In this post, you are going to learn about the Hajj Special Offer and How to set it up
I made mention of roaming. I hope you know what this means. because the Glo Hajj offer is a roaming offer.
Well, if you don’t know what roaming is, let me briefly carry you along.
In telecommunication, Roaming means being out of your Carriers network operation zone and connects to other available networks with your primary network SIM.
When You go to Saudi Arabia with your Glo line, it should be out of coverage unless you want to roam.
Data Roaming means a situation whereby your device will be connected to another network due to a lack of coverage of your local network in that location. This is more than just a lack of network within some areas in your country but precisely the absence of your network carrier’s service abroad. For example, if you travel to Saudi Arabia and you are able to make use of your Glo line to connect to other available network coverage to make calls and browse the internet, that means you are on a roaming network service. Because Glo network has no network coverage there.
Sometimes people use it unknowingly and unaware ending up with a big bill. That’s why by default, the Data Roaming service is always off on smartphones because leaving it ON can cause unwanted automatic charges if you roam around.
In this case of the Glo Hajj offer, your Phone has to be connected to a particular network in Saudi Arabia in other to Enjoy the offer.
