How to Activate
To activate your public phone, you simply set a security code and recharge it with airtime.
What is the Profit

How to Use
A customer must prepay for any call, in intervals of 20 RWF. Your dealer must punch in that amount and allow the customer to place a call. If the customer does not use the entire pre-paid amount, the dealer will offer change. All transactions are easily inputted through navigation buttons and verified by the digital screen.
How it is Secure
Each phone comes equipped with a coded SIM card that cannot be used on any other phone. And the dealer-established security code offers another level of protection.
