Vodafone lets customers use their mobiles to London pay taxi fares

You can navigate with it and do your shopping with it. But now you can add paying for a cab to the things you can do with your phone. Vodafone is introducing a scheme that allows customers of London black cabs who find themselves short of cash for the ride home to send a text with the vehicle’s licence number to a central code and the amount owed is charged to their phone account.Vodafone is also equipping more than 500 branded cabs with chargers for a range of mobiles, including smartphones such as iPhones and BlackBerrys.To read this report in The Guardian in full, see:
