Zain Nigeria customers, who are traveling to Saudi Arabia for this year’s Holy pilgrimage will  be  able  to  keep  in  touch with friends and family members at very affordable rates, using their regular Zain lines.

Unlike  the  usual roaming service where customers are billed for receiving calls,  under this special package, Zain customers in Saudi Arabia will not be  charged  for receiving calls and they will have the rare opportunity to make  local  calls  in  Saudi  Arabia  at  local rates just as they will be charged  normal  rates  for  sending SMS (Short Message Service). Also, the tariff for calls from Saudi Arabia to Nigeria has been heavily discounted.

This  exciting  offer is made possible by the Zain’s revolutionary package, One Network, the world’s first borderless mobile service enabling customers when  abroad to receive calls and text messages without roaming charges and to  make  voice  and  data calls at local rates throughout 24  countries in Africa and the Middle East.

Speaking  on  the  offer, Zain Nigeria’s Marketing Director, Mostafa Younes said  several  Nigerians  traveling to Saudi Arabia will be able to stay in touch  with  friends,  business associates and family members without going through the rigours of applying for roaming activation.

According  to  Younes,  “with the One Network service, our customers do not need  to change their SIM card or purchase another line when they travel to Saudi  Arabia  for  the  pilgrimage.  They will be able to make and receive
calls;  send  and  receive SMS and browse the internet at local Saudi rates and  recharge  with  local  Zain  recharge  cards available widely in Saudi Arabia.

“We  are  happy  that  our  customers  can stay in touch with their family, friends  and  business  associates  in  several  places  across  the  globe including  Saudi Arabia. Customers do not have to make any deposit with the
company  before  they can use the service. Indeed, access to the service is hassle-free  as  the  customer  does  not  have  to  pay registration fees, complete  registration  forms  or have their SIM card specially provisioned before access to the service can be granted.”
