Callers Will Be Entertained While Waiting to Connect

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 25, 2006 -- Preferred Voice, Inc. (OTC BB: PFVI), a leading provider of mobile personalization and content services announced today that they have signed a contract with MetroPCS Communications, Inc., to provide their ringback tone platform. The Preferred Voice platform replaces the traditional ringing sound (or ringback) heard by the calling party when a call is connecting to a wireless, wireline, or broadband connection. Preferred Voice provides a complete end-to-end solution including the technology platform, proprietary ringback software, and a robust content library.

The application will enable MetroPCS subscribers to entertain callers who are waiting for them to answer by playing various types of music, movie sound clips, and greetings from numerous celebrities instead of the traditional 'ring, ring.'
