If you need to send message from your phone, either you send SMS or you need to have internet access on your phone to use apps like WatsApp or facebook etc. What if you can send message without spending SMS charges or using internet? A new concept I have found that can allow every mobile user to send free messages. Although this system needs a small add-on of hardware in mobile which I am sure can be integrated in handsets without any issue. This hardware is packet receiver and transmitter and this is not related to IP or anything. If you look around you will find many mobile handsets switched ON and working, what if all these handsets can work as a mini mobile towers from which our message can jump from one phone to another and reach the target phone? A small radio frequency carrying our message can be send to nearest phone which comes within the range of our phone and so on the message will get passed on. Also the sender needs to add a key to the message which only receiver knows and this key will unlock the message to view.
However like every other technology there are few drawbacks in this technology. First drawback of this system is if you are alone in a jungle (which is rarest of the rare case) where there is no phone except yours then you can’t use it to send free messages, otherwise we are always surrounded by mobile phones which can be made to work as a mini mobile towers and send and receive messages for free with no carrier charges or need of internet connection.
Second drawback is extra battery consumption in phones when working as a tower. Smartphones already have poor battery complains and when they will be given the task of working as a tower, they will sure give even more poor backup. Also people who will not want to use this free message service will deny using their phone as a tower and lead to poor network.
