Umniah Launches New Voice SMS Service to Palestine
Jordan’s pioneering provider of telecommunication services, Umniah, recently announced the launch of its innovative International Voice Short Message service (SMS) to Palestine.
Granting its subscribers the opportunity to send voice SMS messages to relatives and friends living in Palestine, Umniah is now strengthening its position as a provider of services that match the varied needs of modern times. Through this innovative service, Umniah subscribers have the opportunity to record a 30-second voice SMS and send it to their relatives and friends in Palestine who are subscribers of Jawal GSM Operator.
This SMS will be sent as a multimedia message (MMS) to the Jawal subscriber who in turn will be able to listen to the voice message. The senders need to dial (*) before the number requested. And they may start recording their message after the tone. The price of each voice SMS is 10 piaster’s only with no additional subscription fees required.
This new service targets sectors of the community who would otherwise find it challenging to send regular SMS messages. Proving to be especially convenient to senior citizens, this service reiterates Umniah’s ongoing quest to introduce new, convenient and innovative means of communication to both local and regional market sectors.
Umniah’s VAS and Roaming Manager Mr. Mohammad Serieh, stated that the company is thrilled to be launching this new service.
“Being the first in the region to launch the Voice SMS solution, we are proud to be presenting our subscribers this innovative new mean of communication with their relatives and friends in Palestine. We have found that the voice SMS presents itself as the more expressive means of communication especially for those sectors of the community who would otherwise find it challenging to type text messages and read them. For the traveler this service quenches the feelings of nostalgia as it allows him or her to hear the voices of loved ones,” he explained
Mr. Serieh further added that Umniah constantly strives to fuel the market with pioneering means of communication, and he further affirmed that this isn’t the first innovative service that Umniah has launched nor will it be its last.
