    Vodacom Doubles SMS for Hearing Impaired

    Vodacom has announced a new offer for hearing impaired customers who will now receive double the value on every SMS bundle purchased. This offer is now available to Vodacom Contract, Top Up and Prepaid customers.

    Customers with hearing impairments use SMS as their preferred channel of communication and Vodacom has decided to offer these customers more value to help them stay connected. With this new permanent price offer, customers who purchase an SMS bundle will receive an additional SMS bundle at no extra cost.

    Vodacom’s Hearing Impaired specific SMS bundle pricing is as follows:

    Standard SMS bundle for Vodacom customers

    *New SMS bundle for Vodacom hearing impaired customers

    To qualify for the free bundle, hearing impaired customers should download and complete the application form from one the following websites:

    -       Vodacom -  http://www.vodacom.co.za/personal/main/specificneeds/hearingimpaired

    -       National Institute for the Deaf - http://www.deafnet.co.za/headoffice/who.html

    -       Deafsa -  http://www.deafsa.co.za

    -       Customers can also send an SMS to 12580 and include their fax number or e-mail address where the application form can be forwarded to.

    While this is a good move by Vodacom, we cannot help but think they could have added even more to these bundles.
