Where to Buy Mkopa Phones in Uganda
You can buy Mkopa phones in Uganda by either visiting an MTN or Airtel service center near you. Upon your visit, request your desired MKopa Phone model and pay the required deposit in order to get the phone and start paying in installments. Please make sure you have the following requirements before getting your Mkopa phone.
- A valid Uganda National ID card.
- Required deposit. For example, to get the Nokia C20, make sure you have UGX 149,000 in cash to deposit on your Mkopa account.
Once you acquire an Mkopa phone in Uganda, make sure you pay the required daily or weekly amount to avoid locking your smartphone. Failure to pay will make the smartphone unusable and force Mkopa agents to add you on a defaulters list making it hard for you to get another device.
Also, in case of device theft, make sure you report it as fast as you can to the Mkopa customer support in order to have it blocked. However, you will still be ineligible to get another Mkopa smartphone until you pay for the stolen device in full.
