Rebtel Brings Its Free International Calling App To BlackBerry
Rebtel, the world’s leading independent mobile VoIP company that provides users with local phone numbers in their country of residence to enable to them easily communicate with friends and family across the globe. The idea is to rid consumers of the lengthened International phone numbers, PIN and an access number to dial prior making a call. Rebtel was launched back on May 17, 2006 at Innovate Europe and was named Europe’s top 3 startups.
Rebtel today announced the addition of the BlackBerry app to its armory. This would enable all BlackBerry users with the app installed a chance to make free international calls across more than 50 countries. This is a welcome move, embracing BlackBerry users to the Rebtel family that already provides similar features on the Android platform. There is obviously a rising trend of mobile applications seeing a boost in business value as the app economy is predicted to climb to a whopping $4 Billion by 2012.
Also the operating systems market share are evenly distributed with the iOS leading with 28.6%, RIM with 26.1% and the Android OS with 25.8%. As per the stats available [pictures below], if Rebtel can leverage the Android and RIM platforms it will readily have accessibility to over half of the mobile platform distribution and adding more weight to them introducing the app to multiple OS’.
The Rebtel App for BlackBerry offer the following features:
- Free International calls – Users on BlackBerry and Android phones with the app enabled can readily make international calls without any charged.
- No need to have Wi Fi – the app works fine on your existing carrier network. However on the network the calls made utilize your local minutes.
- Seamless integration – Calls are automatically intercepted and routed using Rebtel instead of your carrier.
What sets Rebtel apart from competitors like Skype is that it is not dependent on having users to be hooked to the Internet via WiFi or having to pay for a monthly subscription plan. The company itself has been making progress year on year with a user base of over 9 million callers with over a billion minutes of call time. Its projected revenue for 2011 is expected to cross $75 Million. Rebtel also plans to introduce the iOS app for the iPhone later on in 2011.
The setup is damn simple.

We live in a global world, where countries, cultures and people are increasingly moving closer to each other. While that means a lot of opportunities, the options for keeping in touch across borders are still limited, and they often come with a catch. There are plenty of modern-day solutions to modern-day needs, but to create communication services that don’t face a couple of bumps along the ride is a challenge.
At first, the new BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) for Android and iPhone was supposed to launch at the start of summer… then it moved to mid-summer… and then it is promised to be here by “the end of summer”. Now it is pinkie-promised for the end of September at the very latest. Or so we hope.
Phones keep getting slimmer and have bigger screens. Computers keep getting smaller and have more functionality. So what do you get when you cross your phone and a computer? That’s right - you get a calling tablet.
Making international calls can be expensive, and calling rates for certain countries just don’t seem to be getting any cheaper through traditional calling plans. Fortunately, VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) apps can modify the way calls are made from your phone and reduce the cost of each call.
Looking for a way to make cheap phone calls form your mobile without running up a hefty bill? Apps for wifi calling provide a great way to save money and make calls from anywhere with a wifi connection - no need for a 3G or 4G network!

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.
Just tried it
It is essentially Google Voice, but with a ca-ca interface. The only difference is the ability to do the "free" calling on Reb. Now by free calls I mean playing fone-tag with your calling party: http://www.rebtel.com/en/Learn/Make-Free-Call s/
Google Voice for overseas rates were mostly better and rarely higher from the random countries I referenced. Google Voice only allows for international sms to canada. Reb touts low cost sms to various countries, but I could not find a rate list online and the app makes you type a number in.
Free voicemail w/ Google voice. Free, custom domestic virtual phone number. (Inbound only, outbound caller id is a random number.) Rebtell has none of these things.
Essentially google voice, wit...
iOS version already available
There is already an iOS version available in the Apple App Store.

Lengthy delays met the launch of the BlackBerry Messenger app (BBM), but it’s now in full swing having had numerous app updates. After falling behind Android, iOS and Windows in the race to be top dog in the smartphone market, here’s what’s what with BBM and how it can be used across other smartphone operating systems.
Having BBM for iPhone or Android could greatly enhance the user experience, giving them the freedom to use their favoured device and still take advantage of one of the slickest messaging systems out there. Unfortunately, the delays in getting to market seem to have been almost fatal as other competitors have raced ahead of the game.
What does BBM for iPhone and Android cost?
No-one was quite certain how BlackBerry would make money on the app. They could have assigned a purchase price, allowed in-app advertising or even premium services within the app. But while there are some business add-ons that are charged, the app is wholly free.
A fake BBM app fooled over 100,000 consumers
A fake “BBM for Android” app showed up on Google Play in early June 2012, and was downloaded by over a hundred thousand users before it was pulled. The app simply showed a screen claiming that it would start to work on June 27th 2012 (the original date that BlackBerry had promised the launch) and of course was never delivered.
The fake app was only successful because BlackBerry fell down on delivering their official app on time. This only went further to harm the reputation of the once great Blackberry brand.
Alternatives to BBM for iPhone and Android
As aforementioned, being first to market is often crucial in the telecommunications world and Blackberry missed a trick here. So many other apps exist with a similar feel. Granted, BBM is an excellent app with some really cool features at high performance but the reality is that it just has not become synonymous with the everyday smartphone user. Business users have embraced it somewhat but the market potential is far greater than that. Competitors like Google Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Skype, PingMe and many more have made it quite the harsh reality for BBM… It’s going to have to be quite spectacular to win over the majority of iPhone and Android users who have been managing without it for years.
Oh well… for the average consumer all this competition is great news. It keeps feature based development soaring, resulting in some absolutely great apps, whilst prices stay at rock bottom.
Long may it continue!
