Text Filipino seafarers for only P2 with Sun Cellular’s newest service

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Sun Cellular proudly introduces its newest international service designed for Filipino seafarers and their families in the Philippines. Dubbed as "SMSCrewMail", seafarers are given free CrewMail accounts via Sun SMSCrewMail cards. This service allows them to send and receive text messages to and from Sun Cellular subscribers. With SMSCrewMail, seafarers will be charged at very affordable rates when they send text messages to Sun subscribers. Replying to seafarers will cost only P2 per text for both prepaid and postpaid Sun users. With this new service, Sun Cellular subscribers can keep in touch anytime with their friends or loved ones who are seafarers. Sun users can text HELP to 2294 for more information about SMSCrewMail.
The company is partnering with SMS Global to provide a 2-way text messaging service between seafarers and Sun subscribers in the Philippines. SMS Global is a Hong Kong-based company that provides ship-to-shore and shore-to-ship communication for seafarers using its SMSCrewMail system. 

The company has agreements with maritime agencies that make up 75% of the world market. Arnt Grande Pettersen, CEO of SMS Global, says "We are pleased in collaborating with Sun Cellular to provide a very affordable and effective way for Filipino seafarers and their family members in the Philippines to communicate."
