THREE LUCKY RESIDENTS WIN BLACKBERRY SMARTPHONES FROM DIGICEL
Monday, 2 November 2009 – Road Town, Tortola: It really pays to switch to Digicel!
That was the sentiment of three lucky residents this morning as they walked away with new BlackBerry Gemini 8520 Smartphones compliments Digicel, The Bigger, Better Network.
Anna Rosario sailed over to Tortola from the sister island of Anegada to receive her prize. She joined Barbara Richards of East End and Wayne Todman of Horsepath at the Digicel Flagship Store for the moment of celebration.
The three lucky winners took part in a Digicel promotion that ran for the entire month of September, where subscribers who topped up $20 or more or subscribed to Digicel’s $49 Caribbean Plan during September became eligible to win the new phones. Rosario, Richards and Todman were selected from a pool of hundreds of subscribers who met the criteria.
“I work at a store in Anegada that does Digicel Top Up, so I top up all the time, but I didn’t think I would win because I always say I never win anything with these competitions,” Rosario said. “So, when Digicel called me to say I won, I was so excited that I started telling everybody on Anegada that I won a Digicel BlackBerry. Thank you Digicel!”
Richards and Todman have been taking advantage of the $49 Caribbean Plan, which was introduced in June. They have reported that they find it very cost effective to make calls to their friends, family and business associates overseas, especially in Jamaica. By topping up $49 a month, subscribers can call unlimited to any Digicel number in the Caribbean (except Antigua and Guyana) and also to Central America.
“I would like to congratulate Anna, Barbara and Wayne for being Digicel customers and subsequently winning new BlackBerry phones,” stated Digicel’s Marketing Executive Angela Burns. “You have to be in it to win it, as the saying goes, so I would encourage everyone to switch to Digicel today to benefit from the great plans we have come up with to give you the best value for your money.”
With the latest Digicel offer, introduced on October 23, subscribers can call any number any time in the BVI for the best value rate of 17 cents per minute, by simply topping up $20 per month.
