Personal Information :
The Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters is a professional basketball team in Philippine Basketball Association.
The team was first owned by Pepsi Philippines of Luis Francisco R. Lorenzo and was granted an expansion franchise prior to the 1990 PBA season. The Pepsi Bottlers also used the names 7-Up Bottlers and Pepsi Mega Hotshots in their campaigns, netting no championships.
In 1996, telecommunications company Pilipino Telephone Corporation bought the franchise and has since owned the team. After the franchise was bought, it was then renamed to the Mobiline Cellulars and later the Mobiline Phone Pals which won the special 1998 PBA Centennial Cup. After Piltel became an MVNO in April 2000, the team was again renamed in 2001, this time as the Talk 'N Text Phone Pals, after a prepaid cellular phone service. They have since won two titles and remains as one of the league's powerhouses. In 2008, the team changed their moniker from Phone Pals to Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters, and in the process winning the team's second championship via the 2008-09 PBA Philippine Cup.
