Vonage has just released a new application for your iPhone which allows you to make cheap international calls over 3G or Wi-Fi from your device. Currently early adopters are getting 15 minutes for free if they choose to download the free application, but even if you had to pay for the service, it’s still quite cheap. Just to give you an idea, you can call anybody in a list of 100 countries for 15 minutes and spend only $1.99 total. If your country is not in that first list, another 90 countries have prices of $2.99 to $9.99 for those 15 minutes.
Here’s a full list of features:
Works on Wi-Fi® worldwide
Also for use on high quality 3G networks in the U.S. and Canada
Special bonus! For a limited time, unused minutes can be used for additional calls
No need to be a Vonage home customer
Pay per call and talk for up to 15 minutes to 100 countries for $1.99 or less (excluding applicable taxes)
For an additional 90+ countries, talk up to 15-minutes for $2.99 to $9.99 (excluding applicable taxes)
Bill directly to your iTunes account
Yeah, that last bullet point doesn’t make any of us smile. For some it is convenient to have your iTunes account billed, but I know some of us would prefer a different billing service. You guessed it, Apple gets a 30% cut over this, so cheap could’ve been cheaper, but still, the prices aren’t bad at all. Hit iTunes for your free download.
