Second Life for Vodafone

Now, this is getting a tad silly in my opinion.  I like most of what Second Life is about and even applauded the ‘Second Life Gig’ that was performed on a purpose ‘built’ island but now Vodafone are offering the InsideOut service were you can make mobile calls between your Second Life character and people in the “real” world.

If you want this service you have to bob/walk/fly along to Vodafone Island where you can pick up your free phone and then you’ll be able to message and call your online friends, even if they’re offline.  You do need to provide your real mobile phone number but this is kept private and the connection is made in the background.

Until the end of the month the service is free when calling from Second Life, after that you’ll be charged L$ when calling from the inside and your normal mobile rate when calling from the real world (if you can remember what that is).

Next step is virtual phone theft, phone sex, happy slapping, sim cloning………………………
