Currently, 26,600 users use the service as part of a pilot plan launched in 2008, with a similar number that are on the waiting list.
Elbert Duran, press spokesman for ICE, said there were compelling reasons, mainly technical, that forced them to reschedule the sale of the lines.

Duran said that ICE will offer some of the lines through Kolbi packages, which include airtime minutes and the cost of the phone.
