    We already sort of do. Every time I contact a phone of this particular carrier, before actually connecting the call they play an ad requesting me to switch to their network.

    If you have Truecaller installed, then you already do see an ad when you get a call.

    @YuganshT79 Truecaller isn't something you should have installed anyway.

    @filthyranter Yeah I don't have it installed on my device, but I know they show ads on every call.
    Saw it on my friends device

    Well it’s not such a bad idea under certain circumstances.

    If the call would be free of charge and have same requirements like call to emergency number (like no sim card or valid account) I want that.
    It would increase the phone call accessibility and probably help some people.

    It’s not a bad idea. It could make calls cheaper for people who want it, like ads on Kindles.

    Watch 2 ads to avoid ad interruptions during the call. 🤐(Wht Ytube does now 😑)

    I was wondering if on the google smart screen home devices, after giving the command “google show me how to properly cut onions” is it going to show you a 10 second ad before playing your video or prompt you for google red before hand?

    And I feel sorry for anyone that falls into the Facebook video chat device. Facebook. Has only just proven their intentions with privacy. They profit off of knowing about you. Why would you buy a video monitoring device to place in your home from a company that profits off of monitoring you.
