I now have a Sun number again. A long time ago, my friends and I joined the Sun craze when it was first introduced but we reverted back to our good old reliable network providers after encountering a lot of problems with it.
I decided to get another Sun number today upon seeing their Call & Text International Sim. It sells for only P49! And if you have loved ones abroad, forget about the Globe OFW sim, this is by far the most affordable package that you can get. My parents are both in the US and I have friends over at Singapore that I keep in touch with. Globe used to charge just a peso for text messages sent to Singtel so I only have to worry about the costly text messages to the US. However, Globe introduced a new promo just recently, in order for you to enjoy the cheap rates to Singapore, you still have to register to their promo which requires a weekly fee of about P50 which to me is appalling. It's as if they are not earning enough that they still have to charge you for wanting to send text messages abroad.
Good thing I discovered the Sun sim, it costs only P1 per text message sent to 20 popular destinations and only $.10 per minute for 10 popular destinations. Cheaper than a local call! How great is that? Spread the word!
