This is a very clean idea from MTS. How? The answer is very simple. Most of you guys are using Android, even if you are not using Android, many a times you say that the smartphone is not holding up for a very long time and you blame the operating system for that.

According to the recent reports about 70% of the smartphones in this world require internet continuously as there are many apps installed by you in your smartphone and the apps need internet so that, it can get refreshed providing you latest updates. So, if there is no internet on your phone you can not stay socially active as most of the social sites needed internet whichever may be Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc or get updated to the latest updates.
