Airtime voucher 500 Ugandan Shillings.jpg
Airtime is sold in vouchers as small as 500 Ugandan Shillings - about 25¢. This buys four 'cross network' messages, or eight within MTN. Pricing differentials like these encourage many Ugandans to have more than more handset, or at least more than one SIM card. Multi-SIM phones are available. Swapping SIMs allows sharing of handsets.
