Manage your WebMoney wallet from your phoneIt is no secret that the WebMoney Transfer system is still one of the very convenient tools for making electrical payments on the network. Plus, although at the last time the Internet was replenished with new online services for manipulating virtual cash, the popularity of WebMoney did not particularly suffer from this. But in this article we will not hum the praises of this system, we will only turn our attention to the curious Telepat service for managing WM-wallets using the phone.
To work with Telepath, you must first register for free with this service. this can be done using the GSM Keeper Java midlet, or by calling a special phone (it can be found on the company’s website) through the system’s interactive voice menu. On my own, I’ll add that it took me no more than five minutes to fully register.
Everything is simple here. We dial from any phone (most importantly, so that it has the ability to tone dial) the number that we used when registering. Then everything is like clockwork.
using an electronic woman on the other end of the wire, it is allowed to get information about the balance of WebMoney wallets, transfer funds or, conversely, transfer them from a prepaid WM card, pay bills, it only looks like the services of mobile operators. Convenient, quick, easy. Not even a computer is needed.
It’s impossible to cope without a mobile phone, as it will take great power at once of a couple of modern technologies - Java and GPRS as well. We load the appropriate version of the GSM Keeper J2ME application from the developers website into the memory of our phone. In order not to scoff at himself with unnecessary gestures, it is allowed to use the device’s WAP browser as well as the wap.telepat.ru link.
Having installed the midlet and having entered the necessary identification data, we acquire cellular online access to our virtual wallets (see the screenshot).
Text messaging is another work tool with the Telepat service. This variation, although it also requires the availability of the necessary version of GSM Keeper, but frees the user from attachment to the GPRS data channel. All communication here between the customer and the server is ensured by sending SMS messages containing key commands.
Here is one example of a financial transaction using GSM Keeper (the picture is taken from the developer's website):
And, to draw a line under today's article, there is little about security. What does the Telepath advise us? Well, firstly, according to the company, everything is encrypted before being sent to the server. Secondly, to activate an account in the system, a unique master code is used, only for access it is necessary to specify your PIN code every time. And, thirdly, it is additionally allowed to establish an additional system call to a telephone number to confirm the completion of operations.
