My Sun Postpaid Experience - After Two Years

This is an informal review of my Sun Cellular postpaid experience. To give you a brief background, two years ago, I got a Plan 999 Galaxy Grand postpaid. Stipulated with the free phone were unlimited mobile internet, unlimited Sun-to-Sun text, and four hours of Sun-to-Sun calls.

sun cellular postpaid plan 999 galaxy grand

To sum things up here's the criteria I used to judge Sun Cellular postpaid.

The Phone Handset- Poor
The Mobile Internet - Poor
The Call/Text Service - Superior
The Support and Billing - Superior
Value for Money - Superior


Here are the details:

The Phone Handset - Poor

In my two years of using the Galaxy Grand, I cannot count the number of that the phone gave me a headache. Some of the problems that I usually encounter are: slow performance, short battery life, and small internal storage.

  • When opening a message or another app, it takes as long as five seconds to do so.
  • When left overnight with Wifi on and data on, it will be dead the next day.
  • 4GB of internal storage is just too small especially that apps keeps getting bigger.
  • The only things that were good about this phone is the Camera, the Sound (along with the free headset), and the screen.

The Mobile Internet - Poor

They say it's unlimited but in reality, you are limited by the speed. I can't even stream YouTube videos and on peak hours and some locations, there's even no internet connection.

The Call/text Service - Superior 

We'll this is one of the bright spots of Sun Cellular. I like the local roaming service that took advantage of their extended network with SMART. It gives Sun cellular an unmatched coverage. Call quality is also good.
What I don't like is international roaming. If you don't call them weeks before your travel, you won't be able to activate your roaming services.

The Support and Billing - Superior

Easy access through sun cellular website, text message reminding me of my bill, timely email of my statement, and payment through BPI Express Online makes it easy to know and pay your dues.
Call support is average. I had times when my calls for support (via 200) were answered immediately and I had times that I have to wait longer.
What I don't like about billing and support is their long lines in the Sun Shop. It was long and slow and the employees seem not to care.


Value for Money - Superior

Sun Cellular plan 999 with Galaxy Grand is one of the cheapest postpaid plan in the planet. But the bad news is that they phased out this plan already.

Will I recommend Sun Cellular as a postpaid provider? MAYBE. It all depends on the needs of the person.

  1. A thought that continues repeating in numerous societies is a winding. Only an idea, yet it speaks to development since it continues getting greater. You could get a tat that had some space around it and do up a smallish winding in a suitable shading As you achieve fresh starts, you can add to it.

  2. So I have been growing and juicing my own wheatgrass. I very causally read the growing section of Ann Wigmores's book on growing wheatgrass and that, with my general knowledge of sprouting seeds, I figured out the relatively simple process.

  3. Super easy, super healthy. You can either juice wheatgrass by itself as a shot, which is typical, in which case you will want a tray per shot per day you plan to consume. I would say roughly 1 tray = 1 shot.

  4. This. This is exactly why I decided to start blogging. It can be very isolating being home with babies, even if you get out and do stuff each day. It is so nice to read about another woman going through it too!

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
