Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) July 16, 2008
Jaxtr (http://www.jaxtr.com), the company that links your phone to the Web, now offers local phone numbers in India. Jaxtr is the first and only company to offer its members the ability to bypass expensive international toll charges by calling a local Indian number to reach friends and family abroad-cheaply and easily-from any ordinary mobile or landline phone.
"Today, thousands of conversations just don't happen because it's too expensive and inconvenient to place international calls on the go," said Phillip Mobin, CTO and co-founder of jaxtr. "By linking their phones to the Web, jaxtr's Indian members can now make affordable international calls directly from their mobile phones. It's as simple as calling a friend down the street."
The Indian jaxtr numbers can be used to call other jaxtr members for free. And jaxtr members can bypass expensive international phone charges to call friends, family and business contacts in the United States, Canada and many other countries for as little as 0.43 INR (43 paisa or 0.01 USD) per minute. Landline and mobile charges to call the Indian jaxtr number also apply.
Unlike calling cards that require multiple steps and extra numbers for each call, jaxtr simply provides you with one, permanent number that you save to your phone. Each time you want to call your overseas contact, use their jaxtr number and it's as easy and direct as making a local call. Plus, callers can use any ordinary mobile or landline phone, without downloading extra applications or being tethered to a computer.
