I agree with you.A Voice over Inter Protocol on a phone seems to be redundant. It's making phone calls, using the internet functions of A PHONE. Regardless of well, logic and reality, people are nevertheless going absolutely ape over Line 2, the VoIP app for the iPhone from Talktumi. This is ridiculous – why are people so IDIOTIC? The iPhone already practically needs you to get payday loans to get one, and then this state of the art PHONE (did I stress phone enough, because it matters) that people bought can be used for making phone calls over the INTERNET? Did IQ just fall through the floor when the cell phone was created?
