Good news for Blackberry users – they can now make calls over wifi using Tringme’s newly launched application. Unlike other mobile platforms, so far there is not even a single native VoIP application on Blackberry, something which can make direct calls over WiFi/data-networks possible. All the existing VoIP applications uses either callback or local access number which eventually uses the cellular network to make calls. Few apps advertise it as VoIP without 3G or WiFi but due the limitation posed by Blackberry platform.
TringMe has launched a ‘true’ VoIP application for blackberry enabling BB users to make VoIP calls over wifi (doesn’t require your cellular minutes to make VoIP calls). In case you do not have Wifi, TringMe gives you local access numbers and callback options available to place your calls.
Download the application from http://bb.tringme.com and when you make a call from contact book or call logs screen, TringMe will ask you if you would like route the call through TringMe.
You can also make conference calls using the Wifi service. In the application, select contacts from within the application and either use the conference menu item.
For the records, TringMe’s ‘Call over Wifi’ service for Blackberry is world’s first.
