Telecom Mobile Customers Can Now Text To 029

Telecom Mobile Limited today launched its new service that allows text messages to be sent from Telecom mobile phones to 029 numbers.

An advertising campaign is currently underway promoting the ability to send text messages from Telecom mobile phones to 021 numbers and as a result of the positive customer response this capability has now been extended to 029 numbers.

“The Telecom to 021 and now to 029 text messaging capability we have in place is an interim solution, and is working well. We know how popular text messaging is and so are hopeful we can reach an agreement with Vodafone that will enable customers to text freely between networks without having to rely on the Internet.”

As the Telecom to 021 and 029 messages are currently being sent via the Internet Telecom recommends customers make a voice cellular call for any urgent or critical messages.
