Smile customers on unlimited FREE on-net calls only need to connect to a Wi-Fi network when abroad to pay local call rates when calling numbers in Nigeria. The customer can make and receive calls to and from any number in the world.
Also, the customer can make local and international calls at the lowest call rates with MySmile App with voice-only plans and international MySmile App with voice plans.
To do this, the network says one only needs to get a Smile number and is primed to chat for FREE, and “anyone on the service can always enjoy local call rates from wherever he travels to.”
“The FREE eSIM on MySmile App with voice plans ensures unlimited FREE on-net calls with no daily connection fee and no first-minute charge. The additional incentives for the customer include per second billing, as the customer will have to pay for only what is used.
“It offers the lowest local call rate in Nigeria with a range of voice plans. In it, there are no roaming fees when traveling abroad and the customer is obliged to pay local call rates on phoning Nigeria when abroad.
“Vitally, no physical SIM card is required. The customer only needs to download the MySmile App with voice and activate their Smile number to make calls.
“Those desirous of making international calls (through bundle) can call home at local call rates and are assured no hidden charges – no call set-up charge, no daily charge and no first-minute charge.”
According to the network, the offer is open to all Smile customers and prospects in major Nigerian cities, including Kaduna, Lagos, Abuja, Asaba, Onitsha, Ibadan, Port Harcourt and Benin.
