1st Shareholders Love Selecting Vodafone Numbers

Doha, 12 May, 2009: Vodafone Qatar is delighted with the great response to its "1st Shareholders" Promotion. Feedback from the first customers has been very positive and customers are praising the innovative way in which they can select their numbers.

Starting on May 7 the first shareholders started to visit Vodafone's Internet Store at www.vodafone.com.qa. Customers are choosing their numbers from Vodafone's entire number range including the highly prestigious Star Numbers. All of Vodafone's numbers start with the lucky number "7".

Using a brand new and innovative technology solution, Vodafone's customers can search for their numbers in many different and exciting ways. For example, they can search by birthday or by their favorite number or by entering their current telephone number.

Thousands of shareholders have already visited Vodafone's Internet Store in the first couple of days to select their numbers, to get a Vodafone SIM card, and to start using the new Vodafone network.

Over 82,000 shareholders are being contacted over the course of the month via email and direct mail. They all receive a PIN number that allows them to select up to three numbers on Vodafone's Internet Store. Alternatively, shareholders can call Vodafone's customer care centre number on 800 7 111 to obtain their PIN number. The 1st Shareholder promotion will end May 31st and is valid until end of September.

Shareholders have the choice to select from two great value for money bundles in order to start using their number and Vodafone's services.

Option1) Pay QR100 and get a value package worth QR 250

Option 2) Pay QR350 and get a value package worth QR1000.

"Our 1st Shareholder customers have given us highly positive feedback about how they love the exciting new ways to select their numbers in our Internet Store. We are delighted to hear this and we thank our 1st Shareholders for all their great support to start our business and to build our network. In the near future, we will open our Internet Store to all customers to select their numbers and get connected to Vodafone." said Michael Portz, Chief Marketing Officer, Vodafone Qatar.
