Sun Cellular Launches 0.facebook.com, a Free Way to Access Facebook® on Your Mobile Phone

0.facebook.com is lightweight and optimized for speed; Sun Cellular’s standard data charges do not apply for site

MANILA, Philippines and PALO ALTO, Calif. – June 2010 – Sun Cellular announced the launch of 0.facebook.com.   Sun Cellular is now offering their customers free mobile browsing on the new 0.facebook.com site. By sponsoring 0.facebook.com, Sun Cellular is enabling their customers to stay connected through Facebook with their friends and family from any mobile Web browser using WAP as an access point without incurring any data charges.[1]

Facebook’s 0.facebook.com site is optimized for speed – it is a new faster, lightweight version of Facebook’s mobile site m.facebook.com. The site does not have graphics or photos. Photos posted on Facebook are only one click away from 0.facebook.com. To view a photo a person only needs to click on a link to the photo and they will be prompted that they are leaving 0.facebook.com. Standard data charges of PhP 10/30 minutes will apply when a person leaves 0.facebook.com to view photos.

“The introduction of this new and exciting collaboration with Facebook is in line with Sun’s continuing campaign to provide value added services to both our prepaid and postpaid subscribers who value the importance of constantly being in touch with family and friends all over the world through a social service.  0.facebook.com is consistent with our reputation and stature as the country’s most progressive  telecom network  with pioneering offerings (such as the revolutionary  24/7 Call and Text Unlimited ).  It is true to Sun’s promise of making connectivity all-day, all-night long available, without limits,” said Mr. Francisco Araña III, Vice President for Product Development, International Services, Value Added Services and Innovations.

“We are always looking to work with innovative companies to provide simple and fast mobile access to Facebook across the world,” said Henri Moissinac, Head of Mobile, Facebook. “Thanks to our collaboration with Sun Cellular, people will now be able to access Facebook for free through 0.facebook.com.”

Sun Cellular now offers BlackBerry Service

Digitel and RIM today announced that Sun Cellular is now offering BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) with the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and BlackBerry Curve 8520 to customers in the Philippines.

The BlackBerry Internet Service plans, together with the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphones, will be initially available at select Sun Shops: Robinsons Galleria, Robinsons Metro East, Robinsons Manila, TriNoma, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Park Square, SM Marilao, SM Megamall, Festival Mall, SM North EDSA, SM Cebu and Ayala Cebu. Availability will also soon be expanded to all Sun Shops.

I checked the website and the newsroom doesn’t have the details nor the listed postpaid plans include any BlackBerry handset. I am told they have not released how much the BIS postpaid service will be but it should come out anytime soon. Likewise, if you inquire on the listed shops above, you may not get any specific details as well.

More on this as we get details on pricing plans for postpaid and prepaid. Hopefully, it will be cheaper.

Update: Here are the initial details of BlackBerry Plans from Sun Cellular:

  • BB Plan 2500
  • BB Add-on 700
  • BB Add-on 999

BB Add-on Plans are available for the following:

  • Plan 350
  • Plan 600
  • Plan 1000
  • Plan 2000
  • Plan 3500
  • Elite Series Subscribers

*6-month lock-in period for Add-On plans.

BlackBerry Curve 8520 is free at Plan 2500 while BlackBerry Bold 9700 is Php15,000 at Plan 2500.
