Phone.com number and more
LIVINGSTON, N.J.– December 20, 2010: Phone.com, an innovative and affordable cloud based phone service solution for small businesses and professionals, today announced the availability of the Phone.com® Mobile Office for BlackBerry application. Phone.com’s Mobile Office for BlackBerry enables Phone.com subscribers to make and receive calls, text messages, and more from their Phone.com number via their BlackBerry phone.
“As a recent Forrester survey showed, 49% of small business owners currently use a BlackBerry device which makes the launch of our Mobile Office for BlackBerry app that much more important,” said Ari Rabban, CEO of Phone.com. “The comprehensive capabilities of this app were only available to executives at large corporations but now we are happy to bring them to businesses of any size.”
In addition to sending and receiving phone calls and text, Phone.com Mobile Office for BlackBerry allow users to access and manage their Phone.com account voicemail, view received faxes, click and connect to their private conference call bridge, review call history, block calls from unwanted or unidentified numbers, send and receive SMS messages, and more.
“As the president of a small web design firm, I am often on the road and away from the office so it’s important to me that my business line is always accessible for inbound and outbound calls,” said Jonathan Jones, President and CEO, Jones Web Design. “The Phone.com Virtual Office for BlackBerry application makes it easier to return missed phone calls, start conference calls and make calls directly from my Blackberry using my business number. We were already seeing improved flexibility of communication and increased efficiency by adding the Phone.com Virtual Office system, but adding the BlackBerry application doubled that!”
Phone.com Mobile Office for BlackBerry can be downloaded free to any Blackberry device, running BlackBerry OS 4.6 or higher, from phone.com/apps.
