Wooo000h Facebook need no internet now with Airtel

Amazing !!! something really making me think over moving from my age old Vodafone to Airtel. Since the day I started using mobile phone I am using Vodafone, never thought in my bad dreams to switch the network. I was happy with my Vodafone service. But today when I read this news, an evil thought came in mind murmering in my ears “Dude switch your network, try something new. Number portability have hit the Indian Mobile Networks.”

Though I always say “I hate facebook”, I can’t come out of it now, I am addicted, I am trapped. The facebook widget runs continuosly day and night on my Nexus One eating up lot of my interenet usage.

But thanks to Airtel for its USSD-based Facebook access service in India, one of its kind and first in the entire world. a way to access the facebook without an internet connection. Airtel users will be able to enjoy FB for free, and, for Rs. 1 a day, view/comment/Like news feeds, post on walls, confirm friend requests, find and add friends, and view notifications. Isn’t it a great news for all Facebook fans in India.

What the heck is this USSD ?

USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) is a session-based communication, unlike SMS, which is transaction-based, it has significantly faster response times, and is more suited for content-based and interactive applications. It functions somewhat like a menu-based browser. The technology is unique to GSM, and is a built-in way to transmit data over signal channels. Airtel’s USSD solution is based on Fonetwish, developed by U2opia Mobile.

“Vodafone yaar kuchh karo aapbhi, other than simply activating my caller tunes, without even asking you for doing so.”
