Spot Mobile International Ltd. Completes Initial Shipment of 10,000 Prepaid GSM Based SIM Cards and Handsets to Major North American Distributor

Distributor to Initially Stock Dedicated Stores in Its U.S. Network of 15,000 Retail Outlets

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - Spot Mobile International Ltd. ("Spot Mobile") (OTCBB: RPID), a mobile virtual network operator offering prepaid wireless service and handsets, today announced the completion of its introductory shipment of 10,000 prepaid GSM based handsets and SIM cards, fulfilling an initial purchase order from a major North American Distributor.

The delivery marks the first mass distribution shipment for Spot Mobile's U.S. launch of its new GSM based handset and SIM card offering, which includes prepaid talk, text and data services for wireless subscribers and nationwide coverage supported by the AT&T and T-Mobile networks. Spot Mobile's prepaid calling service allows subscribers to easily purchase and refill their prepaid accounts so customers only pay for what they need. There are no hidden fees, long term contracts, or credit checks required. Spot Mobile's pay as you go plan allows customers to purchase airtime in convenient affordable denominations from $5 to $50. Spot Mobile airtime, handsets and SIMs will be placed in a variety of the distributor's retail locations in the United States including independent wireless stores, convenience stores, gas stations, bodegas, kiosks and airports. With approximately 290 million wireless subscribers in the U.S., Spot Mobile's prepaid phones (with nationwide calling for 10 cents per minute and texting for 5 cents per message), offer a cost saving solution for millions of cell phone users allowing them to get full-featured nationwide service without being locked into long term contracts with expensive early service termination fees. In addition, our service includes "direct dial" international calling at deeply discounted rates, allowing consumers to call family and friends in their countries of origin with savings not generally attainable from other carriers' cell services.

Commenting on the shipment, Charles Zwebner, CEO and Chairman of Spot Mobile, stated, "We are excited to begin the launch of our GSM based prepaid service in the United States. Our products allow a wireless subscriber to purchase a fully functional mobile device from companies like Motorola, Samsung, LG, Alcatel, for as little as $25 and only prepay for airtime that they use. Our plans offer nationwide domestic service and deeply discounted direct dial international calling. We offer a cost saving solution to customers with freedom and flexibility. This initial shipment of 10,000 units to our North American distribution partner is the first step in what we believe will be an expansive penetration by Spot Mobile into the U.S. market with a cost effective, high quality solution for wireless customers in the U.S."
