(OTCPK: ICOA) today is pleased to announce that it has entered into a National Distribution Agreement with iPhoneTrip.com to offer ICOA's Wi-Fi end users and other customers rentals of SIM Cards and iPhones for both local and overseas travel at attractive pricing over competitors.
As international travel increases worldwide, many travelers are looking to experience the comfort and reliability of traveling with their own smartphones and tablet computers.

The savings and peace of mind that comes with having 3G access globally is one any modern-day traveler is happy to embrace.
ICOA Inc. is excited about the opportunity of bringing added value to its Wi-Fi customers. Partnering with iPhoneTrip.com is set to bring additional benefits, convenience and savings to customers, especially ones who require large amounts of data traffic both abroad and domestically.
