Movistar Suspends Swaps Points with Tenure Until 2007

Movistar has today sent a statement to its distribution network in which it warns that the blue area of the program of points remains suspended until January 2.

Blue is a category within the program points Movistar contracts that are mobile at best price in Exchange for a stay of 18 months in the Movistar service. The suspension is due to estimates of redemptions have exceeded this year, established in 700,000, so we suppose to you have will have exhausted the reserved departure to subsidize phones area blue.

Movistar is happy that “will have exceeded their best expectations”, and announces that this will not affect or swaps of normal points or to customers who already have a broadcast code, which may do so normally.

Although a uncomfortable measure, it seems to me good news since it will mean that this plan will be driven during 2007 for customers who want to use it and commit. For those who prefer not to have permanence, all mobile catalog are also available out of the blue zone, so it is always possible to choose: some of what you should learn Orange, which does not renew the phone without signing a new permanence, for example.
