Purchasing a new phone

The other way on how to activate Safaricom free bundles is by purchasing a brand new phone from the Safaricom shops that are available countrywide.

For example, a low-end phone like the neon kicka might have something like 100mb of free bundles to activate and redeem.

While a high-end phone like the Samsung galaxy note might have like the 8gb worth of free Safaricom bundles to activate.

Now after you have purchased this brand new phone you have to text the IMEI number of the phone to 440
