Benefits of Mobile VoIP for Residential and Business
Mobile IP software works on most Internet-enabled devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. This is perfect for both residential and business VoIP users. Businesses can use the IP apps to better connect with telecommuters, and home users can reduce their daily cell phone charges.
Most mobile VoIP apps work on the most popular platforms on the market today, such as Android, iPhone, Blackberry, and Windows Phones. You can make completely free calls if you call a user with the same mobile VoIP app and a WiFi connection. If you take a look at cell phone plan prices and then compare them to what you would pay using a VoIP calling application on Wi-Fi, you can see there is quite a lot of money you can save by forgoing an expensive wireless plan.
The biggest benefits of using mobile VoIP are the low per-minute rates for domestic and international calls and text messages. Calls to other numbers within your VoIP network are free and unlimited. You can save $30 to $70 a month on monthly cell phone bills calls by converting to Mobile VoIP and downgrading your voice plan to a lower minute allowance. However, since these calls use your data bandwidth and not your voice minutes, be mindful of your monthly data plan.
You might lose a call if you leave the range of a WiFi hotspot. Only some mobile VoIP providers provide a handoff between WiFi and 3G while a call is in place.
There are now over 1 billion mobile VoIP users across the globe.
