When it rains, it pours, or so the saying goes. For Dr. Juan Javier
"Jombi” Lichauco, this tenet cannot be more true than the day he was
formally recognized as the 1 millionth postpaid subscriber of Sun
Dr. Juan Javier
Indeed, there is luck in numbers, and combined with the right
timing, the sun truly shone brightly for the 42-year-old internal
medicine and rheumatology physician from St. Luke’s Medical Center.
Aside from bringing home the coolest gadgets as gifts from Sun
Cellular, his name will forever be etched in the mobile phone network’s
"I know that nothing happens by coincidence but it’s always a
pleasant surprise… I didn’t think that this will be such a big event,”
he enthused, referring to the recognition ceremony given in his honor.
"I knew that this was a company milestone; but the reception they gave
was more than what I had expected,” Dr. Lichauco can only express in
Prior to his personal postpaid line application that made him
the one millionth postpaid subscriber, Dr. Lichauco was already using
Sun courtesy of St. Luke’s Medical Center’s corporate account with Sun
Cellular . "I’ve been using it for six (6) years. But as I got busier, I
needed more phones to use for my medical practice and farming
business,” explained the 42-year-old doctor. This was why he applied for
3 subscriptions of Sun Plan 350. "I think the two most important things
in communication are reliability and affordability. Those are the
reasons why I use Sun.”
WELCOME TO THE SUN CELLULAR FAMILY
Dr. Lichauco was officially welcomed to the Sun family during an
awarding ceremony at The Sun Shop Robinsins Galleria led by no less
than JG Summit Chairman and CEO Mr. James L. Go, Sun Cellular Business
Unit CEO Mr. Charles Lim and other Sun Cellular executives, Sun Cellular
VP for Postpaid/ New Business Mr. Ricky Peña, Sun Cellular VP for CRM
Mr. Reuben Pangan, Sun Cellular VP for Retail Management Mr. Faraday Go,
and Sun Cellular AVP for Postpaid Acquisition Ms. Neph Denosta. He was
overjoyed with the warm reception and the tokens he bagged for the
unique distinction of being the 1 millionth postpaid subscriber:
BlackBerry Bold 9700 handset, an HP Mini 110 Netbook, a Huawei ETS 3023,
three (3) Fixed Load Plans plus two years worth of free Sun Cellular
services such as Sun BlackBerry Add-On plan, Sun Broadband Wireless,
SunTel wireless landline, and P1000 worth of Sun Cellular prepaid
products. Indeed, how lucky can one get?
Dr. Lichauco, his parents and sister-in-law were then treated to
a sumptuous Chinese luncheon reception at the Xin Tian Di, Crowne Plaza
Galleria Manila where another surprise awaited them- the personal
appearance of celebrity endorser Aga Muhlach.
THE 24/7 DOCTOR RELIES ON 24/7 CTU
Dr. Lichauco makes himself available especially to his patients.
For him, accessibility is very important whatever time of the day it
is, wherever he may be. "You cannot help it when patients call
in-between your clinical practice.” This, he said, is what makes Sun
Cellular’s 24/7 Call and Text Unlimited (CTU) very important.
When asked if he shares his mobile phone number, Dr. Lichauco
said that he gives out his professional contact number to his patients.
"Yes, I do, especially to those who have serious medical problems and
also for patients who are based outside of Manila,” he explains.
SUN CELLULAR HITS 1M POSTPAID SUBSCRIBERS
Sun Cellular celebrated another milestone in its history as it
is the first in the country to hit the one million subscribers for
postpaid. This feat proved that Sun is the people’s choice in postpaid
mobile phone service. For the third consecutive year, up to seven out of
10 new postpaid subscribers choose Sun Cellular.
Sun Cellular’s Business Unit CEO Mr. Charles Lim credits this
achievement to Sun’s unmatched unlimited service and rates. Both of
these are possible because Sun’s network uses the latest technology
available. "We can meet peak load demand without congestion. We got the
latest and the best infrastructure, and are offering rates that could
reduce a subscriber’s cost anywhere from 40 to 80 percent per month,” he
