Visafone introduces midnight calls

Nigeria’s leading Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) operators, Visafone Communications Limited, has introduced midnight calls on the network, tagged Visa Chill.

According to Mr. Tolu Ogunlesi of Corporate Communications, Visafone, this is another way for operator to further appreciate its customers nationwide.

He explained that Visa Chill is a new package that offers Visafone subscribers the opportunity to make free midnight calls between the hours of 12am and 4.30am every day.

“Visa Chill is the latest in an impressive list of ‘firsts’ that the company has rolled out since inception,” he said, stressing that by being the first CDMA operator to launch free midnight calls for its subscribers, Visafone has once again demonstrated the pioneering spirit that has consistently drawn praise and accolades from analysts and industry experts over the last 12 months of its operation.

Ogunlesi also said that to migrate to Visa Chill, all subscribers have to do is dial a short code (*444*116#).

“An SMS confirmation will be received if the migration is successful. Subscribers are expected to use a minimum of N60 daily in order to be able to enjoy the free midnight calls,” he declared.

Additionally, he said, with Visa Chill the company has also unveiled a brand new promo, ‘Visafone Fortunes,’ coming in less than two months after the grand finale of its widely acclaimed ’12 cars in 12 weeks’ bonanza.

The promo, he said, will run for eight weeks, that is, from February 17 through April 17, 2009.

During this period, he said, “100 subscribers will stand the chance to win N100,000 each and there will be four draws during that period, at which the winners will be selected.”

Existing subscribers, Ogunlesi said, would need to recharge a minimum of N500.00 in a week to qualify for the draws, while new subscribers need only to buy and activate a new Visafone handset and line.

ITRealms Online recalls that Visafone launched commercial operations on February 22, 2008 in 12 states and over 100 cities.

“We have since grown in coverage area to 22 states and over 170 cities in the last 12 months in fulfillment of its promise to provide Nigerians with a veritable ‘passport to reach the world,’” he said.
