UK based Three says that it is launching an app, Three inTouch, which will allow customers to talk and text using a Wi Fi connection.
The app will be available to all customers from early August and will be offered free to all our contract, SIM and Pay As You Go customers.
With Three inTouch customers can make and receive calls and text messages when they connect to Wi-Fi. It's a free app which uses their existing monthly allowance or prepaid credit for any minutes or texts used. The service is said to be seamless and uses the customers' usual Three phone number.
Three said that the app will be particularly useful in places where there is typically no mobile signal -- although that is then dependent on there being a Wi-Fi hotspot.
