Embrace the new school year with Sun


With kids these days, you never know where their priorities lie, and as parents, it is your job to ensure that they focus on the things that are really important. No, we’re not talking about his favorite athlete or her favorite actress. We’re talking about their education.

Of course, your child focusing on his studies can only get him so far, and with the world being as dynamic as it is today, he needs all the help he can get. Yes, making him drink all those brain-enhancing milk might help, but there is always something that can make his education all the more worth it.

Like getting him connected.

Sun Cellular is a company that specializes on this “getting connected” stuff. With that, here are a few tips to ensure that your student makes the most out of his education.

Maybe you should start by…

1. Getting him a POSTPAID line that fits his needs

Students love group projects; they foster camaraderie among students by making them, well, do group projects for maybe 5 minutes and then having a nice chat for 5 hours afterwards.

In every group project, there will always be someone who relies too much on his awesome classmates (such as your kid) and simply provide “moral support” at the comfort of his home. In this kind of situation, there is simply nothing you can do.

Or is there?


Of course! Get him Sun Cellular’s Plan 450 that comes with a FREE Alcatel Glory X918N, that’s what Sun Postpaid Plan 450 gives you unlimited Sun calls and texts, 250 texts to other networks, and a P100 consumable amount which can be used for IDD or 20 hours of internet. Also, the Alcatel Glory X918N that you may choose to get for this plan is powered by the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, which means that he has a multitude of options to contact his lost classmate in any communication channel, even if the said classmate decides to hide outside of the country!

While we’re at it, let’s talk about research. As some of you guys know, encyclopedias are out, and Google is in. If you, like the generation after yours, think that the internet is the “in” thing right now, maybe you should…

2. Get the best BROADBAND INTERNET service in the market

3. The Best Prepaid Unlimited Service!

Some of us really prefer prepaid. After all, with prepaid, you have better control of your communication spending. However, the same thing could also gloriously blow up right in your face.
