mig33 is the world’s largest mobile-first community.
It was released in December of 2005 as the first global, mobile community, and has quickly spread around the world. Growing on the strength of user recommendations, and bringing the power of Internet to anyone with a mobile phone, more than 25 million users in over 200 countries have joined the mobile community. mig33 is estimated to be the most downloaded application for mobile phone worldwide.
How did we start … Drinking coffee
The concept for mig33 originated in a library coffee shop, as a way for teens to send text messages as much as they wanted, without the high costs of SMS, by using GPRS/data channel which commonly used to access the mobile Internet.
The company was founded on the belief that the rise of IP and wireless technologies would redefine the way people connect and build their relationships and communities. mig33 takes advantage of the shift in the telecommunications industry from managing and tariffing the network, to delivering customer services and value.
Today, mig33 has many additional features beyond just chat, and is a vibrant, mobile community that enables users to connect with friends, meet new people, exchange emoticon expressions, send virtual gifts, play games and have fun. It also connects members to other instant messengers like Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, MSN Messenger and AOL. The service is available to any mobile phone user and is optimized to work with more than 2,000 handsets that include most Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Blackberry handsets.
