LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - May 03, 2007) - letsroam™ Limited have launched their NEW global SIM card which provides Free roaming in over 50 countries and operates in over 90! The service simply requires the customer to replace the SIM in their unlocked GSM phone before traveling.

letsroam™'s parent company 1st4phonecards.com has been selling international phone cards since 2001. In recent years customers have repeatedly asked for cheaper calls directly from their mobile phones. Shane Siggins, the managing director of letsroam™ stated:

"letsroam™ was created as a direct result of customer enquiries for a low cost mobile service when travelling. Customers are not happy paying high hotel phone or roaming costs. It's a natural evolvement to our highly acclaimed 'Card4anywhere' product which was launched back in 2001. This new service allows customers to make cheap calls directly from their mobile phone and dramatically reduce their roaming costs when abroad, not just in Europe but many other countries too. We're really excited about the potential reach of the new product, not just to individuals but to businesses too, for which we have incorporated conference call functionality into the letsroam™ service. We hope to offer other value added services to businesses in the next few months."

So how much does it cost to receive a call ? It is totally free to receive a call in Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belgium, Bosnia / Herzegowina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia Republic, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Northern Ireland), Uruguay and Yugoslavia / Serbia. There are also more countries in test which should be added to the list soon..... and to make a call ?

Calls made from the letsroam™ SIM are very low cost. For example calling from Israel to the UK is just 12p/min, Australia to UK just 20p/min, Spain to the UK just 22p/min. Calls to mobiles are a little higher but the rates are certainly good enough to generate much interest. Add in a conference call to London for just 3p/min more and another to the USA for just 3p/min and you have a great companion for business users too!.

Coverage just doesn't include those in the EU zone, where roaming is a topical subject, but it extends to some areas not expected such as Brazil, Iraq and the UAE to mention a few; these are areas normally associated with high roaming costs. One might expect a long contract for this service but not so.

letsroam™ is a 'pay as you go' product, offering initial start balances of 5 Pounds Sterling to 50 Pounds Sterling. Top-up can be purchased instantly online 24/7 and emailed to the user anywhere in the world. For just 29.99 Pounds Sterling a UK customer can have a SIM delivered to their door with 5 Pounds Sterling credit!

Times are changing and it is the customer who is going to benefit from products like letsroam™ and other innovative ideas in the future ! For more information see www.letsroam.com
