    Default Vonage Mobile For Facebook


    Vonage is realeasing its app today that will allow Facebook friends to call each other for FREE! Yes you read this right you will be able to call for free.

    The app lets users call Facebook friends voice over internet protocol providing both parties have the app. The cool thing is iPad users will eventually be able to make calls as well (incoming and outgoing) I can't wait to get it a try!

    The app is a free app and free to use and works on Wifi, 3G and 4G connections. Once the app is released later versions of it are expected to include premium functions and cater for the iPad and well as encompassing instant messaging, SMS and of course ability to make calls to mobile numbers directly from the app.

    Note: Both parties have to have a Facebook account to use this app.

    I would like to check this out, but unfortunately only one of my friends has an iPhone and he wouldn't care about this.

    Did you watch the video? You will download the app then log onto your facebook account and then all of your facebook friends will be there. You will then be able to message them if they don't have the app or call them for free.

    It's crazyyyy. "free calling to ur fb friends?".These "free calling apps" are becoming more and more popular. What to do, buy an iMac or iPhone4? Decisions, decisions and more decisions

    It works on 4G connections... that's impressive, as the iPhone doesn't...! I think you mean 4G iPhones.

    The app isn't just for the iPhone and the article includes Android phones, of which the Evo 4G is one. There's no such thing as a 4G iPhone.

    Equally impressive, as 4G iPhones do not exist.

    The 4G reference is correct. The app is not only available for iPhones, it is also available for Android.

    Do all of your Facebook friends have AT&T? Do they all have iPhones (there is an Android app, too)?
