Wireless carrier to ring in Year of the Rabbit with 99-cent ringtones from Khalil Fong, Fiona Sit and Katy Perry

TORONTO, Jan. 27 /CNW/ - Mobilicity today announced it would mark the start of the Lunar New Year and celebrate the Year of the Rabbit by providing its customers with free calling to China, Hong Kong and Singapore next week.

"We want to give everyone an opportunity to experience unlimited Mobilicity calling to family and friends in Hong Kong, China and Singapore for Lunar New Year," said Mobilicity Vice President of Marketing Sara Moore. "The success of our unlimited long-distance add-ons has demonstrated that Canadians are looking for more affordable and convenient ways to call overseas."

The limited-time holiday calling offer is only available to Mobilicity customers from February 2 - 4, 2011. Mobilicity today also introduced special savings on some its most popular Asian and mainstream music ringtones.

Priced at just 99 cents through February 9, 2011, ringtones include:

  • (To look/seek for the Unicorn): (Fiona Sit)
  • (Everyday): (Khalil Fong)
  • (Crescent Moon Bay): FIR
  • Firework (Katy Perry)
  • Grenade (Bruno Mars)

For customers looking to personalize their phones with multicultural content, Mobilicity has a unique, customizable download store with ringtones and wallpapers featuring Asian and mainstream pop stars. The download store also provides direct links to overseas Asian news sources, like Hong Kong's South China Morning Post and Shanghai Daily, as well as local news outlets, such as CTV, The Globe and Mail and Toronto Star.  Mobilicity offers more Asian content than any other Canadian carrier.

Providing more value than the Big Three carriers

Unlike Canada's incumbent carriers, which have become known for costly contracts, credit checks, outrageous extra fees and surprise charges, Mobilicity provides industry-leading value and the latest handsets/smartphones on its state-of-the-art 3.5G network. Its unlimited plans start at just $25/month.

Mobilicity also offers superior value through its global long distance offerings. Its Unlimited Asia Add-On provides unlimited calling to China, Hong Kong, India and Singapore when customers add the $20 feature onto any calling plan.

The carrier also offers Multi-Minute Long-Distance Add-Ons, as well as very competitive pay-per-use long-distance rates to countries, like China (including Hong Kong), Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia and South Korea, starting at just two cents per minute.
