U.S. service men and women, contractors, government agencies and anyone who needs reliable cell phone service in Iraq, can now call on CelTrek and save up to 75% over rates charged by US carriers.

Not only does CelTrek provide coverage in Iraq with dramatically reduced rates, it also gives users a U.S. phone number and traditional calling features so they can phone just like at home.

CelTrek is alerting agencies in Iraq, Afghanistan, as well as Africa, where their rates are significantly less than Cingular and T-Mobile, about the savings, added convenience, and air-time donations for relief agencies.

Families and loved ones of those serving and working in Iraq will be able to call their CelTrek user by simply dialing the local number they have selected from over 50 U.S. area codes. The caller will not be charged for making an international call.

"With all the uncertainties of trying to conduct business in a war zone, being able to simply dial a local U.S. phone number to reach Iraq is a major relief," says Patrick Hobart, a Boston based engineer. "And the fact that local number works in most other countries in the world is indispensable to operations."

With one CelTrek SIM card, international travelers have the ability to roam in 165 countries while saving up to 90% over other U.S. carriers. That's coverage for 85 percent of the world if you go by the US State Department's total of 193 countries. In addition, CelTrek offers their service on a pre-paid basis, with no contracts or long-term commitments. Customers simply go online at http://www.celtrek.com to purchase their SIM card, phone and airtime amount. Product is shipped directly to their home or office.

"We hope the thousands of dollars these agencies will save in roaming fees will give them more to put towards the good they are trying to accomplish in these troubled areas," said Jenny Callicott, COO of CelTrek.
