Sun Cellular, up sold me to a non-existent mobile data plan. *OUCH!*

I always make fun of people getting up sold in HKG or SG by those rascals that sell electronics. Well Karma is probably ROFL’ing about this…

Here is the timeline:

9/3/09 – Arrive in MNL from PVG, Sun line disconnected, exceeded credit limit because of roaming

9/4/09 – Visited Sun Shop Greenhills Shopping Center

paid 3,283.99 = re-connection fee

Signed up for unlimited DATA on phone & received a Sunbroadband SIM

paid 799 x 2 = 1598.00 = 2 months advanced deposit to waive lockout and get unlimited data on both my phone / broadband SIM (or so I thought). I even asked when unlimited would go live on my phone because I knew I would be using the phone more vs the data SIM.

9/5/09 – Broadband SIM goes live I start using both but more the phone vs the broadband SIM in my netbook.

9/9/09 - received system message that my line was nearing credit limit again. called SUN CS was informed everything was ok I was on unlimited DATA & CTU.

9/10/09 – phone get’s disconnected, exceeded credit limit due to high data usage. Called SUN to complain and went to SUN shop Marikina where I was informed that I signed up for a non-existent plan! Had to pay 1651.63 to have my line re-connected again.

9/11/09 – Called SUN CS and complained about the misinformation. I have 3 service request numbers and I am giving them a week or two to investigate and deliberate about my case & request.





Right now the ball is in SUN’s court I have been very patient with all this but I do hope they do something about this. Still IMO among the 3 carriers we have they are the smallest and the least evil. All the reps I have talked to on the phone or face to face have been very polite and apologetic it is their fault after all.

Not to be boastful but I think I am a good customer. I pay on time and always pay in full. I only complain when something is wrong. In this case something is VERY VERY VERY WRONG. Again I would like to stress that it is unclear if the up sell was done intentionally or was done in ignorance but the up sell did occur.

I feel cheated because I was up sold to an non-existent plan, I double checked to ask if I would get unlimited data on my phone and they said YES, thereby misleading me to incur data charges (exceeding my credit limit in 5 days!!!) getting disconnected again, then being told my plan did not exist and was not technically possible only to find out they have a plan specifically with what I want except for a few things (handset/lockout). I have a request to waive the handset and shorten the lockout on a SIM only plan which right now isn’t offered. Honestly with all the CRAP they have put me through (intentional or otherwise) I think I deserved a little break and  some concessions from them. I’d be happy with Call & Surf Unlimited, No handset, 6 months (max 12 months) lockout, for 999 a month.


I hope more people request for the SIM only plan. SERIOUSLY who has heard of the ZTE F188 before visiting this site?


  1. Medyo nakakainis nga. I hope they approve my request though I think it's the least they could do.

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…
