Dubai-based telecoms operator du is offering a 15-day free trial of the BOT-IM and C’me apps when customers subscribe to the company's internet calling pack service.
du said it is offering those separated by distance even more ways to get in touch this summer with the new offer.
After subscribing, du customers can download one of the two apps from the iOS or Play Store and register their mobile number to start enjoying the limited time offer.
Amr Aldesouky, executive vice president- consumer business at du, said: “While texts and instant messages are convenient ways to communicate, nothing beats the feeling that comes with seeing a loved one and hearing their voice.
"This free trial period will encourage those who have not tried du’s Internet Calling Pack to explore the benefits of the service and find out how it can change the way they communicate with friends and family around the world.”
du customers with a prepaid or a postpaid line can subscribe to the new service by texting the keyword ICP to 1012.
Customers who continue to use the service after the 15-day free trial will be charged the standard service charge.
