Hold-Free Networks Is CTIA 2011 Hot for the Holidays Awards Finalist

Winners Announced at CTIA ENTERPRISE & APPLICATIONS™ 2011 in San Diego

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 29, 2011) - Hold-Free Networks is a finalist in the Globetrotter category in the CTIA 2011 Hot for the Holidays Awards competition. Voted on by a panel of mobile consumer electronics media and analysts, Hold-Free was viewed as one of the most innovative, functional, creative and cutting-edge mobile consumer applications for the holiday season. Winners will be announced at CTIA ENTERPRISE & APPLICATIONS™ 2011, which takes place at the San Diego Convention Center on October 11-13.

Hold-Free Networks is putting an end to the familiar customer service frustration of searching for a Toll Free number to dial, navigating through confusing touch tone menus, repeatedly entering account data, and then waiting on hold for assistance. This is replaced by an experience in which the consumer presses a couple of buttons on a Smartphone application -- and then receives a call from an agent who already knows the consumer's name and reason for requesting support.

"We have been looking forward to CTIA ENTERPRISE & APPLICATIONS for quite some time," said Hold-Free Networks CEO Lance Fried. "Being named as a finalist for a Hot for the Holidays Award makes this event even more special. We can't wait to see everyone here in San Diego in October!"

CTIA 2011 Hot for the Holidays Awards winners will be announced at a live ceremony from the CTIA ENTERPRISE & APPLICATIONS exhibit floor (Booth 145) on Wednesday, October 12 at 2:00 p.m. PDT. One winner will be selected from each of the 10 categories. This year's judges included media and industry analysts from: BNET, Current Analysis, Electronista, FierceMobileHealthCare, IDC, Lab Reviews, Light Reading, Mashable, PhoneDog, PhoneScoop, San Jose Fitness Examiner, SplatF, The New York Times, Wired and Wireless Week. Awards submissions will be prominently displayed in a special showcase on the exhibit floor at the CTIA show in October.

In addition to the 10 awards categories, consumers have an opportunity to vote for their favorite by choosing the "CTIA 2011 Hottest Web Pick" at Online voting closes on Monday, October 10, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. PDT. Additionally, show attendees will be able to view all submissions onsite within the Hot for the Holidays Showcase, Booth 145. The entry that earns the most text votes onsite will win the title of "CTIA 2011 Hottest in Show."
