zerofone Stops Outrageous Mobile Long Distance and Roaming Charges

Customers Can Save 90% or More on Cell Phone Bills Without Switching Phones or Carriers

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2011) - Don't accept excessive long distance and roaming charges any longer. With its FREE app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, zerofone offers high-quality, hassle-free mobile calling, letting users enjoy huge savings while staying connected with friends, family and business associates worldwide.

zerofone lets callers bypass their cell company's voice network, using WiFi or 3G instead. With zerofone, you get super low long distance rates, no roaming* and no surprise charges.

"I created zerofone because I was sick and tired of paying ridiculous wireless bills, especially for long distance and roaming," says Benjamin Rovet, a telecom lawyer and founder of Zerofone Inc. "I knew there was a better way to make clear and reliable mobile long distance calls that wouldn't attract cell charges or use up cell minutes."

With zerofone, you pay as little as 1.4¢ per minute to call anywhere in Canada or the U.S. and 2.2¢ per minute to call many overseas destinations including China, India and most of Europe. These calls don't use cell minutes, which may enable users to downgrade to a cheaper cell phone plan.

"Wireless carriers normally charge 30¢ to 40¢ per minute for North American long distance and, with roaming charges, calls can cost as much as $1.50 per minute," says Mr. Rovet. "zerofone can save people thousands of dollars annually."

The zerofone app is FREE and comes with a 10-minute FREE Trial. After that, users subscribe to one of zerofone's low-cost calling packages, contract-free. North American packages start at just $4.99/month, while International packages start at $7.99/month. Travel Packs, online phone numbers, and other innovative features are also available.
