Comwave announces a new ePhone App for BlackBerry 10 Smartphones

TORONTO, June 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Today Comwave launched a new version of ePhone 
for BlackBerry® 10 smartphones, which is part of a series of Comwave Apps 
intended to compete with other Telephony and VoIP apps available 
internationally.

ePhone is different than many VoIP Apps, because the App includes a built-in 
telephone number that users can choose, allowing them to receive incoming 
calls from any telephone around the world. "Having a Toronto or New York phone 
number on your smartphone is a powerful tool, especially when you travel and 
want to get around those costly roaming fees," said Yuval Barzakay, CEO of 
Comwave. 
ePhone enables tremendous cost savings for users and the App is also free. 
ePhone uses a 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi® connection, and with W-Fi, users also do not 
need to worry about expensive data roaming fees while traveling. ePhone 
already includes free calling to the USA and Canada but you can add 
international minutes to your account in $5, $10 or $30 increments to call the 
world at Comwave's guaranteed lowest rates. You can use ePhone anywhere in the 
world, so even if you are in Europe, you can use ePhone to call landlines in 
North America absolutely free. 
ePhone bridges the gap between smartphone users, computers, and landline phone 
users by allowing all of them to communicate for free regardless of whether 
they have ePhone or not.  "While other Apps seem to put up walled gardens 
confining you to the App, ePhone allows you to communicate for free to 
non-ePhone users as well.  Now, someone can be on their land line in New York 
calling an ePhone user across the globe for free," added Mr. Barzakay. 
"BlackBerry is very pleased to have Comwave on BlackBerry 10," said Martyn 
Mallick, VP of Global Alliances and Business Development at BlackBerry. 
"Customers will be able to enjoy ePhone's features and money-saving 
capabilities." 
How does it work? ePhone uses VoIP (Voice Over IP), which allows you to choose 
your own telephone number.  So let's say you choose a Toronto ePhone number 
and you happen to be travelling to Florida, first you would be able to call 
any phone number back home for free, and you would be able to receive calls 
from back home for free as well.  That's because your friends and colleagues 
back home could call Toronto ePhone number which is local to them.  The idea 
is to choose an ePhone number that is local to your home or office, this way 
you can travel anywhere and receive free calls. 
ePhone is available for multiple platforms and devices including for the 
BlackBerry® Playbook™ and BlackBerry 10 smartphones.
