Get Your Mobile Phone Ready for Free Internet Calls in Seconds, With a New Feature From Challenger mobile™

Anyone Who Signs Up With Challenger mobile™, the New Mobile Internet Telephony Service, Will Instantly Receive All Their Phone Settings in a Text Message

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 19, 2007 -- Challenger mobile™ (www.challengermobile.com), the pioneering global telecom service, has introduced a feature that dramatically shortens its sign up process: instant configuration via text message. When customers have completed their quick, one-page online registration and activated their account they immediately receive all the settings they need to start using the service -- straight into their mobile handset.

The new feature, released less than 3 months after the service's initial beta launch, is part of Challenger mobile's planned strategy to make free global telephony more readily available to people with a mobile phone that supports internet calls. The sign up process is a quick job in three easy steps, leaving the customer with a service that allows free mobile internet calls worldwide (i.e. calls routed via the internet, from one internet enabled mobile phone to another) whenever they are in a WiFi zone.

"Challenger mobile now configures quickly and automatically once you have activated your account, allowing people with a mobile phone that supports internet calls -- like the Nokia Eseries and Nokia N80ie -- to make and receive free internet calls around the world," says Carl-Johan Grund, Vice President of Challenger mobile.

"We will continue to add new features that enhance our free global telephony service. The remarkably fast-growing presence of wireless internet is a fantastic opportunity for our company to grow and our exceptional development team is both passionate and ready for taking the innovative lead in the market," Carl-Johan Grund concludes.

Today Challenger mobile™ works on phones that support internet calls, such as the Nokia Eseries. To find out more about which phones the service works on or to register an interest in upcoming features and service releases, visit www.challengermobile.com.
