Facebook, Google on mobile without Internet

Yeah most of them who I shared this info, thought I was insane for certain! How could this be possible! I told them that even you can try it on Nokia 1100, and they just didnt agree with me, until I showed them how it all works, which did keep them wonder struck for some time!

Now dont worry its not any trick, but the evolution of Technology!

Lets start with Facebook
The solution is Fonetwish, a USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data [info]) service which helps you use Facebook, just with data sent and received as SMS.

To Activate just call, *325# (or *fbk# for non-Qwetry phones) from your phone which will activate this service! You will receive a menu as message, and also you then continue using Facebook on you EDGE/GPRS/3G-less phone.

Charges: The best part, Updating your status is free, for other features, you have to activate the Fonetwish Subscription that is just Rs. 1/day! But sadly only some operators provide USSD service, i.e., Airtel, Aircel, Tata Docomo.


Moving to Google
Its always that we need to get some info in urgent, and having internet on your cell phone or a cyber cafe nearby is always not the case! Google has its solution!

Send ‘Your Search Query’ to 97733-00000 and you will get the search results and message!
Example sending ‘Movies Mangalore‘ will get your details about Movies that are currently been screened in Mangalore Theatre’s!

Charges: Just the ordinary message charge! and works in all service providers!

So what are you waiting for, enjoy the power of technology!
