Well, Skype has met Google Voice, and the result? A free iPhone app that makes voice calls....VOIP and the cost? Zero. It'll make calls to another iPhone that has Viber using the app and not your iPhone app. The hook? The receiving phone has to have Viber too. Otherwise, the call will be routhed through the iPhone app. If it goes through Viber, you use zero minutes. Now, that's limited, but say you're in a low reception area, it'll use Wi-Fi, and there's the perk of free international calls. As this becomes more popular, it's usefulness will increase. What about quality? Better than AT&T or so swears Lifehacker. Go get it. It's free in the iTunes App Store.
