The intent is clear Ìü¦ detailed messages from a reliable source (unless the enemy takes over the cellular operator) to inform citizens and dispel rumors.®? The service is free of charge to recipients.®? According to one distributor for Nokia phones in the region, this policy has caused a rush to buy cell phones as citizens have at least received one message clearly Ìü¦ If you donÌüt have a next-generation SMS capable phone, youÌüre just not that important.
