Vopium Delivers On Promise Again, With Industry-First BlackBerry Wi-Fi Calling App

The history of technology is full of great people, great events, and most of all, great innovation. But when analyzing at depth, what becomes clear is the great leaps in evolution. It has shaped the world as we see and experience it, and today, Vopium, have managed to move the markets with the first real BlackBerry Wi-Fi calling app; free from the limitations and carrier-imposed requirements blocking consumers from taking full advantage of the advantages that VoIP and Wi-Fi brings together!

Our New Year’s Gift to the World

Vopium is the first VoIP service provider to offer a Wi-Fi calling app through BlackBerry App World. One of the major milestones of our industry-moving app is that, unlike other Wi-Fi apps that require users to connect with a local call, it is good to go on a standalone basis. Most of all, the Vopium app offers least-cost routing to both mobile and landline numbers whenever you’re connected to Wi-Fi. Keeping in line with our cost-effectiveness, consumers will have access to free international and domestic Wi-Fi calls, as well as international calls over GSM and CDMA for as little as less than 1 cent per minute!

Of Numbers’n’Networks

And here is the icing to go on top of the cake. Because the calls are routed through Vopium’s network, U.S. BlackBerry owners can make Wi-Fi calls with Vopium to mobile or landline numbers globally without their carrier’s international charges. Our development team has worked round-the-clock to ensure that battery consumption is minimal, assuring that battery time will go on for a day, freeing you from office desk phones and home phones. The end result is, Vopium-to-Vopium, across the many platforms, from iPhone to Android and Symbian to Windows, IM and Wi-Fi are Totalmente GRATIS! … uhh … completely FREE :-)

Vopium CEO Tanveer Sharif snapshots it very efficiently, “Unlike other Wi-Fi calling apps that rely on bridging and other limited architectures, the Vopium BlackBerry app frees users to make calls in more places and on their terms. No other BlackBerry Wi-Fi calling app can match Vopium’s combination of savings, convenience, battery life, wireline interoperability and mobile operator independence. This app democratizes Wi-Fi calling for BlackBerry users, with no caveats and gotchas.”

What are you waiting for then? Hop on and Wi-Fi your way to communication heaven!

TOTALLY AWESOME!

“Totally Awesome! This is an early Christmas gift that is good for 5 years!!! What else can u ask for? This is really such a good way to get in touch with my friends & family all around the world. More power!!!” That was the reaction of Sandy Grazielle of Perth, Australia after being told she was one of five grand prize winners of the Vopium Birthday Blowout.

Sandy is joined by Edmond Wong of San Jose, USA; Michael Khan from London; Valéria de Oliveira Brito from Brazil and Jeremy Hai from Singapore: Five winners from five continents that will each receive 5 YEARS OF FREE CALLS from Vopium.

“Now that I’ve won the prize, I’ll be calling many more family members and longtime friends – at least for the first few months, until I run out of things to say. lol This is really a great surprise, I’m very happy!” said North American winner, Edmond Wong.

Vopium decided to give out five years of free calls as a grand prize because it is the company’s fifth birthday. To celebrate, Vopium created the Birthday Blowout.

“We are delighted to share our milestone celebration with customers who have helped us grow to serve more than a million people in 52 countries,” said Vopium founder Tanveer Sharif. “Our birthday gifts demonstrate our sincere thanks and commitment to continue providing affordable, convenient international calling.”

The five winners all have in common that they regularly make calls to family and friends in other countries with Vopium. Winning the grand prize will make staying in touch that much easier and cheaper.

When asked if he might be calling any long lost friends, UK winner Michael Khan said, “Yes I will, knowing it’s FREE. I’ll  be able to talk for hours, cool. Before I was just e-mailing when we had the chance, now just a phone call away and its absolutely FREE!”

South American winner, Valéria de Oliveira Brito from Brazil talking about how the win would change her life said, “Winning this amazing prize will make possible to keep in touch with my guy (in Canada) for longer hours. What else can I ask for? :)”

Vopium will be following up with the winners over the next few weeks to see how the free calls are working out. We also hope to get some pictures of the very happy winners too.

Win Amazing Prizes During Vopium’s Birthday Blowout

It’s hard to imagine that it has only been 5 years but time flies.  Vopium has made it to the ripe old age of five years old and starting on October 10, our birthday party begins!
In five short years, Vopium has grown from being a solution, the company’s founders developed to help their families call home, to now, a solution that helps more than 1,000,000 users around the world phone home.

