Facebook Zero on Android

I’ve been asked by some people on how to access facebook for free on their android mobile phone in the Philippines. Well, you can do this if you have a Sun cellular sim card, using a service called facebook zero.

I did this on my Cherry Mobile Nova, but basically all android phones have similar settings screen.

Facebook Zero is a service by Sun Cellular offered to its subscribers to access the popular social networking site for free (by now). Let us see how to configure this currently free service for android devices.

We need to make sure that the Sun wap APN is configured on the Settings->Wireless & Networks->Mobile network Settings->Access Point Names as shown below:

If its not created yet, let us create a new APN called “Sun GPRS” (screenshot below shows the important settings used for this wap service):

Select this APN for use and on the previous screen, enable Data:

This will let android connect to the wap service. Let us now open the default android browser and type in “0.facebook.com”:

If successful, you will now connect through the browser (through wap) to facebook for FREE. Happy surfing!

The default browser of CM Flare (Opera Mini) doesn’t like Facebook zero. If you want facebook zero working, install the Dolphin Browser App from Google Play. Screenshot of CM Flare running Facebook Zero in Dolphin shown below:

    Guys can you help me? i confused , i activated gprs settings on myphone a888 the first message says that i have already activated the gprs then another message from 202 says that they cant set my handset settings, so i tried it manually i see instructions from sun cellular site they dont have instructions for a888 but they have for a919 , so since a919 and a888 are the closest phone settings i followed the instruction , im confused they said i should choose sun minternet, so i tried and i turned data connection on but still no connection then i tried sun gprs still it has no connection… do i missing something?
