Mobile Country Codes (MCC) are used in wireless telephone networks (GSM, CDMA, UMTS, etc.) in order to identify the country which a mobile subscriber belongs to.
In order to uniquely identify a mobile subscribers network the MCC is combined with a Mobile Network Code (MNC).
2011, a young woman named Stephanie Shih was working in New York City at Do Something.org, a nonprofit that helps young people start volunteer campaigns.
Shih was responsible for sending out text messages to teen-agers across the country, alerting them to various altruistic opportunities and encouraging them to become involved in their local communities: running food drives, organizing support groups, getting their cafeterias to recycle more.
“A lot of times, when chatting with young people, it’s clear that they just need someone to listen to them,” one counsellor told me. When an agitated friend texts me bad news (a breakup, a layoff, a sudden rent increase), my instinct is to find a positive response to the predicament (“But you didn’t even like him! Thomas Joiner, a psychology professor at Florida State University and one of the country’s leading suicide experts, pointed out another way in which conversational norms can be counterproductive.
“From a clinical standpoint, one common misstep is tiptoeing around issues and treating them like taboos,” he said.
(Crisis Text Line counsellors are free to give a real or assumed first name to people who text in.) It is also regarded as a mistake to embrace teen-age patois too enthusiastically.
The young people who contact Crisis Text Line might be doing so between classes, while waiting in line for the bus, or before soccer practice.
Silly, prankish responses were not uncommon, but neither were messages of enthusiasm and thanks.
Then, in August, after six months on the job, Shih received a message that left her close to tears for the rest of the day. “He told me not to tell anyone.” A few hours later, another message came: “R u there? The next day, a response came in: “It’s my dad.”Do had no protocol for anything like this, so Shih texted back with the contact information for Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network*)*, the country’s largest anti-sexual-assault organization. “Not knowing if she was safe or had gotten help or would ever get help consumed my thoughts,” Shih told me last fall. “It was like I’d been punched in the stomach.”That week, Lublin and Shih started work on what two years later became Crisis Text Line, the first and only national, 24/7 crisis-intervention hotline to conduct its conversations (the majority of which are with teen-agers) exclusively by text message.
“I sometimes worry that it would come across as too ‘Oh, I got you! Neutral language allows the texter to feel anonymous. But this is precisely what one is not supposed to do when communicating with a teen-ager in crisis.
These people have contacted a stranger for a reason. Often, the conversations are about minor-seeming problems—fights with friends, academic pressure from parents—and the bar for helpfulness is quite low. Nobody ever does that,’ and at other times it’s less explicit; they just want to get everything out, and they provide you with a very, very detailed account.”The etiquette encouraged for counsellors can be surprising. Instead, counsellors are trained to deploy language that at first seems inflammatory: “You must be devastated” is a common refrain; so is “That sounds like torture.” The idea is to validate texters’ feelings and respond in a way that doesn’t belittle them.
But a typo appearing on the cell-phone screen of a distressed teen-ager can undermine the sense of authority he’s looking for.
