Vonage has released Time to Call™, the first downloadable app that allows pay-per-call international dialing to more than 190 countries. It is available globally today and downloadable in 87 iTunes stores. The Time to Call app works for the iPhone and allows customers to make 15-minute international calls at around half the cost most major mobile carriers charge with an easy payment system directly through iTunes.
“Not only does this service offer tremendous value for international callers dialing from their home countries, it also provides a great solution for international travelers who want to avoid the bill shock associated with international calls and roaming charges when they call back home. Time to Call requires far less effort than calling card services and other international calling plan options, and is substantially less expensive than dialing direct through a mobile carrier. It’s simple, fast and fair.”
–Marc Lefar, CEO of Vonage.
The benefit of Time to Call is that there is no ongoing commitment and calling is quick and easy. After download, customers simply select the country they want to call, touch the “Buy” button, enter their iTunes credentials, and then make a call either from their address book or by manually dialing the number.
The prices are reasonable with fifteen-minute calls ranging from $0.99 to $1.99, with an additional 90 countries that a customer can call for a higher rate of $9.99. The same rates apply to both landlines and mobile phones, and Time to Call users do not need to have a Vonage home phone service subscription. The app also works on Wi-Fi worldwide and is available for use on 3G wireless networks in U.S. and Canada.
As a special offer Vonage is offering free international calling- up to 15 minutes to 100 countries for a limited time. The Free trial is available with any download of the app which you can find on iTunes or, for more information, visit the Vonage Mobile Homepage.
