SUN Cellular 3G Speed Test

Last time we figured out how to activate our 3G/GPRS data on Sun Cellular network. I decided to do some speed tests yesterday and here are the results.


Used’s mobile site for testing at Marikina area.

As you can see like SMART and GLOBE even when the device is set to pure 3G we are only getting 2G speeds. Truly our networks are sorely lacking in the quality department.


Sun’s data rates are priced the same as SMART at 10PhP for 30mins of surfing. As of this writing:

SMART 10PhP/30mins

SUN 10PhP/30mins

GLOBE 5PhP /15mins or 0.25PhP / Kb

I have all 3 SIMs from the carriers mentioned above:

SMART post paid on palm Treo Pro

SUN post paid on HTC S730

GLOBE prepaid Visibility on Huawei E160 USB 3G Modem


  1. Guess I'm not moving to wireless "Broadband" anytime soon.

    Crappy telcos.

  2. @stumbler *wireless broadband* is a hoax here!

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…

Black Cat vs Firestar vs Silver Sable?

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…
