Some Android phone users are getting some difficulty accessing the free version of Facebook for mobile. I’ve been using Samsung Punch for Facebook zero on a Sun Cellular network, and am not getting any problems aside from the slow connection of course.
Now that I got the new Samsung Galaxy Y Young that is running on Android, I also got some problems connecting to Facebook zero. I don’t know if anyone has done this, I accessed the mobile site using the this URL m.facebook.com and its working fine but it I know that it will cost me for the data charges. Then I add a number zero after the m and it worked, so I’m sharing this to you guys if your having the same issues. Here is the URL for reference and to avoid confusion.
This would probably work on any Android smart phones like iPhone using a browser, it won’t work using the Facebook app for Android. Although it connect using Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) of Sun Cellular, Smart subscribers can also try this out.
You can now connect with your friends on Facebook using Sun Cellular WAP service on your mobile phones. Facebook collaborated with mobile operators around the world, people can access 0.facebook.com without data charges. This Includes all the standard features, users can update their status, view their News Feed, like or comment on posts, send and reply to messages, or write on their friends’ Wall just as they do on Facebook.com. They made it FAST and FREE so grab that phone and follow this steps.
- Activate your GPRS and configure your handset by texting activate to 2300 for FREE.
- Choose Sun WAP as your access point.
- Go to http://wap.suncellular.com.ph and click the Facebook Zero link.
Facebook Zero is a free text-only mobile version of Facebook. Standard browsing rates of Php10 for 30 minutes will apply when viewing photos or external links. Prepaid users is not required to have any maintaining balance to use the service. If you have any questions you can call the customer service by dialing 200 to your Sun mobile phone or their hotline (02) 395-800. Though I find the website http://www.suncellular.com.ph usability a bit disappointing as I have to wait for the slideshow and hit the print screen button just to read the instructions.
