iCall, a service that allows for free calls on the computer and web, has come across an interesting revelation in the new iPhone/iPad, Apple has dropped the restriction that made it impossible to have VoIP calls over 3G.
In a news release, the company declared that it is now â€œthe first and only VoIP application that functions on the iPhone, ipad and iPod touch over cellular 3G networks.â€ Regardless, there is now at least one app on the market that can make 3G VoIP phone calls.
Now that the restrictions have been lifted, you can expect Skype to soon work over 3G networks. Itâ€™s server-side, rather than software-side, so there shouldnâ€™t be a need to download a new version of Skype to get this functionality. The Google Voice for iPhone should also benefit from this change.
