On November, 8, 2011, AT&T released AT&T Call International, a free mobile VoIP for its smartphone customers. The application was developed with the assistance of 8x8, Inc., a major provider of unified communications solutions.
AT&T Call International allows users to make calls from the United States to international phone numbers at regular airtime rates. Smartphone customers who are traveling abroad can also experience the same rates if they use the mobile app through a Wi-Fi connection, though this feature is not available in some countries (including Iran, Syria, China, Cuba, India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kenya, North Korea, Costa Rica and Vietnam.)
If the user does not yet have an AT&T Call International account, the mobile app provides step-by-step instructions on how to sign up for the service. Users also have the option of making international phone calls through the app or dialing from an existing contact list. Any calls that are made through the service are billed directly to the user’s credit card. There is also no need to call up AT&T to make changes to the account since billing and personal information can be modified online.
The mobile app is available as a free download for the iPhone, Android and Blackberry. It can currently be found at the Android Market and BlackBerry Appworld.
