Vonage delivers new Time to Call app for iOS

Internet phone company Vonage has a new iOS releases app called Time-to-Call allows you to make calls over the Internet from your iPhone or iPod touch. It works with both WiFi and 3G, but 3G function is currently exclusive to the U.S. and Canada.

Time to Call is free with your first 15 minutes of talk time and 190 different countries, but that promotion is a limited time offer. After the trial period, the price is for a 15-minute international call to a flat rate of 1.99 or less, by 100 countries.

The prices are higher for the 90 other countries can call Time to reach, with prices of $ 2.99 to $ 9.99. You can discover more country-specific prices by Vonage, the new Web tool.


Overall, the prices seem to be a little higher than Skype's rates, which start at $ 0.02 per minute for domestic and international calls.

But a particularly handy feature of time-to-Call is that it bills directly through iTunes, rather than his own client or a third party site such as PayPal. Also for a limited time unused minutes can be used for further discussions (also known as a rollover.)
