TORONTO, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Comwave launched a new version of ePhone for iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad) which is part of a string of Comwave Apps intended to take a bite of Skype's market share.  ePhone is different though, because the App includes a built-in telephone number that users can choose, allowing them to receive incoming calls from any telephone around the world. "Having a Toronto or New York phone number on your Smartphone is a powerful tool, especially when you travel and want to get around those costly roaming fees," said Yuval Barzakay, President.  ePhone also comes with tremendous cost savings for users because the App is absolutely FREE!  ePhone uses your 3G, 4G or WIFI connection so there is no need to worry about expensive roaming fees while traveling.  ePhone already includes free calling to the USA and Canada but you can add international minutes to your account in $5, $10 or $30 increments to call the world at the lowest rates, always guaranteed lower than Skype.  You can use ePhone anywhere in the world, so even if you are in Europe, you can use ePhone to call landlines in North America absolutely free. 


ePhone bridges the gap between Smartphone users, computers, and landline phone users by allowing all of them to communicate for free regardless of whether they have ePhone or not.  "While other Apps seem to put up walled gardens confining you to the App, ePhone allows you to communicate for free to non-ePhone users as well.  Now, someone can be on their land line in New York calling an ePhone user across the globe for free," added Mr. Barzakay.

How does it work?
ePhone uses VoIP (Voice Over IP) which allows you to choose your own telephone number.  So let's say you choose a Toronto ePhone number and you happen to be travelling to Florida, first you would be able to call any phone number back home for free, and you would be able to receive calls from back home for free as well.  That's because your friends and colleagues back home could call Toronto ePhone number which is local to them.  The idea is to choose an ePhone number that is local to your home or office, this way you can travel anywhere and receive free calls.

ePhone is available for iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad), Android, Mac, PC and Blackberry Playbook.
