RingFree To Be Just That–Free

RingFreeI noticed an entry on the RingFree blog about how they are going to change their pricing model on Monday. The last sentence at the end got me thinking: “We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised . . . very pleasantly.”

Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to come to the conclusion that it’s going to be cheaper or, more likely, free. A quick email exchange with Marcelo confirms the supposition: RingFree will be advertising supported. I didn’t get into the details with him on how this will work, but there are only a couple of ways they could do it, neither of which are mutually exclusive:

  • In the call as part of the ringback tone
  • In the RingFree web application itself

I, of course, can’t give it a shot since I don’t have an iPhone. Meanwhile, iPhone users have absolutely no excuse to give this a try now that it doesn’t appear they have any plans on charging for the privilege.

Update: Marcelo confirms it.
