Nokia Announces a Pay-by-Phone Service Launching in Asia and Africa

Would You Use a Pay-by-Phone Service?

The rest of the world has all the fun: Nokia announced its first pay-by-phone service, which will allow users to prepay to an account that they can draw from while on the go. Nokia is introducing this service first to Asia and Africa, while there's no word yet on when, or even if, it will be appearing in the US.

I'm totally jealous. In Japan, people buy everything from clothes to food with their mobile phones, and have been doing so for a while now. It makes me wonder— with all of the accessibility that debit cards have brought us, would you ever consider paying by phone?
