Everything You Need to Know About SmileVoice Calls and Airtime

In a previous article where we covered everything about Smile 4G data, we promised we would do the same for SmileVoice calls and airtime. The thing is, Smile is known for data services, but not everyone knows you can equally use Smile for voice calls just like you do with local airtime networks in Nigeria.

You can use your Smile 4G data bundle for voice calls and SMS to anyone, anywhere in the world from your mobile phone using SmileVoice App or a Smile SIM inserted into a compatible voLTE phone.

SmileVoice service assigns you a +234-70- mobile number which you can call and receive calls with. When traveling abroad, you don’t need to roam the line as it can be used over any local WiFi but international charges would apply. However, Smile-to-Smile calls are absolutely free no matter where you are. That’s way cool!

How SmileVoice calls are charged.

SmileVoice is charged in MBs to Anytime and SmileLite data plans. For example, if you are using a 10GB Anytime (12-month) plan and you make a one-minute local call, you will be charged 10.76MBs from your data plan, which equates to ₦8.22. That in effect is a call rate of 13.7k/sec. For SmileVoice ONLY plan offers the cheapest rate of 13.3k/sec.
