TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2009)Roam Simple (www.roamsimple.com), a leading Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) today launched its international BlackBerry SIM Card Service, (http://www.roamsimple.com/products/Roam-Simple-World-BlackBerry-SIM-Card.aspx).

Supporting the entire line of BlackBerry devices and targeted specifically towards global business travelers, the service delivers savings of up to 90% on international roaming data fees. The service supports BlackBerry® Internet Service as well as BlackBerry® Enterprise Server platforms, thus making the service accessible to travelers whether they work for small or large businesses. In addition, voice roaming rates compared to those offered by international phone companies as well as North American operators are substantially lower using Roam Simple's service.

This easy-to-use offering is designed for the international traveler requiring a simple, convenient and inexpensive way to keep in touch with business associates, family and friends while on the road. All travelers need to do is simply place Roam Simple's international BlackBerry SIM card into their unlocked BlackBerry handset The traveler's email address and all vital information is automatically updated within seconds. Prior to departure the service is automatically set up with two telephone numbers – an international number and a North American number with an area code of the subscriber's choosing.

"Frequent business travelers are among the world's most demanding travelers, insisting on seamless voice and data telecommunications wherever and whenever they travel", said Amin Jadavji. "Our almost ten years of expertise in the space and deep relationships with global carriers such as o2 Telefonica allow us to serve our clients better than our industry peers. And in today's cost-conscious environment, our customers appreciate the savings we're able to deliver."

This service delivers three key cost-reduction benefits to Roam Simple's growing subscriber base:

  • First, with the growing importance of e-mail as a mode of staying in touch, Roam Simple bills for data services by the kilobyte (KB), and unlike other companies, does not round up usage. For instance a traveler on the Roger's network will be charged in increments of 20KB if they use only 3KB. Using Roam Simple's service that same traveler will only be charged for 3KB – a big difference
  • Second, Roam Simple customizes its many rate plans around each of their corporate customers' roaming trends. The result: additional savings over and above the company's already-low rates
  • Third, since each subscriber can select a North American area code of their choosing prior to departure through the Roam Simple Direct Connect service, (http://www.roamsimple.com/static/DirectConnect.aspx) which allows contacts in their home area code to call them without charge (local calls in North America are free). The result: lower calling costs for each local contact
