The rate at which most of Nigerian network providers sends Text ads can be so frustrating and this irritates me especially when I’m expecting a bank credit alert. Lol.
Sometimes, you’ll get to notice that you automatically opt-in for something you don’t want to and the next minutes, you’ll be charged for what you don’t know about. I still remember how my grand mum disturbs me on how MTN Nigeria keep charging her unnecessary for unknown transaction. This is because of the spamming text ads they send and she might’ve mistakenly opted-in to any of the service shown via the text ads.
Etisalat Nigeria is another network that keeps sending me spamming sms and some other useless text ads. Sometimes, they even grow wings to send voice ads via phone calls. That very moment I’ll think it’s a call from one of my client that wants to sign for another contract, only for me to hear recorded voice ads from Etisalat network. This can be so frustrating and I know that every one of you that uses these networks also face similar challenge as I do.
