Islamic Text Messages
Without Verizon or AT&T monthly telephone plans, Nigerians buy credit for their handsets (cell phones). Each credit is sold in specific amounts and generally buys less than 20 minutes or so of talking locally. To save money, most people rely on texting. At least once a day, I receive an Islamic text during this Ramadan season. Today’s said something like, “Share your love for Allah with your callers. Dial xxxx.” I think I’ll pass.
