GO800 Texting Service Connects Consumers to BP Hotline

Text OILSPILL to 46800 (GO800)

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 4, 2010) -  GoIP Global, Inc., (PINKSHEETS: GOIG) NEW YORK... In response to the unprecedented economic and ecological impact caused by the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, GO800 Corp (a GOIP Global subsidiary) has created a keyword to link consumers to the BP hotline through its free texting service. Consumers can text OILSPILL to 46800 (which spells "GO800" when dialed out) and within 10 seconds, they will be linked with the BP Oil Spill Hotline.

According to Ike Sutton, CEO, the company is making its service available for the benefit of anyone stricken by the disaster. "Although BP is not our client, the needs of the community outweigh signing up a new client at this moment. We want to provide immediate assistance and this situation underscores the benefits of our technology. Most consumers may not remember the BP Hotline (866-448-5816), but if they text OILSPILL to 46800, that is a much simpler process," he explained.

GO800 ( is a simple and free Text/SMS service that has combined the power of text with connectivity to bring cell phone users into direct and instant contact with companies, services, reservation systems and a multitude of other business and consumer offerings.

Press reports note that consumers can call the BP Hotline to receive information on protective measures that can be taken, report an oiled shoreline and/or request volunteer information.
