Free Text and IM Services Now Available in Major Markets Such as India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Russia

VANCOUVER, CANADA - (September 26, 2007) - EQO Communications today announced the launch of its free mobile messaging software worldwide. For the first time, EQO is offering free text and IM services in every country in the world including: India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Russia.

EQO (pronounced "echo") is a free, easy to use application for everyday mobile phones that lets users send free text messages to other EQO users, and chat for free on MSN, AIM, Yahoo!, Google Talk, ICQ and Jabber. EQO users can quickly build a network of friends who also use EQO so that they can text more people for free. The application automatically populates their EQO phonebook with all of their contacts from their mobile phone’s address book. Users can then invite friends to get EQO with a single click.

EQO users can also send international text messages to people who do not use EQO, at a savings of up to 70%. To celebrate this launch, all new users will receive 25 free text messages: to anyone, anywhere. Mobile instant messaging on EQO is always free.

“We developed EQO to make it easier and cheaper for people to chat using their mobile phone,” said EQO Chief Executive Officer Bill Tam. “It's easy to get, and accessible to everyone, so they can text and IM without having to worry about the costs.”
EQO software is available by free download from
