London (PRWEB) November 26, 2007
ChristianMobile, creators of VirtualBible™, the first ever book delivered to a mobile phone by way of a premium text message, facilitated the implementation of the Mobile Phone Bible download service in the United Kingdom.
The service enables pre-paid and contract mobile phone subscribers across all mobile networks in the United Kingdom to purchase the Bible via text message and download the full Bible by sending the words GNTOT or CEVOT for the Old Testament or GNTNT or CEVNT for the New Testament to 60999 at a cost of 6 GBP per Testament. Welsh, Afrikaans, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian-Portugese, and the Catholic apocryphal books are also available for download at http://www.christianmobileuk.com as well as a number of Christian ringtones, Christian wallpapers and daily Christian inspirational text messages such as prayers, devotions, Bible verses and Christian quotations.
"We expect demand for VirtualBible™ to come mainly, but not exclusively from young people for whom accessing information of all kinds on their mobiles are as normal as making a phone call. In South Africa alone we distributed approximately 80 000 VirtualBibles, Testaments and Bible Books via mobile phone with download numbers increasing by the minute. In a world where recent voices about Christianity in the media are often so ill-informed, extreme or just plain naive, ChristianMobile is doing something radically different and extraordinarily important in spreading the Truth to all corners of the world through such a popular medium. We see ourselves merely as an instrument in God's hands, playing a role through our mobile Evangelism efforts, thereby fulfilling The Great Commission. It is an inspiration anytime, anywhere, anyplace. We are expanding rapidly into various territories across the globe and will soon, in addition to the Bibles also offer an array of popular Christian books for mobile phone download. In addition to our current services in Australia, South Africa, Russia, United Kingdom and the United States of America we will soon also expand into Austria, Brazil, Bahrain, Belgium, China, Denmark, Egypt, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Iraq, India, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Mexico, Namibia, Kenya, Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Phillipines, Portugal, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Tanzania, Turkey, UK and Yemen through a single mobile delivery platform", said Bertus Preller Marketing Executive of ChristianMobile.
