PS it works on me 👍


Thanks dito. Pano ba malalaman kapag blocked na ang sim mo?
Blocked Sun Sim usually can't connect to internet. The common reason for sim block is heavy downloading on your data plan or bypassing connection through excess usage of VPN or proxy with almost 2GB + of download. Like Smart, Sun Cellular also implements Fair Usage Policy, a daily limit of 1.5GB for Prepaid users.
