Fongo FacesTM gives Canadians greater choice and control of their mobile phone
WATERLOO, ON, May 7, 2013 /CNW/ - Fongo Inc., Canada's fastest growing mobile telecommunications company, today
announced Fongo Faces, the latest initiative in its quest to give Canadians greater choice
and control of their mobile phone service experience.
The Fongo story started with #SaveYourMoney and the launch of Dell
Voice, which taught Canadians they no longer have to pay for calling,
texting and other mobile phone services. Fongo's acquisition offer for
the mobile wireless assets of WIND Mobile told the #SaveYourFreedom
story, highlighting it's no longer necessary to sign long-term
expensive voice minute contracts because mobile data is all you need.
This latest chapter, #SaveYourself, moves Canadians farther away from
the influence of the big three Canadian wireless carriers by giving
them greater choice and control of their mobile phone identities.
"We've been programmed as Canadians to believe we can choose from only
three telecom companies— the blue team, the red team or the green
team—and these companies control so much of what we see and do on a
daily basis," said Dave Bullock, president of Fongo Inc. "Millions of
Canadians are stuck in expensive contracts with their wireless carriers
but that doesn't mean their carriers should control what they see and
feel each time they use their phones."
With Fongo Faces, people can choose which team they want to play
for—their favourite charity, movement, band, university, or sports
team—or they can build their own Fongo Face in about 10 minutes. Fongo
Faces are easily customized with graphics, social feeds, ads and links
to enable users to choose what they see each time they place a call,
send a text, or check their voicemail.
Companies, teams, charities, brands, artists, schools,
families—literally anyone—can build a Fongo Face to connect with their
community more frequently and in a more meaningful way. For free.
"We're all different people with different identities. Why shouldn't
our phones be extensions of who we are and what we care about?" said
Fongo Faces come with Fongo's portfolio of free mobile phone services,
already used by hundreds of thousands of Canadians. These free services
include texting, local and long distance calling across Canada, visual
voicemail, caller ID, call waiting, and call forwarding. Earlier this
month, Fongo added free conference calling and Fongo Places, a
directory and mapping service powered by Yellow PagesTM, to its menu of services.
Anyone who builds a Fongo Face can share these gifts with their
community. For free.
