Qtel's Hala launches mobile airtime credit transfers

Tuesday 27 June 2006 | 14:12 CET | News
Qtel's Hala customers can now transfer airtime credit to any other Hala customer through the new Credit Transfer service. The service is pre-activated for all Hala customers at no additional subscription fees. "Now any Hala customer has the convenience to top-up the Hala credit balance of a friend or a loved one, either in case of emergency or as a gift," said Sh. Fahad Bin Jassim Al Thani, Executive Director of Wireless. "Qtel's Marketing team works with all our customers to develop ways in which we can better meet their communications needs. As a result, the team developed the Credit Transfer service to enhance Hala customers' experience. The service is exceptionally convenient to Hala customers roaming abroad as now any Hala customer can transfer airtime credit to a friend abroad." To use the Credit Transfer service, a Hala customer must enter *130*recipient's mobile number*amount# and then press OK. Qtel will then send a message to the customer to confirm the details of the transfer. Upon customer's confirmation, the transfer will be completed. The customer will then receive another message confirming the success of the transfer. Instantly, the recipient will be credited with the transferred amount, and receive a message indicating the amount of money transferred to his/her credit balance, with the sender's mobile number. Each successful transaction will cost QR 0.50, which will be deducted from the sender's credit balance. Through the Credit Transfer service, any Hala customer can transfer a minimum of QR 10 or any amount in QR 1.00 increments and a maximum of QR 1000. For example, QR 24, QR 158, QR 63. The amount transferred cannot include any decimals (i.e. Dirhams). There is no limit on maximum number of transfers.
