TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 14, 2005) -

Also confirms guidance as results continue to be strong

Wireless Age Communications, Inc. (OTCBB:WLSA), a leading supplier of solutions to the Canadian wireless communications industry, today announced on behalf of the Board of Directors that John Simmonds has stepped down as CEO, effective September 12, 2005, and Brad Poulos, the current President has been appointed to the position. Mr. Simmonds will remain Chairman.

The company has been led by Mr. Simmonds since March of 2003, and during that time several acquisitions have been made, and the company's revenues and earnings have grown considerably. He stated that the change is part of a succession that has been planned for several months, since the acquisition of mmwave Technologies from Mr. Poulos and his former partners. "The Board's priority is to ensure the continued growth of Wireless Age for the foreseeable future," he said. "We have a talented and seasoned management group and we are very pleased to have Brad Poulos assume the responsibility for leading the company as we move into the company's next phase of growth."

As Chairman, Mr. Simmonds will continue to be involved in corporate governance and strategic matters.

"I am honored to be appointed CEO of Wireless Age," Mr. Poulos said. "I am enthusiastic about our prospects and look forward to building on the strong foundation that John has developed. We plan to continue to grow this company and capture a significant part of the growth that the wireless industry promises for the next several years. I'm especially pleased that John will remain in the position of Chairman, and that we can continue to benefit from his experience and creativity."

The company management also confirmed previously-issued guidance. Revenues in each of the past two months were approximately $2.2 Million, and management believes that the company remains on track to achieve earnings in the range of $0.05 per share.
