Sun Cellular has introduced a new set of postpaid plans that includes all of their unlimited services in one SIM.
The Sun Elite Series takes you to a whole new level of Unlimited Services by offering Unlimited Sun to Sun Calls & Texts, Unlimited Internet browsing, Unlimited local landline calls, and other special inclusions such as FREE SMS to other networks, FREE IDD minutes to Sun's top 10 countries.
Available plans include Plan 1500, Plan 2500, and Plan 3500. All plans include unlimited Sun to Sun Calls and Text, Unlimited mobile internet, and Unlimited Local Landline calls via SunTel with the following additions,
- Plan 1500 has 250 free SMS to other networks and 60 free minutes to Sun's top 10 IDD countries.
- Plan 2500 has 500 free SMS to other networks, 90 minutes to Sun's top 10 IDD countries, and a consumable amount of P500.
- Plan 3500 has 750 free SMS to other networks, 120 minutes to Sun's Top 10 IDD countries, and a consumable amount of P1250.
Do these plans sound cheap? I don't think so. Currently, if you get a Sun Broadband subscription together with Sun's cheapest plan, you'll pay P999. P350 for Sun's mobile plan (250 free SMS to other networks included) and P649 for Sun Broadband Wireless. For unlimited local landline calls via SunTel, just add another P249 on top of your monthly bill.
Now let's do the math. P999 (Plan 350 + SBW Plan 649) + P249 (SunTel) = P1248. That's P252 cheaper than their new Sun Elite P1500. Well, we forgot about Sun IDD, but with unlimited internet, you can always use VOIP. It's cheaper in the long run. As for me, I use MagicJack and SkypeOut.
So if what you're after are only unlimited calls, texts, internet and landline calls, I suggest you subscribe to Plan 350, get the Sun Broadband Wireless P649 plan (comes with free modem) and activate your SunTel. Your unlimited internet on Sun Elite will be useless if you're planning on using your SIM on a modem. You can't make/receive calls when your SIM is plugged into that modem right?
Or better yet, get yourself a Globe SIM and subscribe to Super DUO. :P
