Touch Mobile (www.touch.com) is making its debut at Fry's Electronics with a holiday offer making its unique brand of high-quality, affordable, cloud-based voice over 4G LTE (VoLTE) wireless service even more affordable. With unlimited talk, text and data plans starting at only $20 per month, Touch Mobile is the first 100 percent data and cloud-based brand to become available in retail stores for consumers who want cutting edge wireless access at half the price and without a contract. For a limited time, the Touch Mobile Samsung Galaxy Victory will be available at FRY's for only $50 (a 68% savings) and the Touch Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 is for sale at only $150, with no contract required. These holiday savings are available immediately at Fry's retail locations & Frys.com while quantities last, expiring December 26th, 2014.

More than 100 million people around the country already utilize no contract, prepaid wireless service. With Touch Mobile's availability at Fry's Electronics, consumers will have even more access to prepaid 4G LTE service at an incredible price. What sets Touch Mobile apart from other wireless brands is its ability to offer unlimited calling through the use of Wi-Fi and voice-over 4G LTE technology. A quick search online will reveal that multiple device manufacturers and wireless brands are promoting VoLTE. When Wi-Fi connectivity is not available, Touch Mobile's proprietary software will seamlessly transfer calls between 4G LTE, 3G and 2G/CDMA networks based on the best available call quality option at any given time. Touch Mobile's debut at Fry's marks the first time that this technology will be made available to the public at retail stores, without a credit check or contract.

As an added value, Touch Mobile users can access their account and check messages from any Internet enabled device by signing in at Touch.com or from wireless devices via the Touch Android app. The connect everywhere access Touch Mobile provides is particularly handy for users if they lose or break their phone, want to share their account with loved ones or otherwise wish to stay connected when their phone isn't within reach. Touch Mobile users can also leverage Wi-Fi networks when travelling abroad and use their phone just as they would when in the U.S., without any additional charges.

"Many people are either paying too much for wireless minutes they don't need or have signed up with discount providers that offer sub-par quality. With the launch of Touch Mobile at Fry's, we're making cutting-edge technology and 4G LTE services affordable and available to the millions of people who either can't or simply do not want to pay for their wireless using a contract plan," said Rich Wong, Touch Mobile's Senior Vice President of Business Development. "Accessible Wi-Fi networks are becoming common place, but when they're unavailable, our VoLTE technology creates a clear connection at a low cost, which allows us to pass major savings onto the consumer."

Touch Mobile is available nationwide at independent wireless retailers and through its partnership with Fry's Electronics. A list of dealers can be found online at www.touch.com.

Touch Mobile feature highlights include:

  • First Of Its Kind At Retail: Touch Mobile provides VoLTE access to the millions of wireless consumers who prefer to purchase and re-up their wireless plans in retail stores, without any contract, credit check or hidden fees.
  • Use Your Touch Mobile Number on Multiple Devices: Touch Mobile subscribers can stay connected and use their number, even if they don't have their phone with them by logging onto Touch.com from a PC or by using the free Touch Mobile app on Android tablets.
  • International Access: Users can leverage Wi-Fi networks to initiate and receive both calls and text messages, as well as check their voicemail, as if they were in the U.S. by using their Touch Mobile phone or another device, without additional charges.
  • Four Day Payment Grace Period: When a payment is late due to unforeseen circumstances, Touch Mobile grants users a four day grace period during which the user can still access their number to make calls, access voicemail, send and receive texts messages via available Wi-Fi networks.
  • No Extra Charge For 4G LTE: Unlike some other Wi-Fi and VoIP based carriers, there are no extra fees for when users connect to 4G LTE networks.
  • Visual Voicemail: While some competitors charge extra for this service, visual voicemail is free on all Touch Mobile plans.
  • Domestic Internal Phone Support: With the belief that quality customer service should not be credit card or contract dependent, Touch Mobile's phone support is handled in-house from its company headquarters to provide the best experience possible.
  • Easy Usage Checking: Instead of having users text a number to check their data usage, subscribers can easily monitor their personal data usage through their phone or elsewhere using the Touch Account app.
