In a move to help users to conveniently share, save and stay connected with friends, family and business partners, MTN Uganda has launched ContactXchange, a SIM based service to enable its subscribers to share a contact at the touch of a button immediately after a phone call.
ContactXchange can be used to send and receive contact details to and from any mobile phone and is activated through the MTN Menu.
“The key message here is convenience for our customers. MTN Uganda is keen on developing products and services which add value to the lives of customers,” says MTN Uganda’s Chief Marketing Officer Ernst Fonternel. “In the ever fast paced world we live in, it is our role to come up with time saving and yet cost effective solutions that help our customers achieve their goals.”
The service is simple to use. A users goes to the MTN menu on their phone, selects ContactXchange then simply send your information. For local contacts, MTN charges UGX 200/- while sharing contacts with a friend on an international network is 450/- while recipients add their friend’s contact information directly into their phonebook for free. MTN Uganda has over 8.8 million subscribers across the country.
