Yay! Hubby has a new phone. It is an Alcatel One Touch Glory 918N. He got the phone almost free from Sun Cellular when he renewed his 350 UnliCall and UnliText Sun-to-Sun post paid plan. I say “almost” because there was a one-time payment of Php 500, otherwise the plan will be upgraded to Php 450.
Hubby was actually eyeing for Samsung Galaxy Y. This phone was included in the list of free phones for plan 350 last January. Unfortunately, the phone was not offered for early renewal and our plan just ended last April 17. But when hubby checked again with Sun Cellular last February, the phone was no longer offered for plan 350 UnliCall and Unlitext. The phone was already in the Php 450 phone line up. Hubby was disappointed. Instead of upgrading our plan, he decided to get the Samsung phone with dual sim when our plan expired.
When we visited the Sun Cellular business center to renew our plan, Hubby noticed the Alcatel One Touch Glory 918N among one of the phones in Php 450 plan but also available for Php 350 with Php 500 cash out. He immediately checked the specifications and compared it to Samsung Galaxy Y. When he realized that there is just little difference, he decided to avail the phone. The phone comes with free screen protector and 2GB memory card. So now, hubby has another time-waster gadget to play with.
