Polar Wireless (OTCBB:BCDI) is pleased to announce the Beta launch of their global MVNO solution that eliminates roaming charges for customers worldwide. "This is the main milestone we have been striving to achieve that dramatically reduces the exorbitant fees imposed on the 700 million customers globally, who travel outside of their home market annually,"- stated Mr. Kelly O'Dea, CEO of Polar Wireless.

The Beta launch will take place in Eastern Europe and Russia, providing the testing data required prior to a full-scale launch of the Polar Wireless solution to customers around the world. "Initial customer reaction and results are already exceeding our expectations," added Vlad Allen CTO of Polar Wireless.

Polar Wireless plans on releasing up to 50,000 of their proprietary solution chips, called the Global Key™, in Q1 2011 prior to the global rollout in Q2.

Polar Wireless subscribers who have GSM handsets will be able travel to over 213 countries and operate on over 500 partner carrier networks seamlessly, without incurring roaming fees from their home carrier and without changing their existing mobile number or handset

- Polar Wireless will provide service not only for Voice but also for Data, SMS and MMS

- Unlike mobile services such as Skype or Google Talk that require WIFI (not available everywhere) or Data (which is as expensive, if not more, than voice roaming) access to utilize those services, Polar Wireless Corp. will provide carrier grade connectivity via standard cell phone towers globally. 

- The unique solution is activated through the Polar Wireless chip, called the Global Key™, a multifunctional miniature electronic device for mobile handsets. Its form is an ultra thin SIM-like card that is inserted into the user's handset along with the main operator's SIM card. Due to its ultra-thin, single-chip design, it is compatible with most of the GSM handsets which account for over 80% of the global handset market. 

- Rather than inserting different SIM cards when travelling to different parts of the world, the Polar Wireless chip only needs to be inserted once as it provides worldwide connectivity.

- The Polar Wireless service activates automatically when a subscriber enters a roaming zone. Since subscribers are able to maintain their current mobile number and handset while roaming, incoming callers do not need to dial new contact numbers. Additionally when subscribers call their contacts, their existing mobile number is displayed as the caller ID. 

- The Polar Wireless service is designed around user convenience and simplicity. Polar Wireless customers will continue dialing directly as they usually do. No change in user habit is required, no new menus, no local access numbers or pin codes.

- Polar Wireless provides one simple payment account for all the services being offered, providing the most transparency possible to the customer at all times. Depending on the number dialed, Polar Wireless will automatically select the most cost effective route to place the call. 

- Subscribers will not need to alter their existing carrier agreements and will not see additional charges on their existing carrier bills.
