MARINA DEL REY, Calif., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of the holidays, from December 19th to December 26th, textPlus—the mobile app that does everything your carrier does at a fraction of the cost—is offering customers free calling in the United States.

Because it's more important now than ever to connect with family and friends, textPlus is giving away 60 million United States calling minutes to iOS and Android users. Using textPlus, all calls to the contiguous United States are free of charge until all 60 million minutes have been given away.

Additionally, during this period, textPlus will be featured in Google Play—which is preinstalled on more than 400 million devices worldwide—as part of their holiday app promotion. This spotlight will position textPlus to stand out from the more than 1 million apps available through Google Play.

"Family and friends want to stay connected during the holidays and we hope our service can help everyone do just that," said Scott Lahman, Founder and CEO of textPlus.  "This is our holiday gift to our users, and a way to thank them for their support. We sincerely hope this gift lets our users better stay in touch with loved ones when they want to most."

textPlus provides users a free phone number, unlimited free texting in the US and Canada, free texting and calling to 60 million other textPlus users, and calling to any number for just pennies.  Because the service is available over WiFi, we offer the opportunity to untether from your carrier and embrace the All WiFi way of life (of course we also work well over 3G/4G). textPlus is designed for smartphones and tablets and is available worldwide for Apple and Android devices.
