8x8 announces the release of "8x8 Virtual Office Mobile
," a WiFi-driven extension of the 8x8 Virtual Office VoIP business phone service customized for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.
Available as a free download in the App Store, "8x8 Virtual Office Mobile
" enables subscribers to utilize their Virtual Office phone number and service remotely from within any WiFi zone. "Virtual Office Mobile" essentially converts an iPhone or iPod Touch to a Virtual Office extension, equipped with the features, functionality and built-in cost savings of the powerful 8x8 Virtual Office hosted PBX phone service, including unlimited inbound and outbound domestic calling as well as overseas calling at competitive 8x8 international rates. Inbound calls to the Virtual Office extension can be retrieved from either an 8x8 IP desktop phone, the 8x8 Virtual Office Pro unified communications portal or the iPhone/iPod Touch mobile handset. Outbound calls can be made directly through the mobile handset just as with any extension on the Virtual Office service. Users can also perform functions such as extension dialing, call transfers, 3-way calling, and voicemail notification and retrieval.
