No one in their right mind uses their mobile carrier to make calls from the US to the Philippines - the rates are ridiculous
Stockholm, Sweden (PRWEB) May 12, 2008
Calling the Philippines from the U.S. got a whole lot easier and cheaper today from any phone, anywhere, any time day or night with Rebtel's move to beat even the best calling cards available.
"Use your mobile. Use a pay phone. We don't care. The rates are the same. And the best part is with Rebtel you only pay for the minutes you use. No sign up fees. No contracts. No connection charges, surcharges or minute rounding," said Hjalmar Winbladh, co-founder and president of Rebtel.
Rebtel http://www.rebtel.com, the people's global communications company, today slashed its rates on calls to the Philippines from the U.S. to just 12¢ per minute for calls to landlines or 14¢ per minute to mobile phones.
Rebtel can be used with any mobile phone without modification or software downloads, and does not require any change to customers' existing plans with their mobile operator. There is no charge to set up a Rebtel account. And, all newcomers get a free 10 minute call to test the service. Thereafter, customers only pay for the minutes they use.
"No one in their right mind uses their mobile carrier to make calls from the US to the Philippines - the rates are ridiculous," said Winbladh. "And everyone knows that calling cards are a rip-off. It's common knowledge that they only deliver 60 percent of the minutes they promise and that fraudulent phone cards are costing consumers in the U.S. alone more than $1 million a day. That's why everyone keeps trying new ones in the hope of finding an honest card. Well, forget it. Just switch to Rebtel."
How Rebtel works
Rebtel gives people local phone numbers in their country that connect them directly with their friends, family or work colleagues who live abroad.
By making all calls local, people can call each other as often as they like and talk as long as they want, for little or nothing more than the cost of the local calls.
That means, for example, Rebtel gives someone living in San Francisco a local San Francisco phone number that connects them directly to their friend or family member in Manila. There's no PIN number to enter or long string of numbers. Just dial a local phone number and Rebtel connects the call to the Philippines.
Getting started is fast and easy:
1. Go to http://www.rebtel.com and enter your mobile number and your friend's number abroad.
2. Rebtel creates a local number and sends it in a text message (SMS) to your phone.
3. Save the number in your phone's address book and use it any time to call your friend abroad.
"Our mission is very straightforward - we're determined to create the best global calling service by allowing users to call anywhere for the cost of a local call," said Winbladh.
