Free SMS in South Africa - What mobile operators have to say

SMS is quickly becoming a redundant medium of communication among South African smartphone users, as instant messaging platforms like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger are infinitely cheaper.

There is still a sizeable portion of the local population who do not own smartphones, however, and in this case SMS is still used for some communication.

There are still many users who prefer SMS even if they have a modern phone :) , who not wish to be part of the "media hype".

I wish they did the Indian way of just zero rating local calls and a large number of smses on their telecoms network.
