05 Oct, 2007
Ethiopian mobile telephony subscribers will enjoy the benefits of texting again, as the SMS service is back in operation after over a 2-year ban. Text messages may be a key generator of revenue for operators...

Come on Boss, you banned sms at the Power Plant too!!

Of course if you are in a country such as Ethiopia, where the government is reported to have banned sms as well as some media, why would you think you'd be able to sue any one? Do you think Courts down there work aright? Those who really know the so called Third World really understand the hilarious side of the last comment.

Hhahaahahaa,personally for me I can't immagine how do the operator ban sending msgs if the costumer signed a contract. If I where there I would sude them, for nonfulfillment of the contract terms. And all that sounds so stupid, like a joke!

Halle Selasie the Great King under Jah Hand didn't want to rule the world, he wanted One Earth One Tribe One Love and the salvation of the African Slaves.

Text until your fingers bleed Etiopia. Freedom of Speech is back on your Mobile.
