Viva, Wataniya and Zain – Free Incoming Calls!

h741

Pick up that land-line phone and call me.

Finally, with the arrival of the 3rd Telecom Operator in Kuwait (Viva), the consumers are finally getting the benefit. All three operators have announced free incoming calls today (technically, Viva is yet to announce it). To my knowledge, this covers both international and local incoming calls. That’s pretty big news and people have been waiting for this for a long, long time.

I guess we owe it to Viva to revitalize the competition in this market. Happy call-receiving everybody!

Now I wonder if they are going to put a charge on outgoing local calls in Kuwait other than the yearly fixed amout of K.D.30. If not, then this is very surprising news indeed.

Sources for this news

Wataniya – I received the SMS myself.

Zain – Its all over the media.

Viva – Its not announced yet but this is the insider news so far and it makes sense too.

    I picked up my landline and dialed but it said, wrong number… lol

    Absolutely amazing, according to me it’s the liberation of Kuwait in communication and a great gift of Eid for expatriates as well.

    Sajjad: Lol, maybe that’s how they will make it free, you simply can’t call cell phones from the landline. πŸ˜€

    Yeah, its certainly amazing and rightfully called ‘the new era in telecom in Kuwait’.

    Lol, you didn’t get me. My response “I picked up my landline and dialed but it said, wrong number” was in reply to your sentence “ck up that land-line phone and call me.”

    Well, yes its new era of communication in Kuwait. Not only we can receive free incoming calls but also I can make outgoing calls from mobile now for 50 fills but off course not using Wataniya but callback service πŸ˜› because incoming is free na πŸ˜‰
