New VoIP app for BlackBerry, iPhone released

By : |October 6, 2009 0

NEW YORK, USA: Vonage, the Internet telephony company, has released a mobile application for BlackBerrys, iPhones and iPod Touches. The new app allows phone users to place cheaper international calls from their mobile phones.

The Vonage app lets users place international calls at rates that are cheaper even than the rates Vonage charges for the same calls on its broadband VoIP service. Using Vonage will let users save a significant amount of money–as much as 50 percent for some countries–over the rates they are used to paying.

The Vonage app will use the Wi-Fi connectivity of the iPhone or Blackberry to route VoIP calls to their destination–avoiding using up the precious minutes users have on their calling plans. In areas where there is no wireless network signal available, the Vonage app connects to Vonage over the cellular network instead.

The calls will tick away minutes from the calling plan, but the international portion of the call is executed between Vonage and the destination so no international long-distance charges are racked up with the mobile service provider.
