You can also use it when you're checking to see if anyone's in the room. It means something like: "Who's there?" / "Anybody there?"keymistress wrote:actually does it have any meaning? is it just like "hello" in english?:D

もし comes from the 敬語 form of 言う, 垂ｵます. When telephones were first introduced into japan, the line quality was bad, and you generally had to say things twice. Thus, it became もしもし.
