Sure, having the latest phone with all the bells and whistles is great. Some people take pleasure in pulling out their newly acquired iPhone (insert number here) or Samsung Galaxy (insert capital letter here) and having their friends ooh and aah over it, just like most moms do when they see newborn babies.
I for one am a sucker for the Android tablets, and can’t wait until the ultimate version comes out, and when that day comes, I may have to retire my battered Samsung Galaxy Tablet for good.
In this regard, Vodafone has risen to the challenge magnificently by providing its subscribers plenty of options to upgrade their customers’ phone plans with entertainment and lifestyle add-ons that will keep anyone entertained, informed, and in touch.
Here are the latest entertainment and lifestyle add-ons from Vodafone.
1. Callertunes and Tones
Love your phone, but hate the built-in ringtones and message alert tones that come with it? Now you can personalize your phone with Vodafone ringtones and Callertunes. With Callertunes, you can put a smile on your caller’s face even before you answer your phone. Select the latest pop ditty or the song that describes you to a T.
