Is the email about the Sony Ericsson free phone true — or is it an urban legend or hoax?
Sony Ericsson Free Phone
Our main competitor, Nokia, is giving free mobile phones away on the Internet.
Here at Ericsson we want to counter their offer. So we are giving our newest WAP-phones
away as well. They are specially developed for Internet happy customers who value
cutting edge technology. By giving free phones away, we get valuable customer feedback
and a great Word-of-Mouth effect. All you have to do, is to forward this message
to 8 friends. After two weeks delivery time, you will receive a Ericsson T18. If
you forward it to 20 friends, you will receive the brand new Ericsson R320 WAP-phone.
It is technically impossible to track forwarded
email AND no company does business this way.
