Updated: January 06, 2011

LONDON, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Truphone has made staying in touch with friends, family and colleagues both at home and abroad even more affordable with the introduction of its lowest calling rates ever.

The global mobile operator has reduced its calling rates to more than 30 destinations worldwide by an average of 60 percent when compared to previous rates for calls made using its Apple iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Nokia and Android smartphone apps.

Truphone has also reduced the cost of its unlimited monthly call package to just $12.95 per month.
