City Info and “Phone Sociology”

I’ve always been fascinated by “Mobile Phone Sociology” – The famous Indian “missed call” is known to all of us.

Very interesting to note how such things blend into business models:

Today, a company has launched a city info service, in which you don’t have to call them. Just give them a missed call and they will call you back – to give you the info you need about our Bangalore!

Go on – For any info you need about the city, call 40164016! Oops, give a missed call to that number ;-)

Warning: I personally don’t use such services coz I’m too paranoid about privacy!
