Vonage on iPhone

vPhone2

Vonage has promised to release an official iPhone app to compete with other providers such as Skype, and it is currently working its way through Apple’s well documented approval process. Unfortunately, this app would most likely come with an initial cost and/or subscription fee, though a way has been figured out to retrieve Vonage’s SIP authentication information, which would allow use of the Vonage network over other iPhone SIP Clients such as Fring. This solution does still contain the Wi-Fi only clause, but we have ways of making you talk, iPhone. This could also possibly be used on other platforms with SIP clients such as Android or WinMo.

    I would _really_ like to see this on Android. being an american living in germany, i use vonage on a daily basis to talk to family. Being able to be away from my computer and able to make/receive calls would be a wonderful thing.

    I would check out http://sipdroid.org/ for an Android SIP client. Reportedly, users have had trouble calling out internationally from this hack (e.g. US to France), though if you are in Germany and calling the US, that may be a different story. If you try this and it works, send us a message, we would love to hear about it.

    My experience with using voip over 3g is that you can hear the other person fine but when you talk it breaks up a lot. VOIP has never worked for me over EDGE or GSM.

    I have been using vonage for quite a while and have had nothing but good things to say about it. Apple on the other hand I hate with a passion. Since they discontinued the Apple II line I swore I would never buy anything apple again, and I haven’t, 20+ years later…

    However, if they did this properly, I would almost think about it lol

    I’m sure you can see how you have affected Apple’s bottom line over the past 20 years.
