I caught up with an Econet Public Relations personnel online last night who informed me that the affected services are:
• WhatsApp and
• Opera Mini only.
All users are, therefore, advised to top up (buy bundles) before then to avoid disappointment during the system upgrade period.
However, the largest mobile operator in Zimbabwe, by client-base, says the highly-active services will still be active and connectivity uninterrupted.
Econet’s unsolicited bulk SMS’s have become somewhat monotonous and redundant to me as I have to expect yet another un-amazing something each day from the mobile operator. But besides the birthday message I received some two weeks ago, this time the message was definitely helpful and worth sharing.
So, there you have it..
