Truphone launches low-cost option for BlackBerry phones

Truphone launches low-cost option for BlackBerry phones
Need to call loved ones overseas, but the thought of the high costs sends chills up your spine? Truphone has you covered. Launched today, Truphone Anywhere for BlackBerry smartphones allows for inexpensive calls internationally.

When one dials an international extension, Truphone detects the number and offers the option of connecting via its program. Once the user chooses to do so, Truphone dials into a local server, and from there, it calls the international number and merges it with the local call, thus using your local minutes.  Of course, you do have to pay Truphone per minute as well, but it is significantly cheaper than a carrier's international calling prices.

The software is available for download at Truphone's website, or at Handango's online store.

nice program but CDMA Nokia's have had this for a long time now, it's called the calling card feature, where u just edit a calling card info in the phone n make calls through that. and looking at the rates you're better off using a calling card...
