CNET Editors' review

Vonage Mobile is a nifty way to get free calls and texts, but only if you don't mind that it's frequently offline. It has a gorgeous layout and other good perks, though. Add in some decent call quality and a video-calling feature over Wi-Fi and 3G/4G, and you've got the makings of a good app.

Like most similar apps, calls, texts, and video chats are only free if your friend uses the service. During testing, only two contacts were already on the app. That's not a ringing endorsement. However, inviting people to Vonage Mobile is really easy and you get credit for third-party calls by doing it. You can find that and all of the app's other features right from its stylish menu. It brings up an alternate dialer and text inbox that look better than what Android offers by default. You can even browse your regular contacts. Unfortunately, the app was offline frequently during testing. The 50 percent of the time that it lets you make a call, the video quality was really solid. Audio was touch-and-go, which is unexpected from a company that's been doing voice calls for so long.

If all of your friends are already using Vonage Mobile, then this app is worth downloading. However, if you already use Skype or Viber, this one might not be cool enough to win you over.

    "Amazing Sound Quality, Love this app"

    February 14, 2012  |   By whateverman123

    Version: Vonage Mobile 1.02

    Pros

    High Def codecs for true HD voice when calling from app to app... makes a HUGE difference. Just love it. Messaging is great as well, very fast. The setup takes about 2 minutes, no userids, no passwords, etc. and it uses your phone number as your caller id like no other calling apps do.

    Cons

    Could use video, hopefully that comes soon in a later release. Could also use MMS instead of regular text messaging. Again, hopefully that stuff comes in a later release. I read online that US minutes are only going to cost about one cent per minute after the free 3000 minute trial/gift is over... I'm reducing my AT&T minutes package accordingly... why pay $20 more to AT&T when I can pay $4 or $5 to Vonage app and use wifi and my unlimited data plan over 4g?

    Summary

    I just love it so far. It's a lot like Viber but allows you to call anywhere in the US or Canada right now for 3000 minutes for free. Compared to AT&T, that's like a $50 value, lol.
