In order to facilitate VoIP on-the-go, numerous VoIP providers now offer mobile VoIP apps for smartphones. These mobile apps allow users to send and receive calls with their VoIP accounts on their iPhones, Androids, and BlackBerries.
One major benefit of downloading a VoIP provider’s mobile VoIP app is that users connect to their VoIP plans for free calling instead of their wireless plans for inbound and outbound calls, which as a result does not eat up their cell phone minutes.
