What is Localling ? : It is the process of Assigning a Local Mobile Number by a visited operator to a subscriber of a foreign GSM Operator when that subscriber enters into its territory. The local mobile number (TLN) is assigned to the travelers same SIM card without the need to replace it with another SIM card from the visited operator. Localling Terminology : It may be a new term added to people’s dictionary worldwide. We get this term from the word LOCAL in signaling which means to LOCAL MOBILE NUMBER or LOCAL EQUAL TREATMENT. By adding an '–ING' to the word [LOCAL] we are treating it more as an adjective than a verb and from there we can fetch more similar terms like Localling and Localler.
Where Localler is the person using the LOCALLING service (similar to Roaming and Roamer).More >>
The Process : When a GSM user turns on his mobile phone in a foreign (visited) operators Coverage the following takes place:
- The visited network detects a strange mobile phone in its coverage.
- The visited network identifies the strange mobile phones home network.
- The Visited operator assigns local mobile number to the SIM Card of the visitor.
- The Visited Operator sends SMS to the user informing him of the local mobile number.
Localler : A Localler is a subscriber of a foreign operator (postpaid or prepaid) who uses a local prepaid mobile number provided by a visited operator when traveling. To be a Localler is to travel out of your Home Operator jurisdiction and be treated as local prepaid user of the Visited Operator. Localler is a mobile phones user who travels and uses the Localling Tele communication method/ scenario instead of Roaming.
Be a Localler We present the following scenario as an example:
A GSM subscriber of GCC Telecom travels to London.
The airplane arrives to London, and the traveler switches on his mobile phone.
A Londons Local Prepaid Mobile Number (TLN) is automatically assigned to the traveler home SIM card.
The traveler receives the following SMS:
Welcome to London, your local mobile number is XXXXXXXX, you can now start receiving calls for free. To make a call buy Top-Up Card from shops around the city, for help call XXXX The Traveler can send his Londons local mobile number (TLN) by SMS to all of his friends and family members using his home operator number (roaming).
The traveler turns his home operator number off and keeps his new Londonâ€™s mobile number on.
The traveler starts Receiving Calls.
The Traveler is then referred to as LOCALLER.
The Localler goes to a shop and buys Credit Top-Up Card.
The localler can now make calls using his new Londons mobile number.
When Localler leaves London, the Temporary Local Number is kept pending for 30 days with the balance credit left.
Get TLN : Traveler Local Number (TLN), also called Traveler Local Prepaid Mobile Number (TLPMN) is a temporary local prepaid mobile number assigned by the visited operator to the subscriber of another operator visiting its geographical coverage.
Same SIM : TLN (Traveler Local Number) is assigned via OTA (Over the Air) to the same SIM card of the Locallers home mobile number.
Global SIM : LOCALLING makes SIM cards valid worldwide. Users will no longer need to buy new SIM cards in every country they visit, just switching on their same mobiles when arriving to destinations and start using LOCAL numbers from the visited countriesâ€™ local GSM Operators.
Moving between HOME and LOCALLING numbers : Localler should be able to move SIM number between home and Localling mobile numbers.
Localler would only need moving to his home mobile number if needs to initiate a call when not having credit balance in the TLN.
Moving between TLN and original number should be made easy by entering a USSD code [*55*home country code# SEND] to activate home
mobile number, and [*55*visited country code# SEND] to change to the Localling number. (This is standardize when setting up LOCALLING application). Switching off HOME number : When receiving a call, Locallers is able to easily identify the called number whether Home or TLN. If a Localler wishes to switch off his Home Number, a USSD code should be enabled i.e.: [*54*home country code# SEND], and to switch it back on [*54* home country code * SEND]. (This is standardized when setting up LOCALLING application).More >>
Once a Localler reaches his destination and turns his mobile phone on again, a message is received like the one below: Welcome to London, your local mobile number is XXXXXXXX, Buy Credit Filling Card from shops at the airport, for help call XXXX
Lower call tariffs (than standard roaming) on all outbound calls made with the TLN while traveling.
No inbound call fees on calls to the TLN number
The attraction of having a local number while travelling, while simultaneously retaining the home MSISDN for inbound callers who are not aware of the TLN
One phone, one SIM, two subscriptions
