Ultra Mobile Unveils New Standard in Wireless Industry with First $49-a-Month Unlimited US Talk, Text, 4G Data Plan to Include 1000 Minutes of Free International Calls -- Mobile Telecom Company Targets Frequent International Callers with No-Contract Monthly Plans That Eliminate Need for Prepaid Calling Cards, Work with Any Unlocked Phone with SIM Card

"We're excited that Ultra Mobile already is being viewed as an industry pioneer and consumer ally," added Glickman, who has been a telecom innovator, serial entrepreneur and leader of multinational telecom companies for more than 20 years. "At a recent trade show, the retailer store owners told us they are eager to sell the first low-cost plan that includes the global call time many customers have been requesting. They are also enthusiastic about our soon-to-be-launched mobile money products that we previewed at the trade show." Glickman explained that one of the company's target customer segments, the 40 million individuals living in the US who were born abroad, are in need of mobile money services that offer accessibility, ease of use, no barriers to entry, less fees, and low balance requirements.

Prior to forming the company, the Ultra Mobile management team created the award-winning IndiaLD™, the leading international long-distance provider to the non-resident Indian community. This telecom experience provided the executives with expertise in serving today's global families.

"Ultra Mobile has an opportunity to capture the frequent international caller market, especially people who have relied on calling cards for the past decade,'' said Cliff Tompkins, founder and CEO of RayzMobile, an independent major agent of mobile telecom services to thousands of retailers. "Unlike apps or calling card services that require callers to dial another number to connect internationally, or utilize the internet or unpredictable WiFi, Ultra Mobile is effortless. Users can easily make and receive ridiculously low-cost direct calls on their mobile phones to virtually anyone around the world just as they would make calls to across the street. Combining this wireless phone service with mobile money is a whole new approach and will undoubtedly appeal to consumers." (continued...)

A company that is not ready. 13 days into going live and voice mail out for a week. Porting problems, MMS faulting and customer service says they are sorry but they are going through a system upgrade. Don't waste your money, find another service. I'm out $80 and changing providers.
