Hans Osnabrugge – No more vacation phone bill shocks!

Hans with RingcredibleEver come home from a trip and be shocked by your cell phone charges? Ever want to text or call from your phone on vacation but didn’t because you were out of your home country? There have been horror stories about thousand dollar phone bills but Hans Osnabrugge is onto something that may change all that.

In this conversation, recorded while he was in the Netherlands, he talks about how most cell phone companies make money, how free phone services like SKYPE pay their bills by using your personal data and how Ringcredible offers a secure, simple wifi solution for phone calls wherever you may be in the world.

Hans Osnabrugge is the CEO of Ringcredible for  iOS, Android and BlackBerry, using WiFi, 3G and 4G.
