On the simplest phones, the service lets you send text, pictures, calendar appointments and contacts to share. But you can use on smartphones extra options, such as commenting on other profiles, send multimedia messages with text and audio, and display your “rank Interaction”, which classifies the user according to his work on network ChatOn.