Not much has changed. We still connect families around the world but now, we also connect their friends, professionals, and even whole companies.

The guys who started Vopium were ex-pats living in Denmark. They used to watch their parents buy phone cards, scratch off the numbers, watch them put on their glasses so they could read the numbers and then, worse yet, try to dial the numbers and wait to connect so they could again, dial the family’s home number back in the old country. Being respectful loving children and the geeks they were, they decided to invent a better way for their parents to connect, Vopium!

We’ve done a lot over the years to improve the app but we still work hard every day trying to make it even better. There are now nearly 100 Vopium employees spread out across the globe dedicated to improving our service to you.

Not that we have made it this far and grown so old and wise… it’s time to party!!!

VOPIUM BIRTHDAY BLOWOUT!!!

From October 10 onwards to the rest of the month, Vopium will be celebrating our 5-Year Birthday. To celebrate, we’ll be giving away a giant grand prize to 5 lucky winners at the end of the month. We’ll also be giving away lots of smaller prizes each week in October just for fun. Right now, we are keeping the grand prize top secret but we will let you know on October 10 what it is.

To join the Birthday Blowout and have a chance to win the grand prize you need to be a registered Vopium user. On October 10, we’ll launch the Birthday Blowout where you can enter to win the giveaway. If you are not a Vopium user, you can register with Vopium and then enter the contest – it’s free.

In our five short years, Vopium has never given away such an amazing prize. We are very excited!

The program is part of the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program.

Sharif is one of 31 “high-growth, high-potential entrepreneurs” chosen from around the world to take part in the program.   According to the state department’s program, U.S. embassies selected high-growth, high-potential entrepreneurs who are committed to growing their businesses and creating new employment opportunities in their communities. Selected delegates demonstrate high levels of interest in creativity and innovation. They are forward thinking, open to new ideas, and keenly interested in establishing and expanding business relationships with colleagues and peers in the U.S.

“I am extremely honored to be participating in the New Beginnings program. It is a terrific opportunity to learn and grow as a person, as well as gain invaluable business insight and practical strategies to share with my company, Vopium,” says Tanveer Sharif, Vopium founder.

TMCnet conversation with Vopium CEO, Tanveer Sharif

TMCnet discusses the latest mobile VoIP industry trends and developments, as well as Vopium’s (News – Alert) place in the market with Vopium CEO, Tanveer Sharif.

TMC: What top trends do you see happening in your industry and what is driving these trends?

TS: I believe that we are seeing and will continue to see the ongoing migration away from fixed-lines to mobiles. A trend being driven obviously by the fall in the cost of a mobile call, but additionally, by the many more types of communications now being performed with mobiles and mobile apps, in the sense that people are chatting or they are on Twitter or IM. Mobile communication has become more than just voice. It has come to mean, IM, chat, Wi-Fi, twits and much more.

The mobile has become our communications hub; we have shifted away from fixed lines, whether it is our home telephone or even our PC, to becoming truly mobile, much of it made possible by rich voice solutions.
TMC: What new products, services, or enhancements to your existing solutions have you developed in response to these issues, and how will they help improve your performance?

TS: While Vopium always seeks to add more projects to our pipeline that will improve the user and calling experience, we nevertheless, continually strive to enhance the services that we already deliver.
We are always looking to improve sound quality and usability. To this end, the latest versions of our apps for the respective mobile platforms: iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Symbian (News – Alert) Nokia and Java, have all made significant strides. The sound quality has been vastly improved due to low bandwidth codecs while the usability of the apps, from registering to choosing how you would like to connect your call based on call cost preview, have all greatly enhanced their functionality.

TMC: Where does your company fit in the marketplace? What are your core differentiators?

TS: I believe we produce a product that is easier to use and simpler to understand than the others. Basically, anyone that needs to make an international call and would like to do it from the freedom of their mobile phone, meaning while they’re in the car or at the ballgame, benefits from Vopium. There’s not much more than that.

We have eliminated the hurdles that still exist with the other mobile VoIP providers. With Vopium, you do not need to dial a special access number; change your service provider; enter some 15-digit pin code or even call from a Wi-Fi connection – although you can of course, call from Wi-Fi with Vopium – but the choice is yours. In other words, you do not need a smartphone with Vopium, but you certainly can. If you are still using an old school Nokia (News  – Alert), it doesn’t matter, you can still save up to 94 percent on your international calls, dialing direct from your mobile and your contacts, with Vopium.

