CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO, September 18, 2012 - Fongo Inc., Canada's fastest growing mobile telecommunications company, announced today the addition of texting and messaging to its popular free mobile calling service Dell Voice. Dell Voice is available for easy download on the Fongo website, the App StoreSM, Google Play and BlackBerry App WorldTM.
"Every day, tens of thousands of Canadians are using Fongo to call across the country for free," said Dave Bullock, President of Fongo. "While many of our customers have reached out to thank us for free calling, they've also been asking us to help them reduce their messaging costs. They are the reason we're adding free unlimited messaging to our service."
Canadians locked into a carrier contract can save by downloading Dell Voice to their smartphone. In fact, non smartphone users may be able to justify the purchase of a smartphone based on the savings they will realize by eliminating messaging fees, local voice minutes, Canadian long distance minutes, and premium services fees. Dell Voice can also be added to an iPod touch or tablet, turning it into a mobile phone and messaging platform when in WiFi -- an inexpensive option for pre-teens who do most of their texting and calling from home.
The Dell Voice free calling and messaging app is available for iPhone / iPod touch and Android and includes:
Dell Voice has been downloaded by over 200,000 Canadians and has saved Fongo customers millions of expensive carrier voice minutes.
BlackBerry and Windows PC versions of Dell Voice are also available.
