Split Billing

The Split Billing application enables subscribers to separate their call charges (and messaging charges) across two or more accounts – for example one account for personal use, one for business use.

Split Billing

When making an outbound call, the subscriber is asked which account the call should be billed to – and they can set the system to use the same account every time for this number, or to ask each time.  Once the account has been determined, call set-up then continues. Alternatively, subscribers could prefix contact numbers to select the right bill – and this could be stored in their phone book too.

Messaging uses the same settings, with USSD interaction used for messages sent to numbers for which the account can’t be determined automatically.  A web portal also enables subscribers to manage these settings offline.
