Access Facebook on any Mobile Without the Internet
Facebook is the most popular Social Networking site over the net. Most of people are using Facebook with there Mobile Phone to stay connected with there friends and buddies. But have you ever think of using Facebook without Internet/EGDE/GPRS/3G or even when your mobile does not support that.
Do you have an old mobile phone, like the Nokia 1100, that has no browser and can do little more than make phone calls? Or are you stuck in some remote place where there’s no Internet or no other form of data (EGDE/GPRS/3G) connectivity is available?
Not a problem. You can still use your Facebook account in India by dialing *325# (or *fbk#) from your mobile phone – this service requires no data plan or Internet and it will even work on phones of the Stone Age. Here’s a quick tour:
You dial the *325# number, then enter your Facebook username and password and you are in. You can then send number based commands to use various features of Facebook, chat with friends who are online, add new people to your friends list, and more.
I played with the service for many time and it was a nice experience overall. The interface is quite cool with many options in it.
Fonetwish says that this service is now available for Airtel, Aircel, Idea and Tata Docomo users in India.
It may be too much work to read your Facebook news feed stories one by one but this is a good option to quickly update your Facebook status or for chatting with friends who are online. The price is reasonable too – you just have to pay a subscription fee of Rs1.00 per day for unlimited usage. Hope it will help even the low-income group people to join Facebook and always stay connected with their friends.
