In this post we will mention a couple of other providers of free iPhone call services and also share with you another - completely different way - to get free calls from our iPhone.
1) Perhaps the most well known is Skype. Free calls or messaging anyone else also on Skype. And given how widely Skype is used, this means a lot of free calls. Skype is perhaps the most popular voip service with an App with 55% of 18K iTunes raters giving it a 4 star rating (and it getting an average 3.5 star rating, overall)
2) Fring - also provides free phone calls, video call, live chat etc. The interesting thing about this app is that whilst a massive 19K people have rated the app (with an average 3 star rating), it does seem that users either love it or hate it! On the one hand, 35% gave it a 4+ star rating, on the other hand - 30% gave it a one star rating!
There are other apps - but few iPhone users have taken any interest in the others - or, if they have, they have given the app a decisive raspberry! After all, the important question is: -
Who can we call for free?
And the answer is - anyone else who has the same free software on their mobile! So the front runners are going to be those services that already have been widely adopted!
Finally, here is a trick for getting free calls to any business within and between the US and Canada, using any of these voip services even if they are not a voip customer:
1) Download the Google411 app (it costs $0.99 but its worth it).
2) Using Google 411 you can make free calls to any business listing in US and Canada. To use this service all you need is a voip application installed in your iPhone and you can call 18004664411 from your iPhone and follow the voice command to make free calls from your iPhone.
You can check out more about the Google 411 service at the Goog 411 site.
By the way, the app is not produced by Google.
