247MGI Completes VOIP Asset Acquisition

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - January 7, 2008) - 247MGI Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TOFS) ("247MGI") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Sovereign Research, LLC has acquired all of the assets of SOYO Group, Inc.'s (a publicly traded company on the OTCBB) VOIP division in an all stock transaction.

247MGI has issued SOYO 40 million shares of restricted common stock with resale restrictions. After the shares become eligible for resale under rule 144 for the next 2 years SOYO will only be able to sell 250,000 per quarter after TOFS has filed its financial report. The resale also has a daily limitation of only 25,000 per day until it has reached 250,000 for the quarter. After the resale restrictions SOYO will be limited to the restrictions of resale under rule 144. 247MGI was able to purchase these Assets from SOYO because SOYO is focusing more on the consumer electronics, such as Bluetooth products, LCD TVs, and LCD monitors.

247MGI has acquired an operation VOIP infrastructure, over 4,000 items of inventory, Direct Inbound Dial ("DID") numbers, and the domain name www.z-connect.net. The Assets purchased are able to handle 125 calls every second with a maximum of 5000 concurrent calls and up to 1.2 million users. 247MGI acquired 2 trunk lines for the DID (Direct Inward Dialing) number that cover the whole Southern California and multiple cites in Florida.

Z-Connect in the past sold over 10,000 devices with 2,000 customers' 521 online users including AZU. SOYO VOIP service is based on a flexible pay-as-you-go strategy, enabling users to prepay for minutes, and make international and long-distance calls at extremely low rates. "Peer-to-peer" calls between Z-Connect telephones and routers within the Z-Connect Network are always free, anywhere in the world. 247MGI did not acquire any of the customer accounts as part of the acquisition only the Assets, but has agreed to take over all the customer accounts and service them at no additional cost to 247MGI.

247MGI plans on integrating the VOIP system into its Player Application therefore enabling peer-to-peer calls without any additional cost to the end user. 247MGI also plans on marketing the VOIP service using the Player App instead of selling typical phone hardware.
