Sun Cellular Turns up the Heat - More info

Dropped by a Sun Cellular shop today.

Gets ko na yung 24/7 Call & Text Unlimited (CTU), finally. In simple dimple terms, here's how the service goes...

CTU is an added service on top of the regular Sun service. For a minimal fee (P100 or P250), all calls & text messages to Sun subscribers become FREE!... For a limited period (10 or 30 days). Calls to other networks will have regular charges.

When the CTU period is finished, calls and texts to all networks revert to regular charges. Just load another CTU card (for a fee) to make Sun calls/texts FREE again.

Hope that made things a bit clearer.

Here's some additional info on the CTU service:
  • Sun currently has a promo. Subscribers can avail of the CTU service for free until Oct 15.
  • After Oct 15, subscribers can load a 24/7 CTU card (P100 or P250) to activate the service (with 10 or 30 day expiry, respectively).
  • New subscribers can get a pre-paid SIM for P150. The SIM already has P300 worth of load. This P300 can be used to call/text to other networks. This load can also be used to "purchase" a P100 or P250 CTU card.
  • The SUN SIM can still be used to call Smart/Globe. The subscriber just needs to maintain regular load.
While I was at the Sun shop, there were three businessmen buying 500 Sun SIMs for their 500 call center representatives. Not a bad idea. Sulit daw, instead of giving them P150 each as bonus or incentive, Sun SIM nalang. And it makes their call center reps easier to contact. Also for the reps to contact each other more easily.

Sun is on the right track. Let's see how things develop.

    btw, ako rin, i plan to get Sun SIMs for me and my mom.

    It just struck me. Hindi kailangang both me and my mom ang naka- 24/7 CTU. Kahit siya lang ang naka-24/7 CTU.

    Then she makes the calls to me and her call is free. If I want to talk to her, I won't initiate the call because it will cost me regular charges. I just give her a missed call as a sign for her to call me - for free.

    Hi, I started using Sun Cell just barely two weeks ago..i like it..but sometimes, naiinis me, coz of the signal..minsan down and then i cannot make calls...even to call the operator di pwede. Whew!

    But it has neat features though, imagine how much i save on calls by Suns CTU...great! Sana mas dadami pa ang cellsite dito sa Zamboanga....then all will get sun!
