Safaricom’s new eTEXTS!

March 17, 2010 1 comment

Coming soon from safaricom is a cool product called eTEXTS. this could be said to be an advanced form of the general SMS.

this service will enable mostly people who dont have internet enabled mobile phones to send and receive emails, chat, update their chat status, and later upon improvement be able to update their facebook status and twitter also.

to enroll for the service,all you need to do is send an sms in the format NAME SPACE EMAIL ADRS and send to 223.

to add a friends adress u send an sms with;

FRIEND’ NAME SPACE FRIEND’S EMAIL ADRS andsend it to 223.

to add a chat adress sent an sms with;

NAME SPACE CHAT SPACE EMAIL ADRS and send to 223.

to add a friend to your chat, send an sms with;

FRIEND’S NAME SPACE CHAT SPACE FRIEND’S EMAIL ADRS and send to 223.

practical example follows below;

1. to add an email adress;-

maajabu kunemaajabu@gmail.com

(send to 223)

2. to add a chat

maajabu chat kunemaajabu@gmail.com

(also send to 223)

sending an email will cost you 3.5bob, same as an sms. a chat msg will cost you 1.5bob.

this is just an introductory price, they will definately go down!

with that safaricom will revolutionise sms and maybe do away with the old fashion.

Hope you enjoy it
