Apple lifts VoIP restrictions on 3G as iCall becomes immediately available
While January 27th might be known as the day that Apple announced the iPad, for iPhone users, it might be better known as the day that Apple removed the restrictions that prevented them from making VoIP calls over 3G on their handset. And with these calls on 3G wide open, iCall is the only VoIP app available immediately for 3G use on the iPhone and iPod Touch. iCall is a leading desktop and mobile platform provider and until today, restrictions on developers prevented calls from being made using the iCall app. With Google denied the opportunity to provide its Google Voice on the Apple App Store, iCall is one of the few VoIP providers allowed to offer such service. The changes Apple has made in the Developer Agreement and SDK now enable unrestricted local and long distance calls using the iCall app. Company CEO Arlo Gilbert says, "I applaud Apple's decision to allow iCall to extend itsfunctionality beyond Wi-Fi and onto the 3G networks. This heralds a newera for VoIP applications on mobile platforms, especially for iCall andour free calling model. I hope that now more developers will beginusing our VoIP as a platform to integrate VoIP into their applications." Ok you phone jockeys, time to head to the App Store, download iCall and start dialing away to your heart's content knowing that the internet and not you, is responsible for the bill!
