Unless you’re on a tariff dedicated to making international calls, even the shortest of long-distance chats costs an arm and a leg. iPhone users looking to make regular calls abroad, or even just the odd ring to a long distance pal, may want to try out Time to Call.
Built by leading global telecoms provider Vonage, the app provides pay-per-call dialing to 190 countries far cheaper than through standard tariffs.
Using a Wi-Fi connection, the app features a simple billing system that charges your calls to your iTunes account, keeping it as secure as Apple app payments and avoiding the need to set up another confusing billing system.
“With the launch of Time to Call, Vonage has simplified the process of making affordable international calls for iPhone users around the globe,” said Marc Lefar, CEO of Vonage.
“Not only does this service offer tremendous value for international callers dialing from their home countries, it also provides a great solution for international travelers who want to avoid the bill shock associated with international calls and roaming charges when they call back home. Time to Call requires far less effort than calling card services and other international calling plan options, and is substantially less expensive than dialing direct through a mobile carrier. It’s simple, fast and fair.”
For a limited time, Vonage are offering a free 15 minute international call to all Time to Call users too.
