    am in Ghana and i want to download but i cant so how do u do it please.

  56. Troy says:

    ever since celtel took over d network services we all had from vmobile reduced.especially the gprs stuff.now most people ve been cut off from the gprs service my suggestion is that they should give the settings back to people then if one doesnt have a minimum of 200naira he shouldnt be able to access gprs then the amount should last for like 3weeks if after 3weeks no recharge he should also be cut off until after rechargin again and they should soon introduce their own free call d 6 free text stil ok but d gprs must improve just by usin d style i told them and they ll see more customers returnin

    Dear Service provider,

    Long ago i have the notion that vmobile is the only caring com. provider we have in Nigeria, not until when Celtel took over the masses-loving movement, 12 free sms to 6, No more gprs browsing, kindly let me no if we are still going to have gprs on celtel line in Nigeria any longer.

    I KNOW QUITE WELL THAT CELTEL IS DOING A GREAT JOB OUT THERE AND I KNOW SOME OTHER SUBSCRIBERS MAY HAVE ACCESS TO THEIR GPRS ON CELTEL PROBABLY BCOS OF THEIR PHONE SETTINGS, I GUESS? SO PLEASE DO MAKE FAIR JUSTICE, LET SOMETHING BE DONE FAST ABOUT GPRS COS GPRS IS THE SAVOUR OF THE MOBILE PHONE ITSELF…. HAVING THE WORLD IN YOUR HANDS.PLEASE LET SOMETHING BE DONE TO ENABLE ALL GPRS ENABLED HANDSETS HAVE THE ACCESS TO HAVE THE SETTINGS.
