Now every-time your device is turned on, World Message launches itself in the background and connects with our network, selecting the best possible access point to the international telephone network.

World Message is free to download. In-app purchases are available for World Credit and phone numbers.

We can charge less for calls because we do not need to have a contract with every mobile network in the world. We use the public internet for short VoiP hops, which is free, and then we use the PSTN which is so competitive that rates are very low.

World Message allows you to use a local number on your phone, even when you have a roaming SIM card installed. This is a significant benefit. You can make high quality calls whenever you have a good quality internet connection – and this works in some places where visited mobile networks do not work well! You can avoid having to carry around two phones.
