Fono Claro vs Mobile?

Postby Mystery » Fri Apr 01, 2011 12:02 am

Hey... I just learnt today that you can get a Fono Claro for 20 soles per month. It is basically a cell-phone chip you put onto a special land-line phone that works like any land-line phone at land-line phone prices.

If it uses the EXACT same technology and network as cellphones... WHY is there such a HUGE difference between Fono Claro which is extremely cheap and a mobile phone which are extremely expensive??

I know they somehow block it, but is there ways to crack the Fono Claro chip to use it into a mobile phone?

I've asked several people about these fono claro's and all of them tell me it's not such a good deal and they have problems with calls and network. You might want to ask at polvos azules or las malvinas or somewhere dodgy like that. If you do do it, let us know. I for one would be interested to know how you get on
