coconut phone = msn messenger
No so much for gossip but occasionally there is some ha ha. I dubbed it that because it is a free way to talk.
Here I consider using the phone a bit of a luxury - texts costs 25 cents and talking much more per min so you can imagine how fast phone cards go and how useful it is to have coconut phone for making plans and helping our phone budgets in between Digicell double credit days. http://www.digicell.bz/package.htm
that gives you an idea of what it costs.
