Truphone Add InTones and More

MobileCrunch picks up the news about client Truphone adding a range of ringtones that their users hear when originating calls.

But the big news is Truphone Out+ that really makes the service fly in countries they don't yet offer DIDs. In a nutshell from the Truphone press office:

Truphone Out+ means that a customer's existing phone number is now displayed as their 'calling line identification' (CLI) when they make a Truphone call.

Carrier pre-select is achieved transparently: when a Truphone call is made the Truphone's servers recognise if the 'ordinary' telephone number being called is linked to a Truphone account. If the destination user is online, a free Truphone-to-Truphone call is setup.

This means that users of Truphone won't miss calls when they leave a WiFi environment just like before, but that the number called by a Truphone user to reach another Truphone user in the new markets can be an existing mobile number. Neat!
