tipped me off to a new summer promotion by Truphone
which now gives you 4X the inititial credit in your new account. Andy told me, "With the summer holiday season upon us, Truphone is giving away more credit to new users - meaning more free minutes and free SMS messages. New customers signing up for Truphone from Tuesday, July 1 to Monday, July 14 will get $8 credit in their account (instead of $2). This is a great gift just in time for the 4th of July holiday weekend just days away. (You did buy your fireworks, right?
) Now you can make a cheap call to family or friends. Actually, technically it's free since the first $8 are on truphone's dime. Fireworks at Disney World's Epcot
Here's a sample truphone screenshot
This is equivalent to:

• or 26 free minutes to a mobile in one of the Tru Zone's countries
