Here is how you too can bubbletalk:
1. Be a d1g1 customer.
2. Have sufficient credit/talk time on your mobile phone
3. Dial * (star) before the phone number (016-xxxxxxx) of the person whom you wish to send a bubbletalk
4. Press send
5. Leave your voice message (you have 30 seconds to speak) after you hear the *bloop* *bloop* sound
6. Press end call after you are done
When someone leaves you a bubbletalk, you’ll get an sms alerting you of the message and the steps on how you can retrieve it.
Basically, you type in *0* and press send on your phone to listen to the voice message. Listening to a voice message is FREE.
Is it more convenient than sms-ing? Yes and no. I personally think that the step involved in using the service – especially listening to the voice mail – probably takes as much time as texting someone.
But I do think it’s very useful if you, like me, do not have a voicemail box. It’s also nice to hear the voice of the person trying to get in touch with you for a change. I’d definitely bubbletalk more after this, especially on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