Vopium is unique in that you do not need to get a special username or new identity. You dial, IM, SMS from your mobile, your telephone number: that is your identity. To make a call, just enter the number or tap the contact, if it is international, you can choose to use Vopium. If you are Wi-Fi or 3G enabled, you can choose to use Vopium, even for domestic calls. If it is Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi, and you are both on Vopium, you can call free.

TMC: What sets Vopium apart from other VoIP service providers?

TS: I believe what truly sets Vopium apart, aside from the app’s ease of use and simplicity that we just highlighted, is that we are actually not trying to set ourselves apart from the Telco mainstream. We are not seeking to disrupt anyone’s business – we are actually looking to benefit them.

Vopium actively partners with companies by delivering a white label version of our mobile communications platform: enabling businesses, from operators to MVNOs, to tap into the exploding market and demand for rich voice services. With our turnkey platform, companies can deliver a full suite of mobile and fixed line international calling, domestic Wi-Fi calling, IM, global SMS packages and much more, featuring  great sound quality and at the absolute lowest prices: all under their brand and their network, and importantly, for a minimal investment

Presently, we are putting the final touches on two global white label partnerships and are in talks with others.

So again, if you asked me what sets Vopium apart, I would say that it is the goal of not being apart but rather, a part of the solution. We help companies and people like you and me, take advantage of rich voice services in a cost effective, easy-to-use solution.

Vopium enables Sonomio customers to call global at better-than-Skype prices

Danes can now call around the world at the lowest prices – directly from their mobile with Vopium Sonomio partnership

Copenhagen, August 30, 2011; Vopium, a leading innovator in mobile global communications, has partnered with Sonomio, a Danish mobile service provider, to provide international calling directly from your mobile phone that not only beats Skype in price, but simplicity too – no Wi-Fi connection needed.

As part of a reseller partnership between the two companies, Sonomio customers can now download from the Sonomio website Vopium’s free mobile VoIP calling app as well as take advantage of Vopium international call plans and pay as you go call credits. The two companies will split revenue as per the reseller agreement.

Vopium mobile to mobile international call prices are significantly lower than Skype to a majority of countries including favorite Danish calling corridors like Germany, Norway, UK, Turkey and Pakistan with a slight difference in others like the USA.

Importantly, with the Vopium Sonomio solution, mobile users do not need a Wi-Fi connection to place the call as with Skype or other mobile VoIP providers. They can however if they choose, take advantage of a Wi-Fi connection with the solution and in fact, call fellow Vopium Sonomio users free if both parties are on Wi-Fi.

At present, Sonomio provides primarily domestic calling services to its Danish subscribers. Teaming up with Vopium will now enable Sonomio to offer global calling to its customers at rates that are not only lower than Skype, but a majority of calling cards and Danish telcos as well.

“Sonomio is very excited to be teaming up with Vopium. The partnership enables Sonomio customers to call around the world from their mobiles at the lowest prices with no hidden costs. Vopium’s easy to use, low cost global calling solutions complement our goal at Sonomio to deliver cost effective mobile services that are straightforward and simple to understand,” says Annette Buus, administrative director of Sonomio.

Both Sonomio and Vopium offer subscription-based and pre paid call plans, so customers always know beforehand how big, or small in this case, their phone bills are. Likewise, because Sonomio customers pay a fixed price based on the hours they choose to use per month, when they do make a global call with Vopium, the time spent on the international call is counted as part of their Sonomio subscription. In this way, their present subscription now covers both the minutes they use locally as well as on international calls, so they end up only paying in essence, Vopium international rates for the global call.

“Our partnership with Sonomio gives Vopium a terrific channel to deliver our low cost calling services to more people. Sonomio’s dedication to providing superior service at the best prices matches our vision and demonstrates the value Vopium’s mobile VoIP calling solution brings to mobile service providers and their customers,” says Tanveer Sharif, CEO at Vopium.

Vopium puts a friendly face on mobile VoIP

Mark Bridge writes:

Voice over IP – the ability to make phone calls over the internet – is a topic we covered in our first-ever podcast five years ago. At times it promised to change the way we used mobile phones… so what’s been happening?

I’ve been talking to Tanveer Sharif, CEO and co-founder of international call service Vopium, to learn more.

I started by asking Tanveer why Voice over IP and mobile VoIP hadn’t disrupted our usage of fixed line and mobile networks.
