Rebtel's Free Calling App Available for BlackBerry
Rebtel announced that its free, international calling application is now available to RIM's BlackBerry platform. The application runs in the background and automatically transfers international calls dialed from cellular networks to the internet instead via VoIP. Calls to many countries are free, while others incur minimal charges. The software works with BlackBerry models running OS 5.0 and higher, including the Curve 8520, 8530, 8900, Bold 9000, 9650, 9700, Storm 9550 and Tour 9630. Rebtel already has a version of its application available to Android devices, and plans to offer one to iOS devices later this spring.
