With the package, a user can begin making calls to virtually anywhere in the world without incurring roaming charges." A truly state-of-the-art antivirus program designed specifically for all smartphones can cost the consumer US$30 or more every year," states Dennis Chang, CEO of VoIP-Pal.  "For only US$30, our users will receive both substantial airtime minutes and the antivirus program.  Malware is still a growing problem and is just one of many reasons why security protection for your Android should be the very first application to be downloaded on to your smartphone.
