London, UK (PRWEB) March 16, 2006
Mobile phones have become an integral part of every modern student's life, and even when travelling internationally, students expect to stay connected via their mobile phone. The rise in usage and demand is replicated in every corner of the globe, and with ever-decreasing technology and service costs, mobile phones are more accessible than ever. To meet the demand for international mobile service among students, InternationalStudent.com and Fonepool.com announce their partnership to make Fonepool's mobile products available to InternationalStudent.com customers.
Ross Mason, International Director for InternationalStudent.com states, "Keeping students connected when studying internationally is of major importance to ease their transition to a new culture, and new surroundings. Following the 2005 London bombings, many institutions, such as Michigan State University, have taken it a step further by making mobile phones an obligatory requirement for overseas programs. Other long-running work and study abroad programs are following suit."
InternationalStudent.com is proud to announce its partnership with Fonepool.com to offer mobile phones and sim cards to students participating in work, study and travel programs in the US. "The new partnership allows us to offer these products at the most competitive market rates. Students can now buy their cell phone, or sim card, for those with a US-compatible mobile phone, and use this when they are in the US. As the service is prepaid there are no contracts or credit checks and they simply add credit as and when they need it."
The Fonepool.com service also has the benefits of offering students a free international calling account on sign up, free call credit, free delivery, text message top up service
and buy-back service to cash in the phone when moving back home. In addition, students receive free international delivery, so they have their US contact phone number before they travel to the US.
Colman Lydon, President and Founder of Fonepool Inc, states, "We have worked hard over the past three years to develop the most suitable US mobile phone solution for our clients. I am delighted InternationalStudent.com have elected to partner with Fonepool.com, we are looking forward to assisting their students with their US mobile phone requirements."
