Trumpet Mobile and RadioShack Corporation today announced the nationwide availability of Trumpet Mobile's prepaid wireless services at more than 4,300 RadioShack neighborhood locations.

Trumpet Mobile offers an interesting value added service with mobile money transfer. Subscribers can make Western Union money transfers within the U.S. and to Latin America and the Caribbean from their mobile phones.
In 2007 Trumpet Mobile introduced prepaid mobile money transfers in the U.S. in a pilot with global money-transfer company Western Union. With the Trumpet CashCard the service gives mobile subscribers the ability to make secure money transfers. This feature is particularly attractive for RadioShack customers who do not have a bank account and are not affiliated with a traditional financial institution yet have financial obligations.

Trumpet Mobile leverages Affinity Mobile's MADE platform to enable secure mobile financial services capabilities. This includes debit card (PIN) purchases, ATM withdrawals and reloading Trumpet Mobile airtime using money on the Trumpet CashCard. The Trumpet CashCard is issued by The Bancorp Bank, Member FDIC.

Trumpet Mobile features also the first prepaid family plan, a competitive low prepaid domestic rate plan of 10 cents per minute.

Trumpet Mobile handsets starting at $29.99, or $19.99 with our introductory rebate.
