San Carlos, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2008
MENLO PARK, CA - (May 28, 2008) - Jaxtr™, the world's leading social communications company, today announces another expansion of its unique service. The company now offers the more than 170 million residents of Bahrain, Croatia, Georgia, Greece, Jordan, South Korea, Lithuania, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand the ability to call friends and family abroad for the same cost, and with the same convenience, as placing a local call. To bypass expensive international phone charges, callers can now get a free local number in their country from jaxtr to dial directly - on any mobile or landline phone - without the hassle of extra numbers or access codes. This is a permanent number that callers can save in their address book and use to dial directly each time they want to call their friend abroad.
According to jaxtr Co-founder Phillip Mobin, "It's fast, easy and convenient, and it's as worry-free as using your local minutes to call a friend domestically. Plus, jaxtr works without a download or even a computer. Say you're sitting in your car at a red light, you don't have to fumble with numbers or worry about high rates. Simply select your friend's name on your mobile phone and push talk. That's it. Immediately, you'll be talking with your cousin in London just as if he or she was across town."
More than 10 million people in 220 countries around the world use jaxtr. In fact, members can receive jaxtr calls in any country in the world that has phone service. Since 2007, jaxtr has offered a wide-array of features to get in touch and stay in touch with people who share interests and activities or to explore the interests and activities of others, including the ability to:
· connect with friends worldwide through café jaxtr and widgets for blogs and social networking profiles*;
· make free calls to other jaxtr members from any mobile or landline phone without downloads or computers, and send free international SMS;
· manage calls with call forwarding to any phone and keep your number private.
