This solution does not require any additional implementation except a one-time simple installation consisting of just 4 easy steps to follow:
- The first and most important step is to make sure your cell phone is compatible with our software. You’ll need to know your phone’s brand and model number. (Blackberry owners will need to know their Blackberry OS version.)
- Once you have selected the brand and phone you will be using, just enter your cell phone number and your E-mail.
- Our system will send you a text message to your cell phone containing a link from which to download the application. Click the link within the text message to begin downloading the application via cellular internet, GPRS or WAP.
- Once the software download is complete, it is ready to be installed. Your phone’s system will prompt you to begin the installation. Once the installation is complete your phone's system will notify you of its completion and you should see the TEL3 logo in your applications.
Note: Most SmartPhones require a "Soft Reset" after installation or after making changes to the preferences. See FAQ# 8 for further details on performing a "Soft Reset".
Once installed, all you have to do is either dial the long distance number directly on your cell phone or select a number from your phone’s directory just like you would for any call. As your cell phone functions, the SmartPlug software constantly operates in the background. Once it recognizes that an international number is being dialed, it redirects the call to our platform. The result: Significantly cheaper international calls, without cumbersome calling codes, access numbers and PINs.
