BB says:

Meh, Google Voice is still cheaper

Bob says:

I love google voice too, but if you are overseas the incoming call still whacks you for international charges! Unless you only want to text, then go nuts. That is what I did a few months back in Europe, I left our iPhone in airplane mode, and just texted when we had wifi.

Randal L. Schwartz says:

Not if you use "Talkatone". Talkatone logs in to Google as if its a Gtalk call, and Google voice allows Gtalk->POTS and POTS->Gtalk for free. So you can make completely free phone calls to and from the US and Canada on wifi, and burn up only databytes while on 3G. Not only that, the app is free (ad-supported, although you can pay to turn that off).
I'm sure it's some loophole that Google hasn't closed, so get it while it's available and working!
Definitely too good to be true. Will be ruined in 3.. 2.. 1..

I think I will stick with Skype over wifi when I'm overseas!

kingweb says:

How about receiving calls?

USAFRetired says:

It seems you can receive calls. Still wouldn't use the service (unless wifi) overseas because of the network data/wireless charges.

kingweb says:

Where did you see that? I looked at the app in the app store, and not a word about receiving calls.

Bob says:

cheap as in "industry average" calling card rates... why bother with the app at all? in some places overseas it is easier to find a pay phone then wi-fi!

Asdollah Mirza says:

THAN not then ;)
And have you tried to make a phone call INTERNATIONALLY from a payphone? ;)

Bob says:

yes, and that would be why I would be using a calling card or Skype.

USAFRetired says:

In many cases, Skype is still 50% cheaper for landline calls but ATT seems to be cheaper for calls to mobile phones--this for calls from USA-Italy.

Google voice rates are pretty good... I use it a lot to call to south america

Anton Frost says:

Does Sprint have something like this? Are there any VOIP apps for Sprint iPhones? Has anyone used Google Voice in Europe to call the USA?
