TextMe Offers Free Voice Calling for the 4th of July

Users Can Call Friends, Family and Loved Ones Free From Anywhere in the World

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 2, 2012) - TextMe, a leading provider of free SMS texting and voice calling, today announced a free offer for the 4th of July. Users with the app will be able to make calls to mobile or landline phones in the United States from anywhere in the world without incurring charges.

Launched recently, the voice calling services of the TextMe application allow users to make the calls over cellular data networks or over Wi-Fi. TextMe issues phone numbers to all its users including someone with a Wi-Fi-only iPod Touch or iPad. In effect this turns any connected iOS device into a fully featured phone. In addition, TextMe users can engage in free video chats with other users of TextMe.

"Despite the explosive use of electronic messages, calling friends and family is very important, especially on special occasions," said Christophe Bach, co-founder of TextMe. "In celebration of our nation's independence, we are pleased to allow our fellow Americans to call their loved ones on this very special day of the year. This is even more true of those traveling outside of the United States and who will not have easy and cost effective ways to call."

On the 4th of July (pacific standard times), every TextMe user will be able to call free of charge any landline or mobile US phone number. This will allow them to speak with their friends, family and loved ones for the 4th of July celebration. New users can download the free application at
