If you are a BSNL customer, and are a kind of person who loves anything free, this news should make you happy. BSNL initiates something that Airtel along with Nowpos had done before, but never had any success, opt-in Mobile ads (in the name of Beep India). BSNL customers can choose to receive ads on their mobile phone and in return for which, they will get free talk time. The program called Ad se Kamao is an opt-in service (customers can voluntarily choose to enter the program), where BSNL subscribers can choose from various Ad categories and control how many ads will be delivered to their mobile.
How to activate Mobile Ads?
Subscribers would have to visit Adsekamao website, the link for which is given above and register their BSNL mobile. After which, they can sign in at any time and make changes to the Ad channel through which they may wish to receive the Ads. There are three main channels for Ad delivery, Voice, SMS (including MMS) and WAP push.
Voice Ads: When you call someone, for every third such call, a voice advertisement will be played instead of the caller tune. To register for Voice Ads, subscriber’s would need to call 51235 and opt-in.
Idle screen ads: When your mobile is Idle and is in the Home screen, a series of advertisements will be displayed. You will be needed to download an application and install on your mobile for this to work. Your AdseKamao account will have the link to this application. Note that GPRS connection may be needed for the Idle Ads (ngIDLE) to display. However, you’ll not be charged for this GPRS usage.
WAP Portal ads: These are the ads that you’ll see when you visit the BSNL WAP portal.
If you think you are not benefiting from this offer in any way, you can unsubscribe at any time by calling the same number, 51235 from your BSNL (Cell One) Mobile.
