You can now recharge your mobile phone batteries in Vodafone shops

19. February 2007

As of today, mobile phone users can have their handsets charged at Vodafone shops for free. The offer is available to all Vodafone customers as well as users who call through the networks of other operators. The owners of Nokia and Sony Ericsson mobiles can have their phones charged this way; other models may also be charged depending on the options provided by individual shops. Vodafone is the first operator on the market to present such a service in the Czech Republic. “While conceiving the offer, we tried to accommodate the greatest possible number of users.

As of today, mobile phone users can have their handsets charged at Vodafone shops for free. The offer is available to all Vodafone customers as well as users who call through the networks of other operators. The owners of Nokia and Sony Ericsson mobiles can have their phones charged this way; other models may also be charged depending on the options provided by individual shops. Vodafone is the first operator on the market to present such a service in the Czech Republic.

“While conceiving the offer, we tried to accommodate the greatest possible number of users. With regards to the fact that over 80% of the mobile phone owners on the Czech market use Nokia and Sony Ericsson handsets, we can charge the batteries of more than 200 models for customers,” says Vodafone CR’s Spokesperson Jakub Hrabovsky.

Vodafone is using the original chargers, direct from the manufacturers, to charge phones. In order to assure customers that their phones will be fully protected from possible misuse while they are being charged, Vodafone will provide them with a small container for their SIM cards, which they can keep in their possession securely during the entire charging period.

Every customer who is interested in using the service when their mobile phone’s battery has died can contact a sales representative in a shop, where they fill in a simple form with basic information about the telephone and the owner. After this, similar to a coat-check in a theatre, the customer gets a card with an identification number, which they should keep secure. Upon presentation of the card, the sales representative returns the charged phone to the customer.
