Local cellular operator Vodacom has announced its new power hour promotion, which offers the network’s prepaid customers 60 minutes of talk time for only R5.

This hour of talk time can be used on the day of purchase between 06:00 and 18:00 on weekdays, while the promotion is available from 2 July to 31 July 2012. Clients are not limited to a single call, as they are able to use the 60 minutes total to make multiple phone calls to friends and family. The power hour promotion will be available on all prepaid price plans.

Prepaid customers who have been active on the Vodacom network for at least 30 days and have over R5 in their prepaid wallet, can dial *111# on their mobile phones. Then, they have to select Vodacom power hour and follow the prompts to activate 60 minutes power hour talk time for the day. This can only be done once per day, and power hour minutes can only be used within the times period mentioned above, to make calls to other Vodacom customers.

“With this incredible offer, our customers can chat to other Vodacom customers and get real value for money,” explained Enzo Scarcella, managing executive of marketing at Vodacom.

Scarcella added, “If customers activate power hour for five days, they will score up to five hours of talk time to use during peak hours. These are some of the fantastic benefits for being part of the Vodacom family.”

In related news, Vodacom and RIM also recently announced that Vodacom customers in South Africa are now able to purchase apps on BlackBerry App World, by charging the transaction directly to their contract or prepaid account.
