Adding Metro One's directory assistance search capability to Universal Calling's offerings will provide a valuable convenience feature unavailable previously
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 23, 2007
Universal Calling today announced that it has entered into a multi-year contract with Metro One Telecommunications, Inc. to provide Live 411 directory assistance to users of MobileCaller.Com, CallingCard.com, and other Universal Calling prepaid calling services.
Universal Calling is one of the largest online retailers and master providers of prepaid telecommunications, and Metro One Telecommunications, Inc. is a leading developer of Enhanced Directory Assistance and other enhanced telecom services.
"Metro One worked hard to develop an appropriate offering for our customer base," said Rohit Krishan, president of Universal Calling. "We are excited to bring our customers the same 411 directory assistance service that normal telecom providers offer, but at lower cost that makes it easier to access needed information."
Live 411, Universal Calling's branded Enhanced Directory Assistance service, is staffed by an extensive network of live operators. Features include residential and business directory assistance (including category and reverse phone number/address searches), driving directions, nationwide movie listings and show times, daily horoscopes, and daily and weekly weather forecasts for most major U.S. cities.
At just 75 cents per call, Live 411 offers a 50 percent savings over many major wireless carriers' directory assistance, without any contracts or long-term commitments.
"Adding Metro One's directory assistance search capability to Universal Calling's offerings will provide a valuable convenience feature unavailable previously," said Gary E. Henry, president and CEO of Metro One Telecommunications.
"We are especially excited to be entering into this relationship with Universal Calling because their large customer base has a long history of remaining extremely loyal. We will be adding a tremendous new cost-saving feature for these users and a new source of revenue for Universal Calling."
Universal Calling's calling cards and services are simple and convenient to use and offer industry-low domestic and international rates. Features like pinless dialing, which allows users to call without entering PIN numbers, speed dial, and 24-hour customer service make calling even easier. Services can be used from any phone and with any carrier, and require no contract or long-term commitment.
