WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. & JERUSALEM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--magicJack VocalTec, Ltd. (Nasdaq:CALL), a leading cloud-based communications company, today announced the launch of magicApp Premium for iOS, enabling consumers to transform any iOS Wi-Fi or 4G enabled device into a mobile phone. For $1.99 per month, magicApp Premium offers a US number, unlimited local and long distance calling to the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, and unlimited text messaging to any US mobile number.
Customers can use magicApp as a standalone personal or business mobile voice service on iPhone, iPad, iPod or as an additional line on any iPhone.
With magicApp, customers can also eliminate expensive wireless carrier bills by connecting an iOS device via Wi-Fi, selecting a US number and enjoying unlimited local and long distance calling to the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands and unlimited texting to any US mobile carrier.
Beginning today, users of magicJack’s low cost, unlimited home and business phone service, including magicJackGO, will receive the new fully featured magicApp Premium at no additional charge.
“Since 2007, magicJack has been a disruptive force in the home and business calling market,” said Gerald Vento, CEO of magicJack VocalTec. “With magicApp Premium for iOS, we take our first step in bringing a similar disruption to mobile allowing consumers to transform any Wi-Fi or 4G-enabled iOS device into a mobile phone with a US number and unlimited talk and text for only $1.99 per month.”
magicApp Premium for iOS enables cost conscious consumers to simply “cut the cord” and go entirely mobile. With magicApp, consumers also have the flexibility to maintain an existing number for home use and start a new dedicated business line or a second personal mobile number.
Unlike many app competitors, magicApp enables calls to any landline or mobile number, not merely other app users.
