5 Ways to Score an Amazing 2010 World Cup Experience Through Voxox

Posted by Tristan Barnum on Wed, Jun 23, 2010 @ 04:51 AM

    
It’s that time again – when the best and brightest soccer talent on the PLANET duke it out for global bragging rights…. it’s the World Cup! Get ready to wave your nation’s flag and wear your nation’s colors. And while you’re at it, why not show your World Cup pride through Voxox?  There are so many ways to do this, but we’ll just go with my favorites:

1) Update your global status to let everything know your team scored


When your team scores you have about a second to react before the moment is gone. Just imagine yourself trying to post your “WE OWN YOU BRAZIL” on your Facebook, Twitter, AIM, etc.  By the time you’re done, the other team may have scored, and that’s just embarrassing. With Voxox, you can update all your networks with one click. Just go to the status bar, bang out your best heckle and enter. Takes 2 seconds and your friends know who’s boss.

2) Use the Universal Translator to gloat to your friends in their language


Talking smack about other teams is fun, but what about talking international smack?  Not so fun when the other person doesn’t understand what you’re saying. Well, luckily we have just the thing – with the Voxox Universal Translator feature, you just type your...er... feelings… in the Voxox chat window and it gets instantly translated into the language of your international buddy on the other side of the world. You can do this with texts, emails and Tweets too.  I don’t speak any Spanish, but… mi abuela patea mas duro que tus delanteros! (It may not be perfect but it sure gets the point across.)

3) Screen your calls until half-time


If you’re a true fan, you probably don’t want to be interrupted watching the World Cup, except maaaaybe if someone has something really important to say.  With Voxox you can screen all your calls, at least until half-time. You can even listen to the caller leaving a voicemail in real-time, and pick up the call at any point with Voxox’s Eavesdrop™ feature. So, if your buddy calls and starts leaving you a voice message, ragging on your team, you can pick it right up and tell him what’s on your mind.  If you haven’t had a chance to give out your Voxox number to your friends yet, you can just forward your cell to Voxox and use many of these calling features. 

4) Set your country's flag as your Voxox avatar


It will be nice to look at and it’s one of the easiest things you can do to show your team pride. Just Google the image you want, save to your desktop, and then right click on your Voxox default pic and browse for the image file. Or you can even get a little creative, like these guys we found online:

5) Call your international buddies for cheap when your team beats theirs


If you didn’t get enough gloating and smack-talking done with the Universal Translator, it always helps to finish the job with a phone call. Voxox international calling rates are crazy cheap, we’re talking as low as a penny per minute. Did you see that goal? Was that striker off-sides? Can you believe that ref? With such low rates, you can talk about anything and everything and still have plenty of cash left to stock up on refreshments for the next match.


So with that, have an awesome time watching the World Cup in the coming weeks and don’t forget to use Voxox to “express yourself” about it!
