Smart Overview is even available with Oskar’s most affordable Power Up tariff.

Prague, September 1, 2005 – Do you use prepaid mobile services provided by any of the Czech mobile operators? And are you thinking about making a change? Now is the right time to switch to one of Oskar’s advantageous tariffs. Tariff customers may now enjoy a combination of the benefits of both prepaid cards and tariffs, with new customers also enjoying an additional benefit.

Aside from great tariffs, Oskar now enables all Full tariff customers to keep complete control of their accounts thanks to the Smart Overview service. Oskar has thus removed one of the most important barriers that prevents customers to switching from prepaid card to tariff programs. Smart Overview is even available with Oskar’s most affordable Power Up tariff.

New customers on one of the Full tariffs (with the exception of Full Power Up) will be additionally entitled to receive either 600 free SMSs, 20 free minutes a month , or free weekend calls to the Oskar network, nebo víkendová volání zdarma do sítě Oskar, for a period of six months.

So, this is how Oskar inspires its customers:

1. Smart Overview – detailed cost control
Starting September 8, Oskar launches a new service that will enable customers to keep track of their phone bill. Besides the already existing Flexilimit, that allows the user to set a monthly spending limit (with SMS notification when the limit is reached), the customers are now free to use the new službu Smart Overview service.
Smart Overview uses the handset display to keep Full tariff customers informed of how many free minutes remain on their account, how many they have already used up, how many SMS messages they have sent and how much money (in CZK) they have spent on calls above free minutes provided with their tariff.

The Smart Overview service also lets you use your free minutes more effectively; any unused free minutes are carried over into the next billing period. Starting September 8, free minutes carried over from a previous billing period may be used only once the current month's minutes have been used up; these free minutes cannot be carried over twice.

Here’s an example of the information that the customer may see on the display of his/her handset: “As of September 20, you have 50 free minutes left, you have sent 100 SMSs and the total spending on your Full 50 tariff has reached 416.50, including your monthly fee”. Customers using the Full tariffs can also view a more detailed overview in SelfCare on the Internet. (Examples of the Smart Overview menu are attached to this press release).

“Smart Overview is suitable especially for those who want to switch from a prepaid card to a tariff but are worried about losing control of their account” říká Jana Papíková, senior manažerka pro získávání nových zákazníků.

2. Either 600 free SMSs, 120 free minutes or free weekend calls to the Oskar network
From September 1 to October 31, new customers who chooses a subsidized handset with any Full tariff (with the exception of Full Power Up), will also gain either 600 free SMS messagesfree weekend calls to the Oskar network for six months or a total of 120 free minutes to all networks, also for the upcoming six months (20 minutes each month).

Oskar thus combines the benefits of a subsidized handset with the current Shopping Basket.
