Details are on the back of marked labels or on instore posters.

Kelly Killian, PepsiCo International Marketing Manager Caribbean, said “we are very pleased that Cable & Wireless is partnering Pepsi in this consumer promotion. Not only are they generously providing a significant quantity of phones courtesy of bmobile, but through their network, consumers will be able to participate in this exciting once-in-a-lifetime promotion across the region. This partnership, further underlines the deep commitment that both Pepsi and Cable & Wireless have to what will be the greatest sporting event in the Caribbean – ICC Cricket World Cup 2007.”
