1 (unique)

The person who bid Php254.50 wins.

Dear Sun Cellular

An old friend asked me to post this on my blog, hoping Sun Cellular would listen and read:

Opening a New Sun Cellular Account

To Whom It May Concern:

Last 18MAR06 I applied for a new Sun Cellular account. I have passed
the necessary requirements as stated in your website.

1. Completely filled-up application form.

2. Valid ID – SSS ID.

3. A. Proof of Billing

– Electricity Bill
– Water Bill

I live in a condominium where the electric and water bills do not bear
the names Meralco or MWSS.

B. Proof of Income – Form 2316 and last 2 payslips.

I vividly remember the lady attending my application informing me to expect 2-3 days processing time. Great!

After 1 week I receive a call requesting for additional statements. Recalling that the statements I provided (water and electricity bills) might not be acceptable, I decided to forward my last 2 credit card statements. I intentionally crossed out my credit card numbers.

Today (28 of March ’06) I receive a call informing me to submit another creditcard statement with my credit card numbers revealed. I will do no such thing and I demand a valid explanation. Anybody in their right mind will not disclose their credit card information to anyone who already has one’s personal information.

I believe I have submitted the necessary requirements. Either you approve my application or not, I don’t really care anymore. I’m no longer excited.

This will definitely fall on deaf ears. Prove me wrong by giving me a response. You know how to reach me.

The last line reads “9 years Globe subscriber”. If you can’t accomodate this switcher, I don’t think you deserve to have loyal subscribers.
