If you are done with acquiring an iPhone 3G or upgrading your first gen iPhone to iPhone 2.0, then you might have some time in your hand to explore a the options you have for your iPhone.
There are already iPhone 3G jailbreaks that allows you to install third party applications. But if you look at the bigger picture, most of the appication deveopers for iPhone, have joined Apple and now on the App Store. Where you can find free or neary free iPhone 2.0 Applications.
Recently I got to know that Vopium, A Dannish company that provide mobile VoIP to cel phone users.
They are Appe certified and they do support iPhone 3G and iPhone. You can find information on how to insta connect and make calls via iPhone here.
Usually once a free software program provided by Vopium is installed on your mobile phone, iPhone or any other supported mobile phone, whenever you make an international call, Vopium re-routes your call as a local call to a Vopium gateway and then via premium global traffic carriers to your destination providing high voice quality. You pay your mobile provider for a local call and Vopium for the international add-on.
Best of all is that you can try their service free with 30 free minutes and I think it is the best way to find out if Vopium is for you!
Vopium also supports When you send a text message (SMS) with Vopium the message is sent as a small data package over your data connection (GPRS, 3G or Wifi) via a Vopium gateway. You pay your operator close to zero for using your data connection and Vopium for the international SMS.
