Vodacom have announced a new bolt-on addition to their pre-paid packages called My5. My5 is a new addition which is an evolution of Vodacom’s Power Hour promotion and will see pre-paid Vodacom users nominating five friends. Users will be able to call these friends for a combined total of up to 60 minutes, free of charge.
There are also additional plans which give users unlimited messages to any network as well as 20MB of data on Vodacom’s network. However, it seems that these packages are only valid until just prior to midnight on the day that they have been purchased. The bundles and pricing are as follows:
Price (incl VAT)
My 5 Talk
My 5 Talk & Text
My 5 Talk, Text & 20MB
Vodacom’s Consumer Business Unit Chief Office Phil Patel said in a statement “The idea is for our Prepaid customer to choose 5 people that they interact with more frequently and register them on the My5 service so they can enjoy the benefit of talking to them for a full hour any time of day. The most exciting part is that this is not a promotion but a permanent value added service on two of our popular Prepaid price plans: Vodacom4Less and Daily Free Calls. With this offer, we’re living up to our promise of giving our customers guaranteed free benefits from Vodacom Free4Sho.”
Users can add Vodacom contacts to their My5 packages by dialling *111*5# on the keypads on their phones and selecting the correct option. My5 bundles can be purchased using the same method.
