As previously disclosed on Current Reports on Form 8-K dated November 30, 2009 and December 1, 2009 of Xfone, Inc.

Recent Development

The balance of the principal amount due in connection with the Bonds, in the amount of NIS 7,365,356.72 ($1,948,507.06, calculated with an exchange rate of 3.78) (the “Balance of the Principal”) was paid to the holders of the Bonds on December 14, 2009.

In accordance with the Indenture entered into on December 13, 2007, as amended and restated on October 27, 2008 (the “Indenture”), between the Company and Ziv Haft Trusts Company Ltd., as Trustee, in connection with the Bonds, arrears interest in connection with the Balance of the Principal, at a rate of 0.502% for the period commencing on December 1, 2009 and ending on December 14, 2009
