IN response to the current economic slump, Samart Communications has announced a
new package of discounts for customers. For new phone purchasers, the company will
offer either an 80 percent discount off local calls or an exemption from paying the
monthly service fees, according to a press release.
For existing customers, the mobile phone company is offering trade-ins on old handsets
for new Ericson 328 models for $333, which includes accessories and a warranty.
The company is also starting a point-per-dollar-spent program whereby customers will
receive free gifts with 100 points required for the initial gift. Moreover, the press
release says, local calls between 9pm and 6am will now cost only 12 cents per minute.
As well, Samart is about to launch a Mobile Clinic which will visit customers at
their home or office for telephone repairs so that trips to the Samart headquarters
in Phnom Penh will not be necessary.
