I want to know more about the Military Mobile Telecommunications Network.....how much does it cost to have it setup and will the phone calls really be free from him? And what cell phone companies do this?
I don't really know much about the Military Mobile Telecommunications Network..but with my kids father..he always calls us..i can never call him. when he calls a total of 11 numbers show up on my caller i.d. first two numbers followed by a dash and they other 9 numbers...idk how he did it but he has a cell phone out there maybe bc he was stationed in Germany but he is able to text my cell phone..no cell phone should keep you from receiving the calls! but if your family member has a separate line with his own number like my kids father then you should be able to call him. I have t-mobile and in order for me to call him or text him i have to have money in a flex account...like prepaid minutes! I hope i was helpful or if you already knew all of this..just ignore me..lol!!
I did not know any of this but he is telling me to get a network that supports military mobile telecommunications and that it costs around $300 dollars to set it up.....but that it will not costs us anything for him to call Afghanistan..I am just trying to make sure this is not a scam..
I haven't heard of anything like that...they do have it where soldiers have cell phones in afghan but i wouldn't begin to know about them just that they have them..I will ask my kids father since he does have a cell phone in afghan i believe that is what the "he" is talking about..
Absolutely a scam-completely and totally-whats more the individual suggesting that you foot the bill for this is very likely NOT a us soldier. How you recieve calls from Afghanistan-1 )a soldier with access to a Defense switched Network telephone calles his home installation and then either uses a US calling card to call from there or has the operator transfer him to you. this costs what a US long distance call from his base to you would cost-or if its transfered nothing at all 2) A soldier with access to an MWR phone center uses an AT and T military calling card or other international calling card to call you-cost varies but is not prohibitive. 3) a soldier with a GSM cell phone or satellite phone just calls you like any other international call-expensive but effective. To the best of my knowledge there is no such thing as the Military Mobile Communications network These type of scams are usually perpetuated by individuals in Nigeria or Liberia posing as US soldiers for the purpose of defrauding US, British and Austrailian women.
Read this as it is about the scam on the phone system as well.
If this is a person you have met online then 99.999% of the time it is a scam. These are people out of Nigeria, Ghana and other places to fleece money out of unsuspecting people. You need to trace the IP number to see where the emails are really coming from. You can also see errors in spelling, and other glimpses of ideas as well.
Thank you everyone.I thought so!! I just did not want to tell him off until I knew for sure. I have been suspicious from day one but did not want to be rude to an American soldier.I know how much they need our support.
