NEW YORK, NY, June 22, 2005 - Comverse, a unit of Comverse Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CMVT), and the world's leading supplier of software and systems enabling network-based multimedia enhanced communication services, today announced availability of MIMail, an integrated Mobile IM and email solution that migrates the two popular messaging services to the mobile environment with a PC-like experience that enables users to conduct email and IM communications on the move.

Comverse MIMail brings to the mobile environment user communications from global communities such as AOL,® MSN,® Yahoo!® and ICQ® with their familiar IM PC user experience, including chat-like user interface, status indication, multiple dialogs, familiar icons and logos. Users can receive email and IM message notifications even when not logged into the application, providing an always-on user experience. Comverse MIMail is optimized for mobile use with a fully-functional email inbox that lets users receive and send emails and attachments directly to and from their device just like on a PC, with multiple folders, aggregation of external email accounts, personal address book, and user-configurable notifications across messaging applications.

Comverse MIMail includes all of Comverse's mobile IM and email gateway features and provides additional capabilities that optimize the integration between these services. The solution also includes a large set of mobile clients (e.g. J2ME,® BREW,® and Symbian®) and a unified system for billing, management and reporting.

"'Email and IM are massively popular messaging applications on the PC that bring with them a critical mass of highly enthusiastic users eager to continue their active communication lifestyle on the go," said Benny Einhorn, Chief Marketing Officer of Comverse. "Integrating mobile email and IM is a natural evolution in terms of user behavior since these services are to a large extent already integrated on the PC via notifications, ID's and contact lists. The integration makes the solution highly cost-effective in terms of marketing and operations and establishes the basis for extending the solution to additional services that build on existing portal communities."
