There’s cable VOIP, Internet VOIP—and mobile VOIP? Indeed, VOIP has managed to stay despite the threats of traditional communications companies simply because it has learned to evolve and expand its target market.Mobile VOIP, however, is relatively new. Thus, consumers and even mobile business owners are not able to use or make the most out of it. To make sure that you don’t miss out on this remarkable technology, here’s a little discussion about mobile VOIP:

What is it?

Mobile VOIP is not really different from cable or Internet VOIP, as far as principles go. The only difference is the platform used. Since mobility is the keyword, you utilize your own mobile phone and tablet PC. Instead of having your calls transmitted via typical cellular services, they are placed in a voice network via a third-party VOIP mobile provider.


One of the biggest advantages of mobile VOIP is its generally cheap costs. Skype, for example, offers an Unlimited World plan, which lets you call international numbers of over 40 countries for only $13 a month. Truphone, though works only with Nokia handsets, doesn’t charge you for incoming calls and bills outgoing calls on very low per-minute rates. You can also take advantage of other features, such as voicemail redirection and call forwarding or routing.


Yes, one of these is that you cannot take maximize it without any Internet connection. You may also feel limited by your own phone. Old models usually are not capable of connecting to the Internet.
