Truphone Boosts Credit July 1-14, 2008

New customers using Nokia handsets and signing up for the Truphone "VoIP over mobile" service from July 1 to July 14 will get $8 credit in their account, instead of $2. Right now the service is in beta testing, so Truphone only works with Nokia devices.

Truphone allows users of Wi-Fi-enabled mobile phones to make and receive regular telephone calls, and to send and receive SMS text messages, using only a Wi-Fi connection and the Internet. Although still in beta, it has already attracted tens of thousands of users in 149 countries.

This is equivalent to 133 free minutes (2 hours 13 minutes) to a landline in one of the Tru Zone’s countries or 80 free minutes (1hour 20 minutes) to a landline in one of the Outer Zone’s countries.

The credit also is enough to call for 26 free minutes to a mobile in one of the Tru Zone’s countries, or 16 free minutes to a mobile in one of the Outer Zone’s countries.
