CNET Editors' review
The VoIP solution to international calling isn't for everyone. Luckily, Packet8 offers an easy alternative with Mobile Talk, a no-fuss app that nestles onto your phone and connects you to a local number for a cheaper international call.
MobileTalk lives inertly on your phone until you dial your number, then delays the call by a few seconds to connect you to a local number, then pushes the call through to your destination. Payment conveniently arrives as a separate credit card charge on your statement when you set up your account. The costs are comparable to other phone card and VoIP-out services--that's about 2-3 cents per minute to most of Europe and 3-5 cents to most of Asia. Doubting Thomases can track call costs from their online account as they speak. Because Packet8 MobileTalk requires you to do absolutely nothing, it's the kind of set-up that will appeal to any smartphone owner who prefers to set and forget.It's a good idea to stay alert, however, and make certain that MobileTalk engages when you've begun your call. If the service weren't to initiate, the financial fallout could be considerable.
Packet8 Mobile Talk works with Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, iPhone, Symbian, Palm, and other Java phones.
Packet8 MobileTalk lets cell phone users reduce their international calling rates by as much as 90%--quickly and easily. No more special PIN codes to keep track of. No more long access numbers to dial. Just the highest quality digital voice service and great calling rates to any of your international locations. For a limited time, no monthly access fees.
With MobileTalk, you'll never run out of minutes or leave your international call quality up to chance. And, you can view your call history, and your MobileTalk savings, from anywhere in the world.
