Technology paves way for new changes and now it’s time to access Facebook on mobile without an internet connection!
Facebook India in alliance with Fonetwish, has initiated a USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) based service to make the access of Facebook even easier.
Using this service Facebook account can be opened on a basic phone also, having no features of internet. It also runs on those like Blackberry and iPhone.
By dialing *325# (or *fbk#) from a mobile phone a user can access his Facebook account without any data plan or internet. Using a few number based commands, various features of Facebook such as chat, adding new people to your friends list, and more can be accessed at a very nominal price of rupee 1.00 per day for unlimited usage.
Updating the status is absolutely free, but using other features, such as posting on a wall, checking notifications, are chargeable. Facebook by Fonetwish is a subscription service that charges Rs. 1/ day for unlimited usage.
Fonetwish says that this service is currently available for Airtel, Aircel, Idea and Tata Docomo users in India.
