Reliance Communications (RCOM) is looking forward to spreading some Christmas cheer amongst its GSM subscribers. The company has launched a new 'Facebook Messenger Plan,' which offers unlimited access to Facebook (including the Facebook Messenger), for Rs. 16 per month.
To activate 'Facebook Messenger Plan, Relaiance GSM subscribers will have to send text message "FB" to 53739 from their mobile phones. Once activated, this plan will be available for the users for the next 30 days and will get auto renewed on the completion of this period.
"We are confident that 'Facebook Messenger Plan' with unlimited usage of Facebook without any extra data charges is set to provide a compelling new experience with incredible affordability to Smartphone users across the country on our superior network. We are hoping this offer to trigger a significant shift of youth customers using Smartphones to our superior network," Nilanjan Mukherjee, Wireless-Chief Revenue Officer at RCOM, said.
Facebook Messenger is an instant messaging service and software application that enables text and video communication. It is a cross platform app and is available on smartphones as well as feature phones.
In the beginning of December, the social networking giant had rolled out a new version of Messenger app. With the help of this new app, mobile phone users who do not have a Facebook account too could sign up the service by entering their phone number. Thus eliminating the need to login via a Facebook account or an email address in order to chat with their Facebook friends.
