EQO Launches Free Mobile Messaging Services Worldwide

    Free Text and IM Services Now Available in Major Markets Such as India,
    Indonesia, the Philippines and Russia

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 26 /CNW/ -- EQO Communications today
announced the launch of its free mobile messaging software worldwide. For the
first time, EQO is offering free text and IM services in every country in the
world including: India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Russia.
    EQO (pronounced "echo") is a free, easy to use application for everyday
mobile phones that lets users send free text messages to other EQO users, and
chat for free on MSN, AIM, Yahoo!, Google Talk, ICQ and Jabber. EQO users can
quickly build a network of friends who also use EQO so that they can text more
people for free. The application automatically populates their EQO phonebook
with all of their contacts from their mobile phone's address book. Users can
then invite friends to get EQO with a single click.
    EQO users can also send international text messages to people who do not
use EQO, at a savings of up to 70%. To celebrate this launch, all new users
will receive 25 free text messages: to anyone, anywhere. Mobile instant
messaging on EQO is always free.
    "We developed EQO to make it easier and cheaper for people to chat using
their mobile phone," said EQO Chief Executive Officer Bill Tam. "It's easy to
get, and accessible to everyone, so they can text and IM without having to
worry about the costs."
    EQO software is available by free download from http://www.eqo.com.
