Vodafone had launched the first ever operator billing for Android market in Europe, which can be accessed by the users in the UK and Germany. The users of the Android application on Vodafone will be able to transfer their App market purchases to their phone bills, instead of paying out through credit cards.
As per Vodafone, "In addition to facilitating the best possible user experience, Vodafone operator billing extends your reach to the large number of app buying customers who are unwilling or unable to use credit cards. In some countries this can be more than 90% of the market”.
Initially, the services will be available to the customers who have bought their mobile handsets online and will be available at high street shops.
The text messaging is getting expensive again as AT&T restructures the company’s text message plans. This change alters the $10 plan for new customers, making it to $20 a month, providing unlimited message pack with charging 30 cents for each message sent.
The new and upcoming customers were able to access the plan but the ones who wanted to activate the plan on their iPhone 5 or an upcoming Android smartphone will have to bare extra expenses. The new scheme launched by Vodafone is a complete solution to the problem.
