Vonage World Mobile Gives BlackBerry Users Unlimited Int’l Calling

Vonage has released a new plan for BlackBerry that enables users to make unlimited international calls for a set price.  The plan, which is $24.99 a month, is part of the new Vonage World Mobile program.  This new program gives BlackBerry users a low cost option for making international calls without the hassle of using pin codes or calling cards.  This is an enhancement on the Vonage Mobile BlackBerry app that was released back in October.  The difference of course is now there is a set plan for international calling so you don’t have to pay per call.

From the press release:

“This is another example of how we will continue to create opportunities to extend our home-based services and exceptional value onto mobile. As mobile devices (phones, PCs, netbooks) become more powerful, broadband networks become more available and 3G/4G data networks become more open, we envision a future where Vonage delivers calls, readable voicemail, texts, MMS and video calls from any device, using any broadband connection.”

It will be interesting to see just how well this program does.  Remember there is already plenty of competition out there like Google Voice and Skype.  Skype offers a lower monthly plan ($12.95) however it only allows you to call 40 countries.  With Vonage World Mobile you can call up to 60 countries which might work out better for some especially existing Vonage customers.

    If one is already subscribed to Vonage World, it can easily be extended to any cell phone (regular and smart phones) without subscribing to Vonage Mobile or Vonage World Mobile, thus saving $14.99 per month. Cellular minutes are not used if one’s cell phone carrier is AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile (free unlimited calls to and from favorite numbers) or Sprint/Nextel (free incoming calls). Just install a Call Bridge/Call Back switch on the Vonage World line and place unlimited air time and long distance calls to 60 countries and even share with family, friends, associates, etc. Also the use of the Vonage World line is not restricted to USA residents only. Land lines and some cell phones in the 60 countries can also place the same unlimited calls.
