Airtel Ghana says it is giving customers and prospective customers interested in owning a Samsung Galaxy S4 or Blackberry Z10 handset 250minutes free voice calls to all local networks and 750MB of data a month for a period of three months from the day of purchase.

Head of Corporate Communications & External Affairs at Airtel Ghana, Donald Gwira told Adom Business the handset would be sold to customers at the existing market price, so the additional value comes at no cost to the user so long as they stay on Airtel.

“The S4 and Z10 are devices a section of our markets have yearned for and we believe that what we are offering will excite them”, he said.

Gwira added that with the introduction of both phones in all Airtel Shops across the country, Airtel Ghana is positioning itself as the preferred network of use for the new devices from Samsung and BlackBerry.

Meanwhile, Samsung is urging all of its dealers to offer a one year payment plan for the Galaxy S4 to customers, but Gwira said for now the S4 is being distributed on upfront payment terms at GHC1,550, adding that “any changes to this arrangement will be communicated to our customers.”

Marketing Director at Airtel Ghana, Ashish Malhotra also noted that the company had always sought to offer customers exciting deals, adding: “We know that Samsung and BlackBerry are among the favorite handsets of our customers and so we are offering them and especially new customers, what they crave for.”

Malhotra said Airtel expects new customers to jump aboard the network for a great experience as quality phones work better on a quality network.
