MTN started this idea of registring a special number on your line. You are allowed to add someone as your special number and that party also accepts your request. The party initiating the connection pays a one time fee per for the particular month and you can call each other at no additional cost for that month.
Now etisalat Nigeria is introducing this again to her customers but in another dimension. It is called etisalat You & Me.
Etisalat You & Me allows easy starter customers enjoy “free credit” every week to call a loved one’s etisalat number anytime (not available to easy click).
As an Easy Starter customers, you can benefit from 2 these 2 options: the N100 and N200 variants.
HOW TO REGISTER:
To register that special Etisalat number by dialing *233*1*etisalat number#,
Recharge with a minimum of N100 weekly to get the additional N100 “free credit” for the N100 variant
Recharge with at least N200 weekly to get additional “free credit” in the N200 variant.
You will get N100 “free credit” during the week you recharge N100 and if your recharge up to N200, you get N300 “free credit”. The credit can only be used to call the registered You & Me number. Validity period for the N300 credit is 7days.
I consider this as just a mean to get you to recharge more.
They now make it look good by saying that you will enjoy up to N1200 “free credit” every month by recharging with a minimum of N200 per week. It’s like stating the obvious to me. You get N300 for recharging N200. Multiply the two numbers by 4.
IMPORTANT CODES TO KNOW ABOUT:
To add a number, dial *233*1*etisalat-number#
To remove a number from the You & Me service at any time you choose, dial *233*2* the etisalat number#
To check if you registered a number as a You & Me number, dial *233#
To check your bonus airtime balance, dial *232# and an SMS notification will be sent informing you of the bonus airtime balance remaining.
FACTS YOU MUST NOTE:
First registration of your ‘You & Me’ number is free.
Every subsequent replacement attracts a charge of N50.
Available ‘You & Me’ free seconds cannot be used to accept Receiver Pays calls from the registered ‘You & Me’ number.
This service is open to only Easy Starter subscribers.
I think the MTN idea is way better than this one from etisalat. No contest. I think MTN stopped that too because the felt it wasn’t profitable for them. This will be proftable for etisalat.
