Have you heard of Hike Total? It is a customized version of Android designed to enable the use of certain services without an active Internet connection in collaboration with mobile data network.
Hike Total is built on top of USSD, a communication protocol supported by nearly all GSM phones that’s been used by operators to deliver all kinds of services for nearly as long as mobile phones have been around.
