So you’ve probably added all your old friends from your hometown via Facebook. While it’s fun to “like” their latest pictures and status updates but you really don’t want to waste your minutes on them, your problem is solved. Vonage has teamed up with Facebook, creating an app for your iPhone, (& Android), entitled Vonage Mobile for Facebook that allows free calls over Wi-Fi or 3G to anyone domestic or overseas, for free.

After you download the free app, just sign in with your Facebook account and you’ll see a list of your friends who’ve done the same, and are ready to be called for free. You will also see whom you can chat with over IM. If you don’t have unlimited 3G, or a Wi-Fi subscription, your first move should be checking with your carrier to figure out any charges that may apply to you.

Of course the program has its own Facebook page, which will allow you to invite your friends to the download the free app. This all sounds great, but I have one question. How many people are actually going to do this? Are you?

    Now that looks promising. I just need a friend to install this also so I can give it a try.

    • Let us know how it works!

  • Jacky

    I will for sure try this. I will get my gf to do it too. because we are having long distance relationship and this will help us shorten the distance much more and as long as it free. 🙂

  • Jacky: The joys of AT&T’s mobile to mobile free calling are great. My son’s mother and I both have iPhone’s under AT&T, thus we talk to each other free. Since I talk to her for the minutes of anyone in my contacts, it saves minutes.

    Okey. This app can be a good app. But I tried this one with my girlfriend and I couldn’t hear what she said. At first I thougt, this app is maybe worth using. But after 20 seconds I couldn’t hear here. Can get better in future updates.

    Why not stick to skype? Simple and popular. And with the new iPhone 4 they will probably include FaceTime for mobile-mobile, mobile-desktop video chatting. I use it all the time and it works great. My parents get to see their grandson at no cost to either.

    This app is great ! I used it today, now if only more the 2 of my Facebook friends uses a iPhone this app would make it on to the first page on my iPhone

  • Sounds like it’s getting mixed reviews. (Of Course).
    For those whove had success, were you on Wi-Fi or 3G?

    • Burge

      I was on wifi. Still got to give 3G ago

  • Jacky

    I had try the 3G version of this. The quality of the conversation was not as good. You can hear your own voice at the end echo back and it very choppy too. Can’t have two person talk at the same time.
