Zain Nigeria customers, who are traveling to Saudi Arabia for this yearâ€™s Holy pilgrimage willÂ beÂ ableÂ toÂ keepÂ inÂ touch with friends and family members at very affordable rates, using their regular Zain lines.
UnlikeÂ theÂ usual roaming service where customers are billed for receiving calls,Â under this special package, Zain customers in Saudi Arabia will not beÂ chargedÂ for receiving calls and they will have the rare opportunity to makeÂ localÂ callsÂ inÂ SaudiÂ ArabiaÂ atÂ local rates just as they will be chargedÂ normalÂ ratesÂ forÂ sending SMS (Short Message Service). Also, the tariff for calls from Saudi Arabia to Nigeria has been heavily discounted.
ThisÂ excitingÂ offer is made possible by the Zainâ€™s revolutionary package, One Network, the worldâ€™s first borderless mobile service enabling customers whenÂ abroad to receive calls and text messages without roaming charges and toÂ makeÂ voiceÂ andÂ data calls at local rates throughout 24Â countries in Africa and the Middle East.

AccordingÂ toÂ Younes,Â â€œwith the One Network service, our customers do not needÂ to change their SIM card or purchase another line when they travel to SaudiÂ ArabiaÂ forÂ theÂ pilgrimage.Â They will be able to make and receive
calls;Â sendÂ andÂ receive SMS and browse the internet at local Saudi rates andÂ rechargeÂ withÂ localÂ ZainÂ rechargeÂ cards available widely in Saudi Arabia.
â€œWeÂ areÂ happyÂ thatÂ ourÂ customersÂ can stay in touch with their family, friendsÂ andÂ businessÂ associatesÂ inÂ severalÂ placesÂ acrossÂ theÂ globe includingÂ Saudi Arabia. Customers do not have to make any deposit with the
companyÂ beforeÂ they can use the service. Indeed, access to the service is hassle-freeÂ asÂ theÂ customerÂ doesÂ notÂ haveÂ toÂ pay registration fees, completeÂ registrationÂ formsÂ or have their SIM card specially provisioned before access to the service can be granted.â€
