Localphone’s new Android app is free to download from Google play. The app gives users the option to choose between two calling modes – Local and WiFi/3G mode.
When the app is first launched it will be in WiFi calls mode – calls will be made using the users Internet connection. The app will use WiFi when available and 3G when the user is out of range. All the user will pay to call are Localphone’s low rates - there are no local charges using this calling mode.
Users can tap the call mode button to switch to LOCAL mode and calls will be made using a local number, which connects to their international contact. Users will pay Localphone’s low rates plus their mobile provider’s local rates. These calls are usually included in their free minutes. Download the Localphone Android app.
