Native Address Book Integration
No more contact syncing that mess up your address book or searching for user names you don’t remember. The Rebtel Windows Phone app seamlessly integrates with the native address book, automatically displays current Rebtel rates to all your contacts and groups all the ones with international numbers to give you a clear view of which ones you can call for up to 98% less.
Send low-cost international text messages to friends in more then 170 countries with average cost savings of up to 60% versus your regular operator. If you want your friend to reply to your message for free, tick the Collect Reply box and include a link in your message that lets your friend reply via a mobile web page with you picking up the tab.
Call Whenever with Crystal Clear Quality
Thanks to Rebtel’s local numbers network available in more than 50 countries around the globe, you can save on your international calls anytime, anywhere without having to use a spotty 3G data connection or look for a Wi-Fi hotspot. Instead, use your wireless plan minutes from your operator to call across the globe.
Bernstrom continued, “Our goal is to provide free or low cost international calling to as many people as possible across the world. With Windows Phone holding a current 5.2% market share, which is predicted to reach 19.2% by 2016, this is a natural development for us. With Microsoft’s recent unveiling of Windows Phone 8, we think the platform holds great promise and we’re very excited about this announcement that will allow us to continue keep our users happy no matter what device preference they have.”
