    I just saw that truphone was available in the app store. I haven't tried it yet because I haven't updated to 2.0. But this looks like we have VoIP for the iPhone on Wifi. Good stuff.

    yeah, but it seems to me it works much like Skype which I use all the time. If this works that way, I'll be really happy.:)

    Disclaimer: I do not work for Truphone nor am I in any way affiliated with the company. I'm just really excited about this app.

    well it's very confusing. But anyhoo I rather wait till skype comes out it's only a monthly charge of $2.95 for us and Canada, and 9.95 a month for all international calls to like 20 countries.

    From their site:

    "Calls to other Truphone users are always free."

    Paying $0.06 per minute to a landline if I am on vacation is pretty nice.

    Well not when your international. That is considered to be cheap, than paying roaming charges.

    I wonder if it will display your phone number on caller IDs?

    I know calling from skype it just shows up with a bunch of 0's.

    I used Truphone for a year in my Nokia E65 through their free launch offer. Here's my take on it:

    - exceptional voice quality compared to some other SIP services
    - top notch customer service
    - great, easy to use integration with Nokia devices

    So why have I gone back to Skype on my Mac? Simple... their rates are some of the highest around! Just wasn't worth it. You can read about it in various threads here http://www.mobilevoipforum.org/forumdisplay.php?f=49

    Keep your eyes open for apps from Skype & iCall. But if you want to try Truphone, I really cannot complain at all about their service.

    I'm waiting for iCall for the iPhone. I thought it would be in the app store straight off but seems not!

    Their app has no call charges or call rates, true free calls over wifi!

    How did this app get approved by Apple? It's cutting into AT&T's business.

    Why would Apple care if it cuts into AT&T's business?
