Gone are the days when you had to spend a fortune in phone bills or on mobile internet fees to keep in touch with friends and family around the world. There is now a single service that integrates all the popular web chat platforms and makes it a snap to send messages and chat on any phone model worldwide.
Sun Cellular started a service called Sun iMessenger, and it was launched in 2006 . And it’s possible to communicate with anyone from anywhere in the world, as long as they’re a Sun mobile subscriber. To do this, SunIM uses the text messaging feature of a phone, translating mobile chat into text messages seamlessly, and giving regular cellular phone users access to a service that would usually only be available to people with smart phones.
The service also allows you to send messages using your laptop, smart phone, or computer. It integrates several platforms: Yahoo Messenger, Facebook chat, MSN, AIM, ICQ, and, just recently, Gmail chat, making all your accounts available to you on one sign-in page. It is, to date, the only platform to do so.
Getting SUNiM service on your phone cannot be simpler. There’s nothing that you need to download and install, and there are no complicated codes to punch in. All a user has to do is to text SUNiM to 2746 from a phone using a Sun Cellular sim card. After a few minutes, you will receive clear, step-by-step instructions to help you get started.
SUNiM is also very affordable. To celebrate the first day of your SUNiM subscription, the first 24 hours will be completely free of charge. To top it off, if you invite your friends to use Sun iMessenger, you can also get free internet hours. For regular text replies, Sun iM only charges P 0.50, even less than a regular text message. But if you’d like to stay connected all day, there’s an option that gives you unlimited access for 24 hours, for only P20! Other payment options are P100 for seven days and P300 for a month. There are no hidden charges or extra fees, as users are charged only for messages that they reply to or for the time that they buy. Because of this, Sun iM is currently the most cost-effective chat mobile service available.
With Sun iM, you don’t have to wait in front of a computer to catch messages, or spend so much to send and receive them. It’s easy to use, very affordable, and best of all, it allows you to be reached anytime of the day, anywhere you are, through your choice of platform. It’s the ultimate
