Line2 costs just $9.95/month for unlimited US/Canada calling and texting. Unlike texting-only applications for the iPhone, Line2 combines VoIP calling capabilities and carrier-grade texting in one app, so that customers can use one number for both types of communication. There is no other calling app available on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch that offers this.
Peter Sisson, Founder and CEO of Toktumi, said, “We knew that the addition of SMS would be popular with consumers, but we didn’t expect them to adopt it as quickly as they did. It really shows that Line2 users are enjoying the functionality of our SMS and understand that they can save money by using it!”
Line2 customers get unlimited calling and unlimited SMS texting for half the $20 price that AT&T charges for unlimited texting alone. When you add in the savings achieved by dropping to the lowest AT&T calling plan and using Line2 over Wi-Fi for voice calls, customers can reduce their cell phone bill by as much as $50 per month.
Version 3.0 is an even bigger breakthrough for iPod Touch and iPad users. Line2 turns either device into a Wi-Fi mobile phone with all the features of a traditional cell phone for just $9.95/month. People with regular access to Wi-Fi networks now have a viable alternative to a cell phone for a fraction of the cost. Customers won’t miss calls because they can be forwarded to another phone or sent to voicemail if the device isn’t connected to Wi-Fi.
“For the first time, Apple’s new iPods offer built-in microphones,” says Sisson. “Using Line2 on a new iPod touch is just like using an iPhone. No other app brings phone-number based voice calling, carrier-grade texting, and advanced features like call waiting and conferencing to iPods and iPads. Not Skype, not Google Voice, not Fring, not Truphone, not Vonage. This is absolutely an industry first.”
