so would i be able to call to vietnam for free also? I've been looking into this but seems like all the voip services still charge u a monthly fee but if this is on the iphone that means i won't get charged n e thing to call back to vietnam huh? This will be a great release

Any cost? I know you have to pay for things like Skype (some of it), so who would host this service?

Meaning you really could turn an iPod Touch into an iPhone, that would be pretty cool...

12-11-2007, 09:24 AM #35Clarification
Let me clarify some things out. We are talking about the iPhone implementation of the SIP protocol here. Think about SIP as a Jabber for VoIP - it's an open protocol used by a number of providers, which will require you to register an account with them. A lot of them provide a free or ultra-cheap option for local calls, but I never heard about any of those providing ubiquitous free international calls. It's not gonna be like you just call somewhere when you are at Wi-Fi hotspot and it's free (so don't get too excited) - you rather use special app to access you account and make a call from under your account. In most cases it's cheaper than common cell carriers' rates though.
Do not confuse this with Skype. Skype uses a proprietary commercial protocol for VoIP instead of open SIP. You will notbe able to use the solution discussed here with your Skype account. To make this possible, Skype needs to make their own client app for iPhone. Which, I bet, will happen shortly after the release of iPhone/iTouch SDK in February. Skype makes the client app for such device as Nokia Internet Tablet - they are not going to ignore such platform as iPhone, which is far more popular and widespread than the Nokia's device.
