demonstrated a new application for Android phones that automatically makes international calls between 51 countries free of charge – no Wi-Fi required.
Called Rebtel Free Call, the app will be in the Android Market by next week. The iPhone and BlackBerry versions are now being prepared for submission to Apple and RIM.
Rebtel Free Call is free to download and free to use. Once installed:
- Select an international phone number from the onboard address book or type in the number.
- Press the Call button.
- Rebtel uses the standard cellular network to connect the call over the Internet.
There is no charge for the call if the initiator and receiver have Rebtel Free Call installed on their phones. Rebtel's standard ultra-low rates will apply if the person abroad receiving the call doesn't have Rebtel Free Call installed on their phone. However, a manual method for making the call free of charge is available at http://www.rebtel.com/en/Learn/Make-Free-Calls/.
