                         Truphone Slashes Mobile App Calling Rates

                   Cuts cost of international calls by an average of 60 per cent


London, 1st September 2010 – Truphone has made staying in touch with friends, family
and colleagues, both at home and abroad, even more affordable with the introduction of its
lowest calling rates ever.

The global mobile operator has reduced its calling rates to more than 30 destinations
worldwide by an average of 60 per cent, when compared to previous rates for calls made
using its Apple iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Nokia and Android smartphone apps.

Truphone has also reduced the cost of its unlimited monthly call package to just £7.99 per
month.

Truphone’s new rates are now as low as 1.3p¹ per minute, meaning even calls to some of
the most popular destinations worldwide, such as the United States, France and China (see
Notes to Editors for full TruStandard rates), can cost as little as 81p per hour. Calls made
between Truphone customers over Wi-Fi or *3G remain free.

“Truphone wants to take the pain out of keeping in touch with friends and family, whether at
home or away,” said Truphone CEO Geraldine Wilson. “Our wide range of applications,
calling bundles, new calling rates and lower monthly plans make it easy and cost-effective
for people to talk to their heart’s content.”

Truphone offers people with an international lifestyle a portfolio of services that dramatically
simplify mobile communications, including its full GSM, Truphone Local Anywhere service
and award winning mobile VoIP apps for Nokia, Android, Blackberry and iPhone, iPod Touch
and iPad devices.

Notes to Editors
