Virgin Mobile to reimburse R50 airtime credit to affected BlackBerry® customers


In an update to Virgin Mobile South Africa’s earlier press release today regarding reimbursements for BlackBerry® customers, Virgin Mobile has announced that the refund will take the form of a R50 airtime credit to be applied to all affected customers with immediate effect.

Virgin Mobile CEO, Steve Bailey said, "Rather than a pro rata credit applied to the bill of affected customers next month, we've decided a higher value immediate airtime credit would be more useful. We trust our customers will approve of our decision and again wish to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the downtime of the BlackBerry® Internet Service."
