I like using mobile apps for finding hotels and flights, editing my Instagram photos, VPN (for secure Wi-Fi connection), playing games, reading news and blogs and whatnot. Now problem is, I don’t have a credit card (and for security reasons, I refuse to use my debit card for online transactions), so I feel lost when I want to upgrade to elite plan or purchasing in-app products. A few days ago, I was delighted to learnthat I can now use my Suncellular Postpaid account when making a purchase on Google Play! Yes, if you are an Android user, you too can now use your Suncellular prepaid load or Suncellular Postpaid to buy apps and make in-app purchases!
