BlackBerry Messenger 7 Receives Free WiFi Voice Calls for BBM Contacts

Comments

BBM 7 launched with free BBM WiFi Voice Chat that allows users to call anyone on their BBM contacts list for free.

The rates seem pretty competitive, and it lists the following for the US:

Fixed: $0.020/min
Mobile: $0.020/min
SMS: $0.124/msg

You can find out more about their rates from their site.

Truphone, a global provider of low cost international mobile calls, has announced the launch of Truphone Business, a BlackBerry application enabling business users to make international phone calls from their devices at fixed line rates, typically saving 50% or more on call charges.

Truphone’s global infrastructure means that these savings are available for calls made from the UK to every destination globally, while never compromising on call quality. Moreover, Truphone Business is entirely invisible to end users who simply dial an international number as usual, without noticing that the call is being connected by Truphone.

AT&T to offer cheaper international texting?

Comments

Word has it that CingAT&T is going to be offering 100 international texts for $9.99/month. While we’re paying the standard $0.20 per overseas SMS, receiving them is free on both Bell and Rogers (vs. $0.15 to receive down south). On that front, Canadians aren’t grinding their teeth, but if AT&T’s new deal catches on, you can count on BBCool moaning plenty more.
