i don't understand the business model here.

sending texts and making phone calls costs money.

how does this support itself?

i do not think you can autobill from the 212 area code. 999 or whatever, sure, but how do these guys keep ahead of costs?

Morganovich, I assume you have to register on their website & pay up front.

amdeli-

i looked at their site and did not see anything like that.

i suspect this may be a teaser that moves to a pay model when it takes off.

or, they could be really slick and add advertising into the text and phone content like "hey, thanks for the GUCCI bag you got me...."

though i have doubts about advertisers embracing the platform.

They can find lots of customers for fake girlfriends on economy based blogs.
