iCall iPhone app for making FREE phone calls via internet connection!

How can this be free?

iCall uses Voice Over IP (VoIP) technology which utilizes your existing Internet connection (cable, DSL, wireless, or dial-up) and your PC to plug you directly in to the regular telephone network. Stick it to the man – you already pay for your Internet connection, and the Internet is changing everything!

It costs us almost nothing when you make long distance phone calls and we pass that savings on to you by giving you free, or extremely low cost, calls to the US, Canada, and the rest of the world.

What is iCall?

iCall is a computer program that runs on your Microsoft Windows® computer or mobile device such as an Apple iPhone®.

 

iCall looks and feels just like a regular phone, but instead of using a phone line, it uses your Internet connection. With iCall you can call any mobile or landline telephone and receive telephone calls from any mobile or landline telephone.

iCall is a free download for all supported devices.

How does iCall work?

iCall uses voice over IP (VoIP) technology which uses your existing high speed Internet connection instead of a phone line to transport the two-way audio of a telephone call. By using the Internet instead of your telephone line you bypass your telephone company and save money!

Virtually any high speed Internet connection will work with iCall, examples of the types of connections that work with iCall are:

  • Cable Modem
  • DSL
  • 3G Networks
  • Fiber optic networks (FIOS)
  • Office LAN/Ethernet

  

Is iCall really free?

Yes! iCall offers a variety of versions of our VoIP software, but the entry level “iCall Free Calling” product allows you to make and receive phone calls at no cost.

No credit card or payment of any type is required. In exchange for free calling you agree to listen to a brief 5-10 second advertisement before each call. We also hope that you will use the advertisers who pay to be included in our directory.

If you prefer not to hear a brief ad before each call, you can purchase iCall Total Access which provides ad free calling for a very low monthly fee.

#ScratchGate: iPhone 5 Owners finding that Aluminum Is Much Softer Than Glass!

New iPhone 5 owners are quickly discovering that there are some advantages, but there are some inherent downsides. The iPhone 5 hit stores last Friday, it is the lightest, thinnest, most sleek iPhone yet!

However, it is reported that because the slender iPhone 5 has an anodized aluminum back plate and since aluminum is a relatively soft material, (instead of one made of Corning glass as in the iPhone 4/4S), it is reported that the iPhone 5 shows more wear and tear than previous models. The iPhone 4 was a magnet for fingerprints. The iPhone 5 attracts scratches and scrapes about as easily.

Apple has long used the material for the colored iPods so the iPhone 5 isn’t Apples first device to employ anodized aluminum. They use the aluminum because the material is easy to work with and very light (compared to stainless steel).

Anodized aluminum can be painted nearly any color, it allows for a large range of color options. Available colors for the iPhone 5 are; black/grey and white/ (but remember this coating is only a few layers deep since is is in the first few layers of the metal, just a dye sitting in the top layers of the aluminum). Reportedly; since aluminum is a relatively soft metal the thin layer of paint can be penetrated pretty easily.

iFixit shows in the video below that the iPhone 5′s finish and how it can withstand keys or rings. You will see in the video that it scratches pretty easily. They note in the video that the iPhone 4 withstood the real-world scratch tests with ease!

New iphone 5 owners, please comment and let us know what your view is on this new material for the new iPhone5!
