Vodafone's Second Life
Go to the island and Rachel, whose avatar's name is Lucy, will explain how it all works. With InsideOut, Rachel/Lucy says that people only communicate through their avatar identities and they are assigned virtual phone numbers. The so-called "virtual" phone numbers actually come from a pool of 100 Vodafone numbers from Germany, which could lead to some bill shock if users aren't careful. So far, InsideOut has 64 members.
