Taking your mobile phone on a foreign trip can be an expensive affair. High roaming rates can drive up the cost of calls upward of $2 per minute. Also, the reality of international travel is that data bandwidth is scarce, whether on Wi-Fi or 3G.
This means that when you call from overseas to the U.S., the mobile calling app should use as little data as possible and still provide great voice quality. The app should be so frugal on bandwidth use that you can freely text your friends, do group chat, and share photos, videos and audio, without having to worry about your data limits or costs. Besides, your friends in your home country would like to reach you easily with a local call, no matter in which country you are roaming at the time. You want “one number reach”, as you travel from country to country, without running up huge phone bills.
iPlum app for iOS and Android allows you to make or receive calls, using very low carrier data bandwidth or free Wi-Fi. The mobile app is engineered for excellent call quality with low data usage – cutting bandwidth requirement by as much as 90%. The app adapts to available data rates and latency of a broad range of Wi-Fi or cellular data channels, by controlling refresh rates and through efficient codec design. Calls are transferred seamlessly between Wi-Fi and wireless data channels as the user moves in and out of coverage zones.
The iPlum app can free you from exorbitant roaming charges. Unlike other calling apps, you get a dedicated phone number of your own and you don’t pay any per call connection fees. No equipment to install, and no monthly taxes and fees. No more dropped calls or poor call quality.
You get a real U.S. phone number and high call quality for $1 per month subscription fee, and a low rate of one cent a minute — that’s more than four hours of international roaming calls to any U.S. number for less than the price of a Starbucks Tall Mocha Frappucino.
iPlum app works seamlessly with any data plan or Wi-Fi on the device. When you call your friends, your iPlum phone number shows up on caller ID, and your friends can instantly recognize your call. You are set to call any phone in the U.S., and your friends can easily reach you at this number with a local call from the U.S., while you travel around the world.
Unlimited secure texting and calling are included when you and your friends have iPlum enabled on your devices, no matter where everyone is located. You also get 20 iPlum credits for calling and texting with non-iPlum users. When you want more calling credits or a phone number subscription, you can get it instantly with simple in app purchase. At a low $1 per month subscription rate, the phone number allows you be reached by anyone, no matter where you are located at the time. You can confidently roam the world free, with an easy way to tie back home.
