Call your friends and family in China to wish them luck and prosperity for the New Year

Happy Chinese New Year! Starting today, the first day of the Chinese New Year, anyone living in 39 countries served by Rebtel can use their mobile phone to call friends and family anywhere in China for free.

"There's no charge to set up an account. No monthly fees. No connection fees. No hidden costs. All you pay for is a local rate call," said Hjalmar Winbladh, Rebtel co-founder and CEO. "This is our gift to the Chinese community around the world - our way of spreading good fortune in celebration of the Year of the Rat."

Rebtel's Million Minute Giveaway runs during the Chinese New Year festivities between the 7th and 21st of February.

Rebtel works with all mobile carriers, all mobile phones without modification, and does not require any change to the user's current mobile service.

"Call your friends and family in China to wish them luck and prosperity for the New Year," said Winbladh. "Gong xi fa cai."

About Rebtel
Rebtel is a global communications company that makes it possible to call any phone, anywhere in the world, for just pennies per minute. Its services can be used with any mobile phone without modification or software downloads. Anyone may make a free 10 minute call to test Rebtel's service. Thereafter, customers only pay for the minutes they use.

In January Rebtel introduced service in Shanghai, making China the 40th Rebtel Country.

After the Million Minute Giveaway, Rebtel Direct Calls to China will cost less than 2¢ per minute from any of the other 39 countries that Rebtel serves. By comparison, AT&T charges $3.50 per minute to call a mobile phone in China from a mobile phone in the U.S. That same call from the U.K. using Vodafone costs $3.33 per minute. From Canada, the cost per minute for calls to China on TELUS Mobility can be as low as 8¢ per minute - but only with an $8.00 or $12.00 per month special service plan.

Rebtel Smart Calls between the 40 countries served by Rebtel are always free and only one of the two people on a call needs to be a Rebtel customer.
