I got this SMS yesterday from the Ministry of Tourism:

“Vote for Jeita grotto. Send the word “Jeita” to 1070. The ministry of tourism is offering this sms free of charge, however a cost of 10 cents will be charged by the organizers of the new seven wonders competition”

What exactly is the MOT offering free of charge? Can someone please explain?

As for the new seven wonders competition, I will refrain from commenting on the whole issue until the voting date is over but I myself will not vote.
