"We've given cell phone users the world," said Howard Jonas, IDT's Founder and Chairman. "Cell phones revolutionized the way business is done. Now we've revolutionized cell phone service. IDT Global Access lets more than 140 million U.S. cell phone users call just about anywhere in the world at IDT's famous low rates."

IDT Global Access provides international access from any cell phone regardless of wireless plan. There's no need to change phones, service providers or service plans. Customers can sign up online at or by calling 1-866-444-9799. The service is also available to retail distributors through IDT's Private Label division.

"Only a fraction of all international long distance calls originating in the U.S. are made from cellular phones. IDT Global Access will change that," said Jim Courter, IDT's CEO. "Convenient and cost effective, IDT Global Access is a cell phone service upgrade that lowers rates. For the business community this means more versatile communications and improved productivity.
