Truphone (http://www.truphone.com), a global
mobile service provider, has added Truphone
Anywhere functionality to its iPhone application,
enabling users to make international calls across
the Internet for as little as £0.03/$0.06
[UK/Rest of World] per minute even when they’re
not connected to the Internet.
Inbound Truphone calling on the iPhone is also
added for the first time, making it possible to
enjoy free Truphone calls between two iPhones.
Truphone Anywhere works in 33 countries around
the world. Truphone Anywhere doesn’t require a
user to remember what to do. Whenever an
international number is dialed from outside
Wi-Fi, Truphone Anywhere simply asks whether
he/she wants to make a Truphone call. The user
simply accepts, and Truphone connects the call.
The second new key feature — inbound calling for
Truphone on the iPhone — works in all countries.
Using the new “presence” feature, iPhone users
can see which of their other Truphone-using
contacts are online, including contacts who also
have Truphone on their iPhone.
