If you are under 25, spend R40 per month with Vodacom, then there are some freebies for you

I registered my kids and looking forward to getting their

15 SVS’s every month;

15 MMS’s every month;

3 MB of data every month;

Hold on... what is an SVS?

I initially read this as SMS... but Googling eventually found the answer: SVS = Short Voice Service

Oh, and what's with the American spelling of Colour?

Using SVS

Dial. Talk. Hang up. Message delivered. It's really that simple! No more waiting for the recipient's cellphone to ring or listening to their voicemail greeting - you can talk for up to 25 seconds before a warning beep lets you know that you've got 5 seconds to end your message for only R0.45 - SVS today!

To send an SVS:

Press the # key on your cellphone and enter the person's cellphone number (e.g #082 123 4567)

Press dial

Listen to the voice prompts and leave your message

A reminder SMS alert notification will be sent to the recipient if they've not listened to your SVS within 6 days.

Receiving SVS

Your family and friends will find it just as easy, convenient and non-intrusive to pick-up your SVSs. Once your SVS has been sent, the recipient is notified via SMS. To retrieve a SVS simply dial #99.
