That’s awesome, and is sure to attract of a lot of new customers, well done CellC on actually listening to… me πŸ˜€

So if you are on CellC, MXit won’t cost you any GPRS/internet costs!
MXit Moola is NOT free though πŸ˜‰ Those premium SMSs will still cost ya if you want to purchase Moola to enter competitions or use cool entertainment services on MXit’s Tradepost.

Thanks Cell C for the free internet for MXit!

Mobile Google Talk (GTalk / Gmail)

Google Talk and MXit work quite well together.
You can add a GTalk (@gmail.com) users to your MXit contacts to chat to them from your phone.
And similarly, you can add number@mxit.co.za contacts to your GTalk contact list.

You can get a google talk account from talk.google.com or when you use GMail.

Issues

Occasionally, there are issues between Google and MXit.
Like, some gmail accounts don’t want to receive messages from MXit, but other accounts do. Like, I have two gmail accounts, the one works perfectly, the other doesn’t. Google are obviously fixing up their issues still.

I think that different GMail user accounts are being load balanced over different areas/ips. This means that some accounts have problems accessing the MXit servers.

Other Stuff

World first: Vote on Idols with MXit

Another great MXit Synergy:

Apparantly, you will be able to vote for the Idols singing competition via MXit.
idols logo za
This must be a world first, as I doubt any other competition has allowed for voting via Instant Messenger. As usual, South Africa is first when it comes to tech innovation.

Mxit will also become the official voting medium for talent search show β€œSouth African Idols” later this year.

Official – well, there will surely still be the SMS/phone call option of voting!

Idols Schedule / Times

The idols show on Mnet runs from Sunday 19 August – the first episode, up till the final on Sunday 9 December 2007.

Have fun!
And new: get MP3 Music Via Mxit even!

Mobile Music Downloads

MXit now allows you to download MP3s or songs or ringtones to your phone if it supports it!

Check out Tradepost on your MXit!
