Vodafone Hutchison has announced the release of an exclusive, new application which allows users of one of their phones to see who is on the Vodafone or 3 network.
Called Who2Call the application is designed to help customers take advantage of free on-net standard national voice calls between Vodafone and 3 customers, available on Vodafone and 3 postpaid Caps from $29 a month and above.
What is not known is whether the application breaches privacy laws in Australia by exposing to others who is on the Vodafone network.
The launch of the Who2Call app coincides with the launch of the Apple iPhone4 said the company. The Who2Call app is free to download – through the Apple iTunes and Android Stores – and is compatible with any Apple iPhone and other compatible handsets, including all Android devices.
Who2Call emulates the look and feel of customers’ existing contacts applications and, once downloaded, automatically synchronises all stored contacts into a new list. Who2Call automatically adds either a Vodafone or 3 logo next to those friends, family and work colleagues who are Vodafone or 3 customers. Customers can dial out directly from the Who2Call app and new contacts are automatically added to the customer’s personal Who2Call application.
“Who2Call is a simple innovation that makes it really easy to see exactly which of your contacts are on the Vodafone and 3 networks,” said Doug Maloney, General Manager Innovation and New Business at Vodafone Hutchison Australia. “It puts the power of free on-net calls to almost 6 million people in the hands of our customers, and is a great example of how the merger between Vodafone and 3 is bringing real benefits to Australian consumers.”
