Tehran, May 18. MOBNA – Some retailers are recently charging customers more for equipping their mobile with Persian software. They charge various fees depending on the model and price of the set.
For example, loading the software on Sony’s k810 is charged 40,000 rials, whereas, loading it on Samsung I900’s 8 and 16 Gbs cost 80,000 to 240,000 rials respectively.
They maintain that the software’s different fonts on different sets account for the difference in price.
Other retailers believe, however, that this is only profiteering, since installing the software on different sets should not be at different costs.
Some retailers even replace the casing of used mobiles and offer them as brand new.
