Back in September,  asked me to try out their international calling service, and I became a quick convert. I described it to friends as Skype without the need for a wifi connection — though for the full lowdown you should check out my original review.

While I loved almost everything about Rebtel, I noted that there were two features that were notably absent from the app’s repertoire — video calling and instant messaging. This week, Rebtel made that comment obsolete with the launch of their new messaging service. And we’re celebrating by giving away $50 of Rebtel credit!

But you might have heard there’s something else to celebrate today. No? The bombardment of red, white, and pink media messages have eluded you? Well, breaking news, guys — it’s Valentine’s Day! I’m actually not one of the cynics — I love February 14th. Before I was traveling full time, I used to celebrate by throwing heart-drenched dance parties and sending hand-made valentines to all my family and friends. Now I’m far from home, and sending Valentine’s to my loved ones back home just isn’t feasible.

So I was tickled pink by Rebtel’s latest creation. allows you to record and send your heartbeat — a pretty nifty virtual valentine, no? I loved watching the app’s graphics while I recorded my own, and then sending it off around the world.

Happy Valentine’s Day, ya’ll! I can’t send you all roses, but I will send one of you $50 of Rebtel credit. Think how many times you’ll be able to say “I love you!” with that. Note: This giveaway is open to readers from anywhere in the world!

      It is amazing! However you need to have a phone plan in whatever country you are in… so for me it only works calling my international friends when I’m in the US. It is a little confusing but I think I spelled it out well in my original post!

    I’ve heard of Rebtel, and their heartbeat app seems amazing, but been using Vyke for over two years now and they never fail. Calls are really cheap and a fixed rate for SMS, just 3 pence to text everywhere 🙂 It works over WiFi, 3G or uses your free local minutes. Here’s their website Happy belated Valentine’s Day!
