Globacom says it has introduced a mobile phone caller ring back tune that alerts Muslims about prayer times.
The service called Glo Adhan alerts anybody who calls the telephone number of a subscriber ten minutes before and ten minutes after the five mandatory prayer times in a day, the mobile phone company says.
“The alert service will come in handy to remind the Muslim faithful of the praying time, thereby helping many of them who are engaged in very busy schedules”, Glo says.
Interested subscribers need to send ‘AZN’ to 7728 or dial *7728*243# to subscribe at the one-off rate of N50 for Adhan service and the standard N100 caller tune monthly subscription charge.
Once signed up, the package would automatically change the ring back tune to call to prayer otherwise called “adhan” at the appropriate time.
“In the spirit of Ramadan which involves giving and sharing, Glo is also running the 200% promo which gives three times value on recharges of N200 and above and data plans of N2,000 and above to enable them stay in touch with family, friends and business associates”, the phone company says.
