Yes, you read that right. U Mobile now offers U Buddy service at RM10/month to make free calls to all U Mobile numbers. As what FreshGear has written, this isn’t free anymore as postpaid users have to pay extra for it.
Previously, U Mobile offered a time limited promotion to its postpaid customers to make free calls on U Mobile network. Some genius up there tried to spin the promotion around by creating a gimmick by charging and yet calling it free. Instead, they should have called it Unlimited Calls within U Mobile instead of misusing the FREE word.
To top it off, even the name U Buddy Service sounds weird. Upon hearing this one would think of a bell boy or friend assist. If they ran out of creative juice, they should have name it something as simple as “Unlimited Calls Extra”.
First they can’t calculate 20% in their online flash game and now this. Somebody should buy them a dictionary and calculator.
