Will also include in-app purchases; could lead to sharp rise in unauthorised billing.

If you are a Vodafone or airtel subscriber owning a Nokia handset, then you can now download content from Nokia’s content store , and pay for it through your monthly mobile phone bills. If you are a prepaid customer instead, the amount will be taken off from your balance talktime. This move will offer respite to those who are uncomfortable using credit cards to purchase apps from the store.
The store features over one lakh apps and content modules, and the company suggests that its India store caters to over than 60 million downloads a month. Until now, consumers could purchase premium content only using credit cards. Moreover, subscribers of these two service providers will also be able to avail”in-app” purchases along with additional price points, all through their monthly bills. Having said that though, people would now have to be doubly careful about the apps they download, considering that they will find out about purchases only after the bill comes in.
Looking at how Apple is facing severe criticism about its in-app billing mechanism , make sure you keep a check on how you use your handset, or you just might end up with an inflated bill, with purchases you didn’t want to make in the first place.
