No MiFi? No Problem. You can still enjoy Vodafone Uganda’s ZagaLife promo with their new ZagaSIM

I really hustle with data, buying MBs everyday to stay connected and many times, I run out and have to find ways of staying connected. I leach on free WiFi hotspots for as long as I can, then tap on a friend’s WiFi till they tell you to get your own. My neighbor even changed his WiFi SSID to “Get your own WiFi” so I get the message.

That was the story of my life until Vodafone unveiled the ZagaLife offer that gives you a MiFi at promotion price of only Ugx 90,000 with 1GB of free data and they throw in an additional daily data of 100MB for 3 months and WhatsApp for 1 whole year. If you have not heard about this offer find it all here so you do not miss out.

But I had my 50k and needed something like this as well and that is where Vodafone’s ZagaSIM promo comes in. The ZagaSIM is for customers who already have or do not need a MiFi but want to enjoy the ZagaLife offer on their smartphone/device.

The ZagaSIM goes for only Ugx 50,000 and comes with;

  1. 1GB of data valid for 30 days
  2. Free 200MB per day for 3 months
  3. Free WhatsApp for 6 months

When I saw this, I knew I was sorted. 200MB daily data and free WhatsApp for 6 months on top of the 1GB for a month is more than I could ever ask for and here is why. I did the math and 1GB of data is about Ugx 35,000. 200MB daily for 3 months is 18GB in total plus free WhatsApp all for just Ugx 50,000. This is literally a steal not even a deal.

Tip 1: The ZagaSIM is for someone like you who has a compatible 4G phone, MiFi or tablet. It will work with only devices compatible with Band 38 (2600) and Band 3 (1800). You can know the bands your device supports by looking up it’s specifications online e.g. If you have a Samsung J7 you can google it’s specs or look them up on GSM arena where they will show you what bands your device supports.

If your device doesn’t support Vodafone bands, you can always buy the MiFi which is already compatible so that you can enjoy the offer.

You can get the ZagaSIM at any of the Vodafone stores. Use the store locator to find the store nearest to you. For the lazy ones, here is a list of all Vodafone Uganda stores.
