Vonage, the VOIP provider, has now brought their calling service to Android (and that other OS which shall remain nameless). Their free app, aptly dubbed Vonage Mobile, lets you talk and text worldwide for FREE with anyone else who has the app. And if you are calling someone internationally who doesn’t have the app, you get deep discounts on international long distance. They have also allowed you to add calling credit directly from your Android Market account.
In addition, they are giving you free calling to any phone in the US, Canada or Puerto Rico for a limited time. Check out the app info below.
Talk and Text for FREE, Worldwide.
Vonage Mobile® is a free downloadable app that lets you talk and text worldwide for FREE with anyone else who has the app* (also available on iPhone®).
App-to-App calls are made using high-definition audio which provides dramatically better voice quality than traditional cell phone calls. The app works over Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G data networks worldwide.
In addition, when calling those who don’t have the app, you get ultra low-cost international calling with per-minute rates that are on average 70% less than major mobile carriers and 30% less than Skype™ **. Add calling credit directly from your Android Market™ account.
Use your existing phone number and address book to show who already has the Vonage Mobile app and invite those who don’t. The more people you get to download the app, the more you can call and text for free.
You do NOT need to be a Vonage phone service customer to use the app. However, as an added benefit to all app users, calls to any Vonage number are also free.
Vonage Mobile combines the best of free voice and message services with exceptional high-definition audio, along with incredible value for traditional international calling, all while using your existing mobile phone number and address book, providing a better experience than competitive apps.
PLUS calls to any phone in the United States, Canada or Puerto Rico from anywhere in the world will be free for a limited time.***
