Parent Guarantee

Parent Guarantee

by Xfone, Inc.
May 31st, 2007
Exhibit 103

This Parent Guarantee, dated as of May 31, 2007, is made by Xfone, Inc. ("Guarantor"), a company incorporated under the laws of Nevada, in favor of Embarq Logistics, Inc. (“Embarq").

I.  GUARANTEE

To induce Embarq to execute the Settlement Agreement and Release of the same date (the "Agreement"), and to accept the Promissory Note of the same date from Xfone USA, Inc., a company incorporated under the laws of Mississippi and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Guarantor (respectively, the "Note", "Xfone USA"), Guarantor irrevocably and unconditionally guarantees to Embarq, its successors, endorsees and assigns, the prompt payment and/or performance when due, subject to any applicable grace period, of the Settlement Amount (as defined in the Agreement) and/or any other obligation of Xfone USA to Embarq pursuant to the Agreement and the Note (collectively, the "Obligations") and, without limitation, Guarantor undertakes with Embarq that whenever Xfone USA fails to pay, perform, or discharge, or is otherwise in default in respect of any of the Obligations, Guarantor shall forthwith on demand by Embarq pay, perform, and discharge the Obligations and make good any such default as if Guarantor instead of Xfone USA was bound by the Obligations ("Guarantee").

II.  EXTENSIONS

Guarantor agrees that Embarq, or any legitimate holder of the Obligations (subject to Section X of this Guarantee) may at any time and from time to time, either before or after maturity thereof, without notice to or further consent of Guarantor, extend the time of payment and/or performance of, exchange, or surrender any collateral for, or renew any of the Obligations and may also make any agreement with Xfone USA or with any other party to or person liable on any of the Obligations, or interested therein, for the extension, renewal, payment, compromise, discharge or release thereof, in whole or in part, or for any modification of the terms thereof, in whole or in part, or of any other agreement between Embarq and Xfone USA or any such other party or person, without impairing or affecting this Guarantee. Guarantor agrees that Embarq may seek payment of any of the Obligations from Guarantor, whether or not Embarq shall have released the value of any collateral security, or shall have proceeded against any other obligor principally or secondarily obligated for any of the Obligations.

III.  EXPENSES

Guarantor agrees to pay on demand all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including the reasonable fees and expenses of Embarq's counsel) incurred in connection with any default, collection, enforcement, or protection of the rights of Embarq hereunder, provided that Guarantor shall not be liable for any expenses of Embarq if no payment under this Guarantee is due.

IV.      SUBROGATION, INDEMNIFICATION, AND REIMBURSEMENT

Guarantor will not exercise any rights it may acquire by subrogation, indemnification and/or reimbursement that it may have against Xfone USA, until all the Obligations to Embarq have been paid in full.  If any amount is paid to Guarantor in violation of the preceding sentence, such amount shall be held in trust for the benefit of Embarq and shall be paid forthwith to Embarq to be credited and applied to the Obligations, whether matured or not.  Subject to the foregoing, upon payment of all the Obligations, Guarantor shall be subrogated to the rights of Embarq against Xfone USA, indemnified or reimbursed, and Embarq agrees to take, at Guarantor's expense, such steps as Guarantor may reasonably request to implement such subrogation, indemnification, or reimbursement.


V.           ABSOLUTE AND CONTINUING GUARANTEE

This Guarantee is absolute, unconditional, and irrevocable and shall remain in full force and effect and be binding upon Guarantor, its successors, and permitted assigns until all of the Obligations have been satisfied in full, notwithstanding any intermediate settlement of account or payment or any change in the constitution or control of, or the appointment of a receiver, administrative receiver, or administrator of any of Xfone USA's assets, insolvency, or any bankruptcy, winding-up, reorganization, amalgamation, reconstruction or analogous matter or proceedings relating to Xfone USA.  Further, this Guarantee shall not be affected by any other circumstance affecting Xfone USA's ability to meet its liabilities, or any other matter or thing whatsoever.  Embarq shall not be obligated to file any claim relating to the Obligations if Xfone USA becomes subject to a bankruptcy, reorganization, or similar proceeding, and the failure of Embarq to so file shall not affect this Guarantee.  If any payment of Xfone USA on account of any Obligation is rescinded or must otherwise be returned as a result of any bankruptcy proceeding, or for any reason whatsoever, Guarantor shall remain liable hereunder for such Obligation as if such payment had not been made, and Guarantor agrees that Guarantor will indemnify Embarq on demand for all reasonable costs and expenses (including, without limitation, fees of counsel) incurred by Embarq in connection with such rescission or restoration to the extent the amount of such payment is guaranteed hereunder.  If any present or future Obligations are guaranteed by persons, partnerships, or corporations in addition to Guarantor, the death, release, discharge in whole or in part, or the bankruptcy, liquidation, or dissolution of one or more of them shall not discharge or affect the liabilities of Guarantor under this Guarantee. This Guarantee is a guarantee of payment and not of collection.

VI.           NO WAIVER, CUMULATIVE RIGHTS

No failure on the part of Embarq to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right, remedy or power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise by Embarq of any right, remedy, or power hereunder preclude any other or future exercise of any right, remedy, or power.  Each and every right, remedy, and power hereby granted to Embarq or allowed it by law or other agreement shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any other, and may be exercised by Embarq from time to time.

VII.           WAIVER OF NOTICE

Guarantor waives presentment to, demand of payment, diligence, filing of claims with any court, proceeding to enforce any provisions of this Guarantee, or to exhaust any security for the performance of Xfone USA's Obligations, notice of any sale of collateral security, notice of dishonor, protest, and all other notices that may otherwise be required by law from anyone liable for any of the Obligations.  Notwithstanding the preceding, Embarq will notify Guarantor of any assignment of this Guaranty in accordance with Section X hereof; provided, however, that failure to give or receive notice of assignment shall not impair any party’s rights or obligations under this Guaranty.
