A device that has had a great welcome by Nokia and its fans, is available with 8ta a contract price of R100*24 months. This full QWERTY keyboard and messaging device does have a good deal, most of the times with 8ta you receive 50 free SMSs for that day if you send 5 SMSs that day.
There isn’t much detail about the deal on the website but I do recommend acquiring this device, it just all depends on what you are going to use it for and what you expect it to do. The purpose of this device is to bring social networks to your palm.
8ta has launched many deals of which they also have reward cards, One of those good deals is of the HTC Wildfire where you receive a R1000 reward card. With the deal, you can call 1 Telkom number for free and also send 5 SMSs per day then still receive 50 free more SMSs for that day.
You also get 130 free minutes 8ta to 8ta and 30 free minutes to other local South African numbers. There’s more to the deal, you also receive 25MB free data and the SIM connection as well as the card is free. This contract is valued at R130 for 2 years, this deal is worth it and cheaper then buying a prepaid HTC Wildfire device in the market.
