Abstract

As of Now when a call is made from a Mobile handset we see the caller's number but in addition to this we would display the mobile handset model and the manufacturer Name of the called person as an advertising Strategy.When a Mobile phone receives a Call from another mobile phone ,the caller's number along with the handset model and Manufacturer name which the caller is using will be displayed. Once the call is established the called Person will also get the Receiver's Handset model and Manufacturer Name in addition to the Number. This is a Great Advertising strategy though it looks pretty simple.For example if President of USA is using a MOTOROLA Mobile say "IDEN QWEST”, then once Any call made from his mobile will reveal that he is using MOTOROLA's QWSET handset, then people will definitely think that there is something special about that handset and the sales would go up for that handset.
