On Monday, Vonage, the Internet telephony company, is releasing a
mobile application for BlackBerrys, iPhones and iPod Touches. The
application, which is free, will allow users to place low-cost
international calls over Wi-Fi and cellular voice networks.
Wait a minute, I thought VOIP was only allowed over Wi-Fi for iPhone apps?
Update: Looks like it’s not VOIP over the cellular network. From MacRumors:
iPhone users calling international numbers via the Vonage Mobile
application on a cellular network are automatically connected to
Vonage’s network and utilize only domestic airtime minutes on
their carrier while paying Vonage’s international rates for the
calls from a prepaid, automatically refillable account.
So when not on Wi-Fi, you have to place a regular voice call.
