“BlackBerry is making a comeback and we believe in the overall new direction, therefore now is the perfect time to re-launch Fongo for BlackBerry,” said Fongo President and CEO Jody Schnarr.

Fongo chief architect Joe Preiditsch said, “BlackBerry is one of the top platforms in Canada meaning Fongo is available on all the major platforms (including iOS and Android). Having the Fongo app on BlackBerry will allow even more Canadians to save on their monthly mobile bills.”
BlackBerry’s Fongo Features: Free Messaging to other Fongo users. Free Premium calling features such as Caller ID and Visual Voicemail. Long distance rates to many worldwide destinations as low as 2 cents/min. Purchase credits directly from within the app. Inexpensive SMS plans purchased in app provide universal texting.

Fongo is the No.1 phone app on BlackBerry World: “Best app available” (5 stars)
You won’t find a better app for free. Great for travel because you will always have your local number for people to call for free (from your local home area) so it’s free to receive call with wifi or other sim cards. Your number follows you even without a sim card. Excellent. Extremely cheap US calls. It’s a must have.
